The demon's wiry frame was armed, his black eyes steady and quiet power restrained.

The black dress she wore fit her like a second skin, outlining every curve, dip and nook of her body.
After a moment, a form emerged from the black portal.
As she stepped through, so did Darkyn's mate, from a black portal to her left.

The off-the-shoulder style with its white lace made the most of her newly acquired tan, and the shiny black belt and full skirt made her waist look small.
I remembered how you acted when you saw me in the black underwear.
Yeah, that was probably said by someone who didn't have a big sow black bear after them.
The man standing in the weedy area of the lot was tall and thick, dressed in a trench coat, black clothing and heavy boots.
The eyes that once turned from black to white to every color in between were now blue-green in color, and her face held a human flush enhanced by his lovemaking.
His eyes were white then black then changed from every color in between, his brown hair of medium length and wavy, ruffled by the sea breeze.
They carried weapons, too, and their eyes were pure black, their teeth pointed like Jared's.
The flutter of a black trench coat blended with the dark sky as Gabriel twisted them in midair, so he'd hit back first, with her protected in his arms.

Tall and lean, with eyes as black as Gabriel's, the man who stood too close for her comfort wore normal enough clothing, aside from the knives strapped to his thighs.
His eye was black, one of his cheekbones yellow.
As she watched, the black eye and bruised cheek healed themselves.
Dressed in black, he was an imposing figure, even in the cavernous room.
Dressed all in black with weapons strapped in places identical to where Gabriel wore his, the tall man was lean with cold eyes.
The muscular frame, black gaze, dark clothes all looked the same.
She stood on a covered landing of a fortress made of black stones overlooking a parched desert beneath dual suns too faded to provide anything other than indirect light.
It was dim inside the stronghold, and the first torch they crossed that burned with black flames mesmerized her long enough for her to lose sight of Darkyn around a corner.
He led her past closed doors and through hallways carved out of black stone.
One opened it for him, and she trailed him into a large bedchamber complete with a hearth burning black flames.
It was muted black, made out of material smoother than silk that draped over her arm like a second skin.
She changed out of her familiar clothing into the dress that matched the black world around her.
Deidre opened her eyes and blinked rapidly, realizing the black she tried to clear from her sight was the black ceiling of the operating room.
The walls, however, were as black as the ceiling.
She wore the black dress still.
The only difference was her hair and the eyes that turned from white to black to every color in between.
She sat in a chair by the black hearth.
It gave off heat despite the black flames.
She was beautiful, a woman of sunshine, smiles, and eyes that changed from white to black and every color in between.

Katie instinctively believed her and twisted, staring with Toby at the man in black who watched them drive away.
She felt the cold, black glare and fought the urge to run back inside the clinic.
He was in black, unaffected by the cold or the light settling over him, outlining him like glitter on black construction paper.
Toby had drawn him on black construction paper with silver glitter outlining the shape of a man.
Her mind cleared, and she wiped her eyes at the massive form in black before her.
He was close to seven feet tall, with chiseled features and eyes as black as eternity.
His eyes glowed darker than night, two black holes in his otherwise indistinguishable 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 shook the hand of his brother and friend, whose black skin clashed with his.
It was three months' salary, though Hannah had added it to the black AmEx her fiancé paid in full every month without a second thought.
Andre's apartment was black and fiery.

He made his way through the castle with the black stones as he had many times during his long stay.

Far across the sea, he saw the black walls of Hell stretching from water to sky.
He gazed into the black flames of the fire in the hearth.
He trotted down a set of black lacquered stairs, an iPad tucked under one arm.
He didn.t stay to hear the splash this time but walked through the shadow world toward the only portal that glowed black, the portal to Hell.

