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.

Our boys are together again, finally! ^__^

This pages gives a great sense of the in-betweenness of their lives. Meeting on a playground they've long since outgrown. Cort being in such a hurry he not only forgot his shoes, he didn't notice later he had. And then there's Ian checking the coast is clear before moving in close. Even then, the affection is understated and deniable/explainable. The past is closer to them than their new selves but they can sense where they want to go, and that they want to go together.
@chaos-of-vinnie: haha, maybe changing the subject wasn't a bad thing. Irena's way of handling cort is to ride out the anger and let him spend it. Maybe Ian's approach is a new and refreshing thing for Cort. It had him smiling pretty fast ^_^
