Even though they have their ups and downs, Brian and Justin always find their way back to each other. They are ready to take on the world! -mamaduck
Sequel to Time's Up Volume I: It's Only Time
After ten years, Brian and Justin are still meeting in secret. Now one is ready to make things permanent while the other...Hmm- not so much. It will ultimately come down to hard choices, sacrifices and what's more important: everlasting love or freedom? And how will secret and not-so-secret enemies affect their decision?

No Copyright Infringement is intended. Although there will be reference made to the original storyline and characters (which I do not own and am not affiliated with the franchise), there will also be some new characters and storylines which are solely mine.
This is part of what is intended to be an ongoing serial (or soap opera if that's what you would like to call it) and will be updated once per month due to my own obligations. Either way I promise you will not have to wait long for the next installment! The premise of the story is after ten years, Justin and Brian have been meeting periodically. Now one is ready to make things permanent while the other...HMmm- not so much. It will ultimately come down to hard choices, sacrifices and what's more important: everlasting love or freedom?
I really hope you enjoy the story as it's being written. There are several subcategories listed which of elements which will appear over time as I add on more chapters. So I'm listing them now so I won't forget to later and have to issue an apology for shocking you...lol As always, our men are a handful and more to deal with. One more thing: I DO NOT WRITE TAME LOVE SCENES! I, in my real life as an author, am NOT a "FADE-TO-BLACK" and "CLOSE THE DOOR" kind of writer. Although I will give a small warning of the impending scene, it is graphic (Think the drawings of Rage ladies and gentlemen) so you may have to skip those parts if you are a prude like Mikey and Lindz...lol Brian and Justin wouldn't expect any less of me! Anyway, no matter what I write in the future near or far, theirs will always be the story of my heart. BRITIN FOREVER!!
This is the LAST prude alert for this fic...LOL It's B&J for goodness sake! Anyway, Michael and Lindsay would probably close their eyes at this scene- well Michael would probably peek A LOT, LOL! Enjoy the SMUT!
Chapter 13 is intentionally missing from this story...These two need all the help they can get without having to worry about the jinx of the number 13!!
This is a shorter chapter with only one scene but I hope it's satisfying!! ENJOY!!!
The next several chapters will be different POVs in response to the Non-Nuptials and "The Prize Fights" of Chapter 22. After those are done, we'll get to day 2 of the festivities.
24. Chapter 24: IT'S NOT JUST A RIVER- Debbie and Carl by Nichelle Wellesly [Reviews - 5] (980 words)
Some of the following chapters will be shorter but are no less essential to the plot of Volume II...
34. Chapter 34: FCUK (not talking about the French Connection y'all!) by Nichelle Wellesly [Reviews - 4] (5809 words)
There are quite a few scenes in Chapter 34 so I divided them into parts. Most of the action takes place at Britin but then we have other notable things happening at First National Bank and let's not forget Ethan has to be served his restraining order as well. Chapter 34 and all of its parts are definitely plot-driven, angsty and have some humorous moments to balance out the drama (well at least I hope so)! Happy Reading! ~Nichelle
I used Hammer to Fall by Queen for the inspiration for this chapter. I think you'll understand why...LOL
LOTS OF PLOT AND DEVELOPMENT...ENJOY!
Special, Special SPECIAL THANKS to my fellow Writing Divas of the LLLC! Without your encouragement, love and guidance I don't know how I would have kept sanity. This is as much your victory as it is mine and I thank you all!!
I supposed I should issue a M/F/F warning.... well you've been WARNED! LOL Happy Reading!!
CHAPTER 43- LIKE A TAYLOR-KINNEY SCORNED Part 2
Just a brief recap… Craig got what he deserved! Even if he could somehow have gotten off, he still can’t escape punishment. That works for me!! And it definitely worked for Sarah. Gus has found a tentative ally (although he’s still reserving judgment) in Ty. The text messages were sent, received and understood by Carl and crew. Mel and Lindsay have made peace and moved on! For those of you who had a little trouble with the Mel/ Lindz/ Colby scene, allow me to clarify: Colby respects the fact that Mel is a lesbian and wouldn’t violate her by touching her. This entire scenario was sort of Mel passing the torch (so to speak) to the man that Lindsay is clearly involved with. And yes, I think it gave Mel a clearer picture of the natural instinct that Lindz has been fighting against throughout the years. Which brings us to Daphne’s rumble in the ‘Mergency Room (YEP… she knocked the E clear off the word). Whose block she’s knocking off will be revealed in a little bit but first we have some other ‘unfinished business’ to reconvene on… Damn I love intrigue!
Yes, yes YES! I know that it has been forever since I posted on this. But it wasn't intentional. Originally, I thought to give you a full novel-length conclusion to this wonderful and incredibly frustrating story BUT I wasn't happy with what was written. So I erased the entire chapter as written to begin again. This has happened quite a bit- five to be exact (stop shaking your head, laughing, pointing and cussing at me. You know how meticulous and particular I am about my babies.) and was about to become a sixth time. So now what I have decided to do, is release part of what I have so that I can stop the impulse and continue writing from there. I hope it was worth the wait!
Looking forward to your thoughts/ reviews!
Happy Reading and HUGS,
Special THANK YOUs go out to Lorie, Saje and the LLLC from talking me down off the writing 'SLASHER' ledge this afternoon!
Lots of action and angst this chapter...ENJOY!!!
