High School AU with no supernatural elements, in which Eleven comes from an abusive family, and Mike having met her after she runs away after turning 12 years old (prologue), and again when she comes to live in Hawkins almost three years later.
Notes: My 5th fanfic (It's been years and the others are on Fanfictiondotnet). An outlet for the lemonade in my head, but an honest attempt at an entertaining story that admittedly devolves into some smuttiness. Please R&R. I love talking about characterization and stuff, and will probably interact with commenters.
