“Original Face” / A Memorable Fancy #279

     When he met her for the first time, he had memorized her face and voice, how she moved, not her appearance itself but how these features meant to him, if he thought her face pretty or striking or out of proportion, her voice high or low – because he knew that with time and accustoming he would not see her face, hear her voice in the same way, could not recapture his original thought of her unless now he noted and remembered.

     Much later, he is trying to recapture that memory of her from long ago, what so enchanted him – and she, him.
