I asked him if he ever wished to write his thoughts.
Prince Vasili knew this, and having once realized that if he asked on behalf of all who begged of him, he would soon be unable to ask for himself, he became chary of using his influence.
Sarah asked the question with genuine interest.
Still, it was something she should have asked when he first offered her the job.
I asked him once if he was not sometimes tired at night, after working all day; and he answered, with a sincere and serious look, "Gorrappit, I never was tired in my life."
Again I asked my teacher, "Is this not love?"
"What will happen otherwise?" asked the Wizard.
At first, when my teacher told me about a new thing I asked very few questions.
I have asked Golitsyn and he has refused.
Normally he would have asked if she was ready to go to bed, or even if she needed help.
"Are you hungry?" asked the woman's voice.
"Did you what?" he asked, running fingers through his hair to straighten it.
Alex asked with a grin.
"What is that word?" asked the king.
"What for?" asked the girl.
It is wisdom that King Solomon asked God for, not intelligence.
Felipa asked in surprise.
"How long do you live, after you are picked?" asked Dorothy.
"What harm can the Gurgles do?" asked Dorothy.
"What shall we do now?" asked Dorothy, anxiously.
"What for?" asked Alpatych.
"There's more, isn't there," Carmen asked, watching Felipa's face.
Jonathan asked Alex excitedly as they joined Carmen and Felipa.
It is a safe bet that no one has ever asked that question before, and yet this system is designed to answer it.
"What is the matter here?" asked the first lawyer, whose name was Speed.
Don't you feel overwhelmed by it? she asked Alex.
"Where do you come from, then?" asked the woman, in a curious tone.
At that moment Anna Pavlovna came up and, looking severely at Pierre, asked the Italian how he stood Russian climate.
"But why destroy my friends?" asked the little Wizard.
Jonathan asked, his eyes large.
"Does the dama-fruit grow on a low bush, and look something like a peach?" asked the Wizard.
"Where did you grow?" asked the Wizard.
I was brought before a court of investigation composed of the teachers and officers of the Institution, and Miss Sullivan was asked to leave me.
They were so synchronized and fluid that Carmen asked Alex if they danced often.
"Is this a fairy country?" asked the boy.
"Did he touch you?" he asked sharply.
"Where is Lincoln?" asked one.
"It could be a girl and a boy?" she asked hopefully.
The day before they were scheduled to leave, Alex came home from work and asked to see the tickets.
"You look for Alex?" she asked, continuing before Carmen could respond.
All were asked the same question.
"Where do you work?" she asked, trying not to sound overly interested.
"Who built these lovely bridges?" asked the little girl.
"Which would you rather have" asked the caliph, "three hundred pieces of gold, or three wise sayings from my lips?"
"Are you afraid of getting fired?" she asked with a grin.
She could have asked, but that might tip her hand.
Some have asked what I got to eat; if I did not feel lonesome; if I was not afraid; and the like.
He asked for a samovar and for hay for his horses, and when he had had his tea he went to bed.
Katie asked her about the progress on the horse ranch.
"You can't find a sitter closer to your home?" she asked skeptically.
"What do you do?" asked the Sorcerer.
"But where are the people?" asked Dorothy.
Then he called his wisest men together and asked them, "Is it really true that the first people in the world were Egyptians?"
I read one or two shallow books of travel in the intervals of my work, till that employment made me ashamed of myself, and I asked where it was then that I lived.
"And what do you think of this latest comedy, the coronation at Milan?" asked Anna Pavlovna, "and of the comedy of the people of Genoa and Lucca laying their petitions before Monsieur Buonaparte, and Monsieur Buonaparte sitting on a throne and granting the petitions of the nations?
Will you stay here if the enemy occupies the place? asked Prince Andrew.
"Do you eat?" asked the boy.
"Who is this?" asked the Wizard, curiously.
Señor Medena asked Carmen and Alex to come to his office with him.
Alex had asked one of the men go into town and rent a car for them.
"Alex?" she asked tentatively.
"May I eat one of them?" asked the kitten, in a pleading voice.
I am frequently asked how I overcome the peculiar conditions under which I work in college.
But when she asked Giddon to give Connie his phone number, he looked suspiciously from one of them to the other.
Isn't it funny? asked the kitten.
"How does it taste?" asked the Wizard.
One of his brothers asked to see the whistle.
In any event, King Croesus had it in his mind to wage war against the Persians, so he asked the oracle: "Should I attack the Persians?"
I asked, and the next minute I recognized the odour of the mimosa blossoms.
Some one asked me if I had read it in a book.
Alpatych, without answering or looking at his host, sorted his packages and asked how much he owed.
"And Alpatych is being sent to Smolensk?" asked Princess Mary.
"Can I hold her?" she asked Alex.
"Tell us, dear, what do the creatures look like?" she asked, addressing her pet.
"Is not the Real Horse a beautiful animal?" asked the Sawhorse admiringly.
Señor Medena asked, his voice crisp.
"Who?" he asked, his expression quizzical.
Later that evening in their room Carmen asked him about the exchange.
