"Before," she said, knowing her face must be red.
Señor Medena eyed Carmen thoughtfully, but like Alex, there was no way of knowing what was on his mind.
Carmen shrugged, not knowing what to say.
Wouldn't it be wounded knowing he had been used to their advantage?
The nurse would have no way of knowing how uncharacteristic this behavior was for Destiny.
Only blindness could have prevented her from knowing that she was unusually attractive.
He had been perfectly content to step back and let her bear the brunt of Giddon's anger, even knowing that he had arrived uninvited.
It was difficult to believe that Connie would tell Allen, knowing his weakness for alcohol, but how else would he have known?
Yancey was an attentive date, always knowing exactly what to say and do.
She glanced up in time to see his mother give him a knowing look.
He knew she was not in the chair, but he had no way of knowing she had been to the building.
They exchanged knowing glances, and treated her like a lost dog.
What do you think I've been going through lately... wanting to tell you, wanting to hold you in my arms - not knowing if you felt the way I did.
Watching the two of them, it was all she could do to control her own tears... especially knowing that this was at least partly her fault.
Nothing she had ever experienced in her life was more painful than that moment, knowing his pain and not being able to say a thing to help.
Fritz and Royce exchanged knowing glances and Pete merely nodded.
Knowing that was one thing.
She gave him a cold stare, knowing her face was getting red.
Cassie waited silently, knowing they were unaware of her presence.
How could she have fallen in love with Bordeaux, knowing how unfaithful men could be?
How could I enjoy myself knowing he was being tended to and surrounded by strangers?
She glanced around the kitchen, knowing she should familiarize herself before breakfast, but feeling uncomfortable about exploring so soon after her arrival.
Loving him was no excuse, because even knowing he didn't love her, she still couldn't find the decency to leave.
It must drive him nuts not knowing.
He's been working with this guy, not knowing you slept with him.
I trudged through a boring day, knowing I'd return to an empty apartment as Betsy was off to Los Angeles for the entire week.
Simply not knowing how the information is known doesn't assign the solution to the occult.
According to Mr. Cooms everything was accomplished through third parties without him ever knowing our names.
The rest of us waited in nervous anticipation for her Friday arrival, not knowing if we'd even see her when she returned.
Can you imagine that... a guy in his thirties not even knowing if he's ever been kissed?
He stood there, trying to take deep breaths, knowing he'd lost his cool.
Back and forth smiles were exchanged and there was an instance of a quiet remark, followed by knowing smiles.
She soft-peddled her answers, knowing to tell the truth would only upset him further.
In his absence, it was too heart wrenching to even look, knowing he was unavailable and unable to help.
Quinn sits around knowing what we're doing, and the world is treating him like some minor failed unemployed scientist.
I told you because you're here and with Molly knowing, you'd find out anyway.
It took me back to when we were kids, in Amherst and this knowing kind of trust and kinship we'd shared.
When I heard his voice, my heart jumped, not knowing if he'd been told by Martha of Julie's earlier treachery.
I asked, knowing they probably hadn't tried.
Knowing Howie, I felt certain he loved her enough to forgive her.
Howie, I really feel for you but you've had this problem of not knowing about your past for a long time and you've managed to live with it.
Knowing the players in this game of chance is certainly taxing.
Knowing the local police included Detective Jackson, I suggested he contact the Simi Valley attorney first to find out if the vehicle I saw was in fact his.
I was in a cold sweat as I drove toward town knowing John Luke Grasso was in the area!
It was still early in California and I assumed she was at dinner though I'd been more comfortable knowing she and Molly had reached their destination without hitch.
I couldn't stand not knowing!
We were content to allow him this small title of uniqueness knowing it was killing him to be so close to a scientific miracle with hands tied and mouth gagged against announcing his findings to the world.
It killed me, knowing we might remain here, doing nothing, and not knowing what was happening to Betsy and Molly.
I spotted familiar references to our earliest sojourns in West Virginia and knowing the time and location Howie visited there at least gave me a starting point.
It must have been Molly; knowing her very life, was in my hands.
My heart fell, knowing the session I'd left behind was over and with it, our final attempt to locate Grasso's hide away.
