I'm glad that everybody knows about Michael now. The whole mating dance Brian and Justin are doing is really amusing.
Progress!! Yes! I like the idea of Brian playing in the water. Just stay away from sharks. Oh no, Mikey is going to get caught, this GHB issue won't quit.
The teasing!!! It's amazing what words can do.
Gran is hilarious: "I was hoping it was the tail Justin’s been waving this at"
Gus is so funny and direct, just like his father and Mel.
A few of great repartees:
“Not everything I wanted to blow got out of my head.” Brian tells him, looking at me.
“I love him, but he doesn’t growl.” I tell him, thinking about the person who does.
“I’ll growl any way you want.” Comes from behind me. I turn as Brian jogs by behind us with Gus and Tobey.
Some pretty hot interplay between our 2 favorite boys. Wonder how long either will last with their own convictions? Will either give in or stand firm a bit longer. I'm actually enjoying Justin's almost "hard to get" attitude. He doesn't want a summer fling and says so. Brian's typical in adn out won't work here at all. He must realize that. He wouldn't put this much effort into it if he was only interested in a one time thing.
Emmett going to Vic was interesting. I must say I had teh same reaction as Emmett at one point. vic's initial comment made my jaw drop! Even slightly trying to excuse Michael's behaviour is just wrong. I guess because it's family, and it's well known what Michael's feelings are towards Brian, that vic is just trying to find a way to not have Michael be as evil as he's actually been. Really curious as to what Deb's reaction is going to be. Will she disbelieve what she's heard and back Michael, or will she kick his ass. I mean it's not fact, but let's face it...it's pretty much a given that he did it.
Love the characters in this story. Growly and Justin will hopefully get together soon. When Emmett and Ted get there things should get interesting. Gus has already charmed Gran. I take it Lindsay doesn't know what Michael did? She's pretty much the only one who doesn't.
I really LOVE the chemistry between Brian and Justin here! It's playful and sexy. Definitely more-than-a-summer-fling worthy! That kiss what HOT! I'm with Riley... just do the 'grown-up' and put each other out of their initial misery... or more accurately put me out of MY misery, LOL
As for Lindsay... Jeez, I wish she would get all of her facts before she decides to go on her high moral crusade. Without knowing anything, she just takes Michael's word for what happened between him and Brian. It's infuriating that she can't see through the lies and bullshit. I hope Mel gives her that dose of truth and reality even before they leave Sandcove.
I'm glad that Em went to confide in Vic, even if I'm not happy with Vic's initial reaction of trying to explain away Michael's actions. I know that's the normal response mechanism for ALL things Twerp but still it grates on my nerves. I doubt Deb's reaction will be much better since it is all kinds of evident that Michael is in the wrong. I'm afraid that instead of blaming Michael, which should happen, she'll throw the book at Brian, calling him a bad influence on her perfect devil. I hope I'm proven wrong but so far I can't see it happening any other way. Well at least it is all out in the open and no one can say they weren't told about Michael's misdeeds.
Looking forward to the next chapter, Star!!
Happy Writing and HUGS,
