is the kind of guy you never know if he’s one of the good kids or the bad kids.
Never pays attention in class, but gets good grades; everybody knows him, but
he’s got like only one close friend; hot as hell, but never really pays
attention to anybody for more than a minute. That is, until one day.

takes one “accidental” meeting in the corridor, one “casual” lunch date outside
and one awkward kiss behind the gym, and they’re both done for. They claim it
wasn’t love at first sight, but no-one believes them.
Bodhi’s step sister and Cassian’s best friend, it is rather the opposite. Jyn
and Kay dive head-first into a passionate affair of mutual loathing. It takes them

from where Cassian has begun his police training. It doesn’t take long until Bodhi

comes home with a piece of paper that says ‘Captain
