Though there is less than half an inch between the points--a space which represents sixty minutes--Miss Keller tells the time almost exactly.
I only spoke a few words, as I did not know I was expected to speak until a few minutes before I was called upon.
In that case I correct only such mistakes as I can recall in the few minutes allowed, and make notes of these corrections at the end of my paper.
Fifteen minutes until twelve.
This came in by currier a few minutes ago, sir.
She began to work delightedly and finished the card in a few minutes, and did it very neatly indeed.
She came tearing upstairs a few minutes ago in a state of great excitement.
In a few minutes she yielded and finished her breakfast peaceably.
A few minutes after they left, Felipa arrived with an older woman she introduced simply as Maria.
A few minutes later the nurse came in.
He worked quietly for a few minutes and then finally turned his attention to Carmen.
Only a few minutes ago she had flaunted death.
He said no, it would not be called for about fifteen minutes; so we sat down to wait; but in a moment the man came back and asked Teacher if we would like to go to the train at once.
But Johnson, and "The Plague" and everything else must wait a few minutes this afternoon, while I say, thank you, my dear Mrs. Hutton....
She returned in a few minutes and helped me put away my things.
After a few minutes she came back to her place and began to eat her breakfast with her fingers.
This lasted for several minutes; then this mood passed, and Nancy was thrown ruthlessly on the floor and pushed to one side, while a large, pink-cheeked, fuzzy-haired member of the family received the little mother's undivided attention.
A few minutes afterward she felt of her little sister's head and said to her mother, "Mildred's head is small and hard."
She pondered a few minutes and then smiled.
Within a few minutes Fritz and Davis also joined them.
The roast will be ready in about 15 minutes.
Felipa stared at the wall, deep in thought for a few minutes.
They talked for a few minutes and then Carmen left to take Destiny to their room.
Felipa left the room five minutes before Tessa left.
Supper will be ready in ten minutes.
You said ten minutes.
A few minutes later they came in and got Destiny to take her for more x-rays.
The doctor will be in to talk to you in a few minutes.
Minutes later when the nurse arrived with a syringe of medicine, Destiny was asleep again, still clutching the doll to her chest.
I'll be home in a few minutes.
Loading it quickly, he watched the skunk from the house for a few minutes.

It may take a few minutes, but he'll catch on.
A few minutes later Señor Medena answered the phone.
They sipped their coffee in silence for a few minutes and then Señor Medena spoke.
It was a moment that lay in her stomach like a week-long hunger, regardless of the fact that they had been gone only minutes.
It happened about twenty minutes ago.
After studying the car thoughtfully for a few minutes, he confidently assumed authority.
It was a sobering reminder that a bear had been on this spot – possibly only minutes earlier.
It took them another thirty minutes or so to find the burned out shell of the car.
I'll be over there in a few minutes so you can show me what needs to be taken care of while you're gone.
A few minutes later he walked down the hallway.
There she lay stunned for a few minutes.
I'll be done in just a few minutes.
It was a few minutes before she became aware that Yancey was watching her.
Her attention was diverted a few minutes later when Yancey arrived.
A few minutes later the television was on one of Tammy's shows.
Outside, she stood on the porch a few minutes, studying the mountains around them.
For a few minutes she thought her windpipe was crushed.
It was several more minutes before she was able to take deep breaths – even longer before she was able to utter more than a strangled sound.
I came in a few minutes later and she told me.
I just got the message a few minutes ago.
I don't know – maybe thirty minutes ago.
After a few minutes, he reached over to change it.
If she hadn't been there in his arms only minutes ago, she never would have guessed he had been so aroused.
Will you two hold it down for a few minutes?
Thirty minutes later, they emerged from the room.
Rachel was quiet for a few minutes.
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.
She watched them talk for a few minutes.
He listened intently for a few minutes.
She heard him stretch out on the ground and within minutes his breathing changed.
A few minutes later another horse came by, its hooves clattering loudly above them.
When the last horse had been gone for a few minutes, he stood.
They took their time, squatting on the dusty ground, letting minutes pass between bits of conversation.
After what seemed like hours, but probably wasn't more than thirty minutes in the hot sun, Bordeaux stood.
