Everyone wears a mask. What we see of people on the surface is so rarely what’s ticking underneath. And, in Cortland Hunt’s case, what he’s hiding might just be more than Ian Tanner is prepared for.
Breaks is the story of two young adults coming to terms with who they were, who they are and who they’ll become.
It’s a love story…but a little broken.

Amilah's words from an earlier scene are coming back to haunt Ian...awww.
I've very much been in the place where every fibre in my body knew who I wanted, but my brain kept trying to pretend it wasn't happening. It's not healthy and it can drive you insane! D:
Have any of you felt any unrequited/unconfessed attachments? If so, all the hugs to you! It's hard on a heart! (especially when the attachment in question comes with the shedload of complications that Ian's current feelings could unload)
Becoming friends while crushing so hard is painful, especially once I realized that my gaydar was not entirely accurate... There was no fighting that straightness, at least not for me. But the silver lining is that while I was depressed I met someone who was getting out of a bad relationship, and we were so fed up with the whole dating thing that we decided "okay, this is gonna be a rebound crush, but we're gonna skip the angst and uncertainty and just go for no-nonsense open discussion approach." 14 years of happiness so far, longest rebound of my life :).
Yeah, had that once. Not only was it a straight guy, he was also the brother of my former best friend. And to add insult to injury, I also soon found out that he was mentally challanged (nothing against that, the issue is that he has some emotional issue, he can't form any kind of bond, so even without all the other things, he wouldn't be able to fall in love) AND 13 while I was already 20 (he looked like 17 and is even bigger then both me and his brother).
Love can be a bitch, since you can't control who to fall for and then just hate yourself for falling for that one person :P
At least it is already a few years back and I had a great lover in-between, so I got over it pretty well other then being disturbed by it xD
But this one is frustrating because at least us readers can see that both feel a strong attraction to each other (I mean, both of them had their mesmerized staring moment just now) and none of them does anything.
I wouldn't like to spoil it, but I totally think all we will see is him taking the cigarette out of his mouth... Kisses shall wait. They're going to grow and understand their feelings for each other and then...
Or, I'm wrong on everything and they're going to kiss (too). KISS <3
I don't know whats gonna happen on the next page but i had to go back to page 3 and confirm to myself that they ARE wearing the same clothes as this page in that "flash-foward" ;DDDDD so I sorta have a hunch to where this may be going. HURHURHUR
@MoonByte: *hug* What a hard position to be in. A truly unrequited love; the stuff of songs and stories, but not so nice when it's happening to you, eh? I'm very glad you found someone who could help you past that though! ^_^
And yessssss, the sparks are so clear. Come on, guys - you need to deal with what's happening!
