Preface:

There is a boy. Beaten down with words and shoves. Desperately wanting to prove he belongs and to cherish all he's found.

There is a girl. Bounced from place to place, never finding home. Wanting to nurture and plant routes so strong, all can bloom.

There is a boy. Burdened with feeling things so deep all he can see is how he must protect, but he can't see where he is going.

And there are the ones that love them.

And further, there are the secrets of how they started, and what connects them.
