"That's what I've been doing since I got here." He pulled out his smaller sketchbook and opened it. Inside were rough but very lovely portraits - One of Sinopa stretching her wings out on the cart, another of Justin, and one more - this one Diane. "I wanted to be able to represent you all as people, not savages. It'll take awhile, maybe... maybe even years to do it, but I'll do whatever I can."
I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!
You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!