She opened it and frowned, as if knowing why he was there.
"I don't make it, do I?" he asked, even knowing he shouldn't.
She didn't feel any better knowing Talon couldn't kill her here!
I'd be happy knowing you're safe.
He'd let her live, knowing she was obligated to report everything to Damian and powerful enough to be dismissive of any threat she might cause.
She sipped her cocoa, cheered by the thought of soon knowing what was wrong with her.
He smiled faintly, knowing how hard it was to rile up his trusted Guardian.
She shoved against him as hard as she could, knowing when he released her it was because he wanted to.
She ignored Han's knowing look.
Would she spend eternity like this, doomed to knowing only the dark secrets of those around her?
"Pierre, go please," Sofia said, knowing he'd be there when she turned.
He walked without knowing exactly where he went.
"The key is knowing that—if you're not a bad guy—they can't do more than bark at you," Linda confided to Sofia and Traci.
Like the assassin who obsessed about birthdays and clothing, there were two sides to the man before her: the warm, friendly stranger with whom she'd felt so comfortable she confided to him over the phone without knowing anything about him, and the tattooed thug before them in snug biker leathers.
The best she could hope for was eternity on this table, alone, knowing what she'd done to humanity's defender.
While she didn't yet understand the depths of her new world, she found peace in knowing this was indeed her world, too.
She hugged herself, wanting to throw her arms around him but knowing he was in as an approachable of a mood as Dustin.
Was she destined to feel that for Darkyn, despite knowing what he was?
The dread and guilt at the pit of her stomach were countered by the confusion of knowing that she'd fallen into the grip of the Immortal laws first with Gabriel then with Darkyn.
He hadn't killed her, because of the bonds and a deal she made without knowing how important it was.
She paused, knowing she shouldn't ask what she'd wanted to since finding out what he did.
I was terrified of Gabriel, knowing he was Death.
She didn't think she'd ever win with him, but she was thrilled knowing she'd done something right.
It was hard enough for her to stand before him, knowing they could've been together.
I had to make a choice without knowing what would happen or even if you would be there for me in the morning.
The knowledge made her want to scream, knowing she'd spent years blindly letting him talk to her like this and encourage her with pretty words, while he ensured the tumor in her head killed her.
She feared seeing them happy again, knowing she really was nothing more than a disposable stand-in until they were able to be together again.
Knowing what she did now about her destiny, would she have sought out a deal with Darkyn?
Gabriel had no way of knowing that Darkyn was in and out of her mind.
She willed her hair shorter and blonde once again, knowing he'd already read her mind and seen the reason why she changed her hair.
She had no real way of knowing.
It gave her a little bit of peace, knowing she wasn't solely at the mercy of the outlaw.
Of all the emotions running through her mind, the one that hurt the most was knowing that everyone outside Hell had already written her off as a goner.
"Martha!" he yelled over his shoulder, knowing the young girl would hear in the next room.
They made me wait an hour or so knowing what was coming.
Westlake's eyes met Dean's in knowing sympathy.
It's kind of spooky knowing that's a part of a human being.
Cynthia asked, already knowing the answer.
"Stay here," he said, knowing she had no intention of doing otherwise.
He drove directly home, knowing Cynthia would be terrified by his absence and the sound of sirens in the night.
"Don't wait up," he said as he left, knowing she would.
Cynthia and her husband exchanged knowing been-there, done-that smiles.
Knowing my mom, I'm not sure who did the seducing!
When told Patsy Boyd was traveling alone, Fred nodded with a knowing smile.
Knowing Lydia Larkin, I'm not so sure.
Dean just stared at her, not knowing how to respond to her matter-of-fact attitude.
The auctioneer just removed them later, knowing no one would buy the junk if they could see what was inside.
I went after him, not knowing that whatever he did, it was something only he could undo.
Knowing the most powerful creature – one the Dark One himself exiled at one point for his ruthlessness – had taken over Hell was another matter entirely.
He was able to sense her presence once more without knowing she'd been gone from his reach for an entire night.
He almost felt relief, knowing he couldn't ever be tempted to read her mind again.
