Luke’s crush Sawyer asks him out after the final exams are over. Which was for the better, because Luke couldn’t get the courage to do so himself. And over the first few months of them being boyfriends, Luke truly falls in love with his boyfriend. But there’s always something gnawing in the back of Luke’s mind and the meeting with Sawyer’s parents might just be what makes it clear what it is.