Those pans are all black on the bottom and...
And then everything went black again.
The narrow black highway ribboned smoothly down hill under a canopy of trees.
Her gaze dropped to the driver's seat, where a small black military radio sat where none had been when she left the car.
The muscular woman, with short blond hair and clad in black tactical gear, stood in a stark white hallway.
George, I have a small black box about the size of your hand with nothing but a keypad in it.
He opened it and looked at the small black keypad a quarter the size of his palm.
She'd removed her personal identifiers, hacked into the government's tracking mainframe to deactivate the implant in her brain, and changed into the black tactical uniform Elise brought her over her civilian grays.
"You don't look like a spec ops soldier," he said, referring to the black uniform Elise insisted she wear.
He took each side of her collar and pulled, the effortless movement ripping the black uniform down the middle.
The man before her snatched one arm and flipped out a knife, cutting through her black clothing and tossing it aside.
Her black uniform was clean and waiting for her.
Soon after, the men in black mowed down two of Dan's men, and the three of them were left to fend for themselves.
They were going into the black water, hundreds of feet beneath them.
The occupant of the large chair in the corner of the living room launched towards her in a flurry of brown and black fur.
Tim stood in his black fed uniform, comfortable with the soldiers eyeing him.
Several soldiers—two in grays and three in black uniforms—approached the bonfire, speaking with the men gathered in a group on one side.
Two soldiers—one in black and one in gray—approached.
"Welcome," the man in black said at last.
He was more intrigued by the sight of soldiers in PMF grays as well as those in the regular military's black uniforms.
More soldiers in gray and black made their way down the bonfires, pausing to talk to Mike.
Mike stopped finally in a chamber where two soldiers—one in black and one in gray—were dusting themselves off.
"At first, I think it was knowing he was a black sheep like me. My sister always treated me like I was a blight on the family name. She tried to help me in her own way, I guess, which was better than what Rhyn's brothers did to him. I wanted to believe he could make it in the Immortal world, because if he could, I could, too," she started.
An hour glass with streaming black sand appeared in his palm.
Rhyn crept carefully through the demon scouts positioned throughout the forest surrounding the castle. The demons wore the Dark One's uniform of all black with waterproof cloaks and hoods. The demon side of him rendered his presence similar enough to a full-demon's that the others wouldn't be alarmed. He sized up each demon he passed, until he found one who appeared to be his size. The creature didn't hear his soft step, and the snapping of the demon's neck was the only other sound in the falling rain.
The water looked … black in the moonlight. She took a step back and looked up towards the moons. As Gabriel indicated, one moon was lower than the other.
The sounds of fighting grew faint and then disappeared. The stream wound through the jungle until it reached a small waterfall that fed into a massive lake whose black surface reflected the stars and moon. Katie slid down the hill beside the waterfall to the lake's edge, uncertain what to do. Gabriel hadn't mentioned the stream ending or the lake.
Rhyn opened a portal and walked through the cool shadow place. The shadow world felt … strange this time. He looked around, unsettled by the sensation that someone else was there. The black portal to Hell throbbed then dimmed, as if someone and come through.
Toby huddled against the black stone wall of his cell in Hell.
Rhyn awoke from the island dreamscape in the shadow world. He rose, uncertain what happened but recalling his urgency. He crossed through the glowing black portal into the one place he'd hoped never to see again: Hell. Unwilling to get stuck in the cell where he'd spent many lifetimes, he chose to open the portal into the office of the Council's betrayer, Sasha. The office was as he remembered it, down to the black flames in the hearth.
Yes. And the man in black who used to visit you.
"I'm not sure. I was at home when someone broke in. I heard someone screaming then something hot went straight through me. Everything went black, and I woke up here," the woman explained.
More thunder boomed. Katie wondered what other kinds of storms the underworld might have. Would it rain something other than black water? With her luck, it'd rain bugs, like the beetle nest she skirted.
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.
Gabe and a few other assassins in black fought off hordes of demons. Surprised, Rhyn launched into the melee with his dagger. He slashed through several demons before the creatures realized he was there. Wanting to keep them off balance, he morphed into his demon form and shredded the creatures with talons and fangs as deadly as theirs.
The black sand had run out. He'd missed his window. Rather, he missed this window. He looked over at the demon standing before him. At least one of his super-demons had survived. This one still wore half a face, that of Death's favorite assassin, Gabriel.
Gabe took the necklace, looking at the two emeralds on the black leather-like cord. He'd missed his necklace after eons wearing it. He'd missed his mother and baby brother. He squeezed them in his hand in the only hug he could give his dead family.
Gabe stepped closer to the Lake. Even through the black water, he could see the green souls at the bottom.
I was wearing jeans and a black shirt.
His hair was a tad past barbering time and he wore polished black shoes and black socks, inconsistent with the rest of his attire.
"You be careful now," Leo called after him, "it's pitch black over there on the beach."
When he could finally focus through the black of the night, he plodded forward, feet wallowing in the soft sand like a boat in a heavy sea.
He was slowly picking pieces of Styrofoam flotsam from his early morning cup of black coffee.
Both drank their coffee black and although both took a doughnut, Mrs. Byrne simply picked at hers, lifting the tiniest of crumbs with dampened fingertips.
He has a black and white sense of right and wrong.
His high-water trousers exposed black silk socks with little ladders up the sides, held in place with garters, something Dean hadn't seen in decades.
"Put on your glasses, you'll go blind doing that," Dean said, handing Fred his beer and reclaiming his rocker from Mrs. Lincoln, the large black cat that had adopted the pair the prior February.
Mrs. Byrne was dressed in a black jersey dress with a single strand of pearls around her neck.
She jumped off in her graceful way, a ballerina in a black fur coat.
A very tall, perfectly proportioned black man, looking like the front page of a fashion magazine, smiled and held out his hand.
Everything about him was perfect, from the glass polish of his black shoes to the knife-like crease in his thousand-dollar suit.
It's dark out, as black as Winston here, and we drop 'em and scoot.
Blond hair or maybe light brown—not black.
A stack of books rested in front of her and she sipped a cup of black coffee.
Cora had spotted a car, a black Buick this time, but had not written down the license plate number.
Two neighbors reported seeing a black car near the house.
I should be wearing black instead of enjoying myself, even if it's only once in awhile.
The guy had black hair and a mustache.
He might have a mustache, black hair or a shaved head for all we know, and two and a half million could buy a face-job making him look like Robert Redford.
He didn't know a name or a number but the fellow had black hair.
He was still above the timberline, devoid of any trees that would impair visibility so it was clear enough to follow the road with its many switchbacks and curves traversing the mountain below him, a black line clinging to the side of the cliff like a pencil drawing.
