The way he speaks

Have you ever been in love with the way someone speaks?

I don’t just mean the way words sound when coming out of their mouth, but also their gestures, the way their eyes linger and focus on things that are so close yet they look at them as if they were nearly out of view. The way their body flexes right before they say something that’s been pressing down on their very soul, and the way they quietly exhale in relief once it’s out there.

And now… Now his focus shifts as if he can observe his words dancing around like the flames of some fire.
