Okay.. here, FINALLY.. is.. *blinks* well, okay, it's definitely not a drabble anymore, but I didn't type it out in MS Word first, so I have no idea how many words. Enjoy.

Monocles were useful things. They could help you see, for one. Not that that was why Hakkai wore his - not much could help the ruined ball of scar tissue that was his right eye - but that was an easy thing to let people believe. Oh, it still looked like a proper eye and would move and blink like the working one, but the best it could manage on a good day was fuzzy shadows.

No, the monocle didn't help him see. Quite the opposite, actually. It stopped other people from seeing in. If tilted at precisely the correct angle (an angle Hakkai had mastered within a week of getting the monocle) the clear glass coud flash as opaque as stone. Hakkai rather liked that about it, as if it were somehow poetic that something meant to aid in seeing should hinder it instead.

Of course, no one really looked at Hakkai anymore. They knew what they would see - a flash of a smile and a tilt of the head at that perfect angle - and Hakkai liked it just fine that way.
