Facesper

zxvasdf

Created by: zxvasdf

Pronunciation: Faces per

Sentence: She would sit in the middle of pedestrian traffic and be engulfed in emotion, her delicate talent facespering strains of thoughts from the expressions of strangers that streamed past her like writhing eels in a current. A facesper like her had a tendency towards a delicacy in bone structure and diminutiveness in size, as if the swell of emotion splayed on the faces of the world caused the body to shrink inwards. Facesperate attempts by non-sensitives were the subject of ridicule by true facespers.

Etymology: Face (anterior part of the skull) & ESP (Extra Sensory Perception)& -er (one that has)
