Christopher was abused as a child. His father was a drunk and constantly beat and sexually assaulted him, leaving him fearful and timid around any men in his life. When he realized that he was gay, it terrified him. He can hardly stand to be in the same room alone with any guys, let alone have a relationship.
He's been bullied his entire life at school, and now that they know that he's gay, the hits that he always takes become daily. Now entering his senior year of high school, Chris is miserable and even suicidal.
Then Jason changes everything. It's the very first day of school, and Chris is in the middle of taking yet another beating, when Jason comes in. Chris passes out before he can see what happens, but all he knows is that when he wakes up he's in Jason's arms, and he panics.
If there's any hope of saving Chris, then he'll have to confront his demons, and let the one person who really cares confront them with him. But what if the one he trusts... Isn't even human.
