AU where MC and Damien are college sweethearts who first met when they were assigned to each other as roommates.
But when a misunderstanding leads to a messy breakup, they both go their separate ways, and that’s the last they see each other for ten whole years.
Then, fate throws them back together when MC moves to Maple Bay, and he and Damien are reunited in the principal’s office of the elementary school after 6-year-old Amanda punches Lucien in the nose on her very first day of school after he makes fun of the way she laughs.
By the time the parents arrive at the school though, Amanda and Lucien have already made up and are apparently best friends ever now (Lucien is impressed at how strong Amanda’s punch was, and Amanda forgave him when she found out what a cool last name he has).
Over the next few weeks, in between setting up playdates and planning days out together at the zoo or the amusement park, Damien and MC slowly start falling for each other.
The only complication?
They hadn’t spoken to each other since before they had both transitioned, so neither of them recognizes each other as their ex.
