Last year, Leon and Ivy made a truth pact. They swore to tell each other the absolute truth. Leon was the only person at school who knew about the eviction and homelessness. Ivy trusted him absolutely. Unlike her other friends, she knew Leon would never judge her. His family had gone through hard times, too.