The problem is, you neither asked nor listened.
When I told her about Destiny, she asked if she could come up and help.
You asked me to drive you home, don't you remember?
Lisa asked, as she gazed at the beautiful buckskin gelding.
"Looking for flowers again?" he asked dryly.
"Where's my milk?" asked the kitten, looking up into Dorothy's face.
"Will there be any more Rains?" asked the man with the star.
"What do you mean by that?" asked the little Wizard, greatly puzzled.
"What are you going to do with us?" asked Zeb.
"Where are they?" asked Dorothy, in astonishment.
Will you buy it, my dear? he asked, addressing Dorothy.
"But why fight at all, in that case?" asked the girl.
"What made them fly away?" asked Dorothy.
I remember the morning that I first asked the meaning of the word, "love."
I smelt the violets in her hand and asked, half in words, half in signs, a question which meant, "Is love the sweetness of flowers?"
I asked, pointing in the direction from which the heat came.
Mrs. C. came to the door and asked me to view it from the inside.
The same evening that the prince gave his instructions to Alpatych, Dessalles, having asked to see Princess Mary, told her that, as the prince was not very well and was taking no steps to secure his safety, though from Prince Andrew's letter it was evident that to remain at Bald Hills might be dangerous, he respectfully advised her to send a letter by Alpatych to the Provincial Governor at Smolensk, asking him to let her know the state of affairs and the extent of the danger to which Bald Hills was exposed.
As he went along he looked with pleasure at the year's splendid crop of corn, scrutinized the strips of ryefield which here and there were already being reaped, made his calculations as to the sowing and the harvest, and asked himself whether he had not forgotten any of the prince's orders.
"Why are they leaving the town?" asked Alpatych.
The mistress rocked and hushed her baby and when anyone came into the cellar asked in a pathetic whisper what had become of her husband who had remained in the street.
She asked him where he had been.
Alex asked sharply, his brows drawing down.
Carmen asked in surprise.
Jonathan rarely asked for anything and the idea of having someone in the house playing music was appealing.
"How did they happen to be so little?" asked Dorothy.
"Can he fight?" asked the man's voice.
"What are Gargoyles?" asked Zeb.
Couldn't you, Zeb? asked the little girl.
"Are we really quite lost, your excellency?" he asked again.
"What does all this mean, anyhow?" asked the horse, jumping to escape a thorn.
In his first letter which came soon after he had left home, Prince Andrew had dutifully asked his father's forgiveness for what he had allowed himself to say and begged to be restored to his favor.
"How can we do that?" asked the girl.
"Are they good seats?" she asked.
"What?" she asked, glancing around to see what she'd absentmindedly done this time.
He asked her to go back to Houston with him, enticing her with rides on the beach - and love all night.
Is it too far to go to Austin? she asked.
"I thought he was going to beat you to me again," "Who?" he asked again.
"Son, you will look at the new mares?" he asked.
"What are you doing," he finally asked.
"Where's the thermometer?" he asked, his focus still on Destiny.
Once she asked for daddy, but went back to sleep when Carmen told her he was asleep.
Later she remembered that Alex had asked her to call him if there was any change.
"Have you had any sleep?" he asked.
Carmen asked, and then made a face.
"Is he alright?" she asked.
"How is Destiny?" he asked.
He asked, and then coughed.
"The twins?" she finally asked.
"When are you leaving?" she asked.
"Is it something you want to be involved in?" she asked.
"Is that what this is all about?" he asked.
Even Katie noticed the change in him and asked Carmen about the cause.
"Where is he now?" she asked.
"What's his name?" she asked.
"Isn't it early for all of that?" she asked.
He asked, lifting the creamer.
It was something she had been told often, but never expected to be asked.
Lisa asked as she turned to look at Sarah.
"Better?" he asked, his voice gentle and warm.
I wondered why you asked me to look for it.
"Are you sure you liked it?" he asked.
I asked a few questions and was quickly told to mind my own business.
On the other hand, she hadn't asked Len to look into Yancey's past.
As she brushed by him on her way to her room to dress, she asked over her shoulder.
Keeping her voice conversational, she asked him without looking up.
Since you asked, I'm getting it today.
Fine, but that's not what I asked.
He merely asked if she was alright.
I asked Connie if you could...
Yet Howard said he hired Allen because she asked him to investigate Yancey.
Allen had come to the house before she asked Howard to check on Yancey.
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.
"What are you talking about?" he asked in a perplexed tone.
Her date with Michael had been uneventful and he hadn't asked her out since.
"Tonight?" she asked dryly.
Was he regretting that he had asked her to marry him?
If she had come up with Brandon when he asked, she would have been there when Mr. Marsh suffered the heart attack.
"But what if they're wrong?" his mother asked.
But he asked me to leave.
You haven't asked me what a woman is doing out here driving a wagon.
"Are you cold?" he asked.
Forget I asked... please.
Your father asked me to look for you while I was out this way, and bring you home if I could.
I just asked her to marry me.
She asked over her shoulder.
Cassie asked, trying to make her voice sound friendly.
