Willow's life was turned upside down after her father suddenly dies from lung cancer. After being raised by a single parent who couldn't afford to feed her daughter for 3 years, they were both forced to move in with her sister miles away from their original home.
6 years later, she's a senior at her local high school, sitting in the back of the class like a cliche loner yet spitting some fiery comebacks to the students who think they could try and bring her down, much to their surprise. She was the one who drew on all her handouts, doodled on every desk she sat at, and owned a graffiti-covered locker, which she 'didn't do.' Willow thought not speaking to many people outside her circle of friends and getting to class before the bell rang would be enough to keep herself out of the spotlight.
But little did she know that she caught the eye of someone.
Ashton, or more commonly known as Ash, is the guy who could buy the entire city of Bridgton, yet couldn't come up with the confidence to tell the entire world. Feeling the pressure from his parents to become a successful doctor who travels around the world to treat patients from all over, the stress started to build atop his shoulders. He retreated to a well-known group located within the city who practically did anything for a cent; things that would land the boys in prison with a lifelong sentence. There he became the Ash only he and his buddies would ever see. Ash thought this was his true self; a reckless and carefree teen who went home and pretended to be interested in the Gala's and random dinner parties his parents would host.
The only time he got to see his true colors was whenever he saw Willow every day at school.
DISCLAIMER: this story starts off slow but I promise it will get better with time and patience, so don't give up half-way through the second chapter.
Editing: 8/25/18 - probably forever, so expect minor mistakes.
