The little man shook his bald head.
He was quite an old little man and his head was long and entirely bald.
Maybe you are having a little water gain, but you look great.
You're going to have a little brother or sister.
The little man looked toward her and seemed as much surprised as she was.
"You're supposed to eat with a spoon or a fork," she instructed calmly as she finished wiping the little hand.
Yet he was arrested last week for selling drugs to kids like little Nicholas over there?
As the little Wizard turned to follow them he felt a hot breath against his cheek and heard a low, fierce growl.
Bear with me a little longer.
"Who built these lovely bridges?" asked the little girl.
He was only a little more weather-beaten than when I saw him last.
"I don't like these veg'table people," said the little girl.
"That does not sound especially pleasant," said the little man, looking at the one with the star uneasily.
Not just a little better, but gloriously and fantastically better.
They needed to gain a little weight before they would be released from the hospital, though.
Maybe he felt excluded - or maybe he simply needed a little encouragement.
Of course, the little red truck Dad had been drooling over.
In the end, our fundamental challenge is to become better individuals, and technology offers little help on that front; it is up to each one of us to solve that for ourselves.
Alex had directed the little he said to her only.
The little girl stood still to watch until the train had disappeared around a curve; then she turned to see where she was.
Maybe a little time to yourself is a good idea.
I should get rid of this and buy something a little more feminine.
The storm has blown two of the little ones out of the nest.
And what little they have promised they will not perform!
The blue skirt and sweater were a little dressy for jail, but they'd no doubt give her some fashionable stripes to wear anyway.
Noticing that the light was growing dim he picked up his nine piglets, patted each one lovingly on its fat little head, and placed them carefully in his inside pocket.
However, if one designs to construct a dwelling-house, it behooves him to exercise a little Yankee shrewdness, lest after all he find himself in a workhouse, a labyrinth without a clue, a museum, an almshouse, a prison, or a splendid mausoleum instead.
Princess Mary spent half of every day with little Nicholas, watching his lessons, teaching him Russian and music herself, and talking to Dessalles; the rest of the day she spent over her books, with her old nurse, or with "God's folk" who sometimes came by the back door to see her.
I'll prepare little Natalie.
I was born on June 27, 1880, in Tuscumbia, a little town of northern Alabama.
Your little Texas stud.
You're going a little fast.
"I cannot think of leaving these little things here to be trampled upon," said the general.
And in it were some odd little pictures, which he never grew tired of looking at.
The Keller homestead, where the family lived, was a few steps from our little rose-bower.
"Not a very pretty one," he answered, as if a little ashamed.
"No," answered the little man, in a puzzled tone.
How long is this going to be your dirty little secret?
Once this ball gets rolling, it will speed up and, because of it, we will all wake up each morning with a little extra spring in our step and sparkle in our eye.
It's a little early, but twins tend to have their own schedule.
One was black as ebony, with little bunches of fuzzy hair tied with shoestrings sticking out all over her head like corkscrews.
The three men, as they passed, looked down and saw the little birds fluttering in the cold, wet grass.
Seeing the position we are in, I think there is little need for discussion.
Destiny was a little lady, waiting until he came into the kitchen before plowing into him.
Howard had insisted on picking up his little sister that night for safety reasons.
"What a delightful woman this little princess is!" said Prince Vasili to Anna Pavlovna.
"A little," Carmen responded, "but I suppose that's natural, given our relationship.
Even Angela and little Nick...
You know--under the paperweight on the little table.
A little serf boy, seeing Prince Andrew, ran into the house.
Once more something whistled, but this time quite close, swooping downwards like a little bird; a flame flashed in the middle of the street, something exploded, and the street was shrouded in smoke.
Then a little man jumped out of the basket, took off his tall hat, and bowed very gracefully to the crowd of Mangaboos around him.
The little man gave a bow to the silent throng that had watched him, and then the Prince said, in his cold, calm voice:
"Oh, Edward, there is Mr. Harris!" whispered the little girl.
The little porch was hidden from view by a screen of yellow roses and Southern smilax.
While he was away Princess Mary, Dessalles, Mademoiselle Bourienne, and even little Nicholas exchanged looks in silence.
The larger bell was muffled and the little bells on the harness stuffed with paper.
His satellites--the senior clerk, a countinghouse clerk, a scullery maid, a cook, two old women, a little pageboy, the coachman, and various domestic serfs--were seeing him off.
'Take me away,' says she, 'don't let me perish with my little children!
