The Boy with Red Eyes
What happens when a church loses sight of its true purpose and adopts a cult-like mentality, acting without reason? A boy like Leon is created. Leon never asked for red eyes, but now they are the curse that plagues him, the reason an entire town has been poisoned into hating him, having long forgotten why they started hating him in the first place. He has suffered every day, never knowing kindness from even his own mother, until the day a young boy named Chris showed up. Now Chris finds himself in Leon's world, trying to help him while resisting being pushed away and playing by Leon's rules to remain safe. In this fight he finds himself questioning where the line of right and wrong is truly drawn and why an entire town can hate someone whose worst crime is being born with red eyes. As allies and enemies are identified, Leon finds his life changing rapidly but is unable to shake the feeling that battle lines are being drawn and the worst is yet to come.
