The following quote is taken from Voyager by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 24 "A. Malcolm, Printer". Copyrightę 1994 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

I stretched out a hand toward him, as much to stop as to welcome him. I wanted more than anything to touch him again, but was unaccountably shy. After so long, how were we to start again?
He felt the constraint of mingled shyness and intimacy as well. Stopping a few inches from me, he took my hand. He hesitated for a moment, then bent his head over it, his lips barely brushing my knuckles. His fingers touched the silver ring and stopped there, holding the metal lightly between thumb and forefinger.
"I never took it off," I blurted. It seemed important he should know that. He squeezed my hand lightly, but didn't let go.
