Why him? Of all people why a German commander? What is it with him that I can't take my eyes off him?

My chest tightens, I can't seem to breathe and my heart beats so loudly in my chest that I swear he must hear it. I try to breathe normally even as I break out in a sweat.

I force myself to look into his eyes. Those eyes with their all-knowing, all-seeing hazel depths. What a wealth of expression is to be found there.

He looks at me and I know surely he sees right through to my heart.
