The same voice that got her into this mess and told her to drown herself had given her this reminder twice.  Katie sensed she wasn't safe where she was, but she didn't want to travel without Gabriel.

Gabe leaned across her to grab the bag with his weapons' polishing supplies.  A necklace with two emeralds – identical to the one he'd given her to wear – dangled above her.

The one he'd given her was tucked safely against her skin.

Katie ate her food and water cubes, waiting for Gabriel.  She fingered the second necklace he'd given her, not convinced Andre was wrong.  The beads felt like plastic, and something about Gabe had changed.

If you get Katie back and the world goes to shit, all you've done is given her an Immortality of hell on earth.

Kris and Kiki both looked towards the sky when the thunder began.  They'd both given their jackets to Hannah, whose step was growing slower the farther they went into the jungle.  Kiki muttered but didn't openly bitch, probably knowing Kris had no patience for anyone insulting his mate.

She pulled, and he ran.  Katie felt the ground shake beneath them as the demons pursued.  Several flew overhead and dropped directly in their path.  She stopped and shoved Toby behind her, drawing the knife Gabe had given her.  Before long, they were surrounded.

They were given reasonable service and whispered offers to, "Stay three nights, the next one's free, and we'll give you a receipt for four."

I suppose any of us might act stupid, given the circumstances.

Given more time, he'd have preferred to put the bike on the car's rack and chew up some countryside miles, tour­ing the hills and farm lands that surrounded Parkside.

He appar­ently was given a whiff of the bigs in a losing September when a few fortunate minor leaguers get a peek of how the other side lives.

Murder seems a real stretch, given lack of motive—nothing missing, no evidence or anything else usual to a homicide.

I appreciate all the help you've given mom.

It looks like she's too goody-goody to sue any­body, but I haven't given up yet.

Dean waited until he was home before looking at the address Rudman had given him.

Dean hadn't given that much thought but he remembered what Vinnie Baratto had said about the Maryland eastern shore and explained it was across the Chesapeake Bay.

Given the weather, that might not be easy, especially near the air­port.

He knew she was on borrowed time given the alcohol's delayed reaction.

I thought he might want a refund on his unused rent, not that I'd have given it to him, but he didn't even ask.

That was not to say Fred had given up on amateur detecting.

But Dean's denial of Cynthia's implication appeared well founded given her reaction to the discovery of the body in Norfolk.

Dean spent the balance of Friday wading through paperwork, a chore made more depressing than usual because yesterday's driz­zle had given birth to a storybook spring day.

Dean glanced at his watch and threaded his way through the crowd to the bar, hoping Cynthia had not given up.

After a series of phone calls to Denver and some monstrous lies, Dean managed to finagle a slot on the bike tour, not an easy accomplishment given the short time before the popular event.

He had covered only 23 miles but each mile had given him a sense of accomplishment that astonished him.

We're 'officially' given a job to do and then the brass leaves the room while we discuss how to 'unofficial­ly' get it done.

Before Alex came along, Carmen had never given much thought to a father – only that she wanted children.

Carmen made a face and continued eating, her mind on the information he had given her.

She wasn't ready for that yet and she hadn't completely given up the idea of biological children.

If it was none of his business, why had she explained - given him proof?

Then again, maybe he had given a lot of thought to her argument.

Whatever he wanted – he had given her the money for it.

He had given her no reason to feel this way.

Certainly Alex had given her no reason to be afraid - so far.

Climbing into the car he purchased for her, she headed out with the new bank account he had given her to do some guilt free shopping.

It wasn't as if he hadn't given her time to correct the problem.

To be honest, she hadn't given it much thought or effort.

Grabbing a paper towel, she began wiping the eggs off and putting them in cartons people had given her.

Alex had given her more than a roof over her head and food.

He had given her respect, consideration and love.

He was probably upset that she didn't answer her cell phone, but he had given her strict orders not to use it when she was driving.

She should have walked away and given him a chance to think about it, instead of slapping that awful word from his mouth?

She always seemed to know what was going on inside people's heads, and to anticipate how a person would react to a given circumstance.

Things were uncomfortable between them, but they hadn't given up.

It doesn't look like you've given any of this much thought.

She hadn't given it much thought until now, but Katie was right.

It was the first directive he'd given her since she came home from the hospital.

He had given her in death what he denied her in life.

Given the circumstances, she could forgive him.

Jonny hadn't given them any direction, she assessed.

She'd given it to Talia before she left then reclaimed it after the first wave of the Schism ripped through the Immortal world.

He'd given no more details, a sign something was up.

She finally recognized the shape of the necklace she'd given Darian the day before.

Jonny's words bounced around in her thoughts as she recalled the look Darian had given the portal they stumbled upon.

