The Kids Aren't Alright [Slash] [BoyxBoy]
Here, you have two options: To search, or to settle.
When random marks appear on your skin, would you read into it, or pray it goes away? When purple flowers bloom on your wrist, do you watch or fill it in? And when your soulmate is searching for you, do you search or settle?
Levee Diaz, a settling, gender fluid teenager is just hoping to skid past high school and into college, so when the marks appear on his skin, he ignores them. But Olive Kelley won't give up. So he keeps drawing the carnations, over and over, from his arm to Levee's.
When Levee finds strange, searing marks on their leg, they're suddenly very interested in finding Olive, hoping to get to the bottom of his self harm. But Olive is now focused on very different things; His favourite place in the world is now being destroyed, the beauty ripped up and replaced with cobble drives and plaster walls.
Now separated by states and situations, Levee and Olive wonder if they'll ever meet, and solve the problems that continue to get worse.