Maybe they were both a little wrong... and a little right.
From that vantage point, if you had tried to look fifty years ahead to what the world would be like in the year 2500 BC, you would have expected very little change.
The family consisted of my father and mother, two older half-brothers, and, afterward, a little sister, Mildred.
The little princess went round the table with quick, short, swaying steps, her workbag on her arm, and gaily spreading out her dress sat down on a sofa near the silver samovar, as if all she was doing was a pleasure to herself and to all around her.
But these sounds were hardly heard in comparison with the noise of the firing outside the town and attracted little attention from the inhabitants.
Very little would change in this seventy-year stretch of life.
Riding past the pond where there used always to be dozens of women chattering as they rinsed their linen or beat it with wooden beetles, Prince Andrew noticed that there was not a soul about and that the little washing wharf, torn from its place and half submerged, was floating on its side in the middle of the pond.
For a long time I regarded my little sister as an intruder.
"I have something here for little Edward," he said.
When I go to far-flung places, I often know little of local customs and, through ignorance, I have committed more than one faux pas.
When I was about five years old we moved from the little vine-covered house to a large new one.
The noise of wheels, hoofs, and bells was heard from the gateway as a little trap passed out.
Can you hold lunch for a little bit?
Howie relaxed a little.
The little boy was unconscious.
Only a little kid could think that was real, and not a very smart little kid at that.
Perhaps the prior sheriff thought that sort of little joke is funny.
Dean was happy at a little time away from Bird Song.
"You ought to join one," declared the little man seriously.
At once the Mangaboos began piling up the rocks of glass again, and as the little man realized that they were all about to be entombed in the mountain he said to the children:
"It's good, anyway," said Zeb, "or those little rascals wouldn't have gobbled it up so greedily."
But every now and then there would be a little difference.
Maybe a little levity would help.
I'll be back in a little while, sweetheart.
I was a little surprised at the invitation.
We're running into a little turbulence from the storm.
Carmen climbed off Alex's lap and took Destiny's soft little hand in hers.
He had an idea of how his father felt, fearing he would have to watch his little boy grow and not being able to be the provider.
You thought you had a son for a little while.
Dorothy was surprised to find how patient the people were, for her own little heart was beating rapidly with excitement.
There sat the thorny Sorcerer in his chair of state, and when the Wizard saw him he began to laugh, uttering comical little chuckles.
"But I saw the little pigs with my own eyes!" exclaimed Zeb.
"How did they happen to be so little?" asked Dorothy.
The only thing that made Princess Mary anxious about him was that he slept very little and, instead of sleeping in his study as usual, changed his sleeping place every day.
Jonathan wants a little brother, not a little sister.
June leaped into July and Random gave birth to a little filly for Jonathan.
"Nonsense!" said the little man, turning red--although just then a ray of violet sunlight was on his round face.
He got down from his horse and very gently took the little ones up in his big warm hands.
Allen had been drinking at the party a little more than usual.
But while himself remaining, he gave instructions for the departure of the princess and Dessalles with the little prince to Bogucharovo and thence to Moscow.
I suppose they're both a little artificial.
He had indicated enough times that he would like to see her in something a little more feminine and fashionable.
It was going to be nice having nothing to do but enjoy their little family for the next two weeks.
But you need to pamper yourself a little.
How much had he told Señor Medena - or how little?
"A little," she said.
They mingled with the guests a little longer and then Carmen excused herself.
The way he acted tonight was a little too much like he did when he came home from the hospital.
Alex instantly provided a little white bag and she made use of it.
Alex sat up and leaned over her, speaking softy in a voice that was little more than a whisper.
"Lust," she repeated a little louder, and then said it firmly once more.
We're probably all a little hypocritical at times - and we're all sinners, so I hear.
Sit down and I'll fill you in a little.
Are you blaming a little boy for what his mother did?
She was getting a little dehydrated, so they were speeding up the IV.
His little tongue shook with the intensity of his frustrated wail.
Natalie needed little encouragement - or maybe it was because Carmen was a little more relaxed and experienced.
The little girl was adorable in a Shirley Temple kind of way.
Little Tammy was so shy and inquisitive.
Maybe Sarah or Giddon would take her to the little country store where the dirt road joined the highway.
And yet, its little engine hummed along with a surprising lack of noise.
A little further ahead, they glimpsed a white flash of tail as a deer bounded crossed the trail no more than fifty feet ahead of them.
