I love the way she pauses.

The way she turns her head to one side, bites her tongue and pauses as she thinks about something

and puts her lips together, pauses then goes emm when she is eating something that is- reallygood.

and when she first wakes up, thinking slowly about what to say, pauses and chooses syllables with sleepy eyes

Later, she is talking about a kid in her class, how he can't put thoughts into words, so he draws a picture of the boat and puts it over his head and pause DIS!

Her hands move through her hair with a brush, she pauses and looks up at me through her bangs.. yes?

her eyes follow me, my heart stops as she
pauses
