"Pierre, if you let her do that again, you'll go straight to behavior modification," he warned her assigned bodyguard.
"I swear I'll stop her even if it costs me my life," Pierre replied.
"How far along is she, Pierre?" he asked.
Don't you dare, Pierre!
"Five-- " "Nine weeks," Pierre grated.
"She's saving it for when she gets in trouble again with ikir," Pierre supplied.
"Boss, you can send her to behavior modification training," Pierre suggested.
If she leaves, then Pierre tells Dusty, and we all get yelled at.
"I'm keeping him safe from the women, ikir," Pierre, Sofi's bodyguard, added.
Pierre was unfazed by his raised voice and continued playing a game on his phone.
Bianca coughed to cover her laugh, and Pierre seconded the vamp with a quiet amen.
This is Sofi and her bodyguard, Pierre.
"Welcome," Pierre called from the other side of the library.
You're on your own, Pierre replied.
Pierre gave him a sidelong look at his butchered French, and Sofia smiled despite herself.
Grande and Pierre are joining us from our European front.
Pierre punched him in the shoulder, and they walked toward the garage.
Dressed for sparring, he waited with Grande and Pierre for Damian.
She tentatively touched Pierre's outstretched arm.
"Pierre for the kill," Grande said, handing Han one from the wad of dollars in his hand.
Grande exclaimed as Pierre's opponent went down.
Pierre called to her.
She can't eat food, but she refuses to admit it to herself, Han explained to Pierre.
Pierre asked with a frown.
Pierre's look turned from disappointed to approving.
A short time later, she sagged against the toilet, ignoring Pierre as he tsked and held her hair.
She motioned for Pierre to close the door so she could clean up.
Pierre recommended I see you.
Pierre, you can sleep with whomever you want, really.
"Claire," Pierre said, stooping to kiss her cheek.
Pierre will defend you well.
"Babysitter," Pierre corrected her.
"If you must be with a man, it's good that he's French," Claire said with a wink at Pierre.
Pierre obeyed and closed the doors behind him.
Pierre had brought in a dress box and shoe box earlier.
Pierre greeted her with an approving smile that buoyed her.
Even he does not wear it, Pierre said and motioned her to follow him towards the party below.
Dustin escorted the man into the mansion, and Pierre wrapped an arm around her as she sagged.
Pierre trailed, balancing a plate of food.
She heard Dustin order Pierre out before he approached her.
Pierre remained at the door.
Pierre trotted after her.
Pierre was in front of Sofia's door.
Pierre glanced up from his video game at his hesitation.
Pierre's lip was completely insubordinate, and it was obvious he'd never worked for Dusty.
Damian didn't care; Sofia liked Pierre, and he had a feeling Pierre's blunt dose of reality was soothing to her in a world where nothing else made sense.
Pierre spoke from her doorway, framed against the light of the hall.
Pierre eyed her and crossed to her bathroom, tossing several items into her travel bag.
Sofia took a step back and silently urged Pierre to hurry.
Pierre asked, agitated as he trotted through the gate.
Pierre pounded on the door with the discretion of a jackhammer.
"Pierre," her bodyguard introduced himself, clapping him on the arm.
"This is the Tucson Sector team," Pierre said.
Without Pierre, she'd never set foot in such a dangerous situation.
"Rainy, Ving, Justin, this is Pierre," the surly blond said.
Pierre was at ease among his own kind.
"Damian sent her," Pierre answered.
Pierre motioned her forward, and she went, afraid of what she'd find.
Pierre motioned Sofia aside as the mad rush went through the house to the garage.
"I want to go, Pierre," she said, following.
Pierre crammed himself into the backseat.
"Careful," Pierre warned from nearby.
Pierre drew nearer, and Linda waved her forward again.
Pierre trailed them at a distance just out of earshot, and Linda looked at her curiously.
Pierre, you want my croissant?
You assume we French all eat croissants, Pierre complained.
Pierre, am I allowed to go Christmas shopping?
"No," Pierre said, blocking the library as she approached.
Pierre walked by and snatched Sofia's hotdog.
"Pierre, go please," Sofia said, knowing he'd be there when she turned.
"Pierre, stay," he ordered.
