August 101: Photo inspiration model Bernardo Velasco
Kensie was the original character to plague my mind. When I thought about what guy would be perfect for her I developed August Hunter. He had to be her perfect compliment maintaining the same morals and values Kensie set for herself, yet he had to be her opposite in ways that challenged Kensie to grow and step out of her comfort zones.
August grew up at an early age. He was faced with decisions and circumstances that teenagers just shouldn’t and don’t usually have to face. These experiences though difficult and painful, helped mold him into the man Kensie falls in love with. He is responsible and grounded, and he is fiercely devoted to those he loves. Most notably, he knows what he wants in life and harbors no hesitations in getting that, including Kensie.
August’s deep voice and stellar good looks are what first caught Kensie’s attention. He stands around six foot three and has a lean muscular build. He doesn’t work out often, but keeps in shape keeping up with the kids at the youth center he works at. His dark brown hair is cut short and compliments his warm brown eyes. What really captures Kensie is his smile. It’s a smile that lights up his whole face while simultaneously lighting up the room.
Truth, love finds you.
Truth, love leads you.
Truth, love heals you.
Truth, love breaks you.
