She smiled to herself - and not always because he rubbed her the wrong way.
It was the first time she thought of Katie that way.
Did Alex think of her that way?
In a way, Carmen and Alex had adopted a family.
Maybe it was her way of keeping Josh alive.
But then, she hadn't approved of his drinking or the way he treated Lori either.
The balmy weather of Thanksgiving Day had given way to a frosty day after.
In fact, that was a good way to make sure he didn't.
It wouldn't have been so much fun for him if she had reacted the way he did when she told him she was pregnant.
I didn't know you felt that way.
I mean, that they didn't feel this way all the time.
And yet, in a way, waiting this long might have been an advantage.
Señor Medena eyed Carmen thoughtfully, but like Alex, there was no way of knowing what was on his mind.
Felipa didn't seem to notice anything unusual in his attitude, so maybe he had always treated them that way.
It was his way of focusing in - pulling her close without the intimacy of touching.
I think it is so cute the way you two flirt with each other.
Alondra was attractive in a delicate way - her features more refined.
Alex smiled down at him in a reassuring way.
I wish everyone wore rose-colored glasses the way you do.
"I'll lock the door," he said, his lips returning to hers and lingering in a way that made her feel weak.
There was no way to defend her moral objections without seeding doubt in his mind.
The shock of what happened gave way to fury as Felipa turned back to them.
I should have known you would feel this way.
If only Alex could talk to his father that way.
His warm fingers released her shoulders and traced their way up her neck, cupping her jaws in his hands.
"So, shut the door," he said, his voice strained, and drew her into his arms, seeking her lips again in a hungry way.
I knew because he proved to me that I could trust him with my heart and soul - the way you trust your mother and father.
But if you could trust him this way and there was no electricity, would it still be love?
It was the way she wanted it as well.
He does not like the way father treats us - financially.
Since you arrived, she is not sure this is the way.
Or was it the other way around?
Now he was exerting his authority in another way.
I hope not the way they did the last time.
Maybe he felt more comfortable thinking of it that way.
On the way back to the house, Alex offered to take them to the gulf for a family outing.
On the way across the open water, they saw several dolphins.
Then they caressed their way up her side, his thumb sliding under her bra and gently up the curve of her breast.
I didn't realize you felt that way.
We all knew about his family, but the way he acted, it was as if he wanted to hide them from us.
Alondra smiled up at him in a way that suggested their relationship went farther than employment extended.
Focusing on his profile, she willed him to look her way.
Sometimes that's the only way you can reach each other.
Something about the way Felipa was smiling up at him suggested she was anticipating a good night kiss.
His gaze wandered over her face in that familiar way.
That way you don't have to taste it.
The way he acted tonight was a little too much like he did when he came home from the hospital.
His warm lips kissed their way down her neck and across her shoulder.
Well... I guess so, in a way.
By the way, neither Alex nor I drink.
That's unusual, I know, but we both like it that way.
I don't think of it that way.
Are you sure that's the way you want it?
A slow smile worked its way across his face and into his eyes.
She had to stop thinking about the past that way.
Was that the way Morino thought of it?
I want to be that way, Carmen.
It was rude to act this way to hosts who had invited them into their home on such a special occasion.
That was one way Alex had followed her lead.
I guess my life isn't very interesting to other people, but Alex and I like the way we live.
Señor Medena was watching her in a strange way.
Did he arrange to have Alex out of the way, or was he simply taking advantage of the situation?
The way he did it reminded her of Alex.
Actually, it was way too much house as far as she was concerned, but she wasn't buying it.
Señor Medena was watching her again in that strange way, as if it truly mattered what she thought.
Something about the way he was watching her felt uncomfortable.
The patio is this way.
We were on our way back.
That is the way it should be, Mama says.
To her, the idea was ludicrous, and yet, it probably looked that way to Dulce.
Then he turned away and rubbed the back of his neck in that way he did when he knew he was wrong but wasn't sure why.
Aside from his solemn expression, there was nothing in the way he acted with the children that might indicate anything was wrong between them.
If they were truly soul mates, she should be in his corner all the way.
The morning passed in a pleasant way and soon it was time to leave.
Within a few minutes the plane was dipping and rising in a way that made her stomach roll uncomfortably.
She might have lost the baby anyway, but the way he treated her couldn't have helped.
He turned, pausing with the cup of coffee half way to his lips.
I shouldn't have talked to you that way.
One way to do that is to make sure they don't have all the facts.
The way I heard it, Grandma & Grandpa Barret were rolling in money and Dad wasn't up to their standards... financially.
I think that's why Alex feels the way he does about money.
When we were in Texas, I got the feeling that Señor Medena loved Alex - that he was saddened by the way Alex rejected him.
