Summary: Jensen spends his life hiding who he is from the family that would never accept him if they knew. When he’s uprooted in the middle of his senior year and suddenly becomes the new kid, his carefully placed mask begins to slip. Especially when he meets Jared – a loud, outspoken spectacle of a boy that fights for everything Jensen was taught to stand against. Jared has no problem going after what he wants, and now it’s just a matter of Jensen letting himself do the same.
Notes: Massive amounts of love go out to my incredible beta kamikaze_redux. I think I owe her my first born for this one, seriously. This story is dedicated to both her and the always amazing starweather. Any art you see throughout this story is all her. ♥