"So you can collect your money?" she asked sourly.
Did you see that? she asked breathlessly.
He was no more expressive around Mary than anyone else, but he often asked her opinion on things.
And so you asked me?
No matter how often she asked herself the question, the answer remained elusive.
He couldn't have asked for a better housekeeper, but the atmosphere between them had become strained.
It was a risky thing, lying down on the couch with a man, but this was Cade - half asleep and asking her to stay - Cade, who never asked for anything.
Betsy asked, probably visualizing Abe Lincoln's birth place, with outside toilet and stream-carried water.
"Where do they live?" she asked as we rolled up and down low hills by bucolic pastures.
Howie asked, adding, "Did I sleep with you?"
"Do you remember this, or do I have to teach you?" she asked.
"Did you two get a good night's sleep," Martha asked as she poured me a cup.
Quinn asked with a frown.
Martha asked as she passed around butter and syrup.
Betsy asked, sounding disappointed.
"Wouldn't you want the answers to those questions?" she asked all of us.
You can be the mediator, he asked.
There was murmured sound downstairs and Betsy asked from outside the door if there was a problem.
I remembered the things you asked me to look for.
I asked my mother about visiting the country or a farm and she insisted I'd never travelled anywhere but here in New Hampshire until I left for the seminary.
We asked about buildings; there were none, only corn in the four fields separated by the cross roads.
He nodded his head and asked how long he slept.
Then she asked hesitantly, "Do you want to try it again after he cleans up?"
"What did you think of Howie?" she asked.
I remembered a question he'd asked.
Once on our stools and served, I asked him his plans if he did in fact recognize the town of his dream.
Howie asked about my job and confessed he was spending far too much time doing nothing.
I asked, breaking the reverential silence.
"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.
We asked if there was anyone around who might still be living who would remember that far back.
"How about Croft's Feed," I asked, remembering another name.
Over pie and coffee that followed a meat loaf dinner, Betsy asked the question on all our minds.
Quinn asked the question over oatmeal and raisin toast on Saturday morning.
When I rose and asked if we were ready to begin another session, he was eager to join us on our trek to the basement.
I never asked you to.
Quinn asked, his face masked in shock.
Betsy asked, trying to ease the tension.
Do you think I should? he asked in a quaking voice.
When I'd stopped for a breath, the woman asked where I was when I witnessed it and why I'd waited so long to call.
"And many more nightmares," Quinn asked.
I have this gift I never asked for but it's like I have an obligation to utilize it.
I guess I looked funny, so he asked me outright, if we'd been lovers.
Then Howie asked if we'd try to run a session this weekend, long distance, by phone.
"How much money do you have, Howie?" asked Martha, the most outspoken of our group.
"Georgia, not New York?" he asked.
He asked if there were others and I told him about two.
I asked after a few deep breaths.
I asked the others after I'd explained Brennan's conversation.
"Mr. Brennan asked me call you," I said by way of introduction.
Then he asked, "Are you ever wrong?"
I asked, more to take his mind off mayhem than to elicit information.
Quinn asked, arresting everyone's attention.
"What do you mean?" his wife asked.
"And what does your mind have to say?" my wife asked.
I mentioned finding the old name of Willard Humphries and asked if Brennan could check if he'd been released.
Brennan asked when there was a break in our conversation.
When asked why he now went public with his so-called gift, he replied he was establishing a business to locate missing children.
"You guys have always been right on money, haven't you?" he asked.
Betsy asked after once more, he'd left early.
I asked, immediately realizing the stupidity of the question.
"Who are Rita and Tamara?" he asked, thereby identifying his mystery amour.
I asked Yes, or a victim's advocacy group.
I asked Daniel Brennan if there was any progress in the Bryce case.
He was simply helping out his sibling and never asked for details.
I asked as I stroked my knife against her cheek.
He obviously knew he owed us an explanation but I sensed he would wait us out until someone asked.
I asked her, as if it was business as usual.
"How do you know it was the same person who killed the others who killed that poor woman in Omaha?" she asked.
She agreed to do so but said she was ninety percent convinced already and asked me to continue.
Martha asked if she'd like to hold the baby, thrilling Molly further.
She politely asked her mother for permission, which was granted.
She kept looking toward Martha until Martha asked if something was wrong.
"May I babysit for Clair sometime after I move up to Keene?" she asked, then turned to Betsy and added, "And maybe take Bumpus for walks?"
Martha had asked to come in late as baby Clair had a bad night.
"Tell me why you called?" he asked instead of answering.
I told him we were trying to trace the electric bike by its model but asked about checking hospitals.
"What should I do?" he asked.
Strange though, when I asked if gunshots were common, they answered yes, but it was a quiet weekend; none had been reported for several days.
I asked her if she perceived any hint of threat.
Are there any more tidbits you can slip my way? she asked.
"In Idaho?" she asked, like a hen pecking for scraps.
I didn't know the names of anyone at organization so I asked for the person in charge of investigations.
We've been asked a number of times, by the press and everyone else if we're an adjunct to the tipster person.
He always asked Betsy what cases he was missing by his absence.
