⌆ a nervous tic or habit they do

When upset, he has a tendency to rub his forearms. 

⏀ describe their usual smile

It usually starts at one corner of his mouth, then quickly turns into a toothy, good-natured grin that spreads the entire way across his face.

The man had a nice smile, Will decided. Even though there was something to be said about the eyes being the window’s to the soul, Will always thought that the smile was also a good indication. Swelling slightly with pride at being called “sir”, he trotted after the mortician, following him back into his office.

"Thank you, sir," Will in turn. "It’s for my mentor, you see. He…he went away and I just want a memorial to help remember him," he tried to explain, face scrunching with slightly frustration as his words failed him. "I’m sorry. I suppose I don’t really know what I’m looking for."

The undertaker listened attentively. “Mmhm.” He replied, nodding. “Perhaps I can help. Please, take seat.” He gestured to the two upholstered chairs which sat before a large wooden desk. 

He walked over to a book shelf which stood against the wall behind the desk. An array of urns sat perched atop it and a multitude of leather-bound books sat on the selves. “Let me see…” He tapped his index finger to his lips in thought before finally selecting one of the books. He walked over to the desk and sat down in the chair behind it, placing the book down. 

"This is an index of various styles of monuments." He opened the book to the first page and then turned it towards to the boy. "Why don’t you look through it and see if anything catches your fancy?"

She was relieved to see a smile starting to reappear on him, and she promptly followed him silently, looking around the room they were brought to. She looked at the equipment that was laid on the small table, giving time to look at the wooden cabinet as well.

The mention of the war gave Iris a curious look, but mostly a small frown at it. “There is a war here?” She asked, knowing that would probably increase business, but it was still not a good thing for her to hear.

"While there have been plenty of conflicts in this fair country, I mean the one over seas, the so-called ‘War Between the States’. I have been too consumed in my own affairs to know all the particulars of it, but what does interest me is the embalming techniques that have arisen. There is a gentleman by the name of Dr. Thomas Holmes who has perfected an arterial form of embalming in which the deceased veins are pumped full of preservative chemicals. This process has been a boon as it allows the fallen soldiers to be brought home without having to worry about troublesome decay on the journey back. Their former president, Lincoln I believe his name was, was preserved in the same manner, and very artfully so, or so I have read. Oh how I wish I could have seen his body in person. I would absolutely love to confer with Dr. Holmes.” 

His enthusiasm on the subject was apparent; there was a sparkle in his eyes and his hands moved about in dramatic gestures as he spoke. 

He paused, took a deep breath, clasped his hands before him, and cleared his throat. “But, that is enough of my rambling.”
