Erisen Renstread views himself as the ugly gay boy in high school who hides in the shadows. Painful memories and sadness always fill Erisen's mind. Nothing numbed the sensation of hopelessness that took over his body and soul. When he walks into class one day to see his monstrous English teacher replaced with a handsome young man, he wonders if the hopelessness could be conquered. Taking the chance, Erisen starts to realize that coming out of the darkness he secluded himself in would be healthy but not easy. He didn't expect to have such a huge impact on his teacher's life as much as he had on his own. Erisen starts to learn that life is a complex bastard that can be hard to get through; however, putting up a fight to see the light at the end of the tunnel is worth it, and that it is possible. The only problem was the lack of effort he was putting towards the battle he was loosing. Sometimes he just thinks he should give up.
