I'll Be There
"It's okay," he murmured softly. He pulled my body closer to his, kissing my forehead sweetly. "It's okay."
Finley Blake. Daughter of Georgia and Jameson Blake. Sister of Flynn, Felix, Malachai, Jesse, Jacelyn, and Jo Lynn Blake. With a house filled with nine people, it's easy to go unnoticed. Not that Finley cares, she hates attention. Finley lives in her own bubble of misery, battling her mental wars each and every day, struggling to appear normal on the outside. She hides everything with large t-shirts, a veil of hair, and a smile. But when the most well-known, vague guy in town notices her, she doesn't know how to react.
Axel Luna's noticed Finley a few times when they were younger but quickly forgot about her when she sunk into the crowds, attempting to be overlooked. He's not sentimental, he barely shows up for school on certain occasions, and if you so much as look at him the wrong way, there are consequences. But something about Finley reminds him of his happier times. He may just be the only person who truly sees her suffering. And he wants to help.
Late night talks, surprise kisses, lingering touches, and shuddering sobs; This is the story of pain, guilt, love, and friendship.
