Nate had loved her since the day he'd met her.



Alexia was pretty in a way that not everybody seemed to understand. Whilst the jocks and cheerleaders wouldn't give her a second pass, to Nate, she was the most wondrous girl he'd ever laid eyes on... But it wasn't just ๐™ฉ๐™๐™–๐™ฉ.



Alexia was clever, her mind working a mile a minute, often to the detriment of her mental health. She was vibrant, the kind of brightness that not only lit up a room but eclipsed it entirely.
