Sonya ♥s Leonard: A Drabble

Sonya had bad taste in men. She couldn’t help it. Something about bad boys intrigued her. She knew the distance they kept was a defense mechanism, the anger in their eyes a mask to hide the pain. She wanted to save them – from themselves, from women who didn’t understand them, from the world that had been so careless with their delicate hearts. Her friends didn’t understand the attraction. Couldn’t see in any of them the things that were so obvious to Sonya. They’d hated poor Harry. Been awful to Luke.
