After years of living as a victim of domestic violence, Max has completely shut down. Can even his ex-boyfriend bring him back to life?

*****

After years of living in an abusive relationship, Max comes out as a broken shell of a person he used to be. He's unable to take care of himself, communicate with people or even be around them, and no one knows what happened to him. No one knows how to help him.

But his ex-boyfriend refuses to give up on him.



Warning! This story contains dark themes such as physical and mental abuse, and severe mental health problems, so this story is not suitable for everyone! These scenes occur as flashbacks so please read each chapter with caution!

Additional warning! This story is old. Older than my most, and also the only story I have never edited or fixed (except a minor typo sweep) so it's far from what you are used to read from me. It may be cringe, it's definitely not well executed, but I do hope you still enjoy it!

This story happens after The Life We Had (a "small" prequel for this story) but the details doesn't always match, so ignore that =') (Troy and Luke didn't exist when I wrote this, for example)
