Jade and Julien. Best friends forever.

Or at least, that's what she thought.

It has been two years since the day that Julien moved back to Paris with his family after living next door to Jade for six years. They were best friends - joined at the hip.

Julien left  without a word of goodbye and to this day, Jade can't stop thinking about the reason why.

Two years pass and now Jade is not the same Jade. Not without Julien. She's sarcastic and has trouble coping with life in general, but one day a familiar set of azure eyes looks up at her and her heart stops beating.

It's Julien.

Or at least, she thinks - he looks so different. 

After two years of not being able to call him or find him on social media, Julien is back and just like Jade, life has changed him. 

Once, they were best friends - nothing could come between them. 

But now, Jade finds that Julien is just somebody that she used to know...

Doesn't mean she's going to stop trying to find the old Julien. Even if she has to beat it out of him. 

Julien isn't the sweet boy she remembers. He's all muscle and tattoos with a death glare that could make anyone flinch - except her.

She is desperate to make him listen, but he doesn't want anything to do with her. He wants to finish senior year and get the hell out. 

Games are being played,  both of them trying to one up the other on a quest to see who breaks first but the tension that comes with it is daunting.

Will the tension between them last? Or will it all come crumbling down into a heated confession that leaves both of them stunned into silence?

This story is going to be a bit heartbreaking to read at first but like all my works, it will leave you with tears of joy. 

So grab your nutella and kleenex bc this one's going to be a good one. Maybe slightly cliche but that's sort of what i'm going for :)
