Just a Touch Away

“Nico! Don’t!” Jason stood a few feet away on top of an old abandoned roof. Nico just out of reach as he stood at the edge, getting ready to jump. Nico turns towards Jason, tears running down his face. “But I have to.”

“No you don’t. You don’t have to jump, Nico. What they said wasn’t true.” Jason tried to keep his voice calm, inching his way over to the other boy. “Everything they said was lies, Nico.” Nico shakes his head.

“No their right. I am worthless, a waste of space.”

Jason cuts him off. “You are none of those things.”

Nico either doesn’t hear Jason or ignores him. “I’m a horrible human. No one will love me. I’m a faggot. I can’t do anything right. I have no future left. No one wants to be around me. Everything they said was right, Jason.”

“Then prove them wrong.” Nico looks up at Jason in shock, tears still streaming down his face. “Don’t give into what they want. Show them you aren’t what they say you are.”

“But I know they are right. Why not save everyone the misery now and just die?”

“Because I know they are wrong. I know you will find someone that will love you with all their heart.” Jason looks away biting his lip. His voice was quieter then it has been since he got there. “I might not be able to return your feeling Nico, but I know there is someone out there who will love you. All of you. You flows and all.”

“I have no future. Even if someone did love me, they will hate me soon after. I have nothing to give in a relationship.” Jason looked up, eyes ablaze now.

“Who says you don’t have a future? That you have nothing to give?”

“Ever-“ Jason cut’s him off.

“Prove that they are wrong. You can do anything you want. Show them that you can be successful.”

“But father-“ Jason stops him a second time.

“Who cares what he thinks, what he wants you to do. You don’t have to take over his company if you don’t want to Nico. You can be a singer for all I care. Do what you want though. Show people you can do anything.” Nico just shakes his head and turns back towards the edge. Jason sighs quietly before walking the rest of the way to the edge and standing next to Nico.

“I have to, Jason. There is nothing left. I’m all alone.”

“You are not alone in this, Nico. You have friends who love you. A family who will miss you. Don’t do this.” Nico shakes his head, hair falling into his face. “Fine, then I’ll jump with you.”

Nico’s head shoot up, and looked over at the blond boy. “That way you won’t be alone.”

“But you have a future, a family, people who care about you. Don’t throw it all away.”

“I could say the same for you.” They fall into a silence. Nico looking down at the ground, while Jason looked out into the city. The sun slowly sinking. Finally in a quiet voice Nico asked, “But what if I fail. What if everything I work towards, falls?”

“Then I’ll be there to help put you back up. I’m always a text, a car ride, a touch away. I’ll always be there to help. You have others who will be there to help also. You are not alone in this, Nico.” Jason puts his hand out towards him. “Let’s go home.” Nico licks his lips and hesitantly took Jason’s hand. They walked off the roof and towards Jason’s car, on their way home.

farziex3: I think this novel is perfect because it had erotic, romance, and towards the end was a twist so I was just on the edge of my seat reading this book. It was honestly really amazing. I haven't found a book I actually liked to read for almost 2-3 years and this was a great book to start off. Makes ...

AnnaLucia: This fanfiction has an amazing plot. It's very different from the books, yet the author still managed to keep the personalities the characters had in the books. Your Alec and Magnus still are themselves, even though you created a different plot where Bane had to seduce Lightwood to get informati...

Bella_Lee_Taylor: the plot of the story is good and I can't wait to read the second book, but you need to check your grammar because as I was reading there were were important parts of the story some of the spelling and grammar were out of place and the way you you worded things can be better but I can see that th...

Dimplz: Severitus stories (Snape is Harry's Father/Guardian/Mentor) are a staple in the fandom and the quality of these stories vary wildly.. This was an absolute gem to read. The characters were excellently written and the story was very heartfelt.

RodRaglin: Your writing is very good, Rachel, but remember you also have to entertain the reader and in that regard it's a bit sparse in action and dialogue.Consider when revising...When starting a new story always consider your protagonist's Goal - what they want; Motivation - why they want it; and, Confli...

MissMadokaKaname: I was impressed and moved by this work. The characterization and dialog were strong, and really brought everyone in the story to life. Also, the setting was handled in a believable and compelling way. The story captured the complexities and pain of love, and also the harshness of living in such b...

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

Animeviewer: It is one of the best stories I've ever read. This story will have you riding a roller coaster of emotions and nearly dying to know what happens next.You will get very attached to the characters and in my case I relate well with some of their very traumatic or emotional experiences, Just Juliet f...

RedX9: I would love it if you would show how she is the bottom of the class. A paragraph alone isn't enough to show this.If she was such a screw up, how did she pass and graduate from the class. Are her teachers this lax that they would allow a screw up to graduate?I didn't understand the schooling syst...

Sandra Leigh: Sadly, the book left me wanting more. There are only 5 chapters and I want more! It is easily as good as The White Queen and The Other Boleyn Girl. I cannot wait for this one to be finished.

Anjali Roongta: Amazing story! Update soon?I love the way you show the relationship between James, Theo and Harry but would love to see characters apart from the main ones, characters such as Remus and Sirius and such and see their interactions with our favourite dimension traveler. Overall, a delightful read.