He wasn't certain what frustrated him more: knowing he hurt her or knowing she'd changed every part of her – but the one that mattered.
"I take pleasure in knowing you can't sense me anymore, love," he replied with a half-smile.
"You really aren't supposed to be here," Gabriel chided, knowing it was useless.
He was right without knowing it.
He couldn't help feeling angry with the goddess who set this all up or escape the emotion he felt knowing his mate was the woman he'd loved for thousands of years.
She'd never hurt so much, even knowing Darkyn's mate was okay.
It was a cold, knowing smile, one that screamed I told you so.
She felt secure knowing that he was in charge.
It must be frightening for her, not knowing what was happening.
She gave in to the rush of desire, knowing that wherever he led, she could count on an utterly delightful experience.
It was still eerie walking around the place alone, knowing he had been there.
She left him there, wishing she could stay and yet knowing he could use the time alone with Jonathan.
She kept telling herself she had married him not knowing what that would be like, so basically he was the same person.
She touched his lips, not knowing whether he was awake enough to know he had spoken aloud.
It was somehow reassuring knowing that she and her cubs were out there somewhere.
Hopefully things would settle down for them now, but it was comforting knowing that their love was strong enough to survive the worst.
He had sex and went back to work, unable to sleep knowing all the issues he couldn't fix.
She laughed, knowing he couldn't possibly understand why she found it funny.
Part of her wanted to lean against him, knowing he wouldn't turn her away.
Knowing what's coming, I've never felt more alive than I do now.
He'd loved her every way he could, knowing the night she was dissatisfied with him, she'd replace him.
Gabe snorted, knowing his assassins were unaccustomed to being challenged by anyone.
Too happy knowing he was alive, Deidre hugged him harder.
She felt hurt, knowing she didn't deserve to feel upset at him after doing the same thing.
A side of her really didn't want to, even knowing he'd killed her boyfriend.
She ran as fast as she could, knowing it was her only chance.
He had no way of knowing how many the demons had claimed during the week his dealers had claimed none.
Desire and yearning crept into him, knowing she was so close.
There are emerging procedures that will help people who need it, but the cost is beyond what any hospital will spend, knowing no one can pay for it.
The knowing look on Wynn's face, however, made him realize the long dead-dead Immortal had figured things out.
It was getting more difficult to keep his distance from his mate, and he hated knowing he'd have to hurt her emotionally to prevent the tumor from growing too fast.
She was barely holding it together knowing about Death and the Immortals.
After a week of knowing him, she already had to concentrate hard to resist leaning into him whenever he was around.
It was a huge pill to try to swallow, knowing someone didn't like her for reasons she couldn't control.
I can't hurt anyone and knowing that I used to… her chin trembled.
Disconnected from the underworld, he had no way of knowing.
Wynn gave him a knowing look.
There was no way of knowing whose souls had crossed over to the mortal world, but he was going to trust that Fate was on his side, for the time being.
There's no obligation in knowing what it is.
"Does nothing bother you?" he asked without heat, knowing the answer.
He felt some peace knowing that --whatever Death wanted from him --she'd have to free him from Hell to get it.
Blinded by emotion, he made his way out of the underground compound without knowing where he went.
Despite Hannah's criticisms, she would still rather be here than at her apartment, even knowing Hannah would never believe her story about Toby and the death dealer.
She stared, knowing no amount of counseling would fix her when this was over.
He found some of his wired energy dissipating at the long walk and change of scenery despite knowing nothing good had ever come from a meeting with Sasha.
He'd long since stopped trying to escape, knowing the magic of Hell and the Dark One was too old for him to break.
She feared looking at Rhyn, feared knowing what shape he'd taken.
She landed on her knees, horrified yet knowing something was very wrong.
He scooped her up, not knowing what else to do.
"Back off, Kiki," he growled, knowing the words were true.
She feared knowing what he truly was, that she'd married a demon.
She moved closer to Ully, even while knowing the skinny nerd was the least likely to defend her.
She froze at the cultured voice with its rich accent, knowing the woman at the nearest table spoke about her.
Hannah said, fully knowing they did.
Molly appeared skeptical while the others exchanged knowing looks with each other.
Hannah never traveled light, and there was no way of knowing what Kris was doing.
