Aliece and Michael are current college students in North Jersey. They have been dating since April 2016, but they have known each other since January 2016. Aliece met Michael when he was hired as a bus boy at the restaurant that she worked at. After a few minutes of talking, the two realized that they had been attending the same college for the past five months, yet they'd never seen each other. Aliece felt an immediate attraction towards Michael, but kept it to herself as he already had a girlfriend. After Michael and his girlfriend ended their relationship, he and Aliece waited about two months before pursuing a relationship. After only a week of dating, the two experienced a few hardships that left the two feeling trapped and depressed. Their solution: run away.
