"I can't possibly describe the effect that a simple smile had on his face. I can try, but even now I know I won't do it any justice. Because when he smiled, he showed all his teeth - like a wolf - but it was inexplicably innocent, free from ferocity. When he smiled, there was a light in his eyes that didn't usually occupy his visage. When he smiled, his dimples were deep, like laugh lines, and I saw the missing tooth at the back of his mouth and the hidden laughter he had bottled up for years."
