  1. You won the award on September 9th. Interesting, considering, that's my birthday. And, The Artful Dodger just so happens to be one of my favorite characters of all time.

    Chapter 36

    Don't read it again, Zack. Just hand it in to Mr. Raffe and then tell Brody. Whatever you do, don't go home with it still in your bag!
  3. I assume you're referring to the apparent unwillingness to terminate the pregnancy. Canada may be one of the most liberal countries on earth when it comes to gay rights, equal rights for women, and legalizing drugs. In those areas it's probably more progressive than most European countries, but not when it comes to abortion. It's easy to judge people based on your own culture, but there are distinct differences between Canada and Europe particularly when it comes to terminating a pregnancy. Abortion is available, free in Ontario to Canadian residents, but there are a lot of people who are
  4. Thanks, Steve for another in-depth comment. You make some good points as usual, but this time, I'm mostly interested in what you left out. No mention of Don! Either you've taken care of him in Calgary, or you no longer see him as a serious threat or influence. Maybe that's the case, but you know that old saying about a bad penny.
  5. I wonder how drunk Stephanie would have to be to allow Don anywhere near her. Nothing short of unconscious I should imagine, or rape in other words. If Don was into young girls - and there's been no evidence of that so far - then I'm sure there are plenty of teenage hookers in Toronto who would gladly take his money. Don is not a nice man. He's an abusive bully, a cheat and a bigot, but he's probably not the type of person who would want to rape his daughter's best friend, even if he thought he could get away with it. The emotional damage this would cause to his family, not to mention Ste
  6. Haha, I like the last line. It would have been perfect. I think it's more a case of Stephanie and her parents not liking the idea of abortion, than wanting to have a baby. This could be due to religious beliefs, but there are plenty of people who are opposed to abortion. It sounds like she is being influenced by her parents, so maybe they're the ones who are opposed. There are other options, of course, like adoption, that she may want to consider. If she decides to keep the baby, it will be difficult for Robbie to avoid having any contact considering it is his sister's friend, and su
  7. Unsurprisingly, Nicola hasn't won too many friends in this chapter, Mr Lube probably even less. Maybe they're made for each other.
  8. I can't see Robbie being coerced into marrying Stephanie or vice versa, but Robbie could turn out to be an okay dad.
  9. Thank you, @Scary That has to be the biggest compliment I've ever had. Most of the chapter was written a few years back and was part of the original story, but it was always my intention to include it in the longer version when the time was right. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I often worry about adding a bit of humour, because it can easily fail, and I know I haven't always got it right. Sometimes real-life can throw up some funny moments, even in difficult circumstances and that's what I've tried to show through Robbie's eyes.
  10. This may be his biggest challenge to date, because it will affect the rest of his life. He has the opportunity to walk away like his dad, or play some kind of role, however limited. I think we all know what decision he's going to make.
  11. It's difficult to predict Don's reaction to this news. He probably won't be happy even if it does seem to backup his claim that Robbie isn't gay. He may try to get Robbie to marry Stephanie, but there's no guarantee she's going to agree. Maybe years ago this would have been the case, but not nowadays. She would be completely mad to marry Robbie, even if she liked him in that way, which isn't certain. There will be other, more suitable guys out there, and not all of them will be dissuaded by a child. I think Nicola was starting to feel betrayed by her friend and brother. She was jumping to
  12. Well, at least Robbie knows for certain now and if Stephanie is true to her word and she doesn't want anything from him, then it must be good news. It could have been much worse. He will be more concerned about Don's reaction to Nathan.
  13. Don's only been gone for a couple of days and he may wish hadn't gone at all. If he finds out Nathan has been invited back into the family, he might not be concerned about Stephanie.
  14. It seemed like Amy was right after all. I did get married to Nathan, and it was a grandiose affair held on a hot summer’s day in the middle of Cobourg beach. Mr Andrews performed the ceremony in front of a crowd of family, friends, and well-wishers, including a contingent from the UK. People who I hadn’t seen since I was a young boy. Tom and Daniel were the best men, and everyone was kitted out in their finest beachwear. Shorts, t-shirts, and swimsuits were the order of the day, with shoes and socks prohibited. The reception was held in a giant tent on the beach, with drum and bass pumpin
  15. I thought you might have something to say about the Maple Leaf comment. It pained me a little to write it, but the story is set a few years ago when they really were shit and had definitely seen better days. Mitch first appears in chapter 91 'Feeling the Heat' when he picks a fight with Robbie and Nathan at the beach.
