**This story is, for the most part, still the same as before, however it was completely rewritten so some of the events and story lines have been changed. This story is also split into three parts.**
Part 1: The Months of Bliss
Part 2: The Arrival of a New Friend
Part 3: Breaking Down the Walls
Liam Parker is a lovable, over enthusiastic fifteen year old. With a wonderful family and best friend by his side, he considers himself the luckiest kid on the planet. On his second day of his freshman year, Liam meets Brody Hamilton, a recently out-of-the-closet senior. The two date for a few months until Liam finally learned the truth about Brody. After that he is never the same.
Three years later, Liam is no longer the lovable, enthusiastic fifteen year old. He is now a shy, introverted eighteen year old with depressive/anxiety stricken tendencies. A new student, Chase West changes everything for Liam. Trying and failing to keep his wall up, Liam is partnered up with Chase on a class project. They soon begin to grow closer as the days pass by. Can Liam keep his walls up or will Chase break them down?
