Jayden's time at the lake with his friends had been magical. He had spent the night in the same bed as his boyfriend, twice, and absolutely no one had judged him for it. Hell, he was still surprised he even had a group of friends who wanted to hang out with him at all. He had been told he was unlovable for so long, he had believed it. But no, there was a group of people who had invited him to stay with them for the entire weekend without a break. He didn't just have one friend to guard him against the sea of people who might harm or insult him. No. There was a veritable army of people on his side and he was starting to truly believe they cared for him.
Everything in his life was going so well, the thought of restricting food, which always lurked in the back of his mind, somewhere dark and twisted, hadn't occurred to him once.
"I'm home!" Jayden called out, dropping his bags by the door. He didn't even bother to conceal his ear-to-ear smile.
