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.

Another part of the Cortland Hunt jigsaw puzzle; yay!
It's been hinted at before, but this is a much more definite sign that perhaps his advice to Ian is rooted in more than smokey memories and concern for Ian's health. So, our boy was or is a boxer, eh? Looks like it was pretty serious...
Awws not just serious looks like he was really enjoying it too... but I guess with all the mess that happened he probably had to quit. That's my guess for the moment at least. And it seems like he is trying to convince himself that it wasn't that important or he just doesn't want to feel sad about it or something. Like thinking whats done is done. Or at the time he didn't think it was that important to him. Cause reputation is a big deal to athletes I suppose and Cort probably couldn't continue with the rep he got. It's understandable that he got so intense with Ian's smoking, because it wouldn't be worth it to waste something he is serious about just because of something like that.
@annann: Very much, yes! It looks like a glimpse into a past life, almost. One he's trying to convince himself didn't matter. So we know something happened to take Cortland from the athlete in his memories to the bitter, closed-off boy he is now. What was the mess in question? We'll find out! ^_^
