"It was not a beautiful face, but it had a hidden disquieting charm. Were his eyelashes to blame? Thick and exceedingly long, they threw a strange blue shadow over the entire face. Or was his eyes responsible? They were large and black, full of light, full of darkness -all intimidation and sweetness. Flickering like those of a snake, they stared at you from between the long lashes, and your head reeled."