The two men talked for a few minutes and then one rider turned his bay horse toward the wagons.
Darcie leaned back in the seat and watched Cassie reflectively for a few minutes.
Still, he had been with Darcey only minutes before.
On the positive side, at that rate their conversation should be over by five minutes after nine.
What kind of snack could she whip up in fifteen minutes?
Why don't you rest here a few minutes and I'll do the serving for once.
I'll be back in a few minutes.
A few minutes later Cade popped his head around the door.
The clock ticked away the minutes and she finally sat up and squinted at it - four-thirty.
Giving him a few minutes to traverse the drive, she got up and went into the kitchen.
I'll come down in a few minutes.
In the next few minutes she had reason to believe that wasn't his only cause for concern.
He returned to the kitchen after a few minutes in dry clothes, his hair freshly combed.
A few minutes wouldn't hurt, and then he would be sound asleep.
A few more minutes - let him get completely relaxed.
They rode in silence for a few minutes and finally he looked up.
Several minutes stretched into ten or more with neither of us closing our eyes.
Maybe it was the near-inaudible buzz or the rain on the roof, or my imagination, by I actually napped, for about twenty minutes.
I lay there several minutes after I awoke and thought about what Howie experienced.
"Three minutes," he yelled.
I had recorded twenty-one minutes.
If Howie drops into ten or twenty minutes of anyone's life, chance are all he sees is them picking their nose, reading a book or working.
Howie was quiet for several minutes as we finished our chores.
I waited ten minutes before leaving the room.
A few minutes later, I spotted Howie and Betsy in a hushed conversation.
I detected his rhythmic breathing within minutes.
I took careful note of the time and movements, all of which lasted twenty-one minutes.
In six minutes he was up and awake, looking confused.
Once again, it was an unproductive test, nine minutes in total.
A car horn outside woke him in less than five minutes.
He's never out more than ten to twenty minutes at a time and three or four sessions make a heavy day.
Remember, he only has a few minutes in his dream.
We would perform this chore one after the other for a total of perhaps fifteen minutes.
It took him only a few minutes in between each pronouncement to locate us.
The entire session lasted barely ten minutes before he awoke a smile on his face.
It took fifty minutes before the door burst open and Howie dashed out and up the stairs with Martha close on his heels.
"Move the tape ahead, about five or ten minutes," Howie pleaded.
Thirty minutes later, the two emerged from the room, all smiles.
He waited in the dark nearly twenty minutes before hearing an automobile approach.
Howie had difficulty locating the apartment and nothing untoward occurred before he was awoken by the sound of a horn, seventeen minutes later.
Howie continued to be limited to about fifteen minutes or less each time.
I spent forty minutes alone with the director and related all the situations where your uncanny tips were involved.
Howie's record was thirty-four minutes but he felt he could extend this if needed.
Once Howie was under, he broke a record for duration; one hour and eighteen minutes.
We yacked the usual inanities for a few minutes until Howie excused himself to use the bathroom.
The tip covers only a few minutes, like she has to leave quickly, even though there must be more to be learned if she stayed.
It took me thirty minutes to convey everything that was happening.
We stayed that way for several minutes until she pulled back.
I spoke to her alone for twenty minutes.
So when Betsy arrived ten minutes later, there was room for sleeping without utilizing the living room sofa.
Ten minutes later I heard a telephone ringing downstairs.
"Maybe twenty minutes," she said.
I needed twenty minutes to bring the retired detective up to date.
Think about it a couple of minutes.
When I dialed, it went to voice mail, but he returned my call in a matter of minutes.
In the distance and getting closer I heard the sound of police sirens and in minutes two cruisers pulled into the driveway.
I passed out for a few minutes, I guess, and then I thought I was alone so I started crawling toward the door.
I have spent several long minutes creeping about in silence.
It took me several minutes to respond.
I should be leaving for the police station in a few minutes.
It might make me a few minutes late meeting with Jackson but all the more time for Brennan to speak with him first.
After ten minutes of pushing back branches, I spotted the back of a pop up trailer.
The two spoke for only a few minutes, in the privacy of the kitchen.
