21 - 23 of 23 Works in Hitch Dreyse/Jean Kirstein
Jean Kirschtein never truly forgot Marco Bodt. Even as he watched the life he'd settled so comfortably into crumble to dust around him, even after his ill-fated relationship with his so-called girlfriend turns abusive, and even after he became so disenchanted with life he feels less human with each day; Jean never forgot Marco.
Now that he’s in college, Jean takes little interest in the humdrum of his everyday life. Utterly bored and stuck in a cycle of fulfilling nothing more than basic needs and completing coursework, Jean desperately craves something to break the painfully mundane routine. But life has strange ways of spicing things up. With the unexpected appearance of familiar freckles and a smile that sets his heart into overdrive, feelings buried long ago are unearthed in a collision of optimism and cynicism. After all, apathy doesn’t look good on anybody.
Just a short chapter to start off the series :)
Jean disappeared on his 18th birthday, just a few months before graduating high school. No one ever thought anything of it. Marco finds out exactly what happened to his ex-best friend six years later, the hard way; Tied up in a dark room with no memory of how he got there. It takes a lot of blood and tears to clear things up, but even then it doesn't make sense to Marco until he has someone else spell it out for him.
