Theme Thursdays

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event
hosted @ Reading Between the Pages
This weeks theme is Old.

This snippet is from The Yellow Claw by Sax Rohmer.

A hand, of old ivory hue, a long, yellow, clawish hand, with part of a sinewy forearm, crept in from the black lobby through the study doorway and touched the electric switch!
