Loving You Hurts
*Slowly posting rewritten chapters and new chapters.*
Clinton Jones just wanted someone to love him, to wish him a happy birthday and let him know that he was wanted. His foster parents, the Michaels, weren't very nice people. The only reason they took Clint in was for the cheque they received from the government, so ultimately his birthday wasn't something they celebrated or kept track of. Then their was school -- no friends, a crush who made fun of him, and homework he had no one to help him with. He was on his own. That wasn't so bad most days, he could survive until he was eighteen and out of the system. But then one poem, one admitted secret, lead to a world of heartache, and suddenly being alone was dangerous. When you're alone, there's no one to stop you from making a horrible mistake.
Dimitri Langford just wanted to have fun, to hang out with friends and be liked by everyone. He didn't always like what his friends did, but he told himself not to get involved. Having his friends like him was more important than standing up for some random kid who looked and smelled like he was homeless, and had social skills of that of a mouse. That is, until he was confronted with the consequences of his actions.
Two boys, one sweet sixteen gone sour, and the unexpected events that followed.
