1 "If there's going to be any trouble I want to be there," was his vague reflection, as he threw to Jotham the unexpected order to unhitch the team and lead them back to the barn.
2 This suggestion met with the complete approval of Prissy, who was now reduced to teeth- chattering idiocy at every unexpected sound.
3 Any unexpected noise or sharp word set him to trembling, for in his mind noises and harsh words were inextricably mixed with Yankees and he was more afraid of Yankees than of Prissy's hants.
4 Melanie met them halfway, surprising Scarlett with her unexpected vivacity as she told of trials at Tara, making light of hardships.
5 Perhaps he had seen too much of the unexpected ever to be startled again.
6 Scarlett trailed after him, somewhat at a loss, a trifle disappointed as at an unexpected anticlimax.

8 They drank heavily at Scarlett's parties, far too heavily, and usually after a reception there were one or more unexpected guests who stayed the night.
9 If he was startled at her unexpected statement he did not show it.
10 He had the dull man's unexpected flashes of astuteness, and Lily could not help joining in the laugh with which he had pounced on the truth.

12 Beat about the question as she would, she knew the outcome of it was that she must try to marry Rosedale; and in this conviction she was fortified by an unexpected visit from George Dorset.
13 Lily's colour rose at the unexpected advance: it was a long time since real kindness had looked at her from any eyes but Gerty's.
14 Lily's blush deepened to a glow in which humiliation and gratitude were mingled; and both sentiments revealed themselves in the unexpected gentleness of her reply.
15 It was a business communication from the office of her aunt's executors, and she wondered what unexpected development had caused them to break silence before the appointed time.
