1 She shone at him across the table.
2 His head reeled and he had to support himself against the table.
3 She raised distressed eyes to his, her work dropping on the table between them.
4 She went out of the kitchen and Mattie, rising, began to clear the dishes from the table.
5 Her tone was so sweet that he took the pipe from his mouth and drew his chair up to the table.
6 She sprang to her feet as Ethan entered and carried the covered dish of meat-pie to the table.
7 They drew their seats up to the table, and the cat, unbidden, jumped between them into Zeena's empty chair.
