In the West Midlands small town of Windfield Green, being gay is something of a rarity. For Nick Davis, the idea of coming out feels like a death sentence, and things only become more difficult when he falls in love with his best enemy, the popular and good looking Dave Thompson.
This story has been slightly reworked for quality and also consistency with the sequels.
Nick and Dave are off to college, but sadly not the same one. While Nick is attending Sapswell with all their friends from secondary school, Dave is commuting every day to Dorcrest Independent College. Staying together when you have to work to see each other every day is hard, especially when a new activity takes over much of Nick's spare time, namely his new rock band.
After failing his exams, Nick has dropped out of college and is working part time at a supermarket. With just his music to sustain him emotionally, he turns to other means to help him cope. Dave returns to Dorcrest Independent College to complete is A-levels, and is trying to move on with his life, but that's not so easy when he has such a hard time letting go.
