Although privileged, he lived quite a dysfunctional home. His parents often fought and had affairs throughout his childhood. As a boy, he sought refuge at his best friend's home to escape his troubles. There he experienced normal. There he learned what a real family was like. There he met the most delicate soul in the form of a beautiful girl. and he swore to protect it.
Jared has never been interested with Josh's little sister, yet he cared for her more than anyone he has ever known. Before leaving for college, he accepted a stupid bet. To prove that Scarlett didn't have a crush on him, Josh dared him to kiss her!
The whole thing ended with a severed friendship and a broken heart. Scarlett promises to never forgive him and Jared is utterly devastated with guilt.
Two years later, Jared finds Scarlett attending his University. And to his surprise, she is not that humble, or kind little girl he once remembered.
