As they approached the building, a large group of people came out whooping and yelling.
They rounded the corner of the building to see a group of men lounging against the fence, watching a display that made Carmen's blood run cold.
It was a pleasant escape from the dust and noise of the building going on above them.
As the path turned, the broad side of a metal building came into view, nestled at the foot of a cliff.
The black car sat outside the building with its trunk open.
After a while Giddon and the driver emerged from the building.
Giddon went back into the building and Lisa made her way through the darkening woods to the spot in the drive where she had entered.
There was probably an innocent explanation for the scene at the building.
What she needed to do was get a look inside the building and put her fears to rest.
Getting into that building was getting more important all the time.
Giddon had barely left the yard on Diablo and Lisa instantly recognized it as a chance to investigate the building.
Her plan was to approach the building from the back parking lot.
Dodging cobwebs by the dozens, she pushed on until deciding she had reached a point behind the building.
Pushing through some sumac that she thought bordered the clearing where the building stood, she squinted up at the sun.
Where was the building - and the trail?
They hadn't traveled far down the trail before she got a peripheral view of the building.
Still, if she could get into that building and find out, it might ease her mind.
That didn't explain what she had seen at the building.
But then, there was the exchange at the building.
Maybe Yancey would be more careful in the future about using the threat of bears as a method of keeping Lisa away from that building.
What was in the building that he didn't want her to see?
She had to get back there and see what was in the building.
Enough time to walk back to the building.
It was Yancey standing outside that shop, and with him were the man from the building and Allen.
As long as she didn't wind up at that building, her safety was of no real concern.
Maybe if he saw that she didn't go near the building, he would relax his guard.
One way or another, she had to get into that building.
Her gaze wandered to the path to the building.
If she could only get inside that building.
Hopefully, the why of it wouldn't come out until she could explore that building.
She had to get into that building and find out if there was any chance of a relationship with Yancey.
No one was in sight when she reached the building, but the door was open.
Silently, she slipped into the building.
A quick glance through the window revealed the black car stopping beside the building.
She waited until Yancey came back in, but he only locked the door to the office and left, closing the door to the building.
He was walking down the path, back to the building.
He knew she was not in the chair, but he had no way of knowing she had been to the building.
She wasn't supposed to know about the building.
I went into the building today.
If she had asked about the building when we passed it, I might have figured she had never seen it, but she pretended she didn't notice.
But I heard you talking to that man in the black suit when I was in the building.
He motioned to the others to follow and they all went down the path to the building.
The building she had spent more than a month trying to get into and now was the site of an open house.
There must be a fortune right here in this building.
Howard slapped Len on the back playfully and turned to leave the building.
Their lives were now entwined with the two people they left alone in that building.

He shifted uncomfortably and glanced at a building.
At the edge of town the sound of hammers announced the building of another hotel.
A red brick municipal building stood at the far end of the street ahead of us.
"Let's see if the brick building has a museum or historical collection of some kind," Betsy said as we approached the building.
An elderly man in bib overhauls alighted and went in the building.
She was eager to answer our questions and invited us into the building.
"Did you have kin from here?" she asked as she unlocked the building and guided us into a large office that smelled of cigars and dust.
"How old is this building," I asked.
She added, Most old pictures and records went up in smoke when the old building burned.
I then left the building and waited outside for the others who arrived moments later.

His ancient, rusted Camaro was illegally parked in front of the building.
"Toni, send your Traveler to grab the driver in the Camaro down the street," Dusty said, returning his gaze to the charred building in front of him.
By the time they entered the building, her arms and legs were responsive again.
He led her through the apartment building to an underground garage and to a sleek, black sports car with black interior.
The building swayed gently in the strong winds whipping through southern Florida, and water pelted the windows across from her.
He's in your condo building.
He knows I won't take the building down with all the humans.
"Evac and implode the building before dawn," Dusty said.
Dusty gazed at his condo building.
Dusty, can I go to watch the building explode?
You remember how your condo building came down this morning an hour before you planned?
He rigged the building but didn't blow it.
Coldness, then the sound of the storm beating the building around him.

She tried to distract the building panic.
He gobbled everything he could grab as if building energy for the balance of his coast-to-coast trek.
The rocking chairs were back, four in a row, red, green, yellow, and purple, adding a blaze of color against the century-old white building of Bird Song.

