I've waited at that station for five hours.
He was going to like the clothes she bought for the trip.
Thank you for inviting us.
You've paid a dear price for this thing.
He had been taking care of her for nearly a year now.Advertisement
How much did you pay for it?
We're going out for breakfast.
You have no respect for me?
The guinea-fowl likes to hide her nest in out-of-the-way places, and it was one of my greatest delights to hunt for the eggs in the long grass.
Little Benjamin Franklin was very happy; for he was only seven years old.Advertisement
It works for us.
We'll just wait for her.
She is the Ruler destined to be my successor, for she is a Royal Princess.
The impulse gone, I fell down and cried for her to take me up in her arms.
She stared at him for a moment.Advertisement
Thank you for getting me off the hook.
This is not enough for Alex to support?
For the first time it mattered to her.
Thank you for calling me.
Seeing the position we are in, I think there is little need for discussion.Advertisement
He paused at the door to wait for her.
At home, presents were under the tree, waiting for their return.
Carmen headed for their room.
I'll ask him for the phone number.
The main point, however, was that they flew, and flew swiftly, if a bit unevenly, toward the rock for which they had headed.Advertisement
She had enough for the entire family.
She stretched and sat up, reaching for her clothes.
The day after his son had left, Prince Nicholas sent for Princess Mary to come to his study.
The roar of guns, the whistling of projectiles, and the piteous moaning of the cook, which rose above the other sounds, did not cease for a moment.
I apologize for my sister.Advertisement
Carmen watched him silently, waiting for an explanation.
How long did he think he could hide them - or avoid them, for that matter?
Can you watch the house for me while I'm gone?
She urged her mount a safe distance away, motioning for Jonathan to follow.
It must be difficult for Alex to keep you happy.Advertisement
He looked startled for a moment, and then composed himself.
They hadn't seen her in church for a while and they were worried about her.
Are you looking for a job?
The strangers took their seats at the table willingly enough, for they were all hungry and the platters were now heaped with good things to eat.
They talked for a few minutes and then Carmen left to take Destiny to their room.Advertisement
Dulce turned, and for a moment Carmen thought she might strike her.
The antidepressants didn't help that much, but maybe they were responsible for the fact that she had not lost control yet.
For the last time, Howard isn't interested in me.
Now it's time for her to relax.
But all along, they believed they would ultimately prevail—and not just win the war, but also do something epic that would change the course of history for all time.Advertisement
Felipa will be punished for her part in the incident.
Alex had asked one of the men go into town and rent a car for them.
For a moment they simply looked at each other.
She opted for the warm bath again.
It was like Mom not to ask for help.Advertisement
Connie had moved into the house for a while.
Lisa thanked her for all the help and assured her that she would be fine.
For a moment she hesitated, remembering their last discussion.
For a moment she hesitated, and then accelerated.
I like doing things for myself.
He wasn't buying it for one minute.
I'm going for a walk.
Was he searching for answers?
I scouted for the army a few years.
You set yourself up for that, boy.
Once again he lowered his head, but this time his lips lingered on hers, searching for a response.
It is not for me to say how he spends his money.
You have set aside the money for a college education.
The children played and they all talked for a while longer.
He hadn't developed a liking for her.
There was no reason for him to think his father might be romantically interested in her.
She headed for the door, ignoring the question.
As proud as she was of Jonathan, it was Alex who stayed on her mind for a long time after the phone call.
She was slicing some left over pork roast for a recipe tomorrow when Alex walked in and announced that Destiny and Jonathan were asleep.
Tonight he divided his attention between the knife and her face - no doubt waiting for her to broach the subject.
They admire you for what you have accomplished.
Other than the fact that she and Howard had already disrupted their lives enough for her, it was comforting to have her there.
It was a selfish thought, showing no appreciation for everything they had done.
If you put me in jail again, when I get out there won't be a safe place for you.
She jerked her wrist from his hand and turned away, thankful at least for the warning.
