The many lies I said before

|"Isn't the most wonderful thing always the hardest to get?" She paused, "Love is that wonderful thing for me." Tears streamed down her face, and I knew the pain in her broken hand had nothing to do with it. I nodded, I knew what she felt, because for me she was that wonderful thing.| Misty Black has always had a rough life, her abusive mother the only parent she had and with her brother gone for college, it was only getting worse. She had thought it all changed the day she moved to Ohio, but in her senior year she realized that nowhere would accept her in the end. Xander Simmens was the ultimate bad boy, except he didn't want that title, sure he had almost killed a boy but that was normal. Right? He suffered everyday, at home was a drug-addicted mother and a murderous mobster father, at school were petty insults and fear-ridden looks, no one seemed to want to get close to him. He knew what title he wanted, and he didn't care if he lost everything for it, Misty's boyfriend. Together they fall, each mistake pushing them farther out of Sandton High's society, they only have each other, but Misty is harder to catch then it looks. Especially since she already loves another...
