I just gotta add real quick that the way she looks at him before even touching his cuff is so careful. She doesn’t want to hurt him. She wants him to know that it’s okay, that she’s not disgusted or freaked out or at all uncomfortable with the fact that he doesn’t have a hand for her to hold. And she’s giving him this very calm ‘It’s okay’ look. And he’s watching her, gauging her reaction and being so incredibly cautious of how she might react because it’s something that still bothers him, something that makes him feel less than what he once was. But she’s so gentle, so careful, and yet she’s not casual about it because it means something.