She'd never forgiven herself for leaving her family, and she'd never given herself permission to move on and be happy.

She didn't move away from him, the first sign she'd given that maybe she had come to terms with their relationship moving to the next level.

Darian had given her the power to choose.

Darian saw the fury cross Jenn's face, and her next strikes were fast and hard enough they might've given her the upper hand she needed.

If given a choice between trusting him and walking away from him, she'd trust him.

He'd left her sleeping and assumed she'd given up whatever game she played.

My king, I've given you the city, haven't I?

Other than that, she had given his gun little use.

She had given his rifle to Josh before she met Alex.

After Josh died, Lori had given it back to her.

Alex had taught Jonathan to shoot the first year after they had adopted him, but today he still got the same precautionary lecture that her father had given her.

If he had been scouting around, he had given no indication.

I have given you a little information on the wildlife you might see during your stay here.

Had he given Brutus something for that purpose?

If Alex had given Brutus something to put him down, it was because he was afraid she didn't have the courage to make that decision.

She was referred through several people and finally given a number.

No, I want you to respect the clothing you are given and not destroy them.

Obviously the answer she had given him in the beginning hadn't satisfied his need.

What he would do about any given situation at this point was a mystery.

Carmen and Alex were given a room upstairs.

They hadn't given him the opportunity to adjust to the idea before they were bombarding him with life altering decisions.

He glanced up at their picture over the mantle, and then at the painting he had given her of her parents.

They would enjoy each day that had been given them as a gift.

Regardless, he had given his word and no matter how it came out, there was no turning back at this point.

Given free rein to improvise as he saw fit, the law student had found the employee and created his own sting.

Even after she had returned his ring, he hadn't given up.

He had given her a week to get her head on straight.

It appears you have given this matter a great deal of thought - and planning.

Scott Muldrow must have given Dad a copy of the map.

Had Dad given him instructions to the place, or...

If he had been afraid, he had given no indication.

For the first time she spoke his given name.

In the time that she had known him, he had given no indication that he was impressed by money or people with important positions.

They were her, as if he'd been given access to her at the deepest levels.

This university was founded in 1621 and the university of Buenos Aires in 1821, but although Bonpland and some other European scientists were members of the faculty of Buenos Aires in its early years, neither there nor at Cordoba was any marked attention given to the natural sciences until President Sarmiento (official term, 1868-1874) initiated scientific instruction at the university of Cordoba under the eminent German naturalist, Dr Hermann Burmeister (1807-1892), and founded the National Observatory at Cordoba and placed it under the direction of ' There are two distinct statistical offices compiling immigration returns and their totals do not agree, owing in part to the traffic between Buenos Aires and Montevideo.

In 1906 the president announced that permission had been given by the German emperor for 30 Argentine officers to enter the German army each year and to serve eighteen months, and also for five officers to attend the Berlin Military Academy.

Since each letter is represented by a specific combination of positive and negative currents, it is possible, by means of the combinations, to close a local circuit at any given interval, and so cause the paper to be pressed against the periphery of the type-wheel at the time when the letter required is opposite.

The record of the signals given by this instrument was an undulating line of fine perforations or spots, and the character and succession of the undulations were used to interpret the signals desired to be sent.

The speed of a cable is given in words per minute, the conventional number of five letters per word being understood, though in actual practice, owing to the extensive use of special codes, the number of letters per word is really between eight and nine; and this forms a considerable factor in lowering the earning capacity of a cable.

The key to his character is well given in what Hooper said of him in a letter to Bullinger, that he was " too fearful about what might happen to him."

At this point we must also call to mind the wide currency given to the term theology by Abelard, and his editors or copyists.

Here then characteristically intuitionalism occupies a half-way house between empiricism, with its appeal to real given fact, and idealism, with its appeal to necessity.

Given certain linear and angular measurements, the area must be so and so.

It is a problem for empiricism; given a world where nothing but phenomenal sequences exist, to account for moral ideals.

The fixed given points of intuitionalism furnish Hamilton with one of his arguments in his unexpected development towards a sceptical or " faith philosophy."

It is no ultimate given point of departure; it is due to the reaction of thought upon sensation.

Duty must be accepted as a given certainty, or it is vindicated - unsatisfactorily enough, perhaps - in the way just explained.

Kant then has broken away from intuitionalism by substituting one system of necessity for the many necessary truths or given experiences from which intuitionalism takes its start.

The great critic of scepticism has diverged from idealism toward scepticism again, or has given his idealism a sceptical colour, mitigated - but only mitigated - by faith in the moral consciousness.

It is not the first runnings of the stream of religious thinking which have given the world its theistic philosophies.