"I'm not going in there," Pierre assured him, earning him another look of disapproval.
Pierre was beyond handsome with his brooding looks, wind-swept blond hair, black clothing, and trench coat.
"I think Pierre was right about that sweater," Linda said as she rejoined them.
Pierre stayed on her heels, guaranteeing her a wide berth.
"That pocket is for knives, not your shit," Pierre snapped as Linda dropped another trinket she'd bought into one of his pockets.
Pierre, what do you think?
Pierre, where are you from anyway?
Pierre's phone rang again.
The three moved with her, Pierre speaking tersely in French on the phone.
He flashed a wide smile at Pierre, who lifted his chin and nudged her forward.
"Pierre doing good by you?" he asked.
"Hey, boss," Pierre said, holding out his hand.
Sofia gave Pierre a harried look, and Jule chuckled.
Jule glanced at Pierre, who obeyed the silent command and moved away.
"I'm going for Frenchie fries," Pierre called.
She looked back to see if Pierre followed.
"You're on my shit list with Damian and Pierre," she said.
It'd been only a week and a half since she ventured into this new world, but she felt strangely exposed without Pierre with her.
I'll wait for Pierre to catch up, she said, joining Traci on the couch.
She'd seen it in Pierre's future.
"Pierre, no!" she shouted, running past Two.
She recognized Pierre's voice.
Pierre said then cursed in French.
Pierre dropped beside her, muttering.
Pierre hauled her up.
Pierre hopped out and helped her and then Darian.
Pierre led them to the empty, well-lit helicopter hangar, where several men crowded around a still body on the hangar floor.
"Two women," Pierre muttered.
"Pierre, get 'em outta here," Jule said with a toss of his head in their direction.
Pierre gripped each of their arms and led them toward two black Tahoes.
She was alone with her thoughts the entire way despite the presence of Pierre and Traci.
Pierre, can I get some privacy?
"Not on purpose," Pierre grated.
Pierre mumbled a few curses.
"Pierre, I want to go home!" she complained.
Pierre grimaced and rose more slowly.
Pierre's phone dinged, and he opened it again.
"If you keep mentioning it, it won't be an accident next time," Pierre retorted, shooting her a look in the rearview mirror.
"Pierre," Sofia said with a serious note.
Pierre dropped them off in front, waiting until they stepped across the entrance before driving off.
He didn't look to be in a mood for questions, so she hurried past him to her room, Pierre trailing.
Steeling herself, she passed Pierre at her door and knocked on Damian's door.
Pierre glanced up from the game he played on his iPhone as she passed him.
I imagine only Pierre is on it now.
Pierre trotted after her into the cold morning.
Pierre, pack your things.
She didn't miss the look of relief that crossed Pierre's face and suspected he'd been threatened with a reassignment for shooting her.
Pierre tossed her a familiar cell phone as they entered the mansion.
Her tall, blond bodyguard, Pierre, stepped closer to her, hand moving to his weapons.
"That, my vamp friend, is what we call a smackdown," Pierre added before following her.
Sofi doubted Pierre would be living if Xander hadn't made a promise.
Pierre closed the door behind her, remaining outside.
"Pierre needs to go," she added.
Sofi, did you recall Pierre from his vacation?
Here she met two men, one of whom indoctrinated her with religious mysticism,- the other with advanced socialism, Lamennais and Pierre Leroux.
She has all the abandon of an Italian improvisatore, the simplicity of a Bernardin de St Pierre without his mawkishness, the sentimentality of a Rousseau without his egotism, the rhythmic eloquence of a Chateaubriand without his grandiloquence.

Pascal and other members of Port Royal openly expressed their doubts about the place allowed to God in the system; the adherents of Gassendi met it by resuscitating atoms; and the Aristotelians maintained their substantial forms as of old; the Jesuits argued against the arguments for the being of God, and against the theory of innate ideas; whilst Pierre Daniel Huet (1630-1721), bishop of Avranches, once a Cartesian himself, made a vigorous onslaught on the contempt in which his former comrades held literature and history, and enlarged on the vanity of all human aspirations after rational truth.
