While the crow-flies distance across the gaping gorge was only a half-mile, Dean was at least twenty minutes away in driving time.
It was only moments later when his fears were realized by the gnashing, booming, ripping sound of metal on rock, echoing across the valley like a clap of thunder, repeating and repeating, as if car after car had met a similar fate, further and further away.
It was still light enough to see across the gorge when an opening in the trees allowed, but the long swing to the far end of valley was away from the direction the vehicle had driven and blocked from sight by the curve of the canyon.
As the sun climbed over the mountains, it spread its glow across the snow still nestled in the cracks and crevices above him.
He took the chair across the room.
The ding-dong prompted the pair to look across the bed to shame the other into a bathrobe to answer the door.
Her hand shot out before Dean could see it, slapping him across the face so hard four finger prints glowed in red on his cheek.
No, Dean had no idea what might attract Patsy to drive across the plains.
She pulled up a chair and the Deans took seats across from her.
He looked across the vehicle, smiled, and got in.
That's across state lines—upsets the Feds.
The human was lost the moment Darkyn's name appeared across her back.
He circled the small, blonde woman and stopped behind her, gaze on Gabriel's name, which was written across her back, along with the Immortal mating script.
His back was to her, his arms crossed, and his t-shirt stretched tightly across his thick back and shoulders.
Her Gabriel, who spent his life a part of the shadows, radiated the quiet power of a deity that reached her from across the room.
Gabriel sat down across from his mate, studying her.
A smiled spread across his face.
Dawn would soon break across the horizon on this side of the world.
Shadows played across the delicate, pert features.
The tension melted from Gabriel's shoulders as he sat on the settee across from Andre.
All we know is that they appeared in over fifty lakes across the world.
Darkyn motioned to the wall across the kitchen.
Only when the moon was halfway across the sky did he rouse himself.
The ocean breeze made her dress move as if it was alive, and her pink hair swept across her features.
The front door swung open behind her and his boots clicked across the hardwood floor, stopping at the kitchen doorway.
"I love it when you do that," she whispered as he carried her across the courtyard.
She stepped back to avoid his hand and tripped over one of the paint cans, falling and sliding across the floor.
At the same time boots ran across the porch.
It swung around, nose down and then darted off across the field and up into the sky.
The knife scraped across it, deflecting it away from his heart.
White high-heeled sandals clicked smartly as she walked across the porch behind Alex.
Slowly a smile worked its way across his mouth, bringing warmth to her face.
The surface of the pond was as smooth as glass, reflecting a small fluffy cloud as it floated across the inky sky.
Something big and dark was moving across the field.
Yet there it was, big as life, walking across the field toward the tree line.
Instead of seating himself on the traditional doctor's stool, Dr. Wynn sat beside her on the table, hands folded across one knee.
His brown hair was tousled from the ocean breeze, and he was dressed in jeans and a loose shirt fastened across the golden skin of his chest by one button.
You've gone so far as to eliminate some of the enemies who likewise stumbled across her.
She met his gaze at last, a red flush creeping across her face.
Gabe strode to the lectern and watched the words of the Present being written across the pages.
Rhyn was right about the demons; Gabe smelled demon blood and saw the gashes across Logan's throat.
"C'mere, Harmony," Gabe said, using his magic to project the quiet order across the lake.
After seeing his name tattooed across her back and the look of pure murder on his face, she hid in the closet until certain he was gone.
Deidre flung herself into his arms, pulling his face down to spread kisses across his features.
He sat down across from Deidre, and she would've tried to run again, if her body worked right.
The sight of his name across her shoulders made his body hot with anger and need that left him frustrated.
She'd barely finished her omelet when the two people from the other table sat across from her.
Her gaze passed over the faces in the crowd across the street.
She started across the street and down the road.
"Exactly. I mean, look at this," she twisted so he could see Gabriel's name across her shoulders.
Moonlight played across his chiseled features.
The warm energy crept across her skin and into her blood.
Wynn motioned to the chair across from him.
A flush spread across the woman's face, and anger glittered in her eyes.
Toby stood beside a plainly pregnant young woman with blue eyes and a tattoo across her neck that resembled the one on Deidre's back in color and otherworldly script.
Its edges were gilded with gold marking a lazy geometric design across the marble.
Two brightly lit, massive bronze chandeliers dangled at even distances across the ceiling.
He wiped his face and sat facing her on the edge of the balcony's railing, arms folded across his chest and legs crossed at the ankle.
She couldn't see the far end of the lake from her viewpoint, but she was able to see across the narrow panhandle.
Wynn's gaze was on the figures across the lake, his impassive features bathed in green light.
"I thought…" He considered her then looked across the lake again.
