❝It's so amazing what a person can do just by leaving.❞

PARIS KESSLER texts Hannah Rod, drunk, mistaking her as his ex-girlfriend, and gets roasted after refusing to believe he's texting a wrong number. Annoyed next day, he refuses to stop bothering her. The two continue texting, their cold conversation slowly turning warm and light, making a bond between the two. However, the world turns sideways after Paris confesses something that's twisted enough to change their lives.

Light and dark, this is a story that proves what a simple leaving can change someone, or everyone.
