They used to hang in long festoons from our porch, filling the whole air with their fragrance, untainted by any earthy smell; and in the early morning, washed in the dew, they felt so soft, so pure, I could not help wondering if they did not resemble the asphodels of God's garden.
He was ill and did not leave his study.
As a matter of fact, I did.

The advisors of the Princess did not like this test; but she commanded them to step into the flame and one by one they did so, and were scorched so badly that the air was soon filled with an odor like that of baked potatoes.
And yet, didn't clinical words like selective reduction and gestational carrier mask the facts?
I didn't realize what a mess it was.
Lisa hesitated, afraid of blundering further, but why did he need a sitter when his mother lived in the house?
What he did there was a mystery.

For some reason that didn't seem likely.
Oh, and we were whispering so you knew we were talking, but you didn't know what we were saying.
You didn't say a word to your father, but you snarled at me as though I did something wrong.
Then he turned away and rubbed the back of his neck in that way he did when he knew he was wrong but wasn't sure why.
His words were comforting, even if they didn't resolve her concerns.
Of course, that didn't mean much.
Then again, maybe he figured she wouldn't understand them if she did look.

He was respectful of her concerns, but they didn't see eye-to-eye on any of it - except the fact that they both wanted another child.
In fact, that was a good way to make sure he didn't.
Alex didn't know about her fear of flying and she'd just as soon he didn't learn.
The Christmas tree could only be seen from the back of the house, but that didn't matter.
I didn't have much of an idea about the cost of raising children then, either.
No doubt he didn't like being reminded that her dream could only be achieved by unnatural methods.

Carmen assigned responsibility for that to herself because she didn't notice early enough that Destiny was sick.
He would want to know, yet if he did, he might try to drive in on icy highways.
Of course, to an extent, she did.
He did a lot of researching before he talked to me.
Nor did he say anything when she exchanged the guitar for a violin and paid for lessons.
We didn't have Jonathan when he was an infant, and there was so much sadness at the time Destiny was born.
Still, that nagging feeling in her stomach didn't go away.
They didn't make it to the restaurant.
I guess it was storming so bad that they didn't see or hear the train.
Even the IV didn't seem real.
The antidepressants didn't help that much, but maybe they were responsible for the fact that she had not lost control yet.
I didn't mean to pry.
I didn't know you expected a gold-engraved invitation.
And what did she know about him?
What did she know about him?
Sarah and Giddon both seemed content with the arrangement, but she felt guilty about the money she earned... or didn't earn.
Connie still didn't know about her car.
Did you invite him here?
She changed into a sleeveless blouse and shorts, wondering as she did so if he would object to the shorts.

