    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?

    Summary

    He hadn’t let a single tear slide for the longest time and it took the briefest of conversations for River to have him brushing several away. The power River so easily held over him, yet so delicately as if he knew how precious the gift was, and he didn’t want to abuse it. Payton contemplated how many extra layers he needed to add to his wall today, in preparation for River. Ordinarily, he stood by his routine five, however, he felt more would be unfortunately necessary.

    He spent the next fifty-six minutes applying each layer of mortar and slowly adding brick after brick. Unbeknownst to him that he would be the one to break them all down.
