The dairy door swung open with a blast of cold air and Alex paused in the doorway.
Carmen lunged at him and he leaped straight into the air, dropping the chicken.
As she straightened, his snowball was already in the air.
She turned and ran, her laughter muffled in the waterlogged air.
Her voice was as crisp as the morning air and twice as sharp.
She pushed away from him and drug in deeply of the cold night air.
The throaty bark filled the air again and she rolled out of bed into the cold morning.
The air funneling up from the snow-covered hollows was frigid and the little doeling was dying of hypothermia.
Wild phlox filled the air with a heavenly scent that rivaled lilacs.
She pushed away from him, gasping for air.
She stepped back, trying to take the electricity out of the air with a little humor.
Katie glanced up, the needle pausing in mid air.
The dawn brought cool air and dense fog.
She hit the ground like a sack of grain and scrambled away from him, gasping for air and rubbing her neck.
He jerked a rifle from its scabbard and swung it around with one arm, firing it into the air.
She brought her elbow around into his ribs and the air escaped his lungs in a startled groan of protest.
The air was charged by the activated electromagnetic field surrounding the compound.
She stared at a helicopter as it lifted nimbly into the air, imagining Mr. Tim and other politicians aboard it.
She breathed the chilled air to clear her thoughts.
The air was tinged with the scent of burning wood and melted metals, sulfur, and the facility's damp mustiness.
Elise, I need a team to go down and test the air.
With his commanding air, he was accustomed to being in charge.
The fed building smoldered before him, the scent of metal and burning plastic thick in the air.
He was suspended in the air by the straps of his harness.
The sun sat low on the horizon, and the morning air was still and filled with the scent of fire and death.
He breathed deeply, not realizing how musty the underground world was until he breathed fresh air.
The metal lair was much cooler than the air above ground, and water stained the walls on one side of the tunnel.
Mike took them right, and the air grew even cooler.
"Why did you bring me here?" he asked the air around him.
He disappeared again, and her hand met air. Katie muttered a few curses and looked around.
He was like a statue, only she felt the warmth of his body and the tingle of magic in the air.
Frowning, Rhyn pulled a dagger from the wall and tucked it into his belt. He'd never tried tracking anyone through the Immortal underworld before; if Gabriel didn't want to be found, Rhyn wasn't going to find him in the death-dealer's backyard. Sweat dripped down his face in the still air of the cottage.
Rhyn left the cell block to Toby's protests and walked with Gabe through the antechamber and into the hallway on the other side. Gabe's gaze was dark, his air brooding. Rhyn opened a portal, and they crossed through to Gabe's cabin in the underworld.
Death's words made the air in the room feel heavy. Kris sat down at the table.
"Angel memories say …" He turned to see Ully several meters away, suspended in the air and battling branches that tried to grab his arms.
He flew through the air, drawing the attention of nearby demons in midflight. He saw them shift directions and dart towards him just before he dipped beneath the jungle canopy again.
Kris looked up in time to see Kiki crash through the canopy and plummet towards the ground. Kris gasped and sprung forward. A streak of black crossed his vision as a flying demon snatched Kiki out of the air.
Instinct and fury blinded him. He felt the dagger sink into flesh and struck again, only to find himself flying backwards through the air. Rhyn shouted something at him, but Kris couldn't hear him, not with the memory of both Lilith and Hannah dying.
Rhyn stopped and knelt, placing his hands to the ground. Kris crossed his arms. A blast of energized air swept over him. Rhyn sat back.
Rhyn rose and flipped the dagger he held in the air, catching it effortlessly.
Why don't you come up for air sometime?
The man took a deep breath of the hot and salty night air and firmly closed the door marked Room 22.
"It's a skip case," DeLeo said with a know-it-all air that defied anyone to doubt him.
The air was hot and heavy but the small backyard setting remained pleasant.
"The wife wants you to give her a call," Hunter said, as he started up the automobile and turned on that miraculous invention, the air conditioner.
Wednesday morning dawned with air so crisp Dean was awake before the alarm, awake to a knock down gorgeous day, "one of the ten best" prattled a cheery voice on the kitchen table radio.
"Yellow 42," he yelled again, charging into the room, feigning a hand-off and tossing his arms in the air.
There was no humidity, an ideal temperature and enough of a breeze to perfume the air with the zillion flowers recently wakened after a tough winter or perhaps just planted to welcome the approaching summer season.
They stepped outside for a breath of fresh air to wait.
All this and air so fresh each breath was a new exhilaration.
The two pedaled together most of the afternoon, enjoying the pine-scented air, the cool breeze that hugged the base of the mountains and the yellow sunshine of a perfect spring day.
They were both quiet for a few moments, breathing in the cool night air before Dean spoke.
He could smell her sweetness in the night air and her breath was only inches from him.
His digital speedometer read 54 miles an hour, faster than he had ever ridden in his life, and his eyes watered from the rush of cold air.
When the road straightened once more, he heard a noise behind him and a dozen daredevils in the tuck position sped on by him with a wave and a rush of air.
He fell in behind them, taking advantage of the quieter air in their wake and kept pace with them.
