    Question blood draining from his knuckles


    There is this sentence while I'm reading:

    He squeezes the pillow hard, blood draining from his knuckles.
    (This man is sitting at the bed side and there is a pillow in his lap.)

    Is that mean he is really bleeding? As though he squeezed the pillow REALLY hard, could that be possible?
    Or is there any other meaning in it? Please help!!!

    No, it means that he is squeezing the pillow so hard that the blood circulation to his fingers was restricted, and his knuckles turned white.
