What time are we going to leave tomorrow?
We wouldn't grow under ground, I'm sure.
If we keep cool and moist, and meet with no accidents, we often live for five years.
There were no stairs in their houses, because they did not need them, but on a level surface they generally walked just as we do.
We have some cold days, but mostly it is warm.
I wish we had never come here.
"Come, Edward, we must hurry," said the sister.
"I'm sure we are in no danger," said Dorothy, in a sober voice.
Why should we bother?
"Dad," Jonathan said, "When we get the new baby, where will we put him when we ride in the car?"
I am not saying we live in a utopia.
"We will talk of it later," said Anna Pavlovna with a smile.
If we do not...
I guess my life isn't very interesting to other people, but Alex and I like the way we live.
We commonly do not remember that it is, after all, always the first person that is speaking.
And this man was saying we were going to the moon in a rocket ship made of metals we hadn't even invented.
"Maybe we could get a van," Carmen suggested.
"'Cause we couldn't help it," said Dorothy.
You fell asleep alright, but we didn't get that far.
Why should we expect that to change?
If we have once seen, "the day is ours, and what the day has shown."
We've been married for nearly five years, and we just made love.
At last James Hogg said, "It's of no use; all we can do is to go home and tell the master that we have lost his whole flock."
"Yes, why should we?" said Mr. Speed.
But I guess if we have, it's no worse than having a child out of wedlock.
That's unusual, I know, but we both like it that way.
Inspired, perhaps, by Master Gobbler's success, we carried off to the woodpile a cake which the cook had just frosted, and ate every bit of it.
We have, in fact, envisioned a better world and have made it happen.
When we were fortunate enough to find a nest I never allowed her to carry the eggs home, making her understand by emphatic signs that she might fall and break them.
We should live in all the ages of the world in an hour; ay, in all the worlds of the ages.
When I was about five years old we moved from the little vine-covered house to a large new one.
They have decided that Buonaparte has burnt his boats, and I believe that we are ready to burn ours.
Let's go do the chores one last time before we leave.
"We have plenty of room at the house," Alex stated brusquely.
We must not be late.
I see how human ingenuity and new technologies have eliminated previously insoluble problems once we stand back and let free markets do what they do best: direct the allocation of capital to find a solution.
We lived a long way from any school for the blind or the deaf, and it seemed unlikely that any one would come to such an out-of-the-way place as Tuscumbia to teach a child who was both deaf and blind.
When we arrived in Baltimore, Dr. Chisholm received us kindly: but he could do nothing.
Hippocrates has even left directions how we should cut our nails; that is, even with the ends of the fingers, neither shorter nor longer.
I think that we may safely trust a good deal more than we do.
"Papa, we shall be late," said Princess Helene, turning her beautiful head and looking over her classically molded shoulder as she stood waiting by the door.
We wanted liberty, but Buonaparte has destroyed it.
We will show Europe how Russia rises to the defense of Russia!
Sometimes we have to accept change, if we want to move forward.
So why should we listen to what they call normal?
We also have a couple of wild asses.
We can't - not right now.
We love our parents, siblings and friends.
We both wanted a baby.
No, not too far, but the party is tonight, so we need to stay close.
Well, whatever we do, I'd like to do it as a family.
We just found out.
"We salute your Royal Highness!" cried the Wizard, kneeling and kissing her hand.
Only a fairy country could have veg'table people; and only in a fairy country could Eureka and Jim talk as we do.
Then we will all go down together and Maria can get acquainted with her while you are measured for a dress.
"We had a lot of earthquakes," said Dorothy.
We can stop right here if you want, Carmen.
Why don't we go out for supper tonight - just us and the kids?
If God thought it was wrong, nothing we could have done would have been successful.
Of course, if you prefer, we can wait until you come home from work and make it a fun family event.
Will we see any dolphins, Dad?
Jonathan and I will make sure we fill her in on anything she missed.
Yes, we have many horses.
I guess it's just something different - something we aren't used to yet.
We would not let him get on the horse with Destiny.
We are back to that?
And we saw a baby howse too!
If he does not take the inheritance, we will not have a home.
What are we going to do today, Dad?
We all knew about his family, but the way he acted, it was as if he wanted to hide them from us.
I guess we could say he hasn't been around much.
We could say he has excellent taste.
If he treats me differently than others, I'm sure it's because we are married.
Jonathan would be disappointed if we left before Christmas.
Carmen, remember what you said to me before we married?
On Christmas Eve, we sit in front of the fire and take turns reading Christmas stories.
We pop some popcorn and drink some eggnog - just enjoy each other.