The broad arches allowed fresh air and the clear fiberglass roof let the sunshine in while keeping the rain out.
The last thing she wanted to do was renew their argument of the night before, but they needed to clear the air about something.
She said in a rush of air.
She threw her hands in the air.
Katie threw her hands in the air and rolled her eyes.
With the air cleared, he dropped the subject and moved on to more pleasant conversation.
Down the hill, across the creek and across the field to the buffalo shed? the crisp air traced their progress with a wisp of steam.
The rabbit leaped into the air, and bolted across the field, his white tail visible above the tall grass with each bound.
Then she joined the fun, leaping and lashing her feet into the air as she twisted her belly toward the sun.
The room smelled of stale air and mold.
His face split into a large smile, and he waved the sword in the air.
Fire still raged at one end of the orchard, filling the air above the trees with black smoke.
He'd lost the air of indecision and regret, trading it for acceptance and resolve.
Purple magic seized him, bound him, and lifted him into the air.
The magic in the air crackled around them even from the distance.
The Black God's power swelled, stifling the air around them.
When Jenn saw Darian drop from the air she launched forward.
She threw herself into the snow, watching the lightning slice the air where she'd been.
The cold, still air sank into her clothing and skin.
Darian flipped a knife in the air then sat down on a chair in the corner.
The tattooed immortal with cocoa skin sat forward, his magic vibrating in the air around him.
I've Seen some things … and there are some things so up in the air right now, I can't figure out what it means.
The air was clear and dry, the sand dotted with small shrubs.
The two spoke, and he felt Jenn's magic in the air as she exerted what control she could over Jonny.
The colors were more intense, brighter, the air filled with the perfume of flowers.
The ashes had long since stopped burning, and the air was still filled with magic.
His was a body that had been honed until all that stood between muscle and air was a thin coat of skin.
"I freely admit it, ikir," she whispered with an air of formality.
Now you'll tell me it's illegal for her to breathe the air down there.
"It wasn't air she stole," the Other replied.
The air around her felt thicker than usual.
The air around her seized her and shoved her to her knees.
Her scent still lingered in the air, and he could almost feel her hands on his body again, caressing him in a way that turned him from a god in control of himself into a fawning teenager.
His agitated air was filled with magic.
His magic filled the air around him, flinging the living room furniture against windows and walls in a fit of fury.
She felt the air around him shift, darken.
But without her magic ability to cover her emotions, the air around her sizzled.
The air between them was electric, her breathing uneven.
Where Sofi's magic was cold, Bianca's was cool, and the air around her shimmered as if with sunlight.
She rose from her corner and strode to Jenn, the air around her filled with glitter.
The air trembled with magic.
His magic filled the air, shoving between Bianca and Xander and pushing her away.
She slung her head back, filling her lungs with air.
The Other raised a hand, and Jenn dived to the ground as lightning ripped through the air towards her.
White lightning snaked through the air.
The air between them was as calm and peaceful as it was raging around them.
The air grew more charged, humming with magic from god and obelisk.
The hum in the air became a whine almost too loud to bear.
Fire and ice ripped through her, sucking the air from her lungs.
Gasping for air, she rolled onto her back.
Jonny's dark eyes had taken on a new spark of intelligence, his air settled where it had been agitated before.
Darian took it, and they Traveled to a locker cold enough for his expelled breath to hang in the air.
Already, he felt her magic in the air as she channeled it into her mate.
A few minutes later, Dusty sat up suddenly, sucking in air and gazing around him wildly.
The ocean air was fragrant and heavy, and moonlight pierced the forest canopy in patches.
The man's air cooled even further, and the men in the chamber tensed.
The air of the bathing chamber was rendered moist and heavy by the awaiting bath.
The air of the chamber stilled and grew heavy, as if it meant to suffocate him.
The air was hot and heavy and promised to become unbearable quickly.
The cool forest shade was soon defeated by the lack of air movement.
She was tense again, her air troubled.
The stones were dark, the air musty, the ceiling low.
He said nothing, but she sensed his troubled air.
The night air was crisp and cool and laden by the scents of the ocean.
She breathed deeply of the night air, embarrassed to feel the tears on her face.
The sounds and scents of battle were thick in the air, from clanging of metal to cries of the injured to the smell of heated bodies.
The darkness smelled damp; the air was still and silent.
Nothing but air greeted her outstretched hands.
She admired his newfound air of command but couldn't help resenting him for having a second chance she'd never get.
He rested his forehead against hers, and they breathed the same air.
He breathed deeply of the early summer air and closed his eyes, enjoying the smell of the horse and sound of creaking leather.
Carmen changed filters and turned on the air conditioner for the summer.
Katie sighed and threw her hands in the air as she turned away.
Beyond them mountain ranges faded into shades of blue in the humid air.
Alex glanced at Carmen and then focused on Rob, his voice calm as the air before a tornado.
It was nice to be near Alex with the air cleared of secrets.
She needed him more than she needed air to breath.
With the air cleared of all the secrets, and both of them making a concentrated effort to get along, even the children appeared to be happier.
Even the smoggy Los Angeles air outside had to be better than the stale air in the office.
She froze for a second with the whip in the air.
