Category: Teen Fiction
Nolan, an unapproachable guy who ignores the existence of all his schoolmates, sleeps in all of his classes. Normally, this wouldn't be Chelsea Arnold's problem--she does her best to pay attention in class and attends gym like a good, normal student.

Unfortunately, she just so happens to be his assigned desk partner in many classes. She's frequently forced to wake him in English class and ends up earning the unofficial title of Nolan's Wake-up Alarm--a title that nobody in the entire school covets. The last thing she wants is to interact with him more than she absolutely has to. One day, their gym teacher sends her to bring him back to class, which he always skips for some reason. When she accidentally shines her flashlight in his sleeping face, it triggers a chain of events that gradually intertwines their lives together.

It's hard to be a normal student when you start befriending the school oddball. It doesn't help that he has more secrets than the Big Ben has stairs.

Full of some of my kinks, might make some gay lemons, maybe some futa stuff if im feeling especially horny that day.I tend to go very slow in my lemons, and ill only go really fast if that seems like something my character would like. I also dont like doing the Y/ N shit, so I'll either never mention the name, or just pick a random name out of a template online.Or maybe do a Character X Character... Who knowsI'll take requests if they sound good. Though I'll only do characters I know, mostly cause I like to make their personality fit into my lemons. Also, ill only do requests I like.Oh yeah, I actually do write some shit. Over on W3bnovel by the name of Void_Eagle1230. Currently on hiatus, just writing whenever I feel it.
