    Summary

    Sometimes, Flint thinks of John Silver’s hands. The still of them, the broad, tanned expanse of them. The way they taper into the fine bones of his slender wrists, glistening with sweat from the heat, brown from the sun.

    His hands don’t move, unlike the restless, ever-shifting rest of him--they have an almost preternatural calm, still on his lap, on the table. Dirt crusted under his fingernails but rings gleaming silver on long, clever fingers.
