    That. Was. AWESOME. For both of them - I loved Seth’s attitude and it was great to see Noah take matters into his own hands. I had the same fears that the Cranes could come after Seth if he damaged their figurehead son.

    So relieved Noah’s grandfather came through, it sounds like. I was hoping that practicality that Noah alluded to would show up. “He’s gay? So what, he’s got a head for business. That’s all I need to know.” Or something like that. Hopefully he also stated his other grandchild was an idiot. That would be fun for Noah’s dad to hear. Though it occurs to me that his brother didn’t out him right away. Was that because Noah got ahead of it or was Brock just going to drag out the pain?

    Chapter 38

    While I get that Jackson’s something of a rule breaker and certainly thinks highly of himself, I suspect Cindy’s definition of being “full of yourself” is a little skewed. I imagine it applies to any kid who is secure in their parents’ love, has a healthy amount of confidence, and doesn’t question their self-worth on a daily basis. Oh, and doesn’t go to church and devote enough time to prayer XD

    Chapter 38

    Got to say, I’m proud of Jackson for standing up to the counselor trying to guilt him. Sometimes you have to look out for yourself and the people you love. And further kudos to Jackson for keeping his cool with Cindy. I like to think I’d do the same but I’d have been so tempted to yell out something like “you know how much he hates you these days, right?” Or something to that effect. True or not, it’s something every mother fears - especially controlling ones like Cindy, whether or not they admit it.
  5. I’m concerned about the pastor too, but at Robbie’s age, I’d have taken the bargain as well. Two hours in exchange for the pastor supporting adoption? Especially when you consider the damage he could do if he chose to push for marriage, I wouldn’t have seen another option. Which is just what the pastor wants.

    Idiots like Brock are always looking for something to hold over people. Noah didn’t give a damn about his being stronger, good looking or even their parents favorite. On top of that, Noah was so much clearly smarter than him. Brock’s probably been looking for some way to get back at his younger brother for this staggering insult *voice dripping with sarcasm*

    I’m not exactly a nice guy 😆

    I’m sure his parents have *just* enough financial control that he can’t tell them to screw off. He’s a better man than I - in his place I’d have laughed and really rubbed it in. Forced the father to admit his precious Brock was a dumbass. Like actually make him say the words. If you can’t say no to someone, you can at least make it really painful for them to ask - that’s my motto XD

    Chapter 35

    Awesome ending. That swim meet had me on the edge of my seat though. Great job!
  11. Honestly the more I think about this the angrier I get on Robbie’s behalf. In his place I’d be low-key contemplating murder - or at least a well time tumble down the stairs. He has to get ahead of Don somehow. He used to be a little less scrupulous - where’s Dark Robbie when we need him? I seriously hope this doesn’t end with him being a baby daddy cause that would be so unfair (of course life isn’t fair as we all know). While I don’t think he’s the sort to be praying for a miscarriage, I suspect there’s a part of him pragmatic enough to recognize the benefit if that were to happen. Our Robbie has a bit of a steel core - I think it’s a self preservation instinct especially in trauma survivors (total arm chair psychology though).
  12. I mean, does he? We’ve discussed how one of his major goals is to screw Robbie over and bleed him financially in retaliation for messing up his “perfect family.” I was under the impression he knows perfectly well the trouble this will cause and how much it will derail Robbie’s life. Teen pregnancies are objectively never a *helpful* thing in the modern world.
  13. I feel bad for Stephanie but damn, she takes forever to get to the point, doesn’t she? Before the crying, I mean, because she’s certainly going through a lot, but even in other circumstances, I feel like she’s the sort to bury the lede. I can see her being told to get on with it a lot XD Seriously though, big news like keeping the baby and not doing adoption is the sort of thing you say right away rather than at the very end. And her need for face to face and the cloak and dagger ironically ended up getting her secret out. Nathan’s development is surprising and welcome. I wasn’t sure he had it in him - not cause he’s a bad person by any means but because he just has a massive ego. Jo said what we were all thinking. Don’s actions are far from surprising but I am surprised Stephanie didn’t pick up from Robbie’s obvious reaction though that whatever Don said isn’t true. She didn’t strike me as stupid - just impulsive. Oh wow. I’m really ragging on the poor girl, aren’t I? XD

    Chapter 33

    Ouch… I know that feeling of missing out on opportunities because you thought you had time. “How could someone do that - oh, wait…” and you remember all your own screw ups.
  15. Her attitude in this chapter is akin to a little kid jumping up and down in the background being like “hey! Hey! I’m a part of this too - include me! I have something to contribute!” It’s a good thing Robbie snapped at her, honestly. While it’s annoying, it’s expected - she may be mature in someways but she is still a child. So’s Robbie. So’s Stephanie.
