Was he really worth her attention on what may be the last day of her life?

His sister's warning came an hour after he last remembered looking at the clock.
He replaced his weapons and washed his face, feeling very much like this was to be his last day alive.

It'll be the last, Watcher.
The last time y'all fought, you nearly destroyed the universe.
Her last hope for understanding what was wrong with her was someone she innately knew she didn't want to meet.
Damian grimaced, recalling the last time he'd seen the beautiful woman, his slain brother's wife.
She couldn't remember the last time she felt halfway decent.
He put on his hood last and tucked its edges into his sweater.
His visitor wore a T-shirt and had hair the color of last night's sunset.
But he was so handsome, and she so amazed he wanted to go out with her, that she ignored the instincts warning her it would never last.
Damian hadn't returned the night before after their last interaction.
Claire was as beautiful as the last time he'd seen her.
That's the last thing I need.
The last thing I need is to complicate things more.
None of that shit you gave me last year.
She walked in on me and Claire last night.

The last time he went to the surface, it had rained huge raindrops.

She eyed him and then looked to Damian, who stared at her with an intensity she'd last seen aimed at Claire.
She is … was the last of my family.
It's one of the last weekends before Christmas.
He typed in the last number.
She looked healthier and happier than during their last two encounters, and Linda had let it slip that she and Rainy were talking again.
As he pulled on the last of his clothes and crossed to his armory, a small, black velvet box nestled between two daggers drew his attention.
When was the last time you ate?
At last, she stopped speaking and lay, exhausted.
Sofia watched the last of the blood swirl down the drain.
The same instincts that warned her against the last deal with him told her she'd never win any bet with the devil I'll give you the terms first this time.
She wiped the last of the toothpaste from her mouth and glanced down.
If his touch was hard to resist last night, it was crippling today.
You did that last night, no matter what you choose to remember.
He was different than the last deity she'd slept with.
You are the last person who deserves to be here.
I loved you in this life and the last.
She'd seen how hungry he was last night.
The last time I did it, I robbed him of a few prisoners he didn't want to lose.
Another thought occurred to her as she thought about Katie, the half-demon's mate she met when last at the fortress.
There were no advantages with Darkyn and she was the last person on the planet who would try to seduce anyone, especially a demon.
Deidre moved towards it, recalling the last time she'd crossed through it.
He was yielding now, as he'd been last night.
Deidre tipped the vial to tap the last of the liquid out and glanced up at Wynn.
The truth of his words made her last meager attempt at resistance melt.
She was the last to lose hope, and it was being forced to see how out of place she was in Gabriel's equation that finally broke her resolve.
Last time, the death dealer wasn't interested in her.
Renting your room is the last thought on our minds!
I wanted the dream to last.
I owe you some bucks from selling them dishes we bought at last week's moving sale.
I thought last night you said we were going to be honest.
The last of Bird Song's unfed guests arrived with a yawn.
He knew Cynthia wanted to update him on her talk with Martha, but both realized time was short as they planned to take Martha to dinner for her last night under Bird Song's wing.
Caleb—Dean couldn't recall his last name—and his family had been guests in Ouray early in June.
All four Dawkinses joined the showing, which grew to include a widow from Texas, an Illinois couple with a sixyear-old and a handholding pair of seventy-something's with different last names.
He turned on some music with weak intentions of continuing his sheriff reading but instead just sat there, finishing the last of the merlot.
Both remembered the last time they'd watched a guest meet with a stranger and the no-end-to trouble that followed.
Never mind there were only three hundred die-hard fans with nothing else to do in attendance for the end of the year outing of a last place team.
The last item on Dean's list of pleasurable activities was punching one if you want this and two if you want that buttons, then sitting on hold while listening to elevator music from some bureaucratic office.
We burned our bridges trying to get custody of Martha last winter.
The next-to-last thing Dean wanted was to have to look out for the safety of his stepfather—the last was going himself.
Dean figured Fred was making a last ditch effort for a dispensation from his public duty.
I wouldn't do it if we were the first but unfortunately, we won't be the last, either.
Let's just go back to the last marking.
I've been visiting the San Juans every summer now for the last twenty years.
When at last they arrived at the trail's end, Westlake parked, placed a rock behind his wheel, and held out his polka-dot umbrella.
