The beard

by oliver818

John wasn't the kind of person who generally took a great interest in his looks. His first acts every day were to drink a large, black coffee, smoke a cigarette and, if he had time, take a shower. But that day, he did take take an interest. In fact, his eyes widened like tea-cups as he ran his fingers through the thick brown hairs of the full, dark brown beard that covered his face. He had to admit, he found it rounded out his face, making him more charming than before. The only weird thing was, it hadn't been there when he had gone to sleep the night before.
