Emory was one year ahead of Justin in school, but they were always best friends. He took AP and honors classes in science and math, and graduated among the top of his class. A lot of people see him as stoic and reserved, but also kind and respectful. He keeps quiet about his sex life, and as a result, he’s often mistaken as being inexperienced, though in actuality, he knows what he’s doing. Emory has a special family dynamic that’s explained in “My Gothic Boyfriend,” but the one he’s most secretive about is his paternal grandfather; you’ll find out why as you read the story.
