A.N: Just a little way I thought Hermonie and Severus could express themselves without causing too much revulsion. Much love to my beta, and enjoy. Reviews are nice as well. I should mention that a recently read fanfiction off Ashwinder had a phrase that I somewhat borrowed, "The past is a different world, they do things differently there." I can't remember where I found that, but if it's yours, let me know and I'll credit you.
He is what he is.
(By a Know-it-all to a sarcastic bastard)
Tortured by fate and caught up in war,
There's something charming to his smile.
Though twisted through sneering all the while,
It's still something I'd like to see a little bit more,
Small slips to last longer than the moment before.
Long a master and student in deceit and guile –
Such Fiends turned demeanor something short and hostile;
Twisting living into a distasteful unlikeable chore.
Still, I love him yet,
In spite of his dark deeds and history.
Perhaps it's not something easy to forget;
However, the past is a different world,
And as such, they do things differently.
I merely teach him how to live with regret.
