Had I Known
Formerly: When We Were Strong
This story is under MAJOR editing - 1/1/18
Zack couldn't explain what had happened to have his parents become distant shells of once loving people. He didn't know what had happened, but from what he overheard, it mustn't have been a good thing. It's as if they knew something he did not, and he just wished they'd come out and say it then be cowards and hide it. What had bunched their nerves up this bad?
Then suddenly Zack faces a new face at school whose eyes watch him more often than not. He's unnerved, and with the pressure of his parent's sudden change of coldness, he honestly didn't know what to do.
At this point, he didn't realize the whirlwind coming for him and the truths that would soon crumble his world as he knows it.