Then, on Christmas morning when everyone is awake, we lounge around in our night clothes while we open presents.
"Yes. Uncle Bill Hugson married your Uncle Henry's wife's sister; so we must be second cousins," said the boy, in an amused tone.
"As for that, we are in the same scrape ourselves," answered Dorothy, cheerfully.
"Of course," growled the horse, "and then we shall be sorry it happened."
We are somewhere in the middle of the earth, and the chances are we'll reach the other side of it before long.
But don't let us worry over such things, Zeb; we can't help ourselves just now, you know, and I've always been told it's foolish to borrow trouble.
But even old Jim has been saying things since we had our accident.
"Perhaps we can walk on the air ourselves," replied the girl.
In this quake a big crack opened and we fell through--horse and buggy, and all--and the stones got loose and came down with us.
"The Rain of Stones has done much damage to our city," he said, "and we shall hold you responsible for it unless you can prove your innocence."
"How can we do that?" asked the girl.
We only know that yesterday came a Rain of Stones upon us, which did much damage and injured some of our people.
We are all vegetable, in this country.
We are quite solid inside our bodies, and have no need to eat, any more than does a potato.
I wonder why it is that we can walk so easily in the air.
"I'm glad we are not fishes!" said another.
Those colored suns are exactly in the same place they were when we came, and if there is no sunset there can be no night.
"How can we go away?" asked Dorothy.
"We shall throw you three people into the Garden of the Twining Vines," said the Princess, "and they will soon crush you and devour your bodies to make themselves grow bigger.
My dears, what shall we do?
But we can't live long in this cavern, that's certain.
"We must be nearly as high as the six colored suns, by this time," said Dorothy.
We were lucky to get away from those dreadful vegetable people.
"It wouldn't be so bad," remarked the Wizard, gazing around him, "if we were obliged to live here always.
We couldn't find a prettier place, I'm sure.
"We can see you," said another of the piglets.
"We'll eat all we can find of them," said another.
How is it that we women don't want anything of the kind, don't need it?
But to judge what is best--conscription or the militia--we can leave to the supreme authority....
In the first place, I tell you we have no right to question the Emperor about that, and secondly, if the Russian nobility had that right, the Emperor could not answer such a question.
"We are," Alex answered curtly.
We saw a baby howse!
"We don't have to prove it," answered Dorothy, indignantly.
"Suppose we pick the Royal Princess," said the Wizard.
Let's pick her while we have the chance, before the man with the star comes back.
"Where shall we stay?" asked the girl.
Some of you, we all know, are poor, find it hard to live, are sometimes, as it were, gasping for breath.
"Papa," said his beautiful daughter in the same tone as before, "we shall be late."
Have we fo'gotten the waising of the militia in the yeah 'seven?
We are Russians and will not grudge our blood in defense of our faith, the throne, and the Fatherland!
"I only said that it would be more to the purpose to make sacrifices when we know what is needed!" said he, trying to be heard above the other voices.
That is the least we can do!
I think he felt included because he was helping as much as we were.
"We will all arise, every one of us will go, for our father the Tsar!" he shouted, rolling his bloodshot eyes.
We've got a meeting at two and it's almost one-thirty now.
We'll take care of them together.
We wouldn't want them to think we were doing anything immoral.
We're going to have a baby, not a sin.
We can only do so much.
We'll have to be careful about that with the new baby.
We'd better get the kids ready.
We're going out for breakfast.
"We'll adjust," she said, and stared down at her plate.
You do realize that if it's a girl, we're going to be unevenly matched.
I know, but... we're guests in this house, and...
We were checking the mare and she bolted, knocking the stable boy down.
We'll know more about her recovery tomorrow.
"We've all been working on the room for the baby," Carmen added.
The kids are asleep and we're alone.
I feel like we're drifting apart here.
We're the guests of honor tonight.
Yes, and we're expecting another.
We've kept in touch.
But I think it's important that we're both aware of what's going on, don't you?
We'd better get ready for lunch.
That's different... and we're wandering off the point.
You all have been so nice to us, and we've enjoyed our stay.
Sometimes Alex comes home for lunch and we eat together.
Sometimes we go out to eat.
That's when we all do things together.
Sometimes Alex and Jonathan play soccer, and sometimes we all go for a ride in the buggy.
How would you feel if I was fighting with my brother and wouldn't tell you what we were fighting about?
Oh, and we were whispering so you knew we were talking, but you didn't know what we were saying.
It's the lessons we learned from the past.
"We failed," she corrected gently.
We didn't fight, we didn't talk.
