As time passed, it grew harder and harder to hide Nick and Joe's relationship from their parents. They had begun to hear rumors around the small town and confronting the boys who obviously denied. Nick began to become frustrated, snapping at anyone who bothered him, even Joe.
He was fiddling around with his guitar on his bed, trying to distance himself from his family. Nick's mom was giving the boys a weird look at breakfast this morning and him and her fought. He sighed heavily when he couldn't get a beat going and set his guitar aside before laying down and staring at the ceiling.