She knocked his hand away and headed for the house in a stiff jointed hobble.
I hate to ask you for another favor, but I wonder if I could pay you to drive me home.
When they reached the house, she invited him in for a cup of coffee.
He and Sarah had done far more for her than could have been expected.
He looked up and studied her face intently for a moment.
When you're only going to work for the summer, you can't be too picky.
For a moment he stared into his coffee.
The place was quiet and secluded, and Sarah would be a sweet person to work for.
Still, working for Giddon would be a challenge.
For a moment he looked as startled as she felt.
No, there's no need for you to make an extra trip.
Was he actually concerned about the fact that she might have been killed, or that his hideout might have been discovered in a search for her body?
He looked startled for a second, and then his eyes flashed, the brows furrowing into one.
This came for you today.
He hadn't been his usual jocular self for the last three weeks, and now this spontaneous trip to see his parents - and inviting her along?
She waited for an explanation, but he rode on in silence.
Sounds like a good job for a woman, doesn't it?
Why don't you ride up here with me for a while and give your horse a rest?
I've got a fire going for you.
Fritz was the first to show up for breakfast.
I'd have done it for you, and you wouldn't have to fix me a fancy breakfast either.
Much as she enjoyed watching them eat crow for desert, she knew their shame would be forgotten by suppertime.
After supper she cleaned up the camp and headed for her wagon.
Bordeaux seemed to be at a loss for words.
As for reaching the top of the earth, I have never heard that it is possible to do that, and if you succeeded in getting there you would probably fall off.
It took a decade or two for the new medium to be seen in light of itself, not just in terms of what it displaced.
There was the usual amount of discussion as to a name for me.
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.
Next, bolts for the doors of the new building were wanted and had to be of a special shape the prince had himself designed, and a leather case had to be ordered to keep the "will" in.
From this you will see that you have a perfect right to reassure the inhabitants of Smolensk, for those defended by two such brave armies may feel assured of victory.
For a moment she struggled with him until something changed in his eyes.
They would purchase a few things for Christmas tomorrow.
It had provided the opportunity for him to accuse her of being unfaithful.
No, it is a welcome home party - for you and Alex.
Alondra watched Carmen reflectively for a while and finally spoke.
Howard turned and headed for the door, indicating for Quint to follow.
She leaned against his chest for a moment, comforted by his sympathetic embrace.
No, it's no one my family knew but I think the change will be good for me.
At the car, Connie hugged Lisa while Giddon impatiently held the car door open for her.
She studied her new boss, for the first time completely aware of his features.
How could she blame him for wanting to smile?
Did she think Giddon had other reasons for bringing a young girl into the house?
Maybe Sarah suspected that Giddon felt sorry for her.
She waited for him to release her, but his lips moved across her cheek and down her neck with soft caressing kisses.
For a moment he looked surprised, and then he frowned.
I may be footing the bill, but you're working for Mom, not me.
She turned and started for the door, but his hand gripped her arm again.
There was probably an innocent explanation for the scene at the building.
The top was clean except for accessories and a few letters standing upright in a sorter.
Blood left her head so fast that for a moment she thought she would faint.
Standing at the mailbox, it occurred to her that the red flag would be exactly that for Yancey.
Maybe Sarah was making up a story to cover up for Yancey.
Suit yourself, but personally, I think it would be good for you to get out a little.
If he caught her in the woods, she could say she was looking for wild flowers.
He tested her foot for circulation.
Yancey, help her into the other room and make her get that foot up for the evening.
Lisa started for her room to get a book to read and paused in the hallway to look at a photograph again.
I always thought he felt more pity than love for the old lady.
Who could blame Valorie for shrinking from Yancey's temper?
Len is going to take care of the details for me.
Let him stew on that for a while.
She headed for her room and a little rest before supper.
We both agree that you need to get out of this place for a while.
At the car, he opened the door for her in a gentlemanly way.
For the first time, the idea of marriage crossed her mind.
