Mikhail Sergeyevich Telegin, generally called Misha; and at the foot of the table
sat Missy herself, with an empty place next to her. 'Ah, that's right. Sit down – we
are still only at the fish course,' said old Korchagin, carefully and with difficulty
chewing with his false teeth and looking up at Nekhlyudov with bloodshot,
apparently lidless eyes. 'Stepan,' he called, with his mouth full, addressing the
stout dignified butler and indicating with a glance the empty place. Although
Nekhlyudov knew ...

This would be the best wine Don Luis would ever taste in his life. One of the
servants announced that their dinner was ready. It had been, in fact, ready for
sometime awaiting the last of their guests. The dining room and kitchen were
across the courtyard and did not have the fine view of the other living spaces.
Fresh fragrant candles had been lit and the table was set for eight. The empty
place at the table was in remembrance of the colonel's late wife. Her place next to
the colonel had ...

The governor glanced at the four counselors who were seated around the table,
but he did not speak. He slowly paced the floor, gazing steadily at the wall in front
of him, waiting for his thoughts to quiet. Impatience mingled with irritation as he
stopped and looked at the somber and expectant faces of Gideon, Himni, Melek
and Seezoran and then at the empty chair where Ablom should have been sitting
. No one spoke, but everyone looked at the empty place at the table. The sound

It was the most expensive Irish whiskey they sold at the liquor store. After they ate
(a large platter of leftovers left for them by the middle-aged women) Shadow
poured a generous tot into each glass – his, Ibis's, Jacquel's and Mad Sweeney's.
'So what if he's sitting on a gurney in the cellar,' said Shadow, as he poured, 'on
his way to a pauper's grave. Tonight we'll toast him, and give him the wake he
wanted.' Shadow raised his glass to the empty place at the table. 'I only met Mad

CHAPTER 1 Thou shalt prepare a table before me against them that trouble me:
thou hast anointed my head with oil, and my cup shall be full. Psalm 23.5 No one
at the dinner party mentioned the empty place at table. There was certainly
awareness of it; Lucy Kingsley sensed it in the occasional speculative glances
cast from around the table in the direction of the empty chair. Their hostess had
said merely that Canon Brydges-ffrench was indisposed and would not be joining
them that ...

While lingering at the court, Perceval asks at the evening meal about the
meaning of the empty place and begs permission to seat himself there,
threatening departure should this be denied him. The King ... As we have seen,
Merlin has already advised Arthur concerning the establishment of the Round
Table; he has also mentioned the motif of Judas and has said that the empty seat,
the siege perilleux, will be occupied for the first time by a knight who has found
the Grail. By seating ...

CHAPTER SIX THE EMPTY PLACE It all started with an empty place at the
dinner table at the Mission House. Usually we all are lunch together at a large
wooden square table in a room rather grandly referred to as the 'refectory' even
though it would have been a bit poky as a dining room in a Country vicarage. The
unspoken rule was that we all sat in the same places; there was quiet
consternation and a gentle whispered correction when an unsuspecting visitor
happened to sit in one ...

I took out the place mats from the cupboard in the dining room. I automatically
picked four. I felt Isabella's eyes on me and looked at her. We froze in midait for a
split second, without saying anything, but I could see something between terror
and admonishment in her eyes. She didn't want me to make that mistake, as if it
would be too much to beat. I rushed back to the cupboard and put the fourth mat
back in its place. I laid the plates at the three sides of the table. The empty side of

Finally the candles were lit, the food was on the table, and everyone gathered in
the dining room. “Where are Emmanuel and Uncle Theodore?” Adele asked. “
They'll be here soon,” Mama said. Just then the two of them entered the room.
They had locked arms to make a chair for Papa, and they carried him right to his
place at the head of the table. Elisa saw the tears in her mother's eyes glistening
in the candlelight. “Papa! You're back at the table with us!” Albertine said. “Yes,
