“He’s the one for me,” she slowly utters, struggling to control her tone.
But he perceives beyond her words for his senses pierce through her mortal flesh and see her words and her heart’s desire go to war.
In that moment, not taking in what she says, he comes closer and whispers to her, “I know I can treat you better…better than he can.”
A sketch narrative inspired by Shawn Mendes’ ‘Treat You Better’.
