Title: Turning Pages
Author: colormeloved

Prompt: "Eloquently"
Rating: General

It was all in the eloquent process of his fingers.

His body barely shifted at all from the same position, but his fingers were in constant motion. They’d start at the top of the page, the ring finger delicately following the edge and then pulling it separated from the others so that the tiniest finger could slip underneath.

Then each finger crept behind, gliding down in increments almost too slow to watch, until he finished the last line- the last word. Once the page was turned, the fingertips pressed gently on until it rested, then returned to patiently start again.

Prompt: "Eloquently"

“I’m an ass,” he muttered, rather eloquently.

“You’re damn right.”