Yet someone had told him that she was working for Sarah.
She felt disappointed when he released her hand and dug in his pocket for the house key.
He opened the door for her and they entered, quietly slipping into the kitchen.
Well, if he's under there, he's going to be stuck there for a while.
Lisa filled a cup for each of them, but Yancey wasn't interested.
He stopped and studied her for a minute.
For a moment she was shocked by his words.
Connie wouldn't be there for another hour.
Alright. I'll let it go – for now.
They had cake and ice cream and talked for nearly an hour about one thing and another.
It was time to test her freedom and go for that walk.
Going for a drive?
Going for a walk – in the woods.
She stopped to wait for him, unsure whether to be happy about his presence or annoyed.
After examining a rock for ants or other insects, she leaned against it, drawing in the clean smell of the forest.
He only sold them – for money.
Occasionally he glanced behind him, as if searching for someone, or something, that might be watching.
Maybe that was the attraction she felt for people like Yancey and Allen.
When she reached for the receiver, he released it reluctantly and then lounged against the wall where he could hear her conversation.
I hope I haven't stirred up trouble for you.
Yancey moved away from the wall and reached for the phone, but she glared up at him, hugging the receiver to her chest.
I left a message for him to check on you.
The line down the highway blurred for a second and she realized she had nearly fallen asleep.
His purpose for bringing her here was unclear.
I was beginning to think you went out in the woods again, looking for flowers.
She stepped around him and headed for the house.
For the moment, the soft couch was a haven to her exhausted and aching body.
I'm going to take you for a ride up there and show you some land.
He was silent for a few moments and she thought he was listening to the radio.
You're the first girl who has ever accepted me for what I am.
Her erotic dreams were proof that he was becoming more than a friend to her, and that thought was troubling - both from the standpoint of her goals, and the fact that she was setting herself up for rejection.
After that, it was 'each man for himself.
I guess sometimes a man doesn't show much appreciation for what he has.
We haven't even been out for an hour yet.
It probably looked better for him, anyway, as he didn't have a date.
We were looking all over the place for you.
Were they actually making plans for a lifetime together?
She felt responsible for the fact that Brandon didn't have that last day with his father.
This has been hard for you, as well.
Davis, don't you think you're a little old for her?
Davis should know such needless defense was embarrassing for her.
She had come prepared for such an emergency, but any delay might prove embarrassing.
She watched for soft areas where a wagon might get stuck.
Thanks for the help, guys, but I agreed to take care of my team and the cooking when I signed on.
She did enjoy the special treatment and the way he stuck up for her.
It would be nice to get away from the wagons for a while.
She was going to say that the bitter note in her tone was for someone who had betrayed her, but the whole world didn't need to know about their shame.
He was silent for a moment.
Pulling her blanket from under the wagon seat, she shook it and checked under the wagon for unwelcome guests.
After listening to the night for a while she fell asleep again.
The Indians were probably miles away, headed for Mexico.
You couldn't find any eggs for our breakfast?
They thought she was setting her cap for Bordeaux.
For some reason, she found it all amusing.
The railroad was scheduled to reach Ashley soon and there would be no need for freighting goods to the little town.
Cassie cooked rabbit and dumplings for supper that evening.
Still, leaving them wasn't going to be easy for her either.
But I know for a fact that the glowing end of a cigarette butt can be seen as far away as an arrow can be shot accurately.
She was confused and a little annoyed by a growing desire for a more serious relationship.
It might be the last trip for all of us.
You were looking for me, weren't you?
Your father asked me to look for you while I was out this way, and bring you home if I could.
She turned, running blindly for the privacy of her wagon.
For telling the truth.
He left us kids to fend for ourselves and now he thinks he can come back and pick up where he left off.
Bordeaux watched her silently for a moment.
As for abandoning his children, there's more to it than you think.
Where I've lived for the last two years, thanks to him.
