Excited to no longer just be squealing over this story with @pocketsofdaisy and finally share it! This was such a fun project to work on and I tried and learned a bunch of new visuals that I'm also excited to share here.

Happy to have you along for the ride 🛵🥰

—And the inevitable end of their dream with it.

#mydaywRen #mymanip #reyloart #bensolo #rey Image
67/ She doesn’t want to leave. Even though she knows she hast to.

He doesn’t want to let her go. Even though he knows he has to.

But for 20 more minutes, it’s just them. No obligations.

Just this.

#mydaywRen ImageImage
68/ Every touch of her lips is a spark of life. A ray of sunshine. A reminder that her brilliance is unmatched—

—and Ben can’t help but think how lucky he is to be allowed to bask in it for just this one day.

#mydaywRen ImageImageImage
