Contact, Part III

He stood before me silently for a few seconds, his gaze measuring me from head to toe. Then he did the something that paralyzed me and sent shivers down my spine. He smiled. It was broad and completely devoid of warmth. Then he extended his hand, offering me a handshake I would never take.
