1 Mattie seemed to feel the contagion of his embarrassment, and sat with downcast lids, sipping her tea, while he feigned an insatiable appetite for dough-nuts and sweet pickles.
2 Her tone was so sweet that he took the pipe from his mouth and drew his chair up to the table.
3 The green eyes in the carefully sweet face were turbulent, willful, lusty with life, distinctly at variance with her decorous demeanor.
4 She did, and a sweet quiet thing she is, with never a word to say for herself, like a woman should be.
5 Most of all she learned how to conceal from men a sharp intelligence beneath a face as sweet and bland as a baby's.
6 At sixteen, thanks to Mammy and Ellen, she looked sweet, charming and giddy, but she was, in reality, self-willed, vain and obstinate.
7 The mockingbirds and the jays, engaged in their old feud for possession of the magnolia tree beneath her window, were bickering, the jays strident, acrimonious, the mockers sweet voiced and plaintive.
8 It would never do to appear sedate and elderly before Melanie's sweet youthfulness.
9 Pa is a sweet, selfish, irresponsible darling, Scarlett thought, with a surge of affection for him.
10 There was a faint wild fragrance of sweet shrub on the breeze and the world smelled good enough to eat.
11 Scarlett turned smiling green eyes upon her younger sister, wondering how anyone could be so sweet.
12 And he's never acted very sweet on her, for all that they're engaged.
13 Too wide across the cheek bones, too pointed at the chin, it was a sweet, timid face but a plain face, and she had no feminine tricks of allure to make observers forget its plainness.
14 She did not even feel his pinch, for she could hear clearly the sweet voice that was Melanie's chief charm: "I fear I cannot agree with you about Mr. Thackeray's works."
15 Scarlett felt it was just Melanie's way of parading her conquest and getting credit for being sweet at the same time.