After that introduction, my wife listened; for more than five minutes, while Howie apparently continued to ramble.
She doesn't realize her time on this earth is ebbing to a close, perhaps only minutes from now after she answers my questions.
After twenty minutes into the session, I became concerned we were nearing his maximum.
Another ten minutes passed before I was him again.
The ride took about forty minutes and as we arrived, two patrol cars were pulling away from the scene.
We caught up to accident in six or seven minutes.
If I'm not back in twenty minutes, go someplace safe and call the police, okay? she said, placing it on the dashboard.
In all of thirty minutes, some sort of drama would emerge once the inhabitants awoke.
"It's been going off for five minutes," Bianca said.
Give me five minutes.
He returned after a few minutes and sat across from her.
Jenn returned after a few minutes, her gaze softening.
He messed with it for a few minutes then reassembled it and placed it on the table.
Jenn, start intel feeds every thirty minutes starting now.
A few minutes later, she sat in the living room, granola bar clenched between her teeth while she tied her shoes.
"Jimmy, throw everything you've got at the target in thirty minutes," he said into the intercom.
You've got twenty-seven minutes to get out of here before Jimmy levels this place.
You've got about two minutes before this creature tears through me and kills you.
He accepted the bowl of soup and sipped in silence for a few minutes.
The day dawned cloudy and cold with a light rain that chilled her after ten minutes.
"I need your man for a few minutes," Damian said.
"You have five minutes to leave my cube, or I'll bite your neck!" she retorted.
He returned a few minutes later and rustled her blanket, setting a cup beside her.
A few minutes later, Jake returned with a jug of water, appearing less than excited.
Five minutes later, it returned, scorching her throat on the way out.
Linda texted back and forth with her husband for a few minutes.
In a few minutes, they were strolling through the mall once more.
She walked for ten minutes, carefully remembering where she went, so she was able to find her way back.
"I'm due back in two minutes," Deidre voiced.
Five minutes after you left, he called off the attacks.
Deidre made it to the library a few minutes later.
A female voice he didn't recognize—but definitely not Larkin's—told him the sheriff would be available in thirty minutes.
Pumpkin Green returned while Dean was killing the few minutes before he left.
When she finished, still attired in bathrobe and floppy slippers, and leaving a cloud of flour behind her, she crept upstairs to talk to Fred; a conversation that lasted thirty minutes.
They began the arduous climb, puffing in the high elevation for ten minutes until the trail leveled and opened to their left.
They brushed the mud from their clothes and sat for enough minutes to regain their composure.
Driving was out of the question as the mid-morning parade, scheduled to begin in a few minutes, was forming on Main Street, which was now closed to traffic.
Finally, after ten minutes of silence passed, they heard the sound of feet running down the slope on the other side of the rise above them.
While the crow-flies distance across the gaping gorge was only a half-mile, Dean was at least twenty minutes away in driving time.
Ten minutes later, Lydia Larkin answered her door dressed in very tight and very small white shorts with a red elastic thing that covered only her breasts and nothing of the acres of skin in the middle.
She set her jaw and said nothing for several minutes.
About ten minutes later, he spotted it again and followed.
He called Lydia's name but it was several minutes before he heard steps, and more time before the door was opened.
He'll be back in twenty minutes or so.
Finally things calmed down enough to give Dean and his wife a few minutes of free time.
When pressed, they opined only that Brandon Westlake acted more suicidal than threatening but they had been with him for several minutes where Lydia had just arrived.
Ten minutes later, she sat at a picnic table, devouring the crispy-sweet treats.
"Fifty four dead demons, three hundred dead mortals," Landon reported after a few minutes.
He gave her five minutes then started up the stairs.
"I'll determine who's at risk in about five minutes," Gabriel said firmly, eyes going to the waiting death dealers.
"Five souls a minute times how many minutes in the past six months …" Gabriel shook his head.
Five minutes, half-breed!
Destiny had finally reached the point that she would tolerate being held by Lori, but after a few minutes she was ready to get down or go to Alex, Carmen or Jonathan.
A few minutes later he returned.
Carmen lay still for a few minutes, soaking up the body heat from Alex.