Of course, it could happen, but it simply didn't fit his character.
As long as she didn't wind up at that building, her safety was of no real concern.
Maybe if he saw that she didn't go near the building, he would relax his guard.
But then, he didn't actually say he told her.
But no, he had Diablo with him – or did he?
Apparently he did a lot of walking.
He called out behind her, but she didn't stop.
Of course, that didn't mean he wasn't involved.
Allen didn't do drugs either – as far as she knew.
Of course, she didn't leap cars with motorcycles or sky dive, but in retrospect, she had always been attracted to danger – at least to some degree.
As he walked away, her stomach did a flip-flop.
He did ask if she could talk.
Maybe he had more information he didn't want to give over the phone with Yancey listening.
In fact, until the death of her family, she rarely ever dreamed – or at least didn't remember them.
If he was guilty, he probably deserved it, but is family didn't.
She didn't want the family picture, as that was the one they used in the newspaper.
At least he didn't appear to be drunk.
And if I did, I wouldn't tell the likes of you.
How... did he... know I... was here?
How did you know I was here.
No, she wasn't sure, but that didn't seem to matter.
Maybe he didn't know what to do, or that she needed help.
I didn't send him.
Then how did he know I was here?
But you sent him to get information about Yancey, didn't you?
I didn't tell you to send Allen.
I didn't have any idea he'd do this to you.
He did so unwittingly.
I banged on the door, but you didn't answer.
She didn't act like she was afraid of him.
They followed the course of a broad stream and passed several more pretty cottages; but of course they saw no one, nor did any one speak to them.
Zeb also wanted to see his home, and although he did not find anyone morning for him, the sight of Hugson's Ranch in the picture made him long to get back there.
The schoolhouse was two or three miles from home, but he did not mind the long walk through the woods and over the hills.
They did not kill him, but they drove him out of the city and bade him never return.
The boy stammered and did not know what to say.
If somebody outside your village knew something, it did not matter; for you, it did not exist.
But as we grew up, reality set in that market forces did not allow those activities to pay enough to support us, so at some point we all figured out we had to "earn a living."
Of course I did not know what it was all about, but I enjoyed the pleasant odours that filled the house and the tidbits that were given to Martha Washington and me to keep us quiet.
But I did not find out the secret for several years.
Some have asked what I got to eat; if I did not feel lonesome; if I was not afraid; and the like.
They make shift to live merely by conformity, practically as their fathers did, and are in no sense the progenitors of a noble race of men.
And having got rid of this young man who did not know how to behave, she resumed her duties as hostess and continued to listen and watch, ready to help at any point where the conversation might happen to flag.
Helene was so lovely that not only did she not show any trace of coquetry, but on the contrary she even appeared shy of her unquestionable and all too victorious beauty.
Everyone waited, so emphatically and eagerly did he demand their attention to his story.
She feared for her brother who was in it, was horrified by and amazed at the strange cruelty that impels men to kill one another, but she did not understand the significance of this war, which seemed to her like all previous wars.
With everything going on, Carmen didn't have time to worry about flying, but when they were all sitting at the airport, she finally had time to stew over it.
Felipa didn't seem to notice anything unusual in his attitude, so maybe he had always treated them that way.
In fact, maybe he didn't know her very well.
Of course, they didn't have the same mother, either.
I didn't bring anything formal.
Not now implied later, but that didn't feel comfortable either.
The idea of making love in a strange bedroom was disturbing enough, but with only a door between them and the children, locked or not, it didn't feel right.
She certainly didn't feel any different.
But then, a party didn't seem like something Señor Medena would plan.
Carmen continued wrapping gifts and didn't comment.
I guess I didn't at first.
I didn't know you were awake.
But he didn't answer.
If he thought Alex was warming to him, he saw more than she did.
She slept so soundly that she didn't wake when Alex returned.
A friend, certainly, but their relationship was also romantic so best friend didn't seem like a good description.
I didn't realize you felt that way.
It made a safe ball that didn't go far, which was perfect for Destiny.
Some might think Dulce didn't know what she was missing, but Carmen suspected she did.
Certainly she wanted to feel special to Alex - and did.
I didn't mean to make you uncomfortable.
If he knew who Alex really was, he probably knew more than Alex did.
Carmen rubbed her sore neck and searched the room for Alex again, but didn't find him.
And why didn't he introduce her?
If his family had lived in the United States for centuries, why didn't they learn to speak proper English?
He danced with you that often and didn't tell you his name?
She didn't come here to talk to me.
The kitchen was open all the time, but Alex didn't drink - or never had to her knowledge.
He didn't sound like he had a cold.
At the time she had thought Dulce was annoyed because she didn't like the punch.
It was something Alex didn't need to know.
He probably didn't even realize what he said.
It was simply that he didn't want to tell her - which amounted to the same thing.
She let the conversation drop that night, but early the next morning Dulce caught him in the hallway and it was clear that she didn't think anything was settled.
Carmen glanced at Alex, but he either didn't notice her attention, or he was avoiding her eyes.
Surely it didn't take that long to tell him she felt abandoned.
It didn't seem like Christmas.
We didn't mean to keep all of you waiting.
Alex didn't answer and it went to his voice mail, so she left a message.
It looked as stiff and formal as his hacienda did.
Still, it did look stylish.
I did not mean to hurt you.
You didn't hurt me.
I didn't need you to rescue me.
Alex didn't want to come down here.
He was making noises like his father was the one he didn't trust, but it wasn't that simple.
What have you two been arguing about, and why did you kiss your brother like that?
