We'd better go down for breakfast.
We'd better get inside.
We'd spent little quality time together.
We could take two wagons, but that would mean we'd have to travel slow, and there wouldn't be any animals for riding except Bordeaux's horse.
As long as Quinn could place Howie in the past, we'd do everything in our power to support the effort.
He named a figure that surprised us by being far less than we'd guessed.
We all feel refreshed, as if we'd had a shower-bath.
Speaking of your mother, we'd better go in so she doesn't worry.
We'd have to pay seven rubles a cartload to Dorogobuzh and I tell them they're not Christians to ask it!
His mother lives there with him, so it's not like we'd be all alone out there.
We'd better go back.
We'd better get back to the apartment.
Howie left for his apartment shortly after we'd agreed to conduct his proposed test.
We'd better go in the back way or Mom will have my hide.
If you guys are through socializing, we'd better get moving.
All the same, we'd better get moving.
We'd have waited for you, but we was outnumbered three to one and didn't have time to look for you.
Between times we made plans for a trip to Iowa where I'd meet my in-laws for the first time and we'd firm up plans for our October wedding, to be held on Betsy's home turf.
If we could convince him to give you free rein to helping us with him remaining totally in the dark, we'd both have what we want.
We'd need a time and location.
While Merrill Cooms knew there were five of us and had spoken to each, we'd never identified which one of us held the gift.
I told him we'd get right on it.
We'd the decision up to Howie alone.
Quinn reacted as we'd grown to expect but Howie's visions became our afternoon project.
Betsy would be home from her road trip and together we'd take on Quinn.
We gave him our assurances we'd not violate his trust though I thought Betsy's suggestion was reasonable.
I assumed we'd discuss our latest findings but Howie, ever hyper in the secrecy department, disallowed any mention our activities in public.
I changed the subject and opened one of the bottles of wine we'd brought from New York.
"Besides," Quinn interrupted, "If I tried to set Howie that far back we'd be lucky to get within twenty miles of New Bedford and a couple of days of the killing.
Instead we speculated on what we'd personally do if we had this gift or curse and it proved to be a true trip to the past.
Our little group anguished over our decision once we were back together, alternating between chastising and applauding what we'd done.
The rest of us looked to Howie, all of us wondering what roads we'd travel forward.
Think of the risks we'd all be exposed to.
We'd be accusing people of serious crimes!
Then Howie asked if we'd try to run a session this weekend, long distance, by phone.
We would have arrived earlier if we'd driven.
True feelings lay hidden in the wonder of what we'd accomplished.
We'd decided a transcription of our conversation might sometime prove valuable.
We'd discussed this point among ourselves numerous times over the past months.
We'd then cross our fingers and see what particulars would follow.
We'd built up a library of recorded sessions but became concerned about properly securing them.
The downside of setting up identities was that someone would learn more detail about us than we'd previously released.
The rest of us waited in nervous anticipation for her Friday arrival, not knowing if we'd even see her when she returned.
Brennan tossed aside our concern, citing the lives we'd saved.
We'd better get the kids ready.
Otherwise we'd be doomed to spinstership.
We'd drive Peabody, Massachusetts, two weeks before our wedding.
When we'd finished, he remained with the women instead of retreating upstairs.
I guess I looked funny, so he asked me outright, if we'd been lovers.
Our new life in Keene produced a comfortable level of contentment we'd never previously experienced.
We'd learned to accommodate one another's quirks with no more than a raised eyebrow.
"I think we'd better stick to the river, after this," said Dorothy.
"Perhaps we'd really better not wake him," he said hesitating.
"Yes, yes: go, dear boy, and have a look," he would say to one or another of those about him; or, "No, don't, we'd better wait!"
We'd better get ready for lunch.