She drove straight home, but still arrived at the house only minutes ahead of him.
In only about five or ten minutes, the mare was groaning and lying on her side, pushing hard.
It seemed like a long time, but was probably no longer than fifteen minutes before the mare lunged to her feet, snapping the cord.
Carmen studied the foal for a few minutes.
The next few minutes happened so fast that she barely had time to think, much less react.
Within minutes a truck plunged down the hill and into the yard, stopping in a spray of gravel in front of the house.
Not more than a few minutes could have elapsed, and yet there he lay – possibly dying.
We'll be taking him to ICU in a few minutes and it will be awhile before we know anything.
A nurse will take you in to see him for a few minutes.
The nurse arrived after a few minutes and led her in to see Alex.
An ambulance screamed by a few minutes later.
She was gone for only a few minutes and then returned.
He was only awake a few minutes and then fell asleep again.
She continued to work at the other bed for a few minutes and then stopped, turning to Carmen.
At any rate, he was only awake for about 30 minutes.
His father visited for a few more minutes before saying goodbye and leaving.
After he had been gone for a few minutes, Carmen dragged a chair up close to Alex.
Katie listened attentively and then thought it over a few minutes.
For a few minutes there was an uncomfortable silence at the table.
They talked a few more minutes and then ended the call without discussing the stabbing or Lori.
The apartment was quiet when she entered a few minutes later.
She lay there for a few minutes, content.
She cried for a few minutes then forced herself up.
In about five minutes, the big man there is going to wake up.
She'll be out in two minutes, but she should be …manageable when she wakes up.
Gabe waited a few more minutes then forced himself to leave.
Gabe waited a few minutes for the assassin being replaced to appear.
You have five minutes to change.
He dumped the rest in the garbage disposal and turned it on, returning a few minutes later with the other bottles.
The wind was harsher, colder than it was just a few minutes ago.
Kris was for all of five minutes.
"Either we get an emergency five minutes or you figure out how to make it work longer," Kris said.
He carried on a conversation for a few minutes, and she rested her head back, staring at the ceiling.
"Two minutes," he warned.
If you want to wait for a few minutes, I can pull up their itinerary.
His long wings beat the air as he rose, and it took him a short two minutes to soar over the castle.

She waited another few minutes and then headed to the bathrooms.
She trailed it, wanting nothing more than two minutes of relative peace so she could summon a portal.

"Two minutes," Gabriel warned.
A few minutes later, Rhyn went down under Gabriel.s blow, rolled, then bounded up, but not before Darkyn slashed his side.
Several minutes later, Evelyn's footsteps sounded on the wooden stairs.
The emotions behind the scenes were hot and angry before one more scene emerged-- this one lingering for what felt like minutes.
The moment dragged out for quite a few minutes, and still no one gave chase.
The strange sound continued for several minutes, and she trembled, trying hard not to think of what happened if she made it unscathed to the planet's surface.
She rose after a few minutes and stretched.
Jetr listened and spoke, glancing over after a few minutes.
A few minutes later, a group of Qatwali left the room.
She glanced at the door every few minutes, as if her abandoned husband might rush in and drag her back to his lair.
I thought that was TV nonsense until a few minutes later the phone rang and damned if he hadn't done just that!
The two men first boarded chair lift number ten and ten and a half minutes later were eighteen hundred feet higher than Fred and Donnie, at nearly eleven thousand feet elevation.
Just give me a few minutes to finish this page and I'll read it to you.
After a few minutes rest, they continued, first hearing, then seeing the waterfall and the reservoir from which the penstock first drew the water for its mile-long trip to town.
He held her for what seemed like minutes.
The next fifteen minutes were an embarrassed blur as Dean tried to stem his bleeding face at the kitchen table.
Just give me two minutes to digest this piece of charcoal, he said, biting into the blackened toast.
Then five minutes later, some guy calls asking for her, by name!
The conversation droned on for twenty minutes but Dean was never read his rights nor, surprisingly, was the interview recorded.
For the second time in a few minutes, there was a knock on the door.
They're starting on the ice climbers but they're only taking about five minutes with each of 'em. I think Penny is in there now.
