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.

@EmmaVieceli: did I miss understand something? I was under the impression he took the fall for his brother, because he was underage, even though he didn't know it until like a few days ago. Did I misunderstand?
@Ralend: Ah, I see! Sorry, I didn't get what you meant.x
We'll never know whether Cortland or Harvey dealt the fatal blow to the boy who died, but you're right in that Cort was left to believe it had only been him. Harvey's guilt is something Harvey himself is wanting to work on now, but it doesn't change what Cortland did. So he didn't so much take the fall as take the full responsibility without knowing that Harvey had also attacked the victim. The Child Looked After scheme has been well worth his doing, and he was never charged with the murder. He's been working off the assault charge. Ultimately, neither of them is likely to be charged with the murder as the situation is so hard to prove beyond reasonable doubt...but where Cortland has now paid for the assault and come out the other end, Harvey is still in limbo as he didn't want to risk his position as Cortland's only family. Which is why he's now spoken to the police. Hope that makes more sense! :)
