The women at the Sanctuary said they pulled him out of the water, and he looks awful.
She couldn.t see the Sanctuary through her blurry eyes, just the blue of water and the tan sand beneath her hands.
She started to chicken out when one went over her head and filled her mouth with salt water.
Katie stood on her tiptoes and looked up, taking one last look at the blue sky before she held her breath and ducked beneath the water.
She swam as far from the beach as she could, expelled her breath, then drew in a mouthful of water.
Wow. Are you really ready to use outhouses and haul your own water?
Her presence would make the rivers run with water again and bring new life to the dying planet.
I have no planet, half an army, no food or water for my people, and I must broker a peace deal.
A'Ran desperately needed allies, food, and water for his people.
And yet, he couldn't help feeling as if he alone bore the weight of his planet on his back as he struggled to pay for food, water, and weapons.
Hot water ran over her head and down her body, soothing her.
"Gage, water," he ordered.
She hesitated, but Talal entered and reappeared several moments later with a small bowl of water.
Trickling water circled the oasis, its source a small spring in the center.
"And the mines give us nothing we can use to barter for more food and water," his uncle added.
If there was grass, there was bound to be water somewhere.
She rustled through the pod to see if there was any water or food.
One handed her a water canteen, and she drank long and deep, not stopping even when another took her arm and pulled her forward.
"There aren't many good water sources," she murmured.
He motioned for her to sit and brought her food and water.
Water shot from the bottom of the canyon, forming hundreds of tall columns whose mist cast rainbows in the bright moonlight.
She stared at him, then at the water.
A burst of wind sent water from the closest column raining over them.
Grass tickled her knees, and she shifted, agitated by water and grass.
"Water!" he replied, throwing his arm toward the canyon.
The warriors regained themselves first and crossed to the edge of the canyon, unaffected by the water spraying on them.
The distant roar of water pouring into the canyon caught her attention.
She looked at each of the warriors, who watched the water as if they'd never seen it before.
She'd wondered why A'Ran's water supplies were located on the nearest moon, a logistical obstacle.
The thought that they had no water on the planet itself had never occurred to her.
The encampment was a flurry of activity, and she wondered how much was normal and how much was related to the water.
There's water now, A'Ran, she managed, struggling not to cry.
Mansr says there will be water as long as I'm on Anshan.
"Water," he said, an odd note in his voice.
To her surprise, moonlight glinted off the water of the newly formed lake that filled the canyon.
She handed Evelyn a small bowl of water and then moved to Kiera, handing her a translator.
Later, the serendipitous drippings were augmented by additional piping, carrying excess water to spray even more surface of the rock walls.
We try to keep water in the base but the tree drinks it as fast as a sailor on a twelve hour leave.
They dripped streams of water as soon as the sun began its business, the remaining moisture forming dragon-teeth icicles as soon as the cold air touched the droplets.
Shipton claimed Jerry fell in the water while they were shooting rapids and Shipton himself nearly drowned trying to save him.
But it was August and that river isn't exactly world-class white water.
They water up in the cold.
A massive collection of sinister looking implements was growing—tools of their trade, all apparently necessary in order to remain aloft when maneuvering up or down perpendicular columns of frozen water.
They're not much for dancing, but they are a must for climbing frozen water!
Your tent has to protect against wind, water and snow to maintain a warm and dry climate inside.
Imposing columns and pillars of ice were visible everywhere—massive icicles and mounds, built up from the spraying water tapped from the piping that paralleled the penstock.
Here it was quieter, though the sound of the water could still be heard in the distance.
After a few minutes rest, they continued, first hearing, then seeing the waterfall and the reservoir from which the penstock first drew the water for its mile-long trip to town.
He glanced back, far below, down at the water where a group was huddled, presumably around the victim.
"And water Alice," Cynthia added, returning to the room.
The only sound was the rush of water at the base of the canyon.
Several days of unseasonable melt had boiled the river to a noisy torrent of cascading water.
Water dripped from above and tiny snowballs cascaded down the slope, bouncing off his un-helmeted head and under his collar as his line scoured the bank of snow above him.
He recalled none of this, nor his damaged body being placed on a litter at the narrow edge of the cascading water and lifted upward from the depth of the inaccessible gorge to the penstock path above.
There were easels, palettes, canvasses of every size, oils, water colors, sketch pads, pencil sets, brushes, virtually anything an artist would need.
Jackson lingered in the shower; bracing his hands on the wall, letting the water run on the back of his neck.
When she closed her laptop, Jackson said, "I thought after, we could head toward the water and find a restaurant for lunch, then walk the beach if it's not too cold."
After enjoying a leisurely lunch at a restaurant on the water, they walked barefoot on the beach holding hands.
Maybe we should get her some water.
Then you had some water, a few steaks, then held court with Sarah and Connor.