After what seemed like hours of traveling down trails that were little more than rockslides, Giddon stopped the ATV and shut off the engine.
Feeling a little better?
Then his face engaged in a smile that created little wrinkles around his eyes and grooves in his cheeks.
It was like Connie to spend as little time on the telephone as possible.
Her make-up, though she used very little, and a couple of bathing suits.
Actually, she knew very little about the man with whom she had promised to spend the summer.
A boss she knew little about.
I'll try not to get in the way, but everyone deserves a little time to themselves.
For the most part, the work she did for the Giddon family was little more than she would have done at home - with the exception that at home she probably would have made a sandwich instead of a meal.
Tammy was well mannered and required little supervision.
Her sandals raised little puffs of dust every time she put a foot down in the soft dirt.
His concern probably had little to do with her safety, though.
He was certainly mysterious, even a little eccentric, but... what did she know about the business?
Sure. We'll be in after a little bit.
So get your filthy little mind out of the gutter.
Are the weeds getting a little high along the drive?
I guess the evening was a little cold?
There was little point in denying her attraction, but he'd best learn to keep his distance.
You're a little spitfire, you know that?
His expression sobered and the blue eyes lost a little of their warmth.
Suit yourself, but personally, I think it would be good for you to get out a little.
She glanced around, a little disoriented.
Maybe a little noise would frighten the animal away.
She put the offending foot on the ground, tentatively applying a little weight, clamping a hand over her mouth to stop the cry of pain.
Even she would have had trouble working with something so little, but his big hands dispensed with the job in short order.
I just turned my ankle a little.
She stayed around the house, propping her foot up whenever she sat down, and by evening it was only a little sore.
Every time he lashes out at you and gets his nails clipped in the process, it erases a little more of that fear.
Yet as the world began to open beyond her little circle, she realized that he had been open about his interest all along.
Well, maybe we both did a little.
She headed for her room and a little rest before supper.
This is a little out of my league.
I think you are a little afraid of me, Lisa.
A little, why don't we go in and I'll make us some coffee?
The smell of coffee brought Yancey back into the room a little later.
A little memory work might be required, but anyone could count from nineteen to twenty.
He glanced at his mother and colored a little.
She finished her breakfast with little conversation and saw Sarah and Tammy off to church.
I kept seeing little Nick's face in the window when they left the house.
And from what – a little kiss?
Well, maybe you should be - a little, anyway.
A little fresh air might clear some of the cobwebs.
She bent over and picked it up, discovering that it had a little white powder in the bottom.
It took little urging to bring his mouth down to hers.
She waited for him to get a little way down the path before she slipped from her hiding place and went to the door.
Where were you a little while ago?
It was hard to believe sweet little Sarah would be involved with anything so sinister.
When he opened the glove box, I was sure he'd come out with a gun, but he had a little tablet instead.
"Yes," he continued "I remember that little tablet.
I looked up Andy Gordon and found lots of pictures of his paintings, but no pictures of him, and very little information about him.
You just have to work at it a little at a time.
She returned his scowl with a little rancor.
Of course, a little make-up and the right clothes could do wonders - which was a good way to wind up straying off the path she had mapped before she left home.
Of course, Brandon was a little old for mama to be fussing over him.
If you want to wait until I get off work, I'll try to leave a little early so we won't get back so late.
Following a long drive that consisted of little more than two ruts worn by vehicle tires, they came to the Marsh ranch.
It isn't like we're little kids, you know.
Let's try a little of this.
Don't you think that was more than a little distracting?
Don't you think it's a little soon?
Still, don't you think we should get to know each other a little better?
"Thanks," he said, giving Rachel a little hug.
I'm asking you to show a little consideration.
The little car pulled out in front of them.
Adrienne screamed again, and then the little car ahead of them was pulling off the road.
Give her a little time to accept the idea.
They all attended the funeral on Wednesday, and Brandon had little to say to any of them.
A little like heaven.
I don't want to lose this feisty little jewel.
We can get that little place in Tulsa that we talked about.
Not that she was likely to see him again - especially out here in the desert, hundreds of miles from their little Texas ranch.
If we all treated you like one of the guys, wouldn't you be a little disappointed?
Davis, don't you think you're a little old for her?
Bordeaux, this saucy little peach is Cassie Rinehart.
In fact, why not give them a little show?
The railroad was scheduled to reach Ashley soon and there would be no need for freighting goods to the little town.
