"Dean for Sheriff" signs were being wired on the doors, front and back.
What are the odds of her meeting this guy and being the daughter of his mine manager from twenty years earlier and a thousand miles away?
You're just afraid she'd toss you off the mountain for being so nosy—as well she should!
"What's your excuse for being here?" she asked.
Fred's back to being upset over this jury business.
"Now he has a hero for a deputy," Cynthia said, "in addition to being his private little squeeze.
Joseph has a gun and I don't like being used for target practice.
He never saw another human being.
They even jailed him a couple of times, just for being rowdy.
But back then, being pregnant with no husband didn't get you up the social ladder any too fast.
I forgot all about Firestone being in Ouray.
A poor example of being objective.
Cynthia said, simplicity being one of her many virtues.
Both Dawkins brothers were being offered excessive prices for the Lucky Pup land, from some supposedly unknown and secret purchaser.
He paced the Bird Song nest, glancing at his watch every thirty seconds and grumbling about time being money on his Internet auctions.
He insisted on being kept abreast of the news.
You said she knows Patsy from being a guard at Cañon City.
But there was the little problem of the pack of cigarettes Martha clearly described as being with the bones in the Lucky Pup Mine.
I think the best course of action in this instance is inaction—let this business play itself out, at least for the time being.
Cynthia's always accusing me of being too pushy.
While she acted blasé about his life and death, Dean wondered if she were being entirely truthful with herself.
"He was pretty smug about her being okay," Dean answered.
It was our assumption that the mine was being worked in the sixties.
We dated the bones in the sixties based on circumstances—when we thought the mine was being worked and when it was sealed.
I am involved—just being here.
He qualified as always being around.
He had no flashlight, and the fear he'd felt during his first trip into this deep and dank hole was compounded by the absence of being able to see.
He said he told a young lad about them in hopes the boy would 'find' them and eliminate Billy from being accused.
Billy admitted to being pretty drunk when he found them.
He thought it was a present from me, being his oldest friend.
Pleased with herself, she began to think being human wasn't going to be so hard.
She had to appear to be a normal human by being careful in everything she said and did.
As someone accustomed to being in control of her world, she needed a little more time before she was ready to face him.
The purpose of this apartment was to give her a place to practice being human.
In her mind, she saw only them being happy, finally, after an eternity of struggling to understand one another.
Being able to trust my own mate.
I thought being in Atlanta might help her.
Not many people thought differently of the first Ancient Immortal, who had led the Council with six of his sons for many years before being killed.
He barely accepted the idea of being mated to a woman who only looked like his ex.
"Bad. Those who support you are few and are being driven into the Everdark forest," Tymkyn replied.
He moved to sit on the trunk at the end of the bed, close enough to see the details of her features without being too tempted to take her in his arms.
What could be more important than being able to spend eternity with her?
It had been where Wynn, the father of all the Immortals on the Council, had lain for hundreds of years before being dragged out by Sasha, the son who betrayed them all to Darkyn.
You serious about demons being after me?
His scent and heat, the warmth of his magic, the heady sensations of being so close to him … She concentrated on placing her feet and not on his body.
They're pretty light on their feet for being so big.
Being human isn't easy.
She hated not being able to read his mind and see his thoughts, the way she had for the thousands of years they served the underworld together.
She turned to leave, suspecting she didn't have much time before Cora returned and raised the alarm about her being gone.
She trotted to the spot she'd identified from the tree as being where the currents appeared to originate from.
He wanted to think that being booted from his position was the least of his concerns.
I'm being straight with you.
"You're afraid of being hurt and not willing to take a chance," Rhyn assessed.
He chose to overlook Cora's disappointment at how close she'd been to home without being able to go back.
I can help you with being Death.
She really was going to get sick from the cold and being soaked.
Being with him, naked in bed, was the most natural, right and incredible experience.
It's like your soul is being torn in two.
She was plotting her return with a chain of events that ended with the human that bore her likeness being turned over to Darkyn.
As irritated as he was with Darkyn's words, he was also fascinated by the idea the demon lord who prided himself on preying on the vulnerabilities of others was capable of being offended.
He had the sense of being in a dream.
But she was human now, capable of being what she wasn't before.
He tried hard not to think about his soul being kicked around in the underworld.
