a dimpled cheek

People have been complementing her on her dimple. It was not new to her, she's been hearing it since childhood. 'complement' might be a little too far-fetched. Well, appreciation is a better word.

She nodded her head whenever somebody made a mention of it. Did it concern her? She never paid any attention to it. Guess, when something comes naturally to a person, she/he hardly spends any energy on it.

Lately, somebody made a statement regarding the dimple on her chin: 'The dimple suits you', or something to that effect.

That statement has been playing on her mind, for quite some time. Rather, she's been allowing the fiddling to happen. Was that really meant, or was it just a passing remark?

It does not matter.

It always accompanied a grin..... a scowl.... a glare..... an angry face with eyes scrunched up..... laughter which made a feeble effort on a tear-stained cheek.

There, the ends of her tender lips are pulled apart in a smile. While a dimple adds charm to it. Afterall, it's worth it's presence.
