At first, he wasn't sure if he'd ever get used to it, but it quickly became something he missed when he took it off for vigorous work. He felt naked without the ring on his finger.
“Are you ever going to stop playing with it?” Jane had been watching him roll the ring around his finger.
“Playing with what?” Todd looked up.
“Your ring. You've been fiddling with it for almost half an hour now.”