Being here was probably a mistake.
He didn't know if it was because of Darkyn or because of being attacked by death dealers that defected.
He wanted to condemn the horrible things past-Death had done that resulted in an innocent human being thrown to the Dark One.
He purposely didn't let himself think about Darkyn being in her bed instead of him.
Being near her calmed him, despite his ambivalence.
Wynn was wrong about her being broken.
She felt guilty enough being there.
If anything, it made Darkyn look bad for not being able to defeat the disorganized rabble.
Gabriel said nothing, troubled by the idea of either girl being unable to help herself.
Whatever lay ahead, being with her would make it more pleasant.
He had given up being a salesman to fulfill a lifelong dream of being a veterinarian.
In truth, Alex felt the full responsibility of being a role model.
Being wrong won't stop her from taking Destiny if she's determined, though.
And yet, in spite of her comment about only being there for a short time, Lori came back several times to visit Destiny.
Destiny had finally reached the point that she would tolerate being held by Lori, but after a few minutes she was ready to get down or go to Alex, Carmen or Jonathan.
I always figured being a stay-at-home mom would be a plush job.
So far, she hadn't been there to witness any of her foals being born yet.
Alex says it's best to let them alone, but Casper is used to being around me.
Have I ever told you how much I enjoy being married to you?
Remember, being unconscious doesn't mean he can't hear what you say.
At first she had thought of him as being asleep, but in the last few days reality was beginning to sink in.
Carmen dreamed all night about being chased by a dog with red hair.
He had certainly shown patience for her recovery after Alexia died – even when she was being unreasonable.
This new method was like being intimate with a stranger.
Being Alex's sister, that seemed an unwise choice.
How can you be shy after being married so long?
To him it was innocence – a little like every time being the first time.
So much for being frugal.
It felt good being in them again.
All that was left was the physical act of being gone.
There is more to being a father than planting the seed.
Being happy has nothing to do with where you are.
I figured she was better off not being exposed to that situation.
It was a big jump for someone so committed to being morally correct.
I know I'll enjoy being with my family – no matter where we go.
Deidre, for what little this is worth, I apologize for not being good enough or smart enough or quick enough to prevent the inevitable.
Deidre stopped to admire bouquets being sold on a street corner.
Wynn didn't like being out of control, at the mercy of one he couldn't predict or manipulate.
I'd like to think there's greater meaning to both of us being reincarnated.
Gabe strode to the lectern and watched the words of the Present being written across the pages.
It was like being drunk, but on a person, not alcohol.
Instead of being cheered by the news, he was annoyed.
Gabe snorted, knowing his assassins were unaccustomed to being challenged by anyone.
It was deeper, beyond the physical joining, the sense of being one.
The sense of being protected, safe, floated through her.
Deidre had the sense of being late to a conversation.
His pointed teeth rested on his lower lip, his dark eyes displaying the intelligence of a being that existed from the time-before-time.
He'd never thought of being locked out of the underworld as an advantage, but the soul Darkyn wanted wasn't likely one of those in the lakes on the mortal world.
You remember being born here and everything?
I don't remember being born, but I mean, I grew up in Indiana and moved to Atlanta for college and stayed after I graduated.
"Okay. I appreciate how straight forward you're being," Deidre said.
The sense of being overwhelmed made Deidre grip the coffee mug hard.
Tell me what happened that made you walk out on being a doctor.
Being alone meant she started thinking again, something she didn't want to do.
Who's to say there aren't genetic variations that lend people to being different? he asked, shrugging.
"You look pretty good for being dead-dead," Gabe replied.
Very honorable of you to give her a choice of being with you after how she treated you all those years.
Furious at the idea, Gabe began to wonder how the reincarnated Deidre made it this far without being slaughtered by one of her many enemies.
The only one who seemed willing to talk to her before being shushed by Daniela was Rhyn.
Normal kids didn't ask about the underworld or being human.
Being Immortal, that meant pretty much forever.
It made more sense than Wynn being hit by Gabe.
She couldn't remember seeing his chiseled features in full light without being drunk or terrified.
She stopped a dozen meters before the edge of the forest, wondering if there was any sort of hazard in being so close to whatever it was causing the lake to be green in the first place.
He was loyal, if concerned about being trapped on the mortal plane.
