George is diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, a type of Autism. He has been going to a boy's boarding school since he was seven. The other boys bully him, and he can't control his emotions properly.

One day he meets the strange and mysterious Sam, the only boy he's really ever known who doesn't tease him or try to make him angry. So what will happen when George starts to fall for this wonderful and distant boy?


14. Sam

I cringe away, hoping he doesn’t take it badly. Suddenly, I’m falling, and a ghost of a scream creeps out. I squeeze my eyes closed, waiting for the ground to hit. A few seconds later, I open my eyes and look around. For the first time, I notice the hard arm behind my back, holding me softly.

                “How do you do that?” I ask him incredulously. His breath quickens.

                “I used to go to the gym every day after school. It helped me with my anger. Before my pa… parents packed me off to boarding school.” George answers quietly. I put my arms around his neck and pull him to the floor gently. I place my head on his chest and listen to the strong beating of his heart. I’m sure no one’s heart can beat like his. At this moment in time, it’s almost impossible to remember that he has Asperger syndrome. He is acting like an angel, like nothing could ever tear him down.

Except it can. The smallest thing can bring him down from the clouds, pull him back to being a young child. Not knowing how to react, how to deal with life. I pull him closer and crush him into me. He is my life now. And I’m his. There’s no question.


Later that night, I go back to school with him, wake Miss Palton to see her in a private room and explain everything to her. Towards the end, when we near the part where George’s parents split up (I find that out from Miss Palton), I see George’s eyes are shining wet and he’s biting his lip. He’s trying to hold back tears. I reach out and hold his hand. She understands immediately, telling us that we can stay in the isolation room in the infirmary because no one’s ill at the moment.
