Tell; If looks could kill

 

 

Show: He suddenly stopped speaking as he noticed his wife, her face a subtle mask of controlled anger except for her eyes, from which emanated all the passion that was missing from her face. He paled as he realized what he had done.

 

 

Tell: She was burned out at this job.

Tell: He swam with the dolphins.

Tell: The temple was beautiful.

Tell: His body was beaten beyond recognition.

 

 

Show: His lifeless corpse lay draped across the porch. He might have been handsome, he might have been ugly. At this point, no one would ever know until they got a positive ID from someone who had seen him in life. His swollen, purple lips barely hid the stumps of his broken teeth and his cheeks looked like his mouth was full of cotton.
