【LGBT+ | Romance | Teen/YA Fiction】
Talented pianist Taylor James Ferguson is bisexual; motorcycling enthusiast Darko Ulyanov is gay. Both have feelings for each other, but neither are willing to admit it on the basis that they might ruin their life-long friendship. Over time, Taylor and Darko convinced themselves that the other is unquestionably straight - their forced acts of machoism brainwashing them.
They would never dare think about saying how they feel - until now.
Both final-year highschoolers are determined to be happy, and that eventually means coming clean to one another - but each has their own obstacles to overcome first. Religious parents, crippling fear, tragedy, blackmail and a pair of catty primadonnas stand firmly in the way of Taylor and Darko's happiness.
Will they ever tell each other everything, or will they be doomed to permanently keep a straight face?
(Based on true events. Currently in 1st Draft. 2nd draft coming soon, featuring improved spelling and grammar, more realistic and believable plotline, more (and improved) scenes, deeper character development and more!)