Feeling a little hurt by his apparent disinterest, she picked up her plate and started cleaning up the camp.
She was confused and a little annoyed by a growing desire for a more serious relationship.
She watched his retreating back and knew there would be little sleep for her tonight.
I've got a little ranch in Texas.
He grinned, the expression creating little lines around his sparkling blue eyes.
She was the one who had become serious - and with little encouragement on his part.
She readied supper, careful to spend as little time in the ring of firelight as possible.
He held her without speaking, probably sensing there was little he could say to make her feel better.
Things were moving a little fast.
With no shade, there was little chance for rest.
We're close enough, and our camp sight will give us a little protection from the coming storm.
Maybe she could get a little rest while they waited.
Little specks flashed before her eyes.
With a little effort she located a canteen.
What a wicked thought to have about the man who had risked his life to protect her - not once, but a number of times in the last few days - and with so little to gain.
She flattened against the rock wall as she heard the horse scramble down into the ravine a little way down from her.
Again, it struck her that she knew little about him.
Their arrival created a stir in the sleepy little town.
She opened the door to find a little Mexican boy holding a package.
She knew little about Bordeaux except that she loved him.
I hope you find this trip a little more comfortable than the last.
She had a little money to buy another place.
You went through all of that just to buy this little ranch?
Little did I know that while you were proposing to me, you were making plans to marry you're little saloon girl.
He wasn't going to give in until she ate a little crow.
He gave that little twisted smile again.
I know, and I guess I was deliberately a little evasive because I wanted you to learn to trust me.
Fighting a band of renegade Indians isn't half as hard as lassoing this little filly.
It does sound a little eccentric, doesn't it?
But aren't you a little concerned about what people will say?
Don't you think he's a little old for me?
The only thing I'm attracted to is his job offer - and the idea of getting out of this gossipy little town.
From now on it would be crawl out of bed and cook, clean and then maybe rest a little.
Come on and I'll show you around a little before I turn in.
They rode through the herd, which paid little attention to their passage.
I'm just a little stiff.
I'll be fine after we rest for a little bit.
Little did he know that she wouldn't have left the ranch if her truck had been available.
She was little more than half-done and already he thought it was too much?
I'm trying to get everything caught up so I can spend a little time with Claudette.
I actually felt a little sorry for her.
Following his gaze, Cynthia saw the little green Ford coming up the drive.
Funny how little things like that could stay in a person's thoughts for hours.
As a matter of fact, the place could use a little sprucing up.
"All the same," he said, "You're entitled to a little free time yourself.
Isn't it a little late to start worrying about that sort of thing?
The last thing I want is a half-dozen little brats running around here tearing things up.
If I had paid more attention to her and spent a little less time out on the range, she might be alive today.
I thought you might have thawed out a little by now.
Does that mean we can't indulge in a little innocent affection now and then?
You said you didn't want any little brats tearing your house up.
Little things like the way you took in that stupid cat.
Cade's tone was a little startled and a lot amused.
His tone sounded a little alarmed, and she glanced up at him.
He was a man who said little, but felt a lot.
Annie was Howie's little sister.
I tried to shush her to little avail.
You even touched it, maybe saw little green men.
A little later I heard Howie shuffling back downstairs.
He was; maybe a little upset.
Martha stopped me upstairs a little later as I was coming out of my room.
There was little interest in another round of Monopoly.
I guess I'd like a little input from you guys, if you don't mind.
There was a little girl of about six or seven playing with a doll on the floor.
What do you think about our little experiment?
"Maybe I should have downed a little booze to relax me," he said as he turned away toward the wall.
Martha rolled her eyes, beginning to share her husband's opinion of our little trial.
"I was back again!" he said as excited as a little leaguer with his first hit."
Oh, you little ones; be careful and don't talk to strangers!
The adults were off someplace and we got a little drunk, I guess.
Up and down the hills, searching and searching but all the little ones are staying inside in this coal-stripped countryside.
I'll try my luck closer to the seashore where the scenery is as fair as the little ones I seek.
On to rural America where the pickings are as fertile as the country side and there's always a trusting little soul willing to help a stranger.
Little conversation took place as each of us kept our thoughts to ourselves.
Peabody was two hundred and thirty miles and we arrived at our destination a little after eleven on Friday night, after nearly six hours of steady traffic.
I drive the country roads, humming my tune, my new little pet safely in my hands.
No need to cry on such a pretty day, little one.