Corday talked to Edith for about ten minutes, then skedaddled.
He turned toward the wall and, after what seemed like minutes, heard the bedroom door close.
They stood there together, holding each other, with her head against his chest, saying nothing, for what seemed like minutes.
I'm home five minutes and I'm getting you in trouble already.
It seems to me, that Edith had a very rapid mood change from flaunting her nakedness in front of Claire to...killing herself, practically minutes later.
All would be said and done within fifteen minutes then, but damn, did he not deserve a little fun after being the go-to guy for everyone today?
This is yours if you get those puppies bagged and ready to go in under three minutes.
When Jackson entered the house, he glanced at the antique clock on the mantle: two minutes to six.
After a few minutes, he heard Sarah behind him, though something sounded strange.
He paced around the parking lot for a few minutes cursing the first woman to ever deny him, and then stormed back into the bar, grabbed the red head, forced her to look into his eyes and growled, "You will not scream."
They were quiet for a few minutes.
After about ten minutes, he thought, Maybe she got the hint this morning, and headed upstairs.
A few minutes later Jackson entered.
It took her a few minutes to become accustomed to the gearing, but she was shifting smoothly much quicker than he expected.
Jackson started a fire, stood staring into it for a few minutes then said, "I'm going up, goodnight kids."
Elisabeth pulled into the drive at three minutes to six.
Honey, let's go in the kitchen for a few minutes and not bowl the poor woman over before she gets in the door.
If you have a few more minutes, I'd like to show you my stable.
They sat embraced on the piano bench for a few minutes more, then Jackson kissed her temple.
They sat at a table in the bar, and after a few minutes Sam complained, "What do we have to do to get a drink around here?"
He watched for a few minutes, then undressed and joined her.
Jackson arrived at Elisabeth's a few minutes after 9:00.
But that lasted no more than a few minutes before the doe dropped to the ground and strained with another contraction.
He was silent for a few minutes as they sloshed toward the house.
Alex feigned and then hooked Josh's leg again with the toe of his boot, sending Josh to the floor twice in as many minutes.
A few minutes later she was kicking snow around in the chicken yard until the toe of her boot struck something solid.
The safe thing to do was to tell Katie where she was going, but the few minutes it would take might mean the life of the kid.
In a few minutes the kindling was burning.
Exactly thirty three minutes ago.
Hiding her desire for him seemed a wise thing to do a few minutes ago, but maybe he thought she kissed every man like that.
They spent the next fifteen minutes exploring the inside of the mill, and then they went out to the bridge.
Would it have looked any better if he had come in a few minutes earlier when Alex had his hand under her shirt?
I wasn't here five minutes before you mentioned Josh.
I'll be down in a few minutes.
He still has ten minutes.

I'm going to circle back to see what might be there. Rest for a few minutes.
Rhyn crossed his arms, irritated. Kiki trotted from the patio into the house perched on a hill overlooking Tokyo. He returned ten minutes later with a small briefcase, a jacket and a hard case for his iPad. Rhyn opened the portal, and the two strode through it, back to the massive tree where Rhyn had lost Toby in the cold, wet French Alps.
Gabriel was gone. No one followed him, let alone spoke to him. Rhyn looked around uneasily, wondering who – or what – he'd been speaking to. He started back to the spot where they'd stopped for water. A few minutes later, Gabriel reappeared.
Ully returned a couple of minutes later. He strode to Toby's cell and dangled the talisman before it. Toby's door opened.
The man stopped, thinking he'd heard some movement behind him, but after listening a few minutes could discern no human sound and was satisfied he was alone.
Dean spent a few minutes at his desk finishing up some routine paperwork before telephoning the alleged widow Byrne at 9:15, the earliest time he deemed respectable.
Dean didn't ask, "What stuff?" but instead climbed the stairs to the smaller of the two bedrooms, and in less than ten minutes was asleep.
Ten minutes after four.
The crosstown trip through deserted streets took less than ten minutes.
He assumed Cynthia Byrne was a few minutes late, but when he descended the stairs, there she sat, opposite Fred O'Connor, who was decked out in an elegant blue pinstripe suit complete with pocket handkerchief and bow tie.
