A Hug For Your Thoughts (BoyxBoy)
❝He's a good kid.❞
❝He's a kind lad.❞
❝I don't know, he's really quiet.❞
❝He kind of creeps me out.❞
❝Why doesn't he ever talk?
It's fucking weird.❞
He's the talk of Tennerson, a small town constantly pelted by rain and chilled to the core. A town where everyone knew one another, a place with an abundance of social buzz around every corner.
But then, there's Emery.
A troubled soul, who hides from the gaze of others, and keeps to himself most of the time. An anxiety ridden spirit, who is very much an extreme opposite of those who lived there. Everyone talked, laughed, and were perfectly normal and quite accepted.
But not Emery.
He was quite the mystery.
And it was because of this, that Emery's name was mentioned in many conversations. Crude rumors were made up of his past and family, all trying to understand, or rather shun, the haunted and timorous young man.
A boy who felt, that as long as he kept to himself...
He would no longer be in pain.
A man who was also, quite the talk of the town, but for a completely different reason.
Professor Valastair is a name everyone knew, he was an extravagant and multitalented businessman. Not only was he a genius in the arts of literature and creative writing, but he was a man that created his own startup of University's across the states, a very successful 26 year old.
And he decided that his new launch of University facilities, VACW, would take place in minor cities and towns.
He was tired of the roar of loud crowds and constant press. He wanted to teach at his own University, and the kind and gentle town of Tennerson would be the perfect place to do it.
But when he meets Emery, his world slows to a halt.
Why do people pick on him so?
Why does he feel as if this boy, has never felt the warmth of kindness...
Julian was determined to understand the silent boy, and help him.
He wanted to show Emery,
What it is like,
To be loved.
