Tomorrow's Sorrow (Peterick)
After a situation goes sour, notorious thief, Pete Wentz is forced to go into hiding, but with a prized jewel in his possession and the police hot on his trail he becomes worrisome of his chances of getting out of it unscathed.
His old friend, Brendon, gets in touch with him at the right time, however, and Pete decides that it's in his best interest to hide out with him since this friend just so happens to live in a small town.
Pete is played off as Brendon's estranged cousin, but the townsfolk are weary of the newcomer despite Brendon's flawless reputation.
The plan goes smoothly at first, but Pete almost dies of boredom as soon as he arrives, so it's only matter of time before he becomes entranced by the only interesting form of entertainment: the town reverend's seventeen-year-old virgin son, Patrick.
Unbeknownst to the boy himself, his own innocent, curious gaze becomes the one thing Pete just can't seem to wiggle out of.
