She’s beautiful like a model, but she’s been through too much, leaving her empty inside. A “void” is what they called it there, and she’ll do everything she can to fill it. He hasn’t spoken to her, but he knows enough about her to know that if he could give her what she needs, it would mean more than it coming from some stranger.
