Tongues. They're a significant part of the body; the tongue is a key part in producing words. Without one you're basically speechless. Sure there are other ways of communication, but you don't have a voice; a specific sound that's all your own. There are also other uses. Taste, for example. If you're tongue-less how are you to taste your food?

Personally, I've always liked tongues. The way they impact society; 'Speak now or forever hold you peace', 'I forget, but it's on the tip of my tongue', 'Cat got your tongue'. The list goes on and on. One particular one that hits close to home for me happens to be 'You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say or do can and will be held against you in the court of law'. Tongues are always talked about, even if people don't realize it.

My first word was 'dad'. That's the tongue's doing right there. You don't even realize it but suddenly your tongue decides to be useful and form a word. A friend of mine's first word was 'shoes' and it's all she talks about still.

And of course there's always the feeling of that certain someone's tongue; pressing against your teeth, tangoing with your own tongue. Watching it as it wets their lips, licks their ice cream. Them proving to you that they can tie a cherry stem in a knot with their tongue. Everything.

My name is Isabella Swan and I like tongues. Specifically, I like Edward Cullen's tongue.
