I was living the epitome of an average life until last December. I had a new boyfriend, my older brother was predicted to make it to States for wrestling, and my ice skating secret was still very much intact. I was healthy. Normal. That is until my dads car slid off a bridge during a thunderstorm four days after Christmas.
The "new boyfriend" turned out to be an ex- abusive psychopath. My brother won states but ignored me for months for his own silent grieving, and the ice skating secret? Still a secret. But it doesn't seem as important as it was before.
A few months into her senior year, another wrestling legend, Maverick Wild, shows back up two years later after literally dropping off the radar. With him, he brings pain, secrets, and the strong will to keep his head above the water. Who would've guessed? Thalia seemed to carry the exact same load.
