Wow, thank you so much for your response — and sorry for my very late one! You have very substantial input there for me to write a stronger story. I have to admit that at the time of writing I thought the narrator would not be observant to the act itself — hence the lack of details — but the irony that each glistening sweat would remind him of a woman he will never have could be such a powerful element indeed. I will be sure to remember this in my next writings. Thank you so much!