Her jacket was draped over a chair across the room.
Gabriel walked across the room to a dresser.
Her gaze swept hungrily over his body as he strode across the room, away from her.
He went one-by-one, checking the minds of each with the occasional glance across to Rhyn and Andre, who were speaking quietly.
"Do me the favor and don't bring Wynn back," Rhyn said, anger flashing across his features.
His shirt stretched tightly over his shoulders and across his back while his biceps flexed and the roped muscles of his forearms rippled with his tinkering.
She shivered at the tingling massage traveling across her scalp and into her brain.
Wynn stretched across the distance to grasp it as it started to slide from her hands.
Darkyn waited for her in the circle that stretched about five meters across.
A second settled across the lower half of her face and two more around her torso.
She was halfway across the room when what she'd seen registered.
Deidre's breath caught at the name scrolled across the narrow shoulders.
Gabriel turned the pages of the Oracle's book, watching as words scribbled themselves across the parchment, updating a chain of events that changed with every decision made by the Council That Was Seven.
His energy sapped, the kid was sprawled half asleep across the race car bed.
Her eyes settled on a form across the street, so still and dark he would've been a shadow if not for his presence beneath a street lamp.
She sat across from him, cocoa with marshmallows before both of them.
The death dealer stood at the edge of the shadows as he had across from the doctor's office, waiting.
Sometimes he could see out into the hallway and the empty cell across from his; sometimes he couldn't.
Today, the cell across from his wasn't empty.
He moved the sword off her favorite chair without answering and placed it on the trench stretched across her couch.
Kris slid two rare green life crystals across the table, the common form of payment for an assassination not ordered by Death herself.
His features were chiseled, the firelight casting harsh shadows across the planes of his face.
He was muscular and tall, clothed in dark jeans, a snug grey T-shirt that hugged his biceps and stretched across his chest and back and then sagged at his slender torso and hips, and a round black medallion that fell from his T-shirt as he leaned over her.
He perched on the edge of the desk, the fire casting shadows across his perfect, chiseled features.
The man with the jewel-toned eyes strode across the study without a look at her.
His trusted deputies --the slender blonde Iliana and the raven-haired gigantor Jade with cocoa skin --sat across from him.
Amusement flashed across the death dealer's face, and Gabriel shook his head.
Worse, they'd never run across this type of issue in all their years.
Several portals glowed, and he strode across the silent domain toward the portal he needed.
The boy had clambered across her bed, shrieked happily, and chased the cat under the bed.
For a moment, she thought she saw tattoos blaze across his neck and then disappear.
She tossed back the whiskey, meeting his gaze only when he placed his hand across the top of the carafe.
We'll be going to a soiree across the street in about an hour.
The street below was narrower than it appeared on TV and packed with cars and elegantly dressed men and women walking to a gathering across the street --probably the soiree Andre had mentioned.
It hadn't come from the sky but from one of the buildings across the street, diagonal to her.
She squeezed through the hole in the wall to find there wasn't enough of the floor left to walk on let alone make it to the door across the apartment.
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.
She started moving again, panic rising as she realized not all the attackers in the building across the street had jumped to the street.
Across the street, she imagined the man with the rockets taking careful aim at her.
Her only chance at safety was across a swath of broken glass.
A hood went over her head, and she was flung across someone's shoulder hard enough to make her ribs flare with pain.
Sasha left without even a smartass remark, and Rhyn rose, gazing with interest across the hall.
He growled deep and low, glaring at the woman across the hall.
The woman across the hall held the same beguiling aura.
Across from them was another cell, this one darkened.
The creature across the hall growled.
I don't have the appetite of the beast, he said, lifting his chin to the glowing silver eyes across the corridor.
The beast across the hall roared and threw itself against its prison.
She stared at the beast across the hall staring at her and soon heard Lankha's snores.
She moved to the bars at the front of her cell, aware of the beast across the hall doing the same with a growl.
She stared with surprise at the low growl from the darkened cell across from her.
It's the human you threw in the cell across from me, isn't it?
Even as Rhyn spoke, he was disturbed by the thought of the frazzled but sweet woman across the hall from him falling to his brother.
The monster across the hall was no option, and Jared was little better.
The word "HOSTEL" was emblazoned across the side of what looked like a large red barn/bar in the center of the village.
He eased into the chair across from her and poured them both tea as she dialed.
With the old man's help, she caught the last ferry across the channel just before sunset.
She thought she saw tattoos flash across his exposed chest.
He pulled a pillow across his face, ignoring her.
He guided her through the fog, and they emerged in a dark room with the light of streetlamps filtering through two windows across what looked another hotel room.