To escape the smiling innkeeper role, he plodded barefoot out back to the small patio, fired up the barbeque, popped the cap on the first of the last three Fat Tire Ales and stretched out on Cynthia's chaise.
What should have been unfinished was the pie you had for last night's supper and all those Fat Tire Ales.
Dean hadn't even managed a last name for bitch-Jennifer, much less the details of Dawkins v. Dawkins.
It took five trips by the time the auction was finished and the last of the purchased junk was dumped at Bird Song.
His back was aching by the time he hauled the last chest to the patio behind the inn where the raiders could divvy the spoils.
It's Paul and Paulette who are bunking separately, at least last night.
I saw a sign back in Kansas last month.
I watched it last summer and that was enough.
Alice was a geranium Cynthia had lovingly rescued from certain death by frost last September when the rest of the couple's first-year garden succumbed to the advancing seasons.
If anyone knows the whereabouts of Josh, last name unknown, contact Miss Edith Plotke on 6th Street.
I couldn't find nothing on Josh without a last name, but Ed Plotke was in the phone book for six years between 1956 and 1962.
Cynthia was standing at her bureau for a last minute comb of her hair.
He smiled hesitantly, as if caught with the last piece of pie.
When Dean didn't introduce himself, Faust gave Jennifer what he meant as an "old boy" pat on her arm and added, "Checking out the property one last time?"
We based the age on when the ownership of the mine changed hands and when it was last worked.
The Lucky Pup has apparently been sealed up for the last forty years until someone—kids, we think—broke into the mine this spring.
Two hours remained before the last of the day's celebrations— the Jeep flare parade down the mountain, followed by a massive fireworks display—so after finishing supper, the Deans began playing catch up with Bird Song's chores.
The town was choked with visitors, some already staking out their spots with folding chairs to view the later festivities—the last hurrah of the holiday.
His eyes searched toward the spot where he'd last seen the white vehicle speeding downward.
He stumbled the last few steps onto the road and into a glare of lights and buzz of activity.
She poured the last of the liquor into her glass.
A woman at the last house up the road heard the crash.
The weapon hadn't been cleaned since it was last fired, but all six chambers contained bullets.
Fitzgerald listed a college degree, birth in Ouray, and nineteen years in law enforcement, the last eleven in administrative duty.
There was a serious accident last night and the sheriff's deputy was unable to raise help when she called from the mountains.
Billy Langstrom died last night with alcohol in his car.
Last night she risked her life climbing down a precipitous cliff in total darkness in an effort to save Billy Langstrom.
Claudia called for order as Fred's friends chatted with a pair of women in the last row, no doubt bringing the new arrivals up to speed.
We have time for one last question—directed to Mr. Dean.
Dean hadn't detailed the last evening's happenings to the pair.
I did a stupid thing last night.
While Dean had been at odds with the man since their first confrontation last January, it was Fitzgerald's venomous comments at the debate that led Dean to now believe him capable of almost anything.
I don't know, but his gun has been fired since it was last cleaned.
He was plotting the rest of his hike last night.
Do you have a last name?
Charlie asked, mentioning the area's last major mining operation.
The last name is one of the things I'd like to know.
Do you know Josh's last name?
I'm gonna dig further on Monday but just the last name's a mighty strong coincidence, isn't it?
If something even more untoward than what the scene implied had actually occurred last evening, Dean would find himself squeezed between the proverbial rock and a hard place.
It was an abridged version, excluding any mention of last night's session at Lydia's apartment but detailing the missing bones and Dean's suspicion concerning Billy Langstrom's death.
That list has to be a lot smaller than who disappeared sometime between 1890 and last month.
Most queries were answered in monosyllables except the last, which Dean put off by explaining they'd discuss the bones at length in the morning.
There was a question of jurisdictions and when Weller volunteered that Martha was safe and comfortable at Bird Song where she'd spent the last six months, no one seemed to protest.
You were the last person to talk to him.
The answers fell into place, one after another like a child's wooden puzzle, and even absent the last lingering block, the finished the picture was finally clear.
I remembered the flash light in the Jeep, from the last time.
Martha suggested an appropriate burial for the tiny remains she dubbed "Pinkie" and services were conducted in the back garden, next to Mrs. Lincoln's last winter mouse-victim.
Every second of your life will be worse than the last.
But you're not exactly the same woman I saw here last night.
You didn't seem to mind me holding you for hours last night on the beach.
Last night you were ready to trust me.
The woman Gabriel touched today wasn't the one he touched last night.