Frozen water pipes and unheated bedrooms had to be something new for a wealthy socialite.
She turned on the faucet, plunging her hands under the icy stream of water and gasped.
Inside the barn, Carmen filled two buckets with warm water and heaved them out of the sink.
Taking mincing steps so that the water wouldn't slosh out of the buckets, she worked her way toward the barn door.
Some day she was going to pipe water into the barn.
Two occupied stalls and he couldn't figure out where to put the water.
I was just trying to make sure he put the water in the correct stalls.
The only sound was the sucking sound their boots made in the mud and the soothing sound of flowing water down at the creek.
The chickens fought for position in the tiny coop door as they watched her pour a bucket of water into the tire.
Pushing each other aside, they buried their beaks in the water and lifted their heads, eyeing her suspiciously as the water trickled down their throats.
Then they sneezed and shook the cold water from their waddles and drank again.
The sound of running water from the bathroom proclaimed that Katie was taking a shower.
Alex had broken the ice off the top of the water trough by the time she got there and every stall was filled with fresh hay.
She heaved a warm bucket of water from the sink and suppressed a smile as she met his concerned gaze.
She held the gate as he carried the bucket of water into the stall.
She sloshed through the slushy snow, splashing icy water on the legs of her jeans.
No doubt Tessa was in labor and searching for a private place to give birth - some place high in the rocks, away from the water, but sheltered from the wind.
Carmen managed to get Tessa into a stall, and then hobbled to the dairy for some warm water.
You get Tessa some warm water.
The best thing she could do now was soak in some warm bath water, but there wasn't time.
At that moment, the bobber plunged under the surface of the water.
He stood and shook the water from his hands.
His words were like a dash of cold water.
They found a place on the side of the bridge and stared down at the water as it roared over the spillway.
She nodded and pointed at the old cypress water wheel.
The water goes under the wheel to turn it.
She stared at the churning water.
I think I forgot to turn the water off when I filled the trough.
I thought you were going to check the water.
You'll need to keep an eye on him and make sure he has plenty of water.
We carry our own water and testing equipment.
Water, I can understand.
Also, South Carolina contacted us regarding water for its residents in Charlotte.
I authorized the dispersal of two tons of water and twenty cases of rations from the emergency site in Raleigh along with hazmat drivers and twelve vehicles.
It will tide them over while they try to repair their water system.
The road edged a thatch of forest past the water treatment plant and the power plant, and circled the central command hub in which she worked before leading to the main entrance of the compound.
For now, food and water will be good.
Keep my men with food and water, and I'll marry you if our paths ever cross, he said.
There was no running water, no food supplies, no energy whatsoever, just a deteriorating building with a score of insurgents and a small black box.
He stepped through to a massive atrium with a marble floor, pillars, and water fountain surrounded by small gardens.
Light, water, you have food, too?
She sipped from a container of water and turned again to the wall behind the titanium glass, unable to pinpoint how one of the sensitive keypads had made it outside the compound or when.
No supplies, no water, no food, hundreds of thousands of refugees trying to survive on nothing.
"Down South, we call this energy water," he said.
Elise pursed her lips, and Lana was surprised to see her eyes water.
She touched the small vault containing the Horsemen in her cargo pants and sipped water.
She took a shower, as hot as it would go, and stayed until the hot water ran out.
Brady pulled out his water bottle as he listened.
Cold water soaked Lana's boots as Dan kept them on the creek's edge for a few hundred meters before veering into the surrounding forest.
The water stung her skin, and she grimaced as her attacker's blood ran down the drain.
Lana was in the kitchenette, drinking water after her day with Elise.
The cabin swayed, and Lana caught the image of wires and far below, water.
They were going into the black water, hundreds of feet beneath them.
She was ready to break down crying and throw herself out of the helo in the hopes she didn't die when she hit the water.
Once it hit water, it would inflate, and the water-breather would activate.
They smashed into the water.
Cold water poured into the cabin.
Lana fumbled with her harness and yanked it free, slogging through the rising water.
She struggled to pull herself out of the cabin, against the flow of cold river water.
She'd die if she stayed in the water.
She couldn't stand, not with her frozen body, and she rolled onto her back, out of the water.
As long as you have water, you only need to eat once a day.
She chewed her lip as she watched the micro map multiple routes, gauging how much food and water she'd have to carry to survive.
The terror on Lana's face was fresh in his thoughts, and he heard her scream again as he was flung from the helo, before it hit the water.
Four-story buildings had been built to the ceiling, flanking a narrow pathway and canal of water, siphoned from the Mississippi.
The metal lair was much cooler than the air above ground, and water stained the walls on one side of the tunnel.
Jim closed the door, and Lana watched the submarine sink quietly into the surrounding water and disappear.
Gabriel handed her the food and water gummy cubes she'd first had in Hell.