He watched her for a few minutes while she crawled under the wagon and pulled her blanket around her shoulders, and then he walked away.
For a long time she lay wide awake with her eyes closed.
All this work is for nothing.
She watched them talk for a few minutes.
I can't make the decision for you.
With the canteens full, they started for the cave entrance and then stopped.
Their hiding place was safe for the present.
When the last horse had been gone for a few minutes, he stood.
No, I can vouch for the fact that it is Indian blood.
The soft sand in the ravine would make it simple for the Indians to detect where they had emerged.
She kept a keen eye out for the same kind of weed and was surprised at how much they found.
We're going to stay here for the night.
We can rest tonight and head for Ashley in the morning.
He took her hand and led her across the camp, heading for a jumble of rocks.
It was an unlikely spot for water.
What are you waiting for?
He stepped forward and reached for her, but she took a step back.
The memory of her weakness for him was all too fresh.
What were his plans for the future?
Grabbing the canteens, she headed for the spring.
We've been invited to stay for breakfast.
He reached for her arm and she jerked it away from his grasp.
She stood on her toes and searched for Royce.
We'd have waited for you, but we was outnumbered three to one and didn't have time to look for you.
Pete and Davis had searched for Cassie and Bordeaux.
The two men talked for a few minutes and then one rider turned his bay horse toward the wagons.
The long ordeal in the desert was over, but what waited for her now was uncertain.
What about her feelings for him – perhaps gratitude?
He was the one for her – but was she the one for him?
Then this is for you.
Accepting his proposal of marriage might be setting her up for a fall, but declining was surely something she would live to regret.
I've been looking for you every since.
I know you love me, but when people find out I lived with the Indians for three years...
He had known her for a long time, and he had come to Ashley hoping she would be here.
No, Bordeaux had only one reason for wanting to marry Cassie - the ranch.
Excuse me for staring, but aren't you the young lady that had Ashley in a dither?
As for having the town in a... dither,...
For a moment she was tempted to tell Darcie.
After all, they had known and loved each other for a long time.
Were it not for the ranch, she might even feel happy for them.
I'm sorry things didn't work out for you.
Darcie leaned back in the seat and watched Cassie reflectively for a few minutes.
It was nice to get away for a while, but the way women acted, you'd think I was romantically involved with every one of the men.
For Bordeaux, the experience made him valuable.
For Darcie, it was the opposite.
For her sake, she hoped he would.
She wanted to hate Bordeaux for what he had done, but like a shameless hussy, she still longed to hear his voice - feel his touch.
As for the ranch, she had always known it could be taken away.
By the time the stage arrived, she was packed, but not ready for the trip.
Could you wait for me here, honey?
Without waiting for an answer, he turned to Cassie.
It was all working out very well for him.
For a moment she avoided him.
How was I supposed to know you had a thing for Davis?
But their conversation... was an expression of love for a sibling – siblings that had apparently been through a lot together.
In fact, they appeared to be hanging on her every word – waiting impatiently for the answer.
He slapped the team into action and they headed for town at a more leisurely pace.
He told me he got on a ship in Galveston and sailed for three years.
As far as that went, Mom did seem mighty upset for a while after Dad left.
He was wrong for using a bottle to settle his problems, and wrong for being unfaithful to his wife.
He was wrong for running instead of making peace.
I'm not trying to make excuses for his behavior.
That evening everyone met in Springtown for an engagement party.
He wasn't much for conversation.
She waited for him to open the conversation, idly wondering if it would be ten before he spoke.
That's a long way to drive for steak and potatoes.
For a second she thought he was going to smile.
She paused, realizing he was looking for a deeper meaning.
I suppose it is different things for different people - dreams or goals.
Apparently he was merely looking for companionship - his kind.
It's an heirloom of sorts; a big old house - too much for me to take care of and work the ranch as well.
The house sits more than a mile off the snow plow route, so sometimes I'm snowed in for a week or so.
Tomorrow Uncle Henry and I must start back for Kansas.
