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.

Can we hear a whoop for this surprising and impressive show of sense? There is a scary amount of self-control at work here. And well done Ian too for jumping in and speaking the truth. He's making a habit of it, eh?
Gotta love Irena's stance here. "I'm here for you if it all goes wrong..." I have to wonder if she'd have been using that stick on Cortland as much as on Spence; for his own bloody good!
But - it wasn't needed. Sense prevails. How will Spence like THOSE APPLES??
Thank you so much for the update! I am loving these developments! It would've been so easy for Cortland to just knock Spence out, but he's chosen to stay in control. And Ian, oh Ian, how you have grown! Irena is lovely, she's there and ready to defend her friend if necessary! I love love love it!
Well what a display of maturity from everyone here, except Spence but meh; what can you do. Maybe the "just talking" thing will throw him off for a bit and he'll actually calm down...
Thanks for the update, as always it's amazing!
The fading snake coils!!!!!
Him, fighting back against his darker, angry nature? Holy shit.
Man, you guys; these characters are gorgeous -- I love the way they're all so tightly wound and only slowly coming undone to show themselves to us.
Ian's defense of Cortland, and then Cortland's defense of Ian are *sublime* parts of this chapter.
