“Gabriel had not gone to the door with the others. He was in a dark part of the hall gazing up the staircase. A woman was standing near the top of the first flight, in the shadow also. He could not see her face but he could see the terra-cotta and salmon-pink panels of her skirt which the shadow made appear black and white. It was his wife. She was leaning on the banisters, listening to something. Gabriel was surprised at her stillness and strained his ear to listen also. But he could hear little save the noise of laughter and dispute on the front steps, a few chords struck on the piano and a few notes of a man's voice singing.” (Joyce, 144)
Gabriel is distant with the people for a moment he feels lost he is thinking about the people about everything is happening around him. He is disconnected from the people around him. "Gabriel hardly heard what she said" sums up his state. He looks out the window of the Morkans' drawing room and thinks "How pleasant it would be to walk out alone, first along the river and then through the park!" He is even cut off from the sensual pleasures offered by this celebratory holiday gathering. He foregoes sweets for dessert, eating a stick of celery instead an insult, probably, to his Aunt Julia, who made the pudding. In short, he lacks the emotional intelligence of the protagonist of "The Sisters," and it is this very lack that will lead to his painful downfall at the climax of the story.Gabriel is alienated, as well.
The second section begins with Florence in the church after a long time. She remembers her childhood and bitterness she had toward Gabriel because he was their mother’s favorite. Leaving behind Gabriel and their mother, Florence bought a ticket to NYC where she married Frank. She then remembers a letter from Deborah, Gabriel’s first wife where she assumed that Gabriel had an affair and a child.
Gabriel was born into the prestigious Duvall family and was raised by his mother Eleanor from a young age. Whenever he had an erection, his nanny, Ava Vilka, would take care of it by saying Gabriel shouldn't touch it or it would fall off. When Gabriel was fourteen, Eleanor made his maid, Julia Lonegan, help him take a bath and Julia noticed he was erect. Gabriel asked her to take care of it while repeatedly asking "please". When she wouldn't do so, he raped her. After he was done, he held her in his arms like a mother would hold a child. When Julia told Eleanor about the rape, she threw her out, calling her a whore, and gave her a great deal of money to silence her while Gabriel watched. Gabriel eventually went to military school and then became
In The River, Gabriel experienced the loss of his father which tremendously “shook” his life. This sorrow continued for many years and “turned his life around”. He no longer was the adventurous Gabriel he was the sad and quiet Gabriel. But later on in his life, he ended up with the joy of going back to his father’s company and where he worked and where Gabriel was raised. As a result of the sad event of his father's death, he got the happy life he deserved with Tabitha.
“Without me?” Gabriel called from the top of the carpeted stairs; a fake offended expression on his face. As Gabriel ran down the stairs, Castiel scoffed. He was shocked his little brother didn’t fall. Gabe was typically a clumsy guy, so it was expected. “Morning, Cassandra.”
The one thing that helped Madeline tolerate not being able to go outside was the glass window in the white room, it made her feel more normal and made her felt like she was outside, and if madeline had one wish it would be to run outside like a wild animal. It
Sebastian Unwin climbed into the airship, still wearing his armor and a large sack was thrown over his shoulder. He didn't need a chest like the other knights had for transporting their armor safely, not having many things by choice, so he decided to wear it on the trip back home, it would be easier and feel less heavy if he wore it rather than carried it in the sack like the rest of his clothes. Sebastian hadn't brought many things with him when he left to train at the academy, he didn't have much to take. His sack had a few pairs of old clothes, which did not fit well due to his more muscular frame. Thanks to his training, Sebastian was no longer the lanky teenager he was when he left. There was also a pair of old shoes and a plain wooden box that contained all the letters from his best friend, and now his ward, princess Aewyn Darkwin-Revalon. He had missed her dearly during his time away and had written to her often to try and ease the guilt he felt for leaving. The two of them had grown up together in the castle, being fairly close in age, and his parents being trusted and higher ranking help in the castle. His father was one of the King's personal knights and his mother one of the Queen's lady in waiting, so Sebastian grew up not wanting for much.
Anase wakes up from her bed and sighs. Mother knocks on the door, “Anase, you awake?” Anase doesn't answer and her mother opens the door, poking her head through the doorway, “Honey, someone’s here to see you.” Anase’s heart stops, she could only guess who. Coming down the stairs, Anase immediately recognizes the very tall hooded man who turns to her and smiles too fakely, “You ready, Anase?” Mother smiles, “Of course she is, aren't you Anase?” Anase smiles too horrified to say no. The man, Ender, grabs her arm, “We’ll be back Mrs. Ora.” Anase looks pleadingly back at her mom, who had closed the door.
“CRAP! CRAP! CRAP! What do I do? What do I do?” I yell while frantically pace back and forth in the living room. “How am I supposed to get to the hospital I can’t even drive!” I say sitting down on the couch with my hands in my hair.
Once upon a time there was an old and scary town with only a few people living there. One of those few people was a beautiful girl named Katherine. The town was ruled by an evil prince named David. He had an assistant named Sam, who was very young and only had that job because his parents abandoned him. Everyone who lived in the town feared David, so they stayed in their house. But Katherine was very lonely because her kids were at school and her husband died, so she liked to go out and explore.
“Gabriel…” she began placatingly. She felt awful for hurting his feelings. Madeline liked what she knew of him but it was too soon to ask her to do that. This was only their first date after all.

She looked mournful, and tears were at the corners of her own eyes, but she kept them in as best she could. "I 've heard the news about him. It was very sweet of you to visit him and to be this concerned, I would have..." then she stopped herself.
