Lafarge had to sit down.  They boy came and stood before him and took his hand.  The old man felt his fingers, warm and firm.(121)

You could hear the tinkle of ice in the lemonade pitcher.(37)

He heard the front door open, the rain and wind came in, the door shut.  He heard the soft footsteps on the hearth and a gentle breathing.(121)

He took a gun from his holster with a creak of leather.  He pointed it carefully.(138)