She sat on the river bank across from a series of wide, large steps leading up a hill to the park where the Arch stood, framed against a black sky.
The woman motioned them to follow, her quick steps echoing across the cobblestones.
But you, Rhyn, have somehow managed to kill every mortal you run across!
His eyes glinted rather than flashed, his copper skin tight across perfect, chiseled features.
The pad of his thumb traced across her lower lip.
He'd massacred every human she'd run across to date.
His arms were folded across
The black-haired woman had dark Mediterranean skin and tattoos down her back and across her shoulders.
Even if not for Rhyn's name scrawled across her neck, she'd draw attention.
He looked at her closely, a slow smile spreading across his face.
While their dress was different, their faces were similar: stunning beauties from across history.
Katie clicked the phone off and looked at the five-year-old doing wind sprints across her apartment.
He trudged across the bedroom, climbing into bed with her without asking.
He scampered across the lab to a fridge that held cold tools and bottles of mysterious serums, everything except what a normal person put in a fridge.
A tea kettle was already whistling when they entered, and the maid rushed across the kitchen to grab it.
The maid dropped silently, her nose busted and blood splattered across her features.
"I know where to find one," Rhyn said, his thoughts going to the Ancient healer that had been a prisoner in Sasha.s zoo in Hell across the hall from his own cell.
Far across the sea, he saw the black walls of Hell stretching from water to sky.
Kris wore a rare, charming smile as he sat across from Hannah, talking.
The night was cold and dark as he strode across the park to the edge of the castle.s grounds.
She met his gaze and held it, her pupils dilating and a faint flush spreading across her features.
Their brothers were already there, three of them sitting across the table from Sasha.
Sensing the level of tension in the room, Rhyn didn.t sit but leaned with his back against the wall, ready to launch across the table at whoever snapped first.
The iPad skittered across the floor.
With the creatures too distracted to notice her, Katie drew a breath and darted across the hall, shoving the door of the guest bedroom open.
She sailed across the bathroom and landed on Hannah.
Katie hauled Hannah to her feet and pulled her through the doorway, across the bedroom, and into the hall.
Irritation flashed across Kiki.s face, and Rhyn raised an eyebrow in warning.
It screeched across the floor a few inches.
"Rough night," he said, sitting on the bed across from her.
Jade stood before her, blood spattered across his otherwise clean clothes.
Kris caught him and shoved him back into the wall with his forearm across Rhyn.s throat.
Daniela.s little legs moved fast, and she was across the courtyard while Kris stared toward the room where Rhyn assumed his mate was.

Dwelling in her misery, she was surprised when his shadow fell across her.
A bug crawled across her leg, and she swiped it away.
She wandered through the room, trailing her fingers across the tables.
Realization played across her mind, echoed in a puzzled smile dancing across her face.
She stretched again before settling into an awkward stance across from him.
Kiera concentrated on her movements rather than the silent form across from her, intent on not looking like a fool in front of a master warrior.
Disbelief spread across her face.
Seriously, why did you feel the need to drag me across the galaxy?
Emotions of all kinds played across her face as the night progressed.
She stood and paced, and emotions flew across her face.
That she, a starving artist who'd been dragged across the universe because her best friend felt sorry for her, was the key to saving an entire race of people was unimaginable.
I almost died a million times over, and if I didn't know how to enable the shields on the escape pod, I would have burned up in the atmosphere, and if that didn't kill me, then hitting the planet-- He held up a hand, planting it across her mouth when she refused to stop.
"I will," Mansr said, sitting down across from her.
She turned to find him staring at her from across the dwelling.
"How did you learn to battle plan?" he asked, sitting across from her.

Edith looked up, rubbed a sleeve across her eyes to dry them, then brushed her hands down the white dress, smoothing the fabric against her legs.
Light snow had begun to fall—tiny crystals hardly visible in the light of the lamp across the street.
She had loosened her hair and her long tresses fell in a wave, over her shoulder and across her small breasts.
Edith was as nervous as the prior evening, glancing across the hall at her son, as if danger lurked in every corner of Bird Song.
The January sun continued in its brilliance and the rhythmic gliding across the crystal snow, though not exhausting, warmed the couple to the point where even their limited outer cover seemed excessive.
She then pushed the three smaller denomination coins across the coffee table toward Fred.
Across the hall were Effie and Claire, with Edith and her son in the rear bedroom.
The glossy color photo displayed a concentrated young woman, hand-climbing upside down, across a rock face that looked devoid of any hint of a hand hold.
Edith Shipton's jaw dropped and a panicked look spread across her white face.
Fred joined them from his room across the hall, a startled look on his face as he first noted the blonde hair.