Rhyn kept his distance, knowing just how jumpy an assassin could be.
Katie trotted to the chamber next to Kris.s, knowing the guest chambers were near but not sure which was which.
She was pleased by the news, despite knowing none of his brothers remotely deserved to be saved.
I think you.ll take this as good news, knowing how much you like to see me suffer.
She gasped, not expecting Kris.s traitorous lieutenant but knowing his presence was an awful omen.
A'Ran nodded in agreement, knowing it was the best he could do.
"Don't think they like not knowing what we're saying," she said with some satisfaction.
A'Ran approached her then, knowing his journey in the morning would delay the conversation they needed to have.
He rested his chin atop her head, knowing there were no words to comfort someone who hurt so deeply and regretful that he caused this pain.
He held her for a long moment, surprised to find her sorrow echoed in his breast at knowing she might choose to leave.
She wanted to curl up in the pod and sob until he rescued her, even knowing he'd never know where to find her.
"Ne'Rin's father?" she echoed, surprised to learn she'd overheard them plotting without knowing what they were doing.
It made her angrier at Evelyn and Romas, knowing A'Ran and his sweet sisters had been forced out of their home into a life of poverty.
He was frozen to move toward her, knowing in his heart it was too late.
"We're not going to get involved in another mess again, are we?" he asked, knowing full well the answer.
Wasn't it difficult to write, knowing so little about what really happened?
The new guest smiled in return but gave no overt sign of knowing the woman.
Cynthia asked with a knowing smile.
I bought her one of those phone cards so she can call without Shipton knowing about it.
You get used to knowing the different types of hardness and thickness.
Gladys, bedecked in an orange caftan and a fox fur jacket, smiled a knowing smile to Cynthia and was gone.
The good reverend set her up as a domestic so's he could visit her without anyone knowing about it.
And I'd accept whatever the consequences were and never be the same for the rest of my life, but I'm not sure knowing all that would still stop me from going ahead and doing it.
Dean pitied his wife, knowing the grueling trip that lay before her over the next several hours, not knowing what awaited her landing.
So much for her not knowing.
For seconds he was frozen to move toward her, knowing in his heart it was too late.
He gave Dean a knowing pat on the shoulder as he left.
She was admitting to a crime she didn't commit, knowing it was her son who did it.
Knowing her suicide would put the matter to rest.
He possessed the capability to make victims forget, yet when they were willing participants, as most were, he enjoyed knowing they remembered their time with him.
Because investing in new companies is entirely different than knowing when to buy and sell a stock.
Why is she so upset now, after spending all this time together while knowing?
She shook her head with a knowing smile.
I guess… but now, knowing you're safe from Victor, it was well worth it.
She gazed up into his angry red face, knowing she had gone one step too far.
She woke abruptly, not knowing what had disturbed her sleep.
Well, I know I'll feel better knowing he's here.
Josh left, not knowing what had come between them.
She screamed, racing for the tree and knowing she didn't have a chance of outrunning the dog.
She took some solace in knowing he had the power to protect her.
She refused, knowing there was too much at stake for her to dwell in her emotions.
Lana, on the other hand, couldn't shake the paralyzing fear that came with knowing they were being stalked by men who wanted them dead.
Why would he lie about knowing her?
Even knowing who he really was, she wanted her friend back.
After the War, the government created seven protected sites around the world with only one person at the site knowing what was there and security measures that were beyond anything the Peak had.
As much as she didn't want to admit it, there was no way of knowing who the bad guys were, not with Mr. Tim's information about the shadow government.
As sorry as she felt for all those who died, she felt relieved knowing she had the Horsemen and not Greenie or anyone who might inflict this level of damage to the country.
"We have no way of knowing where she went or how far," Dan pointed out.
Even knowing their relationship, he was hard to read.
Gabriel cursed under his breath. He had no way of knowing what kind of test a deity like Death could create, but it wasn't likely to be good. While he had full faith in Rhyn, he also knew better than to trust the petite woman in white standing in his dream.
Death shrugged with a knowing smile that told him more than if she spoke.
