All Len wants out of me is information about Allen, and Howard couldn't care less where I am.

But they had been inconvenienced enough with all her problems.
All her skills were occupied simply keeping all four wheels on the ground.
She desperately fought the steering wheel for control, but the car weaved all over the road.

It had been in all the local papers, but she wasn't sure she could talk about it without getting emotional.

She encircled his neck with one arm, noting that his breathing didn't seem at all labored as he carried her across the creek.

At one point he splashed through a mud puddle, throwing mud and water all over her.
I'll be glad to pay you for all you've done.

Surely you have time off as well, otherwise, how would you have time to come all the way out here.
All of which was beside the point.
In fact, I think my big mouth made him all the more determined.
In any case, Yancey didn't seem to be all that determined to avoid a relationship.
So he hadn't been in Tammy's room all this time.
But people are out here all the time with ATV's, aren't they?
He knew all the right buttons to push.
Yet as the world began to open beyond her little circle, she realized that he had been open about his interest all along.
But Len didn't know all the facts, and that wasn't fair.
All else aside, would she want to marry a man like Yancey – so moody and secretive?
Why not dispense with all the formalities?
All this talk about bears was frightening her.
All my mail goes to a post office box.
Since they were all dressed up, she assumed they were going to church together.

You'll get ticks and chiggers all over you.
In spite of all the evidence, Yancey still came out as a responsible adult.
Do you tell all your boyfriends you love them?
His voice was harsh, but his expression was all hurt.
Well, it doesn't look like you're all that scared of me right now.
All the while, the shadow was getting closer.
Why don't we all eat out on the patio?
All the same, she left early.
After all, he was the one who insisted that his mother was her boss.
Instead, she collected a few small photos and arranged them all in one frame.
All I want is information.
All I know is that he's temperamental, and you'd better stay away from him.
She had provided all the information he needed through Connie.
So he thought it was all about Howard and a love interest.
Thank you for driving all that way to make sure I was safe.
Let him explain all of it to his mother.
It's all there, and thanks for the business.
Worst of all was the façade of romantic interest.
But if he saw her swollen eyes he'd be asking all kinds of questions.
Right now all he wanted out of her was absence.
It was all overwhelming.
She used the same suit cases when she came and she had the same clothes, but it didn't look like there was enough room to put it all in.
Could she have been wrong about it all?
Is that what this is all about?
Worst of all, she had probably ruined any chance she had with him.
Yeah, he wanted me to get rid of you, all right.
Covered all the bases, did you?
He motioned to the others to follow and they all went down the path to the building.
How did you unravel all that?
I'm all right now.
I just got up too fast, that's all.
That's why you're so tired all the time.
I heard all that.
He's all caught up with his computers.
What does he want with all that equipment?
It's a good thing we're all so darn sweet.
All right, I'll throw a few things together and stow them in your car before I leave.
At the moment, she wasn't sure whether she found all his concern touching or insulting.
After all, he wasn't a guard dog.
Anyway, with all the money in his family and the good looks as well, he couldn't hold a candle to Brandon in the charm department.
Why Michael wasn't following her like all the other guys was beyond Adrienne's comprehension.
Oh, it's all right.
The idea that Brandon felt relieved wasn't all that flattering - or comforting, for that matter.
I've heard it all.
All this was doing neither of them any good.
All the same, Brandon introduced them as his parents - and Adrienne as a friend he had met in Tulsa.
Fried chicken, gravy, biscuits - did they eat like this all the time?
We're all holding down jobs and going to school, Dad.
I thought about it, but now that we're here, it all seems kind of stupid.
Come to think of it, he hadn't been out at all since they returned from his parent's house.
In addition, all her planning and tenacity were paying off.
Since they all lived in the same apartment complex, and the evening was early, Adrienne invited them to her apartment for a cup of coffee.
They were all giggling over coffee when Brandon walked in.
We were looking all over the place for you.
The smoke was bothering me and I didn't want to ruin the party for all of you, so I simply walked home.
We were all together.
There's no reason to get all worked up.
