A sorta quick fanart for one of my favorite local comic book series, Trese. Trese is available in Amazon outside the Philippines. It’s written in english so it’s accessible to non-filipino readers. (It has lots of filipino mythology in it and I’m not bragging but our mythology is pretty cool too. Also Alexandra is a bamf protagonist who will not take any of anyone’s crap.)
Pictured here are Alexandra Trese and her half-aswang bodyguards, Crispin and Basilio.
He had always wanted to dance with her. It didn’t matter if it was some Chasind dance or something he had to perform in a ritual. The desire was always there, but the chance never came. And knowing Morrigan, he knew the chance would never ever come.
Yet he takes her hand into his as the first notes of a dance rings throughout the ballroom. Amusement quickly colors her features to which he replies with laughter.
“We’re in Orlais. No one knows us here. No one will judge.”
“I do not dance, warden.”
“Humor me,” he whispers, “just this once.”
For a moment, she is quiet. Then she smiles that smile she never shows anyone but him.
“You are impossible,” she says as her fingers slide in between his.