And now, my friends, please to excuse My lisping and my stammers; I, for this once, have done my best, And so--I'll make my manners.
The milkers would let me keep my hands on the cows while they milked, and I often got well switched by the cow for my curiosity.
There is no play in them, for this comes after work.
Pierre suddenly saw an outlet for his excitement.
Pressing his lips together he made that effort for the twenty-thousandth time and lay down.
For a moment she wanted to retract the part about being entertainment, but when he spoke she realized it might have been exactly what she needed to say.
Her expression must have looked stricken, because he reached for her.
She snuggled into his arms and felt safe for the first time since the accident.
I didn't mean to make you late for your appointment.
The answer surprised her, but for some reason she was sure he wouldn't hit her.
She simply wasn't looking at it – or maybe for it.
I keep warning you about the wild life, but you have to learn for yourself, don't you?
She had assumed the pool was for his daughter.
He reached for her robe.
She started for the patio door and he gripped her arm.
She was searching through her house for some unidentified object when a shadow emerged from the dark.
For a few minutes he sipped it in silence.
Yancey was down the trail to whatever he did for a living.
She stood for a moment, trying to remember what the smell was.
Soon she would need to come back home to get ready for college.
The one you dumped me for.
Allen stared at her for a minute, as though confused.
Then he started for her.
You're not leaving here until I get the information I came for.
For a few minutes she thought her windpipe was crushed.
And yet, Howard made no move to call for help.
He reached for her, his expression pure desire.
How did you know Allen was looking for me?
Why didn't Howard call for help?
You might want to watch out for him too.
Thank you for driving all that way to make sure I was safe.
And yet, it had been her goal for over three years.
Slipping into a pair of tennis shoes, she headed for the kitchen.
It was simple enough to wander around outside, as if she were looking for something.
Her heart raced as she frantically searched for a place to hide.
It's all there, and thanks for the business.
She waited for him to get a little way down the path before she slipped from her hiding place and went to the door.
She glanced around the dimly lit room, desperately searching for a way out.
The window was barely large enough for her to pass through, but she might be able to get out that way.
There was no way to lock the screen, so she simply pushed it shut and started for the house.
She shivered, wondering what plan Yancey had for dealing with her.
In the meantime, she had to avoid Yancey while she thought up some excuse for leaving.
If she could get to her telephone, she could call someone for help.
For a moment Lisa was too stunned to say anything.
Lisa waited for his reply in tense silence, but his response filled her with equal anger and pain.
Did he marry Valorie for love, or because she found out about his business?
He listened for a minute and then his tone was sharp.
Lisa turned and started for her room.
His voice shot out after her and she darted for the bedroom.
He was quiet for a minute and she wondered if he'd given up, but no such luck.
She grabbed the clothes and started for the suitcase again, and he slammed the lid down.
I thought it was for their own good.
You wanted nice things, so you substituted your family for a conscience.
Maybe he was making something up for their benefit.
She reached for her luggage.
They stared at each other for a moment.
If my work slowed down, that was a loss of dollars for him.
I've kept my identity hidden for five years now, but I knew deep down inside that it couldn't last forever.
I didn't think I had a chance of getting someone like you to sit for me.
They gazed into each other's eyes for a moment before he spoke.
For Quint, those pieces were essential to wrapping up his case.
I had already searched for the name Yancey Giddon, but found nothing.
It also told me he was willing to make a sacrifice for her protection.
I could understand why he would be chasing her, but if I'd have known she'd go for a guy older than me...
I knew he and Lisa had dated for a long time, and I knew they had a falling out, but I never thought he'd try to hurt her physically.
For every tragedy, there is a possible happy ending.
Lisa wasn't looking for it, but when she saw it, she knew what it was.
Closing her eyes for a few precious moments, she breathed deeply and let her breath out in a long, relaxing sigh.
One hand shot out in an instinctive search for anything to stop her fall.
Try walking in my shoes for a day.