If you mention his name to Alex, you'll find out why she feels that way.
Sometimes, but it's a long way to a restaurant and a lot of hassle to go.
Surely he wouldn't have gone down there to help if he felt that way.
On the other hand, how could Alex be a positive influence if his Uncle truly felt that way?
Still, all the information Katie provided created a clearer picture of why Alex acted the way he did at home.
Carmen could hear her crying all the way down the hall to the elevator.
There was no good way to say it, so she might as well get to the facts.
Help is on the way.
She's on the way.
The nurse would have no way of knowing how uncharacteristic this behavior was for Destiny.
Partly because of the way he worded things, but mostly because he tried to mask his emotions - like Alex.
Another way he was like Alex.
Please don't be this way, Alex.
Sometimes the way Alex looked at him when he was talking - times when he was actually listening to him - it seemed to her that he felt that close bond.
In a way, it was hard to believe it had been that long.
Would she always feel this way about him and everything he touched?
Maybe it was therapeutic for him in some way.
Maybe she was right, and if Alex hadn't been such a perfect husband in every other way, she might have done it.
He had a family to support - and two more children on the way.
Later that night she woke and lay awake thinking about the way he had responded.
There was no point in working herself up this way.
Since everyone knew the way to a man's heart was through his stomach, she started with a special meal.
A warm hand caressed its way up her back and around to cradle her breast.
She gently broke the embrace and stepped away, smiling up at him in an inviting way.
Kissing his chin, she worked her way around to his cheek.
Maybe he felt that way too.
His fingers touched her chin and slid down her throat, exploring their way down to her bodice.
It was the first time they made love any place outside their bedroom, and it was way beyond exciting.
Maybe she wasn't happy with the way her parents lived.
Partly - in a way.
With the initial shock out of the way, she focused on the facts.
It was yet another example of the way their marriage continued to mature.
I guess because the way she acted while we were there.
Then he drew back, his gaze running over her face in that familiar confident way.
I guess the way I've acted... not telling you things - what else could you think?
Don't treat me that way, Alex.
I don't feel that way - ever.
I guess I didn't think about it that way.
His gaze traveled over her face in that familiar way, his expression reflective.
It doesn't matter to me one way or another, but I wish you would at least make an effort at seeing his side of it.
I didn't think I would feel this way.
Maybe we would have felt this way with them if things had been different.
Or when he has a wife to point the way.
The sooner he started, the sooner it would be out of the way.
Carmen was right... about the way I really feel... about... you.
At least that part was out of the way.
Señor Medena was looking at him in a strange way.
Behind it, sixteen cars were jammed together all the way back to the highway.
Officer Lathum met him half way to the car and lifted a bushy gray brow.
I dated her a few times, but she was way out of my league.
Even the way she wore her hair, with those braids wrapped around the top of her head like a crown and the long shiny blond curls falling around her shoulders and down her back – she wasn't simply beautiful.
Her knees finally gave way and she dropped into the chair.
Lisa stared at the bowl, the liquid frozen half way up her throat.
Gradually the numbness gave way to pain.
I hadn't thought of it that way.
The front end was slowly sinking down as the ground gave way.
Her knees were trembling as if they were going to give way at any moment, and her face felt devoid of blood.
The rain got it started and then the edge of the cliff gave way.
He would probably know the fastest way.
Is there any way down?
It's a long way to drive from Fayetteville, and then they'd have to bring you back in the morning.
The little girl was adorable in a Shirley Temple kind of way.
Her stomach lurched again as she thought about the way the car had stopped.
If you'll just point the way, I'll be glad to go by myself.
This will take us most of the way.
It was always exciting in an alarming way.
"There's enough rock here to build a housing development," she commented as they worked their way across a jumble of flat red rocks.
I planned it that way.
It could be a way to get her to put it down.
Chancing a glance at his face, she found him watching her in a strange way.
"This way," he said, and then took off with long strides.
By now she was so turned around that she couldn't have found her way to the ATV, much less the road.
How could he take advantage of her that way?
He stepped around her and remained silent all the way to the ATV.
Were his comments genuine, or simply a way to get her to like him?
We'd better go in the back way or Mom will have my hide.
She hesitated, wanting to find a way home, but not wanting to ask any more favors of him.
There was another way, but after what had happened today, she was reluctant to bring it up.
All the way to Fayetteville?
I promise to drop in and see you the very next time I'm up this way.
No. I guess I'd be upset, too, if someone barged into my life that way.
Maybe there was a way out of this yet.
I'll try not to get in the way, but everyone deserves a little time to themselves.
It even found its way into her writing.
There was only one way to find out... well, maybe two, but asking Sarah or Giddon was probably wasted effort.
