The calm was like a sheet stretched taut in the wind.
She felt lost and bewildered, stretched taut by the need to know.
Stretched taut by the harness, his skin was a hot, angry red.
Above the but on the right of the man still waiting there, the cable stretched taut.
White and blank, stretched so taut it felt like a drum.
It stretched taut in the blackness of the road outside the Wall.
He was so skinny, just skin stretched taut over bones.
The skin was dark and like leather stretched taut over the bones.
The skin was a little too thin, as if it had been stretched taut.
The dwarf was coming, the line in his hands stretched taut.
