    Summary

    I always believed that my life begun the day that I met you Harry, I believed that up until that point, all I was, was insignificant. A mindless wanderer passing through life, casting my shadows upon hallways and broken-down furnishings. I believed I had no purpose, and I would become a burden to society as my father had done before me. I know deep down that is why my mother left me. I know you continuously say that she was at a losing battle with her own mind, but I can't shake the feeling that maybe the demons in her head had no comparison to the one that was sleeping beside her.

    I wished it wasn't that way, I had hoped I was destined for better things, but I didn't have the greatest of teachers, until you. But not even you, Harry, could have prepared me for the lessons I would soon learn, the day she was brought into our lives.

    Our daughter.

    She's ours Harry.

    I craved to give her a better upbringing than I ever had, see things in such a brighter light. Maybe she would be destined for great things, who am I kidding, of course she will be, she is Harry's child after all. But with chaos slowly unfolding around us the week before her birth, I was naive to think I could shelter her from the darkness.

    Summary

    "Louis William Tomlinson, how many times have we had this conversation? When are you going to grow up and realise that the world does not revolve around you? People are getting hurt by your actions, there are consequences Louis for what you are doing. When are you going to realise?"

    I hear mum screaming at me from across the other side of the kitchen as she reads the letter sent home to her by my teacher. I was in another fight, and apparently flunking another class, didn't know about that one, but apparently, turning up to mathematics is a requirement. It isn't just enough to pass the quizzes, they want you to attend as well, it's a joke.

    I stare at her confused. "What are you saying?"
    "Campbell College said they would be delighted to have you Louis" she sighed.
    My blood boiled. "What the fuck? Boarding School!" I shout.

    Summary

    Louis Tomlinson was always a bright kid with a big happy family, he had life plans and a happy childhood. He had a beautiful house that felt like home with an entire army of people to fill it up with everyday. His life was perfect from anyone's perspective. There were straight A’s, family dinners and family activities every sunday. It was one of his favorite things about his life. He always had people there to support him and he was always kept on track, always a happy go lucky kid and it would always stay that way. As long as he had his family, there was no way he could regret any decisions he had made because his mum would always be there to hold him and tell him that everything would be alright. She would help him fix his mistakes. He was always accepted for who he was. But one day all of that was ripped away from him, now the only things that he had going for him was dark under eye bags, an eating disorder and a serious drug addiction. All he wanted was for his mum to come back and show up next to this terribly uncomfortable and stained bed and tell him that he would be alright, that he would be okay and that he would find a home, find his sisters, kick his diseases. But she wasn't, she was no longer here.

    Summary

    It’s been almost half a century since a painful disease wiped out half of the world’s population. It is now up to the world’s younger generations to save the human race – the government have deemed it mandatory that all teenagers, male and female, be paired at the age of eighteen. The goal for each couple is to produce at least one child in three years, with failure to co-operate bearing serious consequences.

    Florence Powell, an emotional young girl with a passion for painting and literature, is thrown into a world of unconditional love and tormenting pain. She is paired with somebody she has already deemed deeply insufferable; her high school’s coldest heartthrob. Faced with the prospect of raising a child with somebody that finds her as intolerable, can she learn to love him? Or will she be sent to the outskirts of the city, to live with those that do not co-operate?
