Saved by a Kiss
"We don't see things the way they are. We see them the way WE are."
Rachel Wood has always had it all. Coming from a rich family, she has been given everything ever asked for, but knows better than to let the money get to her head. Instead, she wishes to help the less fortunate however she can... even if her parents aren't always happy about it.
Suddenly, she crosses paths with a stranger about to take his own life. Caught in the heat of the moment, she does the only thing she can think of to stop him... she kisses him. Unable to stop thinking about this intriguing stranger, she sets out to help him. She descends into this boy's world, but isn't prepared for the horrifying darkness of his life and childhood. The further she digs into his past, she begins to discover secrets and events that will shock her world to its core and forever change her perspective of the cruel realities of the world.
Rachel finds herself faced with one question - does she have what it takes to help heal this boy's wounds? Or is she in over her head and must face the fact that this boy might be damaged beyond repair and saving?
NOTE: Will have scenes of strong violence and language. It will not take up the entire story, but will be very important. There are also images used to show Derek's artwork originally located online. Since some are clearly hand drawn and created by various people, I feel it best to state I do not own or claim any belonging of these photos. They all belong to their respective owners.
