He was tall. That was the absolute first thing that you noticed. He was tall. He was a tall, slim, physically attractive man in a black suit. You were impressed. You had even been staring at him without realizing it until he asked you what was so wrong.
“Is something the matter, Miss?”
“It’s nothing,” you muttered, blushing as red as the tomatoes that were in the barrels beside you. You both had crossed paths in the market.
“If you insist,” he said, closing his eyes formally for a second.
Without saying another word to you, he walked away, tomatoes in his gloved hands. You felt a mix of shame and disappointment, but you decided that it was best to forget about the stranger. You had already taken a mental picture of his beauty anyway.
You ran into him once more, however. After your second meeting, you never saw him again. It was when you both stood in line to pay. You made conversation with the man. You even got him to introduce himself! His name was Sebastian Michaelis, butler of Phantomhive Manor.
And while you both exchanged a brief conversation, you took notice of his eyes. His eyes were a dark red, and the color alone fascinated you. You have never seen anyone with red eyes. Red like roses...
It was then when you saw something you were not supposed to. Deep in his eyes, there was something...something that almost frightened you. But what was it?
“What is wrong?” he asked when you grew completely silent.
"It's nothing. You...you have beautiful eyes," you said, disregarding that overwhelming feeling of fear.
"As do you," he commented, and he even smiled.
His smile was brief as it was sad. It did not suit those eyes of his.
