the truth and the lie by erebun the truth and the lie by erebun
The grotesque creature found something peculiar, a magical mirror. When the creature looked into the mirror, it saw a reflection. It was a beautiful image emerged on the surface. Enchanted, without realizing it was a mere illusion, the ugly truth fell in love with the beautiful lie.

sorry I'm not good at writing, I tried to draw a really ugly creature but nope haha, I hope you like it anyway ;w;

I don't think he is ugly at all. He is rather beautiful.

Beauty is a matter of perspective, what is beautiful to one may be ugly to another, and vice versa. I think it has a lithe kind of beauty, and yet seems so sad.
