Micro Fiction Writing Challenge

Want to give Micro Fiction a whirl?

In 100 words or less, describe someone’s hands and let them tell the story.

Here's my stab at it...

His hands were meticulously manicured – smooth and wrinkle-free.  His razor-like fingernails protruded 3 inches past the tips of his fingers and curled slightly downward.  A gold ring with an enormous square-cut ruby encircled his index finger and when the light hit it just right, the color perfectly matched the blood dripping from his nails.

Feel free to post your story as a comment. I'd love to read with you write from the prompt.
