    Summary

    The first time it happens is because of a nightmare. Normally, when Andrew wakes up in the night, skin feeling raw and throat hoarse from a withheld scream, he can’t stand to be touched. He’ll retreat for a cigarette before curling back under the covers, Neil always at his side but never touching.

    But tonight is different. There aren’t any phantom hands clawing their way through his dreams. He jolts awake with the words Thank you, you were amazing echoing in his thoughts.

    Summary

    Neil Josten survived by listening to his mother's voice, echoing through his mind, her determined stare behind his eyelids every time he blinked.

    Don't stop running. Don't look back. Don't get attached.

    It's been five months since Neil was put into witness protection following his father's death by his uncle's hands, and Neil is slowly relearning how to be a human being.
    (And if accidentally meeting a small indie band at a bar helped him along the way... well, there were some things his mother wouldn't find out.)

    Summary

    "Even when I turn away I can't unsee it," Aaron continued, his back to the rest of them, "It's disgusting."

    ...

    Neil follows Kevin's advice and agrees to be part of an ad campaign for Exy shoes. This ends up with Neil's face on an eight-hundred-foot-wide moving billboard, and he's not at all sure what to make of it. Neither is everyone else. Especially when Andrew notices everything.