She would have a sore neck if she stayed that way for long.
His bloodshot gaze wandered over her figure in a way that made her regret leaving her beach robe in the house.
If you feel that way, why did you come all the way out here to see me?
Surely you have time off as well, otherwise, how would you have time to come all the way out here.
"Exactly," Lisa answered crisply and brushed by him on her way to the house.
Why had he come to this house, and how did he know the way?
It wasn't as if she had any part in becoming that way, nor did it make her a better person.
He grabbed her shoulders, pulling her roughly against him and kissed her lips in a demanding way that roused more anger than anything else.
He couldn't win the argument any other way, so he had resorted to his irresistible charm.
About thirty minutes later it would return and leave the way it had come.
Giddon went back into the building and Lisa made her way through the darkening woods to the spot in the drive where she had entered.
The masculine smell of him, the way his big hands caressed her cheek so softly... hands without calluses.
If Giddon was involved in a drug ring, Tammy needed a way out.
The ground gave way under her foot, and with a sickening lurch of her heart, she plunged downward.
Unhurt, she would have no fear of wandering around to find her way, but her injury prevented any exploration.
"You can't carry me all the way to the house," She said, clinging to his neck.
After having her wiggle her toes and move her ankle this way and that, he finally stepped back and observed her with a frown.
He had offered her a perfect way out.
She could feel it in his soft kisses on her neck, in the way he whispered her name.
When she didn't get her way, she'd cry and act like she was afraid of him.
If Sarah suspected that she already knew what was going on and looked the other way, why not welcome her into the family?
"Lead the way, Romeo," she said dryly.
I'll tell you on the way.
On the way to town, she told Len about the car and how she had come to meet the Giddon family.
He had offered to help in any way possible and she had found a way.
In the truck, on the way home, she was silent a long time.
But I don't like the way I've been treating you.
I don't know what I was thinking of, taking advantage of you that way.
He has a way of looking at you...
As she brushed by him on her way to her room to dress, she asked over her shoulder.
At the car, he opened the door for her in a gentlemanly way.
So what made you smile that way?
By the way, happy birthday.
I'm sorry I acted that way.
I never meant to make you feel that way.
I guess when you put it that way...
When you start seeing Nick... that way, try to replace it with a warm family moment.
It's a long way down.
He never looked directly at her, but the way he held back branches was indication enough that he knew she was there and was thinking of her.
One way or another, she had to get into that building.
Yancey got up the next morning in a fowl mood and stayed that way for several days.
The blue ice melted with warmth and a slow smile twisted his lips in an attractive way.
She darted around him and ran for the door, but he caught her half way.
He was watching her in a strange way.
It was something she hadn't thought of in that way.
It was intended as a short kiss, but it didn't work out that way.
Thank you for driving all that way to make sure I was safe.
I like the way you say thank you.
Whether he had arranged things to work out this way or not, her resources had been cut seriously.
He liked things the way they were.
It was a total mystery to her why Len and Howard couldn't light a fire in her the way Yancey did.
"I'll do things in my own good time and in my own way," he responded in a gruff voice.
She waited for him to get a little way down the path before she slipped from her hiding place and went to the door.
She glanced around the dimly lit room, desperately searching for a way out.
The window was barely large enough for her to pass through, but she might be able to get out that way.
Glancing around to see if Yancey was gone, she spotted him disappearing around the bend, on his way to the house.
There was no way to lock the screen, so she simply pushed it shut and started for the house.
He knew she was not in the chair, but he had no way of knowing she had been to the building.
We're on the way to get my car.
The man told him he needed to get rid of me and Yancey told him he'd deal with me in his own way.
I've never seen him this way before.
I'm going to head out that way.
Alright. We'll do it your way... but be careful.
I don't know what came over me to act that way.
Hopefully the fact that help was on the way would make him reconsider any violent action.
They wanted her out of the way, or at least silent.
Yancey glanced that way and then back at her.
The way it worked out, I had a sitter, mom had help and Tammy had a companion.
Each of them had contributed in some way to that relationship.
There is something about the way she looks at you when she needs your help – so vulnerable.
I can tell by the way he looks at you.
Oh, I don't mean that in a sexual way.
Look at the way he's built.
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.
That was the only way to make it through college.
She glanced up at him, a fork full of eggs half way to her mouth.
Maybe accepting a date would be the perfect way to end this one-sided relationship.
Every once in a while, things turn out the way you hope that they will.
This was one way to kill two birds with one stone.
Something in his innocent boyish smile and the way he moved - so deliberate, even graceful.
A relationship would only get in the way.
I wonder if you'd still feel that way if your child was sick in the hospital.
I might meet some tall, dark, handsome man on the way, and you'd chase him off.
