What’s going on in the original art? Helen is living in Hicksville (a suburb of Boringburg, USA) and is moving to Paris to study—leaving behind her boyfriend Steve.

She’s going to be gone for years and can’t ask him to wait.

So they’re breaking up (she thinks.)

But, before she leaves, Steve grabs her and kisses her one last time.

Later, Steve shows up in Paris sporting a French accent, a beret and a marriage license. But that’s a story for another time.