Another small smile crossed her face, and she sat down. Gabe left her, knowing even if she did sleep, it wouldn't be long. Death may have ignored their presence in her domain for three days, but something had made her reach out to him now. He knew they'd have problems at some point and only hoped he could get Katie out of the underworld, before his own fate was sealed.
I could die peacefully knowing you were safe, but I'm not worth saving.
"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.
Toby was silent, knowing a normal Immortal could never understand. He didn't yet have the full power of a real guardian angel, but he should've been able to do more than … nothing. Angels were placed with human mothers so they could understand the creatures they were meant to take care of. Human mothers raised them as their own, yet none of his human mothers had gone to the extent Katie did to try to protect him.
Something was wrong, but she had no idea of knowing what. At least he'd told her their destination.
Toby darted into the jungle, knowing they had little time, and that he had to find his human before anything else bad happened to her. He didn't know where the demon with her wanted to take her, but he knew where anyone leaving the underworld would go to escape.
Unable to sleep without knowing the truth, Toby huddled beneath the jungle leaves and stretched his senses until he found Katie. He couldn't put her in more danger, if there was something wrong with Ully. She was close enough for him to find when he needed to. If he kept some distance between him and Katie, he could figure out what was wrong with Ully without endangering her more.
At least you have the peace of knowing you did something.
Kris and Kiki both looked towards the sky when the thunder began. They'd both given their jackets to Hannah, whose step was growing slower the farther they went into the jungle. Kiki muttered but didn't openly bitch, probably knowing Kris had no patience for anyone insulting his mate.
Kris said nothing. Rhyn's assurances that Hannah was safe in Hell didn't sit well with him. Kris followed the half-demon without knowing where they might be headed, instead thinking of just how bad of a situation he'd left Kiki in.
Katie rolled onto her stomach, almost too tired to get up. The sky and jungle were growing dark. Through the bramble, she saw the marble palace. Death's palace. Katie's heart beat harder as she looked at her destination, not at all certain this was where she should've gone but not knowing where else to go.
Fred finally leaned back with the knowing look of a kid with a pocket full of gumdrops.
Teachers, cops, girls, judges and fellow gangsters had all shared the frustration of not knowing Billie from Willie.
He wondered about the last time she and her husband had made love, never knowing it would be the very last, ever.
Dean methodically searched the room, examining each of the missing man's items slowly, not knowing exactly what he was looking for.
Dean didn't stop at the house, knowing he'd have to explain his trip to Fred and take him along.
Vinnie nodded his head, a knowing look on his face.
Not knowing who would show presented a chance he might be recognized but as the eavesdropper wouldn't expect him to be there, it gave him an advantage.
She smiled a knowing smile in greeting as she looked him up and down.
"I'm not so sure about that," snarled Dean, knowing full well his threat was empty.
She's better off without him—and not knowing him for the jerk he is.
The clincher was your not knowing about the Byrnes' dream of sipping manhattans in Frisco.
Still, even knowing that Lori was interested in Josh, it was hard to imagine that she wasn't attracted to Alex.
Are you going to be happy a few years from now, knowing what you gave up?
I love having you there, but I don't sleep well knowing you're in the next room.
She'd spend the rest of her life knowing she caved in to desire only five days away from her goal.
"Thank you," she said, not knowing what else to say.
Of course, he had no way of knowing that.
She left the library knowing little more than before she arrived.
Bill was standing around looking uncomfortable, probably not knowing what to do.
Not knowing what to say, she said nothing.
Do you have any idea how I felt... feel, knowing that you'd rather be with them than traveling with me?
Carmen watched him, knowing there was more.
Carmen sat mutely beside Lori, not knowing what to say but sensing that nothing she could say would be any help.
And knowing it was his child they were adopting wouldn't hurt her decision.
He excused her behavior, knowing she grew up in a different environment.
She kept her eyes on Dustin, not knowing what else to do.
She went, walking towards the tree without knowing what to expect.
"You haven't called me that since …" Darian offered a small smile, aware those around him had no way of knowing the changes he'd gone through in the past week.
Darian smiled, knowing how much Damian loved his family despite his complaints.
"It must be important if you and the Original Being are interested," he baited, even knowing she'd ignore him.
