The words hit him in the face like cold water.
The words hit home and Crystal knew it showed on her face.
Without warning, her words hit him in the face like ice water.
The words hit hard, deep inside where the bleeding wouldn't show.
So the word from the doctor didn't hit me too hard.
She watched the blood drain from his face as her words hit him.
The words hit hard, and it took a moment for him to respond.
His words hit me like a stake through the heart.
Her words hit me so hard I have to turn away.
His words hit me like a bucket of cold water.
