Jet is different. Able to feel the emotions of those around him, he chooses to spend his days in solitude, pushing out the feelings that attempt to consume him. With numbness his only relief, he's surprised when he finds himself letting someone in, actually wanting - craving - to feel what she feels.
Even though he was warned to stay away from Kalista LaFontain, Jet didn't listen, not caring what family she came from, knowing she wasn't like them. Somehow, she was able to make the emotions that assaulted him on a daily basis more bearable, a pleasant contrast to his usual numbness. He didn't care how powerful or hated her family was - he'd risk it.
Little did he know, that risk would change his life forever.
