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??

Yay for the boys. Common sense is so hard sometimes... glad things didn't escalate...yet <G> now I want to see my two little darlings "talk" about their feelings...Ian is a roll so far.

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!

@raephium: I wouldn't make him so old! O:
I do make him 16-17... Oh god, this is embarrassing, I don't really know the characters' actual ages...? *hides in a cave

I thought she was holding a flaming sword in the previous page. Plot twist!

I actually like this outcome more, even if Spence do deserve getting a little beating. Whoop, common sense prevails!! X3

@Twinss R.: I think I read in an interview that Spencer is one year older than the boys (he repetead a year or something).
And I think their are 17.

Spence has a mental breakdown in 3 2 1...
Seems that better than make Spence look into a mirror he's the type that needs to face an undeniable and insulting truth to achieve any growth whatsoever.

:O I'm proud of you Court! You handled that well, well so far anyway XD
Yes fight him off with words the pair of you! And then have an awkward embrace since you haven't spoken since Ian 'came out' XD

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!

@Hana: @Twinss R: spot on, yep! He's just a year older, but he's a big lad,eh? We always had a couple of kids in our school who looked so grown up and totally used that to their advantage!

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.

SO. Well. Done.

And she's just casually hanging back with a potentially lethal weapon. Just in case. <3
