Above Them (boyxboy) || Part of the 'All The...
"W-Why?" I whispered through my tears.
"Because, love." Oli whispered in response. I felt his hands come to my cheeks, wiping the tears and raising my face to look at him. He smiled sadly down at me as I blinked through the tears.
"Because we're above them all."
Alexander King. He's a sweet, quiet, yet very sarcastic and smart-mouthed emo boy. And he's teased and made fun of, bullied daily. Why? Because of his sexuality. He was never accepted. Shunned and disowned by his parents. The only thing keeping him from suicide is his best friend, Mackenzie.
Then the new boy, the transfer student, Oliver Lewis, shows up. Of course, he's popular from the moment he steps into school. It's not like he tries to hide his sexuality; it's just that no one cares enough to realize it. And he tries befriending Alex. Which leads into something more... Complicated.
