In my head, I see _him. _My very straight best friend. The one I will never have.
I’ve never felt like I fit in, but that changed the day I met him. Liam West. He was larger than life, even back when we were kids. He protected me from every awful thing life threw at me, but somewhere along the way my fascination with him turned into something _more. _Something filled with pain. I’ve tried to put distance between us, but it never works.
Liam will never let me get too far from him. All I can do is stay high enough to forget the hopelessness of it all.
Getting my life together hasn’t been easy. I work hard and take care of the people I care about, but the one person who matters the most is pulling away from me. My longest and only best friend. He’s becoming more and more self-destructive, and he expects me to turn the other cheek. Not happening.
Teddy has always needed me, and I’m starting to realize I might need him just as much, if not more.
