A chink of gold held her tooth together. If she applied pressure she felt the sharp blades dig into her tender gums. If she probed it with her tongue, curious or absent minded it elicited the same bark of pain but she continued to do it nonetheless, convinced that the right amount of pressure could stop the pain.

The tooth fell out.
A description of marriage.

... It isn't always necessary... I agree, its quite a common sight and it happens often, but its not always necessary...

varies from place to place... the ache can be in any form... just depends on the amount of pressure put in...

sometimes its just a fleeting moment... other times its agonizing...

Nods... sometimes we are the author of our own demise... and I don't mean that in the literal (haha, literary) sense.
