          I fell asleep in the arms of my companion of seven years one midsummer's eve in the year two thousand two and I dreamed of visitors coming to our planet millions of years ago. Most of us don't remember our dreams, but the next morning, my dream was still there. I immediately went to the computer and wrote of my dream. It was the crude beginning of the story that follows, a story of a sixteen year old boy struggling with the consequences of being the only "outted" gay person in his high school. The peer pressures leveled against him are enormous, as they must be for any youth in his situation. He found himself to be segregated, isolated, and alone. He was forced to deal with ridicule and even physical violence. Whatever self-esteem he had was slowly eroded away. It's no wonder that the suicide rate for gay teenagers is so high. Kids can be particularly mean, especially toward kids that are different.

          Like any author, I have relied on past experiences to draw from while writing this story. It is entirely a work of fiction. There is a mixture of personality traits of people I have known, but in no way does any character truly reflect any one real life person. This story does involve graphic descriptions of sex between two gay teenage boys. If that offends you, then you should not read it. Any similarity to any real person is purely coincidence.

          This story is the merging of my dream of visitors to our planet and the challenges that face our main character. It is a story of first love. It is also a story of the struggle for dominion by several different groups of people. It is a story of loss, tragic loss. It is the story of hate, albeit misguided hate, still pure and simple hate. And it is the story of a love so powerful that it overcomes all odds. The adventures that follow tell of an ordinary high school boy finding himself in extraordinary circumstances.

          The writing of this story started in June 2002 and ended in March 2003. Proofreading by Davin and Cody, who were also assisted along the way by Charlie, Jeff, Jeff, Ashley and Jack. Technical guidance by Paul. Without the expertise, friendship, encouragement, guidance and love of these very special people, this story would not be what it is today. Please enjoy.
