A wonderful, lighthearted tale, with engrossing characters who grow on you so quickly that you get wrapped in their doings and emotions before you realize it. I looked forward to every new chapter, and now I'll be at a loss. Really well done!
I guess it's beyond doubt that Mark will take Mickey back. I agree with all who have said that Mickey has a lot of growing up to do and I'd wish he did that first, before Mark gets back with him. I found it really telling what Sean told Mark--that he had the impression that Mickey had the wrong idea about what was going in between them and turned cold on him when Sean cleared that up. Mickey did just go with Sean for a new experience or a hot romp, he wanted a relationship--why else would he "turn cold" when Sean told him it was only a hookup for sex?He wanted more! And for me that means he set out deliberately to betray Mark and to replace him with Sean and would have done so, if Sean hadn't rejected him. Maybe he's learned his lesson but nothing in what he told Mark indicates that to me. Self-centered is the best I can say about him. I feel really sorry that Mark's love is blinding him to what Mickey has really done.
Seems like Mickey came looking for Mark after a week ONLY because Sean dumped him, as we all knew he would. I could have understood Mickey hooking up with Seam once, out of curiosity or out of giving in to the flattery of a smooth player. But to utterly ignore Mark for a whole week is inexcusable. It’s great that Mark loves him enough to forgive him, but I really hope he forces Mickey to confront just how abominable his behavior has been, and to make him realize that he has to rebuild the trust that he so callously and selfishly destroyed.
