    Summary

    Will Byers was so skeptical about the move, deep down he knew he needed a fresh new start, away from his friends who were distancing themselves, and especially away from Michael Wheeler, his first love. He was sure he wasn't in love with the boy anymore, but his heart still hurt from their constant arguments and the words he had yelled at Will in the rain that night.
    All of Will's anxious thoughts were shifted as he met a new person, someone who looked cunning and had piercing dark eyes that could rip his soul to shreds.

    Summary

    The truth is, Will wouldn't know what an actual normal person does, not really. The word normal has become a thing of the past, an outdated word that's been permanently torn from his vocabulary.

    Will Byers hasn't known normal for years. Not since that damn spider bit him.

    And just when Will thinks he's finally figured out this whole superhero life, here comes Mike Wheeler, ready to prove him wrong.
