An Overabundance Of Smiling

In Young Hercules: Cheiron's Warriors, one of the overused descriptions is that someone "smiled". My jaw is sore just reading about it! ^_~

  • Go, Jason! Hercules thought with a smile.
  • Then Kostas did something really scary: he smiled.
  • Jason, now getting into it, smiled and took a swing at Iolaus's shoulder.
  • "You're right, Herc," Iolaus said with a smile.
  • Strife laughed his fake laugh, smiled his fake smile, and chuckled a fake chuckle.
  • Ares smiled. "That was one of many reasons why I killed the old man."
  • Ares smiled. "I have little use for dinars, Elias. Oh, feel free to donate something to one of my temples if you feel you must. I certainly won't stop you. But my interest is more... bloody."
  • Elias returned the smile. "Warfare, I presume?"
  • He was still smiling, but it was a greedy smile now.
  • Ares sat on his throne sideways, left leg on the floor, right leg draped over one of the throne's flared arms. He smiled.
  • Cheiron smiled. Those were good days.
  • With a smile to himself, he thought, If you'd told me when I was younger that I would enjoy the rigors of adulthood, I would have laughed. But that is the eternal folly of youth, as I see every day.
  • Cheiron simply smiled at them. That usually made them nervous, and they looked away.
  • Given that the person is late, Cheiron thought with a smile, it might well be Iolaus.
  • Cheiron allowed himself a small smile. "You have no idea."
  • Too bad, she thought with a smile. He's so much fun when he's upset.
  • Hercules had to smile at the grin on his friend's face.
  • Jason smiled, "Oh, I think he's motivated now."
  • Iolaus smiled. Obviously, Herc didn't want Kostas to hear this.
  • Iolaus stopped smiling. The words sounded like the carefree Jason whom Iolaus knew and loved.
  • Once again Iolaus smiled. Okay, he thought, here comes the part where Herc tells Kostas he wants to go after Cheiron and Kostas says no.
  • Iolaus plowed through his as if it were his last meal. Hercules almost smiled at that.
  • Lilith smiled. "Sorry, Hercules, I can't do that."
  • Iolaus smiled. "Yeah, that could work. But, uh, I'd need to go alone."
  • Hercules smiled. Lilith had met Alcmene when she'd joined him, Iolaus, and Jason for the festival of Persephone at his village.
  • "Oh, yeah," Hercules said with a smile, "That'd be real rough, marrying some nice guy."
  • Hercules smiled. "That's probably already saved my life once or twice."
  • Lilith smiled. "That's great!"
  • Hiding a smile, Jason thought, Four of us, four of them. I get the feeling that was on purpose.
  • For the second time, he had to hide a smile.
  • "As I suspected," Makhunni said with a small smile.
  • Now Makhunni smiled.
  • "Yes, Your Highness," Ophistus said with a nasty smile.
  • Ophistus smiled as he got up. "With pleasure, Your Highness."
  • Smiling, Gilmanides said, "I don't know. But that doesn't mean you wouldn't."
  • Smiling, at Hercules, Iolaus said, "Go to it, buddy."
  • Gilmanides smiled and then bowed to her. "As is his wife, as well."
  • As Petros led him belowdecks, Hercules smiled, thinking, We may pull this off after all.
  • "Let's check it out, then," Strife said with a smile.
  • Discord smiled and blinked. On anyone else, the smile would have looked pretty and friendly.
  • Then she smiled, thinking, I like the sound of that. Have to remember it.
  • Ares smiled happily at the memory.
  • Mortals come and go so quickly, he thought with a smile.
  • Ares smiled.
  • And another spoke in the wheel of my plan, the war god added to himself with a small smile.
  • "This," Ares said with a smile, "is Graegus, my dog of war. He should be able to take care of my half-brother. Without Hercules, the other two will be easy pickings."
  • Smiling, Hercules said, "Maybe not. I've got an idea. Come on, let's check out that ditch."
  • Hercules smiled and put his arm around Iolaus's shoulder. "That's where you come in."
  • The gods were smiling on Kaz today.
  • Turning around, Lilith saw three more men enter through the door. They had vicious smiles on their faces.
  • Makhunni actually smiled. "I'm afraid that we don't go for this sort of - decoration. Our tools and such are practical. We are creatures of the outdoors. In fact, even this room is uncomfortable for me."
  • Makhunni smiled again, but it wasn't a very nice smile this time.
  • Makhunni either scowled or smiled snidely.
  • Maybe speech-making boy brought home the bacon after all, he thought with a smile.
  • Hercules smiled. That was Iolaus's voice.
  • Smiling, Elias corrected himself. "Your half brother figured you might be a pain. So he gave me a little help."
  • He smiled. "Though I doubt any of us will mind if you choose to fight."
  • Tyldus smiled. "Don't worry. I'm pretty sure I can convince this Captain Gilmanides that our need is great."
  • "The slavers will not be joining us," Tyldus said, no longer smiling.
  • Sinis smiled. "So instead I trade Elias's chains for Tyldus's? No, thanks, Cheiron."
  • Sinis smiled. "Good. I didn't really want to stay here. Besides, I have an appointment in Corinth. Some boy named Autolycus wants to learn how to pick locks. If I'm lucky, he hasn't given up on me."
  • Cheiron smiled. "Perhaps he thinks Ares will watch over him."
  • "Come, then," Tyldus said with a smile. "Let us convince its captain that he should change course."
  • For only the second time Jason saw Makhunni smile. A real smile, not the snide one he'd been using.
  • Jason reached up and clasped Tyldus's wrist in a warrior's handshake. "It's an honor to meet you, sir." He smiled.
  • "This is nothing," Hercules said with a smile.
  • Cheiron smiled. "I knew he would."
  • Cheiron's smile grew wider. "Congratulations, Jason. You have just learned the first lesson of diplomacy."
  • Discord smiled. Ares smiled back.
  • Discord smiled, and they both disappeared.
  • Then Kostas actually smiled. Unlike the ugly smile he had used on Jason the other day, this was a real one.