After ten minutes he had found 14 cards for March fourth.

They were still early when ten minutes later they located Mrs. Glass's address.
Cece Baldwin was the only person seated at the counter when Dean arrived at the designated shop, only a few minutes before the allotted time.
He watched it for a few minutes and then turned quickly to the right.
They approached the ticket counter with 15 minutes to spare.
The plane was scheduled to leave in 45 minutes but one look at the departure board was indicative of things to come.
Dean became concerned when 20 minutes passed.
Do you want to sit here a few minutes and calm down?
Sure enough, after ten minutes of silent driving on nearly empty streets, he recognized Ocean View Avenue, and a few minutes later, The Ocean Shore Motel.
She asked for a few minutes to call Randy first and Dean took the time to telephone Fred, filling him in on the latest happenings.
A few minutes later Cynthia knocked on the door again.

But all his good intentions and promises went up in smoke minutes later with another phone call.
The service ended in 40 minutes with the priest extending an invitation for friends to return to Mrs. Byrne's home.
I spent 20 minutes on the phone with Mrs. Glass.
Fred was uncommonly quiet and minutes passed before he spoke.
A few minutes later in Uncle Sally's Galley on Butler Street, Fred was hiding behind his menu, embarrassed to be out in public before shaving.
It took two more beers and 30 minutes before a couple of men looking totally out of place in spit-and-polish business suits entered the bar.
They remained in place for 20 minutes, occasionally exchanging a shouted comment, but mostly looking up or down at each other, self-consciously.
"Give us a couple of minutes, will you?" he said angrily.
Aside from a wasted 20 minutes searching for gas in New Brunswick and a missed exit on the Garden State Parkway, the trip was uneventful.
It took less than ten minutes.
In a few minutes, Dean heard the toilet flush and Winston emerged.
Five minutes later Dean was hurrying back to his campsite.
I saw Winston too, ten minutes earlier.
If you can lie on your back for five minutes, he won't be disappointed.

Everything will be ready to eat in about 30 minutes.
She knew exactly where it was, so it shouldn't take more than a few minutes.
Within a few minutes, Alex arrived and whisked her off for a few private hours.
After a few more minutes of eating in silence, he put his sandwich down and turned his attention to her.
He watched her for a few more minutes.
I'll see you in a few minutes.
It seemed like only a few minutes before they were at church, making the last minute checks before she walked down the isle.

A few minutes later they were joined by a girl Carmen hadn't seen since high school.
Their lovemaking lasted only a few minutes before his cell phone rang.
They talked for a few minutes and then all eyes turned to Alex when he came back in the house.
Gerald talked to the twins for a few minutes and then turned to Alex.
Okay, we'll meet you at the barn instead – in about thirty minutes?
It took her less than ten minutes to saddle Ed and ride him out of the corral.
She would be back at the house in another 45 minutes, ahead of the storm and with no one the wiser.
It should be at the house in a few minutes.
A few minutes later he leaned back over the bluff and dropped a bottle of water into Alex's waiting hands.
Within minutes Carmen was surrounded by people cleaning up the mess she had made.
A few minutes later Alex returned without Gerald.
He gazed absently at the wall for a few minutes.
For a few minutes he stared into the cup, absently swirling it around.

If double-bottomed defecators are used in sufficient number to allow an hour and a half to two hours for making each defecation, and if they are of a size which permits any one of them to be filled up by the cane-mill with juice in ten to twelve minutes, they will make as perfect a defecation as is obtainable by any known system; but their employment involves the expenditure of much high-pressure steam (as exhaust steam will not heat the juice quickly enough through the small surface of the hemispherical inner bottom), and also the use of filter presses for treating the scums. A great deal of skilled superintendence is also required, and first cost is comparatively large.
When a sufficient number are not available for a two hours' defecation, it is the practice in some factories to skim off the scums that rise to the top, and then boil up the juice for a few minutes and skim again, and, after repeating the operation once or twice, to run off the juice to separators or subsiders of any of the kinds previously described.

In them the syrup is quickly brought up to the boil and skimmed for about five minutes, when it is run off to the service tanks of the vacuum pans.