It's utterly delightful with all the little school children scurrying about.
Sometimes he has trouble sleeping and it takes very little noise to wake him.
There was little sound from the kitchen as well.
First I must lay my little darling to rest.
Our little group anguished over our decision once we were back together, alternating between chastising and applauding what we'd done.
I want to help before it's too late, like with the little boy.
You didn't just save little Timothy, Howie.
Now there is one less hunter to compete with me for the precious little ones.
I choose the graves of my little ones far more carefully.
Everyone tried a little conciliation.
Howie offered little and without seeing his facial reaction, I couldn't tell how he stood.
Finally, Howie was able to connect with a recently abducted little girl in Alabama.
We'd spent little quality time together.
We conveyed the meager information to a national tip line, fearing it might be too little too late.
I've chosen the sea shore as the final resting place for my little beauty.
I'm on the road once more with only my memory of sweet little Marcia for company.
I can't concentrate on my little darlings.
She's such a little beauty I can hardly wait for the sun to set.
We accomplished little the rest of the day.
Forget this little exercise ever happened; it won't be repeated.
Little Eric lives with me and is the most important part of my life.
Where can I find you, my next little friend?
My little passenger screamed from the back trunk at the sound of the gun shots but he was already dead.
I'd never drive with my own plates when I'm on the prowl for little people.
Do nothing for the time being but perhaps consider instituting a little misdirection in the future.
I eyed a sporty little number but Betsy, with a family in her radar, opted for a mid-sized compact.
The new canine member of our family was a happy little feller with a fair dose of Cocker Spaniel in his genealogy.
Fortunately the day presented little of our precise criteria.
No sound disturbed Howie and with Martha able to use her special hypnotic-like tone, little time was wasted inducing Howie's sleep state.
Days without refreshing little company to pass the dreary miles.
But first I need company and the affection of a sweet little friend.
If you're concerned my little project might impact your security, don't be alarmed.
She's such a little fraidy cat but I shan't be able to keep her much longer.
Once inside, he found the child sleeping alone in her room; a little princess, he called her.
The man pulled up his mask enough for Howie to see a mustache and glasses but little else.
This time, my sweet little friend will assist me!
We deserve a little privacy, especially Howie; he's under the most pressure.
We had little choice but to wait and see if the weekend presented any answers.
You're being a good little girl.
If you tell me every little thing you know or even suspect, I'll just drive away and let you walk down the lane to one of those farm houses we passed.
Curious and maybe a little frightened.
Debbie Woolrich, age nine, remains in the wind but there's little hope she's alive.
That's how long my little prize remained with me until my darling succumbed to the trials and tribulations of life on the road, with me.
I enjoyed it last September until I became bored; I even had a little friend, as I recall.
My security system is top notch though I've had little need to utilize it.
It's a shame I don't have a little princess to lay to rest along its pristine shore.
A little golf, but that just frustrates me and cost money.
I volunteered to mind the store, so to speak, at least for appearance's sake though there was little to do.
I surely deserve the comfort of a little friend to sooth my troubled mind.
I'll miss her so as she missed her mother whom I was forced to lay to rest before the little lovely was mine.
She's a whoring little gold digger!
She'll love it, with little Claire to play with.
I almost plucked a little beauty from a nearby tent the other night as her parents partied with other campers several yards away.
While Molly was her usual quiet self, and perhaps a little nervous, it was obvious she was excited.
She stood over me, giving me little choice though I dreaded the chore.
I don't know what I mean except I can't stop dreaming of little children, all hurt and bleeding and I don't want to see them because it hurts too much, but I can't block them out!
"Looking for a little action?" my wife said.
When it happens, it matters little which was the cause.
I had little doubt Quinn would tell Howie, disrupting his tenuous relationship with Julie.
Over their shoulder I saw Martha leave, with little Claire in her arms.
It's all a little scary but I helped by getting Howie to go to sleep.
I'll do a little prowling around to sort out the players before I strike.
Not a worry in the world but a little white ball.
She doesn't have to speak; just give you a little security.
Last night we ran a session on the little boy Betsy texted us about.
I just want to sit here a little while.
And remember those three little numbers; 911.
Their house was lonely, and a little scary without them.
I can't imagine not seeing her or holding little Claire again.
I answered with all the right words though I was not just a little annoyed.
I think you and I need to have a little sit-down.
There was a fender bender in the town square that delayed me but I wasted little time racing up the Surry road.
The fascination little visitors were a rare in our neck of the woods.