The idea of emeralds swimming around in a lake was too much for Katie. She felt nauseous again at her overwhelming situation and stopped, leaning against a tree. What she would give for a sip of real water!
"Start eating one every couple of hours," he said, holding out a handful of the food and water cubes.
She pushed herself up, reaching into a pocket for a food and water cube. Gabriel took her arm and pulled her to her feet. She nearly choked on the cubes and swallowed them whole, struggling to keep up with the death-dealer as he darted into the forest.
The water looked … black in the moonlight. She took a step back and looked up towards the moons. As Gabriel indicated, one moon was lower than the other.
Gabriel glanced at her and straightened. He handed her more food and water cubes then motioned for her to seat herself by the fire.
Katie ate her food and water cubes, waiting for Gabriel. She fingered the second necklace he'd given her, not convinced Andre was wrong. The beads felt like plastic, and something about Gabe had changed.
She counted the food and water cubes she had remaining.
Andre's eyes fell to her body. Katie pointed to the dagger, and Andre shook his head. She indicated the satchel next. He nodded. She frowned and pulled out the contents: food and water cubes, holding them up for him.
They ran until daylight then slowed. Gabe followed a trail Rhyn couldn't see that led them to a stream. The assassin stopped and knelt to splash water on his face.
Gabriel was gone. No one followed him, let alone spoke to him. Rhyn looked around uneasily, wondering who – or what – he'd been speaking to. He started back to the spot where they'd stopped for water. A few minutes later, Gabriel reappeared.
She handed the pale woman a food and water cube and popped two of her own. Standing, she waded into the brush where she'd thrown the knife. It glinted in the morning light. Katie swiped it, glad the trees didn't have a taste for metal as well as Immortal sustenance.
More thunder boomed. Katie wondered what other kinds of storms the underworld might have. Would it rain something other than black water? With her luck, it'd rain bugs, like the beetle nest she skirted.
She needed sleep and real food. Her hand went instinctively to her stomach, and she couldn't help wondering if the food and water cubes were good for the baby.
Gabe stepped closer to the Lake. Even through the black water, he could see the green souls at the bottom.
I only took it off to shower, and that was only because I was afraid that the water might ruin it.
He moved forward until the sound of the sea and the firmness of the sand suggested he was close to the water's edge.
A breeze picked up at the shoreline, wrinkling the water as the waves slowly rolled toward him in silver lines.
He slapped the hat back on his head, took a deep breath and began to slowly walk toward the water.
Jeff liked the water and especially loved the ocean.
Dean staggered to the shower, letting the ice-cold water start his day anew.
"There are occasions in life when financial caution gets tossed out the window," he added, "son. That's all water under the bridge.
He had undressed and was in the bathroom splashing water on his booze-numbed face when the lights suddenly failed.
She was drenched to the skin and rivulets of water ran down her shivering body.
Cynthia was as limp as a rag doll as he pulled down her skirt, which was heavy with water.
The sound of running water in the next room told Dean that daylight had finally arrived and Cynthia Byrne was up and around.
The bullet hole hadn't been visible at first due to Wassermann's long hair, the condition of the body, and the length of time in the water.
"Water under the bridge," he answered.
He swore the water pistol found outside couldn't have been the weapon.
It started out as a joke with a water pistol until the storeowner shoved 89 dollars at them and ducked under the counter screaming his head off.
The two boys ran out of the store, as frightened as the old man—only they presumably held their water.
She reached down behind the desk and brought out a bottle of gin and poured two healthy slugs into water glasses.
With a full water bottle and a full stomach and legs warmed to the rhythm of the ride, he became molded into a near trance as he churned up the Colorado miles.
But, it was all water under the bridge.
After cleaning his water bowl out in the big stainless steel sink, she filled the bowl with water and set it on the floor near his food bowl.
When she walked back through the dairy, Brutus was lapping water.
The soothing sound of water running over stones greeted them as they neared the creek.
Brutus wandered upstream, pausing to lap at the cool water.
She swung out and at the precise moment, let go, holding her nose and plunging into the water feet first.
The water was icy and she gasped as she came to the surface.
It wouldn't take more than a few minutes in this heat before she would be ready to jump back into the water.
Pulling her hair back, she squeezed water out of it and then fluffed it with her fingers to release the natural curls.
She walked down to the creek and waded through the water.
The sound of the water rushing over rocks and the coolness of the water lifted her spirits.
Would you mind getting us some ice water?
He got the ice water and then sat down in his chair.
I couldn't - the water is over the bridge.
It had finally stopped raining, but the water had not receded yet.
Carmen barely had the rope unwrapped from the horn before water and debris shoved the tree further.
With the obstruction removed, water plunged down the creek bed, dragging debris with it.
Now that I'm not staying there, I don't have to worry about running out of water to take a bath.
