Thank you guys SO much for your reviews on the first five chapters! I am both shocked and thrilled by the response! I was kind of nervous about posting this story, so I'm so excited people are liking it so far! This chapter (along with the next few) is in Nick's point of view, so now you start getting his side of the story. ;) Enjoy!

I'm SO sorry for the delay on this story, especially in the month it's featured. Fail! I've been working on my collaboration, "Song for the Undead," and just don't have the time to focus on two stories at once. I'm back into this one for the time being, though, so hopefully you'll get another update soon. Thanks for sticking with me! :)

I am SO SORRY it's been over a month since the last update! I had a serious block on this story that I'm going to blame on sexy shirtless Nick and NKOTBSB. I finally got over it and finished this chapter, so hopefully the block is behind me. Not sure it's worth the wait, but hope you enjoy the update!
