His hands were dry – soft but not delicate. The fingers were individually hairy but not in a way that was anything but Italian.
That old gold watch snugged up around his wrist – battered like his heart after all these years. Battered but accurate and always on time.

His grace was incongruous to his large frame – to his chicken legs and barrel chest. There was not an ounce of weakness in him.