They didn't know what to think - you coming in here all huffy and chewing me out.
He led the way to the door, all the while muttering something under his breath about something being stupid.
After all, her plans were going so well.
All her plans were about to blow up – all this because she had allowed herself to be drawn into a relationship.
What had she been thinking of all this time?
Obviously, she hadn't been doing much thinking at all.
Brandon, we all agreed on those rules.
Now both of you get in here before we make a scene that gets us all thrown out.
All our cuddling was done outside those doors.
Now all I want to know, is when are you getting married?
Could all this be happening to her?
When they all set down to supper, Brandon was still brooding.
Watching the two of them, it was all she could do to control her own tears... especially knowing that this was at least partly her fault.
They all glanced up expectantly as the doctor strode toward them and quietly gave them the bad news.
It was all too logical.
They all attended the funeral on Wednesday, and Brandon had little to say to any of them.
You've planned this all your life.
All this time he had to remain strong for his mother.
Timing was with her and she was able to take all the state exams shortly after graduating.
Don't start acting like it was all my idea.
The only problem is that it all doesn't fit into your preconceived plans.
All your plans worked out.
After all, I wasn't in them to begin with.
All she had to do was set her mind to it.
They all didn't understand that she couldn't simply run out and get a job like she had in Tulsa.
All that aside, Brandon didn't want her back.
Why did she need to prove to anyone, least of all herself, that she was right in breaking off the relationship?
She wasn't going to let them all make her feel guilty.
Why go through all that pain again, when she had almost succeeded in putting him in the past - almost, but not quite.
All the same, she finally sent her application for the job.
All the same, Saturday found her at a restaurant in Bartlesville, where she was supposed to meet her prospective employer.
The chances were, he rarely got into town at all.
Then they spend all their time at parties instead of studying.
Brandon retired to a table nearby and it was all Adrienne could do to keep her mind on the interview.
I'm trying to say that it's all right to switch boats if that's what you really want.
A woman your age ought to be looking for a husband – or already married, not chasing all over creation in pants, trying to act like a man.
Not surprising, since they made all the laws.
Anyway, my point was that women are expected to do all the things I'm doing on this job.
Of all things, why did he have to bring that up?
If we all treated you like one of the guys, wouldn't you be a little disappointed?
When all the wagons were ready, she snapped the whip over the back of the mules.
Each day they changed positions in line so that no one ate the dust from all the wagons every day.
All that churning of sand and dust disguised their trail to some degree, but nothing could hide the trail of five heavy wagons.
He probably thought she was all googly-eyed over him.
Not all men were unfaithful lechers.
The rest of the teamsters joined them and they all waited in silence as the horses approached and drew to an organized halt.
All eyes were on him, but he appeared not to notice.
All I want is a chance to speak my piece.
If that's all they give you, count yourself lucky.
We all pull our own weight around here.
You do all the work we do, and then cook.
Thanks, but I did all this by myself until you came along.
She could wear men's clothes and crack that whip all she wanted, but she was still a woman at heart - and he knew it.
All of which was neither here nor there.
Why should she care – and what did he have to gain by all this attention?
I didn't mean that at all.
All the money in the world couldn't have saved her.
It must be fun to be able to ride all around freely while we're stuck in our wagons.
Let them all think what they wanted.
For some reason, she found it all amusing.
Why would I want to see more of the same thing I view from this wagon seat all day?
If they all hadn't been so close, she would have thought he didn't hear the question.
Now that they were all together, it would be a good time to tell them.
Obviously they all thought she was leaving with Bordeaux.
It might be the last trip for all of us.
It gets lonely out there all by myself.
It was all a ploy to get the ranch, and Bordeaux was right in the middle.
All he wanted was the ranch.
You would know all about lying.
She packed all the dishes and stashed them in the back of one of the wagons.
All this work is for nothing.
After all he had done, he dared talk to her as if she were a child.
When they were all together he addressed them soberly.