Whether we want to admit it or not, we all wish everyone would like us.
We accept that they don't, but we still want to feel welcome.
We'd better go down for breakfast.
"I'm sorry we're late," Carmen said.
We didn't mean to keep all of you waiting.
We are all early.
I told Morino last night that I would look at them before we left.
We're leaving tomorrow, aren't we?
"He will not return before we get back," he said quickly.
He says it's only a few miles away and we'll be right back.
We were on our way back.
"I didn't know about any of this until we came down here for a visit," she defended.
She asked "Yeah. We had some late visitors."
We're running into a little turbulence from the storm.
Are we getting close?
But we're married - and have been for a long time.
But I felt it for you before we got married.
We're probably all a little hypocritical at times - and we're all sinners, so I hear.
Are we done talking now?
I thought maybe we could get a van, but I didn't know if we could afford it.
When you went to Columbia, you said we needed the money.
You led me to believe we needed money... and you left me.
I know, we've been all through this before - but I still don't understand.
"I hopped things would be different when we got back home - that we would stop all this bickering," he said crisply.
I think we've both had a lot on our minds lately.
I was thinking about buying a new vehicle and wondered if we had the money, so I looked at his financial information on the computer.
Aunt Paulette, (we all called her Aunt Paulie) married a real estate agent and moved to Arkansas.
When we were in Texas, I got the feeling that Señor Medena loved Alex - that he was saddened by the way Alex rejected him.
Okay, we've already established that Alex is secretive.
We're going to take Destiny to the hospital.
Thanks, I know we can count on you, Katie, but I think she'll be more comfortable staying at our house.
We ate supper and put the rest in the refrigerator for you.
We've got some three foot drifts on the road out here.
Where it is written how we are to make a child?
Show me where we might eat.
He knew exactly what he wanted and I told him we would buy it for him.
If it's something we simply can't afford, that's one thing, but we should be encouraging things like this, Alex.
I don't want you to lose anything, but you know I'd want to be with you even if we didn't have a dime to our name.
I think we already are.
You've been quiet for weeks - since we left Texas.
I guess because the way she acted while we were there.
Why don't we all make another trip to Texas?
We've already established that I'm not an heir.
You have thought much about what we discussed yesterday?
Well, I guess we were making everyone else feel uncomfortable.
We actually have four children now.
We didn't have Jonathan when he was an infant, and there was so much sadness at the time Destiny was born.
We didn't have the opportunity to prepare for her.
Maybe we would have felt this way with them if things had been different.
We're with them right now.
I guess we both had a change of heart, didn't we?
Right now we have to do something about this traffic.
May we come in?
We'll just wait for her.
We're going to take you to the hospital.
We were all getting worried about you.
Lisa, we need to get some information...
We barely know each other.
"Anyway," he added, "We have a guest room."
We'll have to walk the rest.
We'll have to walk from here.
I guess there's nothing we can do here.
We'd better go in the back way or Mom will have my hide.
His mother lives there with him, so it's not like we'd be all alone out there.
Sure. We'll be in after a little bit.
We can handle this job by ourselves.
We both know why you're here.
Speaking of your mother, we'd better go in so she doesn't worry.
"It doesn't appear to be broken," he concluded in a monotone, "But we should take you to a doctor, just to be sure."
I hoped we could go for a walk.
How far do you think we've traveled?
I thought we came out here to look over the country.
We'll go, then, and I promise to keep my hands to myself.
Well, maybe we both did a little.
Thanks, now why don't you get dressed and we'll go out to dinner and a movie or something.
We both agree that you need to get out of this place for a while.
I only meant it would be good to get out of the house, no matter what we went to see.
We'll have to do this more often.
A little, why don't we go in and I'll make us some coffee?
"Let's see, where were we?" he said with a grin.
Because we barely know each other.
"When we first came here," he began in a quiet voice, "I used to walk all over these hills."
Why don't we all eat out on the patio?
Well, we finally have the chance to be alone.
So did I. Maybe you feel like we both betrayed your trust.
We can leave your car here and come after it tomorrow.
We better go in.
He's going to take me to where we left my car last night.
We're on the way to get my car.
Alright. We'll do it your way... but be careful.
If she had asked about the building when we passed it, I might have figured she had never seen it, but she pretended she didn't notice.
We just turned off the highway, so we'll be there pretty soon.
We were getting along so well.
As a matter of fact, I think we're on completely different planets.
It's a part of me, and if we're going to have anything together, you're going to have to accept it.
One day we were out, so I put some powdered sugar in a bag.
So that's why you were looking me up and down the day we met.