For everything... for how I handled the police-guy, for making Julie stay just a little bit longer, for chasing off Martha and Quinn...
Maybe he's grown up and changed; God knows I have but back in the day, he was a little piss head, always getting in fights, picking on little kids.
A little north of there, up the coast.
You see, guys who just hunted down women looked down on the children snatchers and the scum that took on little girls thought they were a rank better than the little boy snatchers.
Dropping off this little package was accomplished with no regret as she wouldn't cease screaming her head off keeping my nerves on edge the entire time we were together.
We can spare a little time in Santa Barbara.
I'm a little tired of making other people's decisions for them.
There is on one to connect me to New Hampshire though this little group who thought they were so clever hiding in that silly business in Keene might suspect that the one they hunted is now hunting them!
I managed to calm myself enough to relate what little I knew of what happened to the people with whom we'd both worked so closely.
Now let's try and locate your wife and the little girl.
A little while and we'll be where no one will find us as we play our games.
As I parked in my barn, the beautiful little girl I've dreamt about began to squirm and awaken.
I told her when I returned from my preparations in the cabin I'd better find my little angle quiet or she could watch her mother die before her eyes.
He was a little while ago.
Little was said of our clandestine activities of the past year as we simply enjoyed each other's company.
I did a little arithmetic.
But I'm too little to save Jonny.
The Watcher's hand fell away, and his gaze went to the dark side of the bay, where the little girl was already fast asleep.
Her unease grew as they reached a seedy neighborhood outside of Little Havana.
"It's yours," Dusty said, somewhat relieved to have a little more help.
She took the keys a little too quickly.
Still feel a little tired.
You could try a little more not to scare me so much.
He's a little confused.
A little too late now.
A little rough out there?
He had little pity for humanity in general.
He felt sick to his stomach and wondered how Bianca had become so much a part of him in so little time.
"Trinka," he said, kneeling in front of his little sister.
"You brought me here to lecture me, little one?" he asked with gentle gruffness.
She's discovered quite a few annoying little powers of her own while you were gone.
A little harder in Ohio.
Jule was happy to piss off the little green-eyed troll.
It's a dare, my little friend.
We're gonna have a little talk, then we'll see who gets to kill who.
She walked the length of the wing and felt the feeling fade a little.
But this man, an enemy who had—up until now—wanted to kill her, left her feeling a little less alone.
"It's our little secret," he said.
"My own little mini-Watcher," Damian said, holding out his hand to her.
You're absorbing what little power I have.
They meant little to her, but to Damian, they could mean something.
That little girl did this?
A vamp who could track Others was an invaluable treasure, especially if Charles could also track the sneaky little Watchers.
I hate those little trolls.
I think I'll stay out for a little while.
Jenn thought little of it at the time.
"This little thing beat you up?" the man with the chiseled features asked.
"Cody, watch where you're going!" a mother scolded the little boy sprawled on the floor.
She froze at the sight straight out of her vision—the little boy, Cody, spread-eagled in the street near the storm drain.
Only his undercover agents contained such little information in his database.
Can you expand a little on that statement?
She's uh, a little bit asleep.
She tightened her grip around him, and he was amused to think of himself as any sort of comfort to anyone, let alone a little human like her.
It's not every day your little brother turns 300K.
He opened the windows, which did little to shed light into the stone room with its masculine, black décor.
The images in her mind were of a little boy dying in the street, of Jake's death, of the deaths of many others.
She's this sexy little thing with beautiful eyes.
This might hurt a little.
"What are you, little friend?" she murmured.
From what little she knew about etiquette, she was occupying the seat of the lady of the house.
"You jealous little bi—" Before she knew what she did, she'd closed the distance between them and slapped him hard.
Oh, ye of little faith, he said into her mind.
A little testy today, aren't we?
It's the little things that count.
Would it be as strong as hers had been to Gabriel, where she'd ached for him to touch her, no matter how little sense it made?
More like a little fruit bat.
Just her little fangs and the odd presence she found subtle but which apparently had a staggering effect on men.
"Sexy little thing, isn't she?" he murmured.
Can I have a little fun first?
"Even has a sexy little purr," Kin said, lust crossing his features.
"A little birdie in my spy network fills me in on shit going on down there from time-to-time," he started.
I think you do a little.
I did what little I could to assuage my guilt.
What if the silly, innocent, clueless little girl you spent years lying to actually had something that you need to leave here?
