Not knowing what to really do, Ashton tries to go on with his life, but always has Sven in the back of his mind. The only the reason Ashton thinks he's not already six feet under is because something keeps stopping him when he has tried numerous times to kill himself.

With no friends and a family that doesn't care about him could, Sven be the reason he is still alive or just be the last person in the final chapter in his life. Sven is immediately infatuated with the cute, shy and unexplainable Ashton. Can Sven help the depressed, broken Ashton or will he lose the only man who ever caught his eye? And maybe his heart.
