Another 100 words for Severus. If you like this please take a look at "Shame and Disgrace" which would be part of this style of drabble. I'd call them loosely connected.

Please review. ^_^

The look in his eyes is the definition of longing without all the messy words.

Perhaps unknowingly, or because he wishes to be caught, his stone, unflinching facade falls and his cruel eyes turn soft and sad with a nostalgic twitch on the left side of his mouth where he is holding back a smile.

He looks so young like this as he tries not to laugh at a joke not meant for him. The restraint takes strength, but alas he fails and a soft noise escapes him, which not many notice.

His youth soon leaves behind a closed door.
