She stared at him for a long time while the words sank in.
A vehicle passed by, up on the road, so I let my words sink in a little more.
For a moment, it seemed his words might be sinking in.
The words sank in, but still he didn't look up.
He paused a moment to let the words sink in.
When her words sank in, I felt my eyes well up.
She sat there a moment, letting her words sink in.
He paused for a moment to let his words sink in.
He closed his eyes, and let her words sink in.
He sat there for a moment, letting the words sink in.
