How to Love and Lose a Jewel


Recovering from a "suicide attempt," per every health official he and his parents encountered, Demi-Ray Villa is back to dealing with life day to day. It's the only way he knows how to. Life isn't exciting, life isn't dramatic, and really, life isn't much of anything but the familiar. And as far as Demi-Ray is concerned, that's perfectly fine.
Then he came along; Jewel freaking Casanova.
Against better judgement, Demi-Ray makes it his mission in life to befriend the quiet, moody boy with skin the color of brown sugar. Only, how can he befriend someone that's just as screwed up in the head as he is? It's possible that two negatives can form a positive, right? And after almost losing himself, what more could he have to lose?
His name is Demitri-Raymond Castro Villa and this is how he loved and lost a Jewel.
