I saw him at a funeral
I met him a week later at a party
Now he's at my school, and he seems bent on tormenting me

Lena Oxford was living a pretty normal life - or as normal of a life someone with her condition could- up until she attended her Mother's boss's funeral.
There she saw Aric, dressed in black with prominently haunted, unforgettable eyes.
What she least expected was to meet him months later at a party, noticeably high and with an entirely different disposition. It was that night that he kissed her, and it was that night that changed her life for the worst.
Now he's at her school, seemingly determined to make her life a dark, endless succession of misery.
Thrust into the seductive, unpredictable lifestyle that Aric assumes, Lena is now curious to know the mystery behind her new bully, though she soon realizes that what's hidden underneath may be too desolate, for both Aric and her, to handle.
