Divergent - Veronica Roth

Here are two quotes from the same scene.


The hand is sweaty and soft.




...their rough skin grates against mine.....


First, notice the direct contradiction. Is the hand on her face soft or rough? And second, since these are bad guys she's talking about, notice that she points out their horrible rough skin, and how it grates against her. Because since they're evil, it would just be impossible for her to not point out their nasty physical attributes, even when she's blindfolded.