How long did he think he could hide them - or avoid them, for that matter?
Was that why Alex didn't want to talk to her about it?
Was that what Dulce was arguing with him about - that he didn't know what he wanted?
She combed Destiny's hair into pig tails, and then on impulse, did the same with hers.
In fact, maybe that was why Dulce didn't come to breakfast.
How did Dulce react when he nearly married Tessa?
He had the background and the education, but he obviously didn't have the inclination to adjust to the one being forced on him.
How did he always manage to do that?
No wonder he thought she didn't want to be burdened with the details.
So why did she feel so threatened?
I thought maybe we could get a van, but I didn't know if we could afford it.
Did you miss the job?
Did you need time away from me?
I had connections no one else did.
Alex didn't like any kind of discord, which generally meant that she shouldn't contest anything he said or did.
He didn't tell her about the money because it would lead to questions - both about the money and the fact that he had been hiding it from her.
All right, so he wasn't trying to hide his wealth, but he certainly did try to hide his family.
He didn't want anything to do with them, so they didn't exist.
He didn't want to go and he had made no effort to get along with his father.
There was no immediate need for a van and if they did need one, they... he, obviously had the money.
I did, but apparently that status changed.
The whole truth didn't sound nearly as bad as part of the conversation.
I didn't ask him that.
Alex was secretive and he did like to be in control.
I did and I thought he was going to bite my head off.
Are you blaming a little boy for what his mother did?
If she was, I didn't know about it.
Did she ever regret going back to her husband?
Did Alex know Katie carried this burden?
He didn't act concerned when she told him she had looked at them - not until she questioned the source.
So where did the money come from?
He had access to his part much earlier than I did, so he was able to make some investments that really paid off.
But why didn't you say something to me about all of this before now?
Still, all the information Katie provided created a clearer picture of why Alex acted the way he did at home.
Maybe they had, but what choice did they have?
Of course - and he wanted to be there as much as she did.
Did you sleep alright?
Jonathan and I did the chores.
God is punishing my daughter for what you did.
It was only two thirty in the afternoon, but she didn't want to go back to sleep.
They did another x-ray this morning and the infection has spread to the other lung.
If he was coming down with a cold, he needed rest - and Destiny didn't need to be exposed to it.
Destiny didn't need her at the moment.
Destiny probably wouldn't wake before they returned, and even if she did, Señor Medena would keep her occupied.
If he was on the road, he didn't need to be distracted.
At worst... she didn't want to think about that.
Alex told her to call him back if she didn't give birth in an hour.
He didn't bring it up again - not even when Jonathan was unable to get his short arm into a comfortable position to play the guitar.
When she glanced up at it, she did a double take.
He said he would be gone for two days, but didn't say why he was going.
He didn't look up.
Katie said she should confront him when he did that - tell him how it made her feel.
Still, she did have the right to know.
She didn't want to cry.
He'd feel sorry for her and she didn't want that.
So that was why he didn't want her to be involved.
I don't want you to lose anything, but you know I'd want to be with you even if we didn't have a dime to our name.
That didn't sound like Alex.
Makeup was something she rarely wore, but she did have some.
He didn't need any tips on the art of romancing.
Alex didn't like highly spiced food, so she decided to bake Cornish game hens for the base of the meal.
It was the first time she didn't blush.
Still, a person didn't need to say it to feel it.
He would simply evade the question - like he did in Texas.
While her romance session failed to reveal his problem, it did wonders for her confidence.
He's treating you like he did me.
It was hard to say whether Alex was withholding facts so she couldn't contest his decisions or simply because he thought she did not need to know.
Obviously he didn't actually believe that.
No wonder Dulce didn't want to let go of him.
When she didn't respond, Alex looked up.
Maybe she didn't know him as well as she thought she did.
But then, if Tessa didn't marry him, why didn't Dulce tell him about the baby?
That's why I didn't tell you.
He shrugged, but didn't respond.
I don't know why she didn't ask for it before - or why she didn't tell me about the baby.
He didn't marry Dulce.
Probably because he didn't know how to handle the situation - and Alex always wanted to be in control.
Why would he need to lie when he could simply tell her that it didn't concern her?
I didn't know what to tell you until then.
As it turned out, Señor Medena had the same perspective on the situation as Carmen did.
If he didn't love you, he wouldn't care.
He didn't comment, but several times that evening she caught him watching her with a reflective expression.
Everyone relaxed and the conversation did a one-eighty.
Carmen glanced at Alex and did a double take.
I didn't know it would be like this.
I didn't think I would feel this way.
We didn't have the opportunity to prepare for her.
I guess we both had a change of heart, didn't we?
I hope you didn't do that on my account.
I did not take your Dad away.
He didn't succeed in gaining custody.
If they wanted what he and Carmen had, why didn't they go out and find it?
So why did you think she was out of your league?
I graduated two years ahead of her and didn't keep in touch.
I thought you didn't judge people by their pocketbooks.
She didn't know anything about what he was doing.
Maybe friends didn't let friends drive drunk, but how did they stop them when there were so many?
That car didn't look like much even when it was clean, but it was reliable.
So they did suspect her.
I didn't mean to be so disrespectful.
That night exhaustion did what no pill could do, and she finally slept.
Why did you tell Howard about the books?
I didn't tell Howard or anyone else anything about you.
The sun got up before she did the next morning.
It didn't really matter.
The clever cost savings idea of sleeping in the car didn't sound so safe right now.
I didn't mean to yell at you, but you nearly scared me to death.
Her spirits did a roller coaster as she desperately watched his retreating back, and then comprehended his words.
