His eyes had a little glitter that conveyed a little bit of warmth, mischievousness, yet also looked ironically mature. They are slightly brown, almost hazel, inviting and penetrating at the same time. She had lost herself in them once, well twice actually. She was not sure.

His hair was never neatly combed; it always seemed to fall over his forehead, sometimes hindering his vision, till he had to brush them back.
