Niall Horan is just known as the 'nerd' in his high school. He gets picked on all the time and even gets beaten up once or twice a week. Or a day. His father is an alcoholic ever since his mother and big brother died in a car crash a few years ago. His father isn't even home most of the time. Only to ask Niall for money to go to the bar. Niall works at Nando's everyday after school. His boss, Paul, is basically more to a father to him then his actual one. When he doesn't have work, he still goes there just to talk to Paul. He works with his best friend Harry. They've known each other for years but Harry goes to a different school then him. He knows what happens to Niall, but Niall won't let him do anything about it. Niall also has one more problem... He truly, madly, deeply in love with the schools jock, Liam Payne.
