    Summary

    Payton just broke up with Alice, and that got him the much needed points to the student presidency. But so did Astrid. Both sitting in the fence, both needed something, or someone to distinguish them. And that's how Payton Hobart ended up dating River Barkley, Astrid's ex. Well at least fake dating. (But River doesn't know that yet. And Payton doesn't plan to tell him anytime soon.)
    -
    also known as: the one where payton dates river for political gain.

    Summary

    when payton hobart's competition in the race to become student body president attempts suicide, there's an awful little part of him saying he should be relieved. okay, not so little. after all, his competitor was just that. competition. and popular competition at that.

    but it isn't that simple. because the boy who attempted suicide is river barkley - payton's crush, mandarin tutor *and* his threat to the presidency, and payton isn't ready to let him go yet. even if it means giving up everything.

    ---

    or, what would've happened in the politician if river never died?