The Port Royalists, Pierre Nicole (1625-1695) and Antoine Arnauld (1612-1694), had applied it to grammar and logic; Jean Domat or Daumat (1625-1696) and Henri Francois Daugesseau (1668-1751) to jurisprudence; Fontenelle, Charles Perrault (1628-1703) and Jean Terrasson (1670-1750) to literary criticism, and a worthier estimate of modern literature.

Between Roberval and Descartes there existed a feeling of ill - will, owing to the jealousy aroused in the mind of the former by the criticism which Descartes offered to some of the methods employed by him and by Pierre de Fermat; and this led him to criticize and oppose the analytical methods which Descartes introduced into geometry about this time.

AILLY, PIERRE D' (1350-1420), French theologian, was born at Compiegne in 1350 of a bourgeois family, and studied in Paris at the celebrated college of Navarre.
The dissatisfaction displayed shortly after by the government obliged the university to give up this scheme, and was probably the cause of Pierre d'Ailly's temporary retirement to Noyon, where he held a canonry.
at Avignon, Pierre d'Ailly was entrusted by the king with a mission of congratulation to the new pontiff.
Pierre d'Ailly himself had not long before taken part in the drawing up of a letter to the king in which the advantages of this double abdication were set forth, but since then his zeal had seemed to cool a little.
Some time afterwards Pierre d'Ailly became bishop of Cambrai (March 1 9, 1 397) by the favour of the pope, who had yielded no whit, and, by virtue of this position, became also a prince of the empire.
Pierre d'Ailly, who, in spite of his attachment to the pope, had been carried away by the example of the kingdom, was among the first who, in 1403, after experience of what had happened, counselled and celebrated the restoration of obedience.
At the ecclesiastical council which took place at Paris in 1406 Pierre d'Ailly made every effort to avert a new withdrawal from the obedience and, by order of the king, took the part of defender of Benedict XIII., a course which yet again exposed him to attacks from the university party.
It was not till after the cardinals of the two colleges had led to the convocation of the general council of Pisa that Pierre d'Ailly renounced the support of Benedict XIII., and, for want of a better policy, again allied himself with the cause which he had championed in his youth.
This was, in fact, the procedure of the council of Pisa, in which Pierre d'Ailly took part.
This pope reigned only ten months; his successor, John XXIII., raised Pierre d'Ailly to the rank of cardinal (June 6, 1411), and further, to indemnify him for the loss of the bishopric of Cambrai, conferred upon him the administration of that of Limoges (November 3, 1412), which was shortly after exchanged for the bishopric of Orange.
He also nominated Pierre d'Ailly as his legate in Germany (March 18, 1413).
From this point of view Pierre d'Ailly, together with his compatriot Cardinal Fillastre, took the preponderating part during the first.
When at last the question arose of giving the Christian world a new pope, this time sole and uncontested, Pierre d'Ailly defended the right of the cardinals, if not to keep the election entirely in their own hands, at any rate to share in the election, and he brought forward an ingenious system for reconciling the pretensions of the council with the rights of the Sacred College.
(November 11, 1417), and the task of Pierre d'Ailly was at last finished.
Pierre d'Ailly's written works are numerous.
Whatever reservations may be made as to a certain interested or ambitious side of his character, Pierre d'Ailly, whose devotion to the cause of union and reform is incontestable, remains one of the leading spirits of the end of the 14th and beginning of the 15th centuries.

In two works of this period, Pierre Bayle (1838) and Philosophie and Christentum (1839), which deal largely with theology, he held that he had proved "that Christianity has in fact long vanished not only from the reason but from the life of mankind, that it is nothing more than a fixed idea" in flagrant contradiction to the distinctive features of contemporary civilization.
2 Meanwhile the study received a great impulse from the appearance, at Zurich in 1555, of the third book of Conrad Gesner's Historia Animalium " qvi est de Auium natura," and at Paris in the same year of Pierre Belon's (Bellonius) Histoire de la nature des Oyseaux.
The festival was, in fact, too popular to succumb to these efforts, and it survived throughout Europe till the Reformation, and even later in France; for in 1645 Mathurin de Neure complains in a letter to Pierre Gassendi of the monstrous fooleries which yearly on Innocents' Day took place in the monastery of the Cordeliers at Antibes.
