Vic Fuentes is an oral deaf. Which means, he's deaf, but he talks. Only rarely to his choice. In his family, they treat him differently because of his hearing. They treat him like a baby, and he hates it. He talks to people by reading their lips. Vic is new to Mountain View High School. He had transferred because of a bullying situation.
Kellin Quinn, is the school clown. He'll make a joke here and there to lessen the beating might get from the school bullies. He gets picked on and called names, but hides that with a smile and a joke. He's that kid, the one that worries about everyone else but him.
Kellin accidentally bumps into Vic in the hallway and makes a joke looking at his shoes. Vic not hearing what he says asks him to repeat it. Will that one question bring them together?
(Of course it will, it's a fanfic.)
