Take Me Away (BoyxBoy)(#Wattys2015)
There's no hint of light at the end of the tunnel and he's been so hurt for so long.
In Ares' mind, personal demons lurk urging him to end it.
End the beating he gets from his abusive parents.
End the the bitter flashes of memories of his dead best friend Mason.
End his futile attempts at living.
Everyday life for him is a part of this nightmare that just keeps repeating itself, with his psychotic mind taking over him without warning.
Giving up seems to be Ares' only option as of this moment.
To end it all once and for all, to get rid of these demons tormenting him day in and day out.
He tried to end it, but in that too, he failed.
Now inside the walls of a psychiatric hospital where he was expected to find himself and get better, he found him. Alex, a young doctor, gave Ares a reason to stay, to live.
Will Alex save him? Will Ares let him?