The Buen, as everyone referred to it, was located in a hundred year old structure previously known as the Scott-Humphries Building, which had remained vacant for over twenty-five years.
Dean promised himself to keep driving past the building if the deputy Larkin's car was in evidence, but only the sheriff's vehicle was present.
She rose to go into the building.
Fred began sorting through his papers, taking his time, building the suspense.
Dean moved into the shade and closer to the building for better reception.
Fitzgerald paused, building the tension.
After introductions, Dean was led to a laboratory in the rear of the building.
There were four units in the building that faced the waterway and walking paths that wound along the banks of the river.
As Dean neared the structure, a figure emerged from the building.
Dawkins mumbled and apology and left the building.
As they were leaving the building, the phone rang.
As he left the building, he glanced at his watch.
Dean could picture him and the old man breaking into the storage building in the dead of night.
One of the three owners of the storage building is named Fitzgerald!
When Dean returned to Bird Song, it was mid-morning, but if he expected a quiet empty building with the Dawkinses at the courthouse and the rest of the clientele enjoying the splendors of Ouray, he was wrong.
Fitzgerald wasn't in the building.
He pocketed it, turned and left the building.
As Dean left the building, the jailer sauntered back to Fred's cell.
Her eagerness lasted until she stepped from the apartment building to the sidewalk lining a busy street.
She hadn't heard the demon drop from the top of the building to land a few feet behind her.

He's building an Army of Souls to attack the human world.
Building their relationship would mean easing into intimacy once more.
This very building was the one Gabriel dived off of in an attempt to keep the terrified human from trying to kill herself.
Entertained by her pep talk with the flowers, Deidre reached her towering apartment building a short time later and paused to collect the mail.
Anger building again, Gabe strode forward.
She inched towards the edge of the building.
She hadn't planned on jumping off her building, but the events of this night made the idea more appealing than having her head severed from her body or ending up a pile of bones in a bathtub.
Wind whipped up the building and tossed her hair.
I dive off a building, and now I'm having a tea party?
"Which is located near my apartment building," Deidre said, needing the brandy again already.
If he ever leapt off another building, he'd choose pavement, which might have some give to it.
He could think of nothing more appealing than kicking his mate's ass, as much for leaping off the building as for making him feel what he did when he saw her jump.
He'd ignored the demons swarming her apartment building and followed her over the side of the building.
"Because spending eternity with someone who hates me is better than leaping off a building how?" she snapped.
That's not the way a functional relationship works, she said, anger building.
Without looking back, Deidre walked through it and emerged on a familiar beach, the same one she'd ended up on when she leapt from her apartment building.
One minute, telling me you don't want anything to do with me beyond your duty and the next, sitting on the beach with me for hours because you're worried I'll find a tall building to dive off of, she grumbled.
He will know before you have a chance to kiss him, she said, her fury building.
There was no handle on the outside of the door she'd just walked through, no number on the building.
She rubbed her head, wondering if the kid lived somewhere else in the building while unable to shake the sense that something was really, really wrong.
Kris left, and Gabriel closed his eyes, crossing into the shadow world before emerging on the street outside the woman's apartment building.
Kris chuckled, at ease with his brother despite the unprotected penthouse on the top floor of a building that could be easily leveled by a single explosive charge.
Her eyes fell to the entryway in front of the elegant building in which she stayed, then to the street further down, where several forms moved from beneath a canopy, trailed by a shadow darker than night.
Another boom, another flash of light outside the window, another shudder as the building struggled to stand upright.
There were balconies along the far side of the building that hadn't been destroyed.
Any thought she had at Andre's apartment not being the target fled as she saw the damage done to her side of the building.
She saw dark figures jump from the top of the building across from her to the ground, unaffected by what seemed like a thirty-story drop.
They wove their way through the panicked crowds toward Andre's building.
She pressed the front of her body against the building, dug her fingertips into indents in the stone, and slid her foot along the roughened ledge to the right, stepping slowly and forcing her head up.
She started moving again, panic rising as she realized not all the attackers in the building across the street had jumped to the street.
The robed man led her into the fortress and wound his way through bright intersections, down stairs, and into a more opulent part of the building.

Jerome Shipton passed Dean in the hall, holding the side of his head, and left the building as Dean hung up the phone.
The wind blew the entire night, creaking and groaning about the old building in a mournful dirge.
She was the sole guest remaining in the building as the sisters were off for a Sunday tour of the town.
As they came in sight of the building, two men were lugging Shipton's belongings to a waiting car.
Fully alert, he listened, but heard only night noises, the ticking of the hall clock, a slight breeze, the ever-present furnace rumbling heat to the old building.
The building was a superb example of craftsmanship from an era when quality was meant to survive those skilled men who proudly worked it.
The building stood there, gazing down on the quiet town like some magnificent matron, watching over her citizens as she had for a hundred years.
You're correct that there wouldn't be time for him to race downstairs and out of the building.

Dan activated one of the buttons on his command headpiece that sent his rally orders out to the soldiers in the building.

Heat pulsed off the building in waves, aided by a soft, cold breeze.
Dan cursed as he trotted from an area to the side of the building.

From a pay phone in the lobby of the large building, he placed a call to the Parkside Police Department.
Ethel lived in the pride of Parkside, a new six-story luxury apartment building southeast of town.
Dean planned to send a patrol car by later to pick up some clothes but his trip home passed within a block of Parsons Street and on an impulse, he drove by the building.
