The moment of silence between them stretched even longer this time.
The moment had stretched as an eternity in Ethan's mind.
Slowly, his own mouth began to curve and, shared, the moment stretched.
That moment stretched into a while, and threatened to become a spell.
The moment stretched into eternity as both men brought their weapons to bear.
The moment stretched to an awkward length and still the King said nothing.
The moment stretched, and I looked away, sat down facing her.
The moment stretched into one, two, three, a minute, another.
Each time Auden stopped, sat back, stretched, and allowed himself a moment of rest.
