A boy named Darius can never fully trust anyone. His experiences made him who he is. His trust has been betrayed time after time by friends and families. Even through the pain, he still cared for everyone and never wanted to see anyone else suffer like it. He cared for them, but a burden was left on his shoulder when seeing people move on happily without him. He felt unimportant and felt as if he was easily replaced. He began to believe that love was a lie. “I love you” is a curse to Darius.
