Psychotic. Unhinged. Certifiable.
It’s nothing Aston St. James hasn’t been called before.
Abandoned on the steps of a church when he was only a day old, it’s been one losing battle after another as he was chucked from one broken system to the next.
He’s accepted his terrible lot in life.
Relishes in it, even, especially after that night six years ago, when his entire life was upended with one single, irredeemable act.
Not that Aston wants to be redeemed.
No, no, everything they say about him is true.
He just wishes it hadn’t cost him one of the few good things he had in his short life:
His foster brother, Vale DuPont.
Never did he think he’d see his quiet little mouse again.
But when a chance at a normal life comes a-knocking, leading him into the old halls of Grady Preparatory Academy, it would seem fate is far from done with them.
And Vale is far from that quiet little boy Aston once vowed to protect.
If only the big, bad quarterback was as happy to see him as he was…
And didn’t have secrets of his own that threaten to unravel everything.
Scurry, scurry, little mouse.
You know I’ll always find you.
