Well I have to tell you that I almost didn't read your story. I just started it a few days ago, and found the spelling errors, misused words and errors in context rather offputting. I'm happy to say that I persevered because in spite of the errors (in the early chapters) you write a good story. Once I began reading, I couldn't stop, and now have to wait impatiently for the next chapter(s)! How long do we have to wait for Luke and Ryan to discover each other??
What a great chapter. The lucid conversation was so natural and entertaining. It's great seeing Luke and Ryan bond some more, being surrounded by general happiness and good times. Thanks for writing.
Kudos for great story line. I enjoy the sense o closeness developing between Luke and Ryan.
The solidarity of the upper classmates shows the school culture really is changing.
The Grands are refreshing and welcome reenforcements for future events. Nice chapter.
I've been catching up on my phone with your new chapters. Anytime I'm waiting to pick my kid up, or waiting for food, or whatever, I'm reading the story.
I love these new chapters and the whole thing with Luke and Ryan getting trashed and Luke's parents finding out was both funny and sad at the same time. When Luke's dad realized that Ryan didn't do anything on purpose, his heartfelt apology and tears really got me choked up. I love how Luke's parents are so welcoming because Ryan really needs people who he can count on for support.
I'm actually reading the next chapter, but I wanted to let you know these new chapters have been great, just like the rest of the story!
Oh, just one small thing: I know Luke and his family come from England, so when they use terms we wouldn't use in the states it makes perfect sense. But when I read Ryan's inner monologue, he talked about being so pissed when he was drunk. That didn't sound right to me b/c he would never use that word to describe wasted, drunk, etc. He would use that word to describe if he were angry or frustrated even, but not drunk.
I know it's hard for someone to think like an American when he's not from the states. lol I know I'd probably do the same thing w/o even realizing it.
Anyway...just stopped by to tell you how much I love this story, and I'm so glad you're back, Riley!!
Reply from Riley Jericho (author)
Hi there Lisa! Great to hear from you - it’s made my day!!
Oh my goodness - you have no idea how hard it is to write in an American culture! Like you say, I can get away with a lot with the Summers family because of their British roots, but the rest is tough. One of the jobs Andy Gordon (my editor) has to do in the time he has, is try to steer me through all the American colloquialisms.
Anyway, glad to hear that ET still has your heart, and thanks for reading and reviewing!
Well, I've just finished reading the whole story and had decided to wait till I reached this point to write a review. Great work ya have here! Before I get started with this chapters review, I gotta say that previous chapter really made my day, Luke's strategy was amazing, it felt like a game or something.
Anyway, focusing in this last chapter I'd like to say that there are some interesting messages you have transmitted us in your writing:
The way some guys that had made bad things realized, thought about it and made a change was one of them, showing that there's not bad guys, just guys which do bad stuff... people is not what they do, as long as there's life there are possibilities to change.
The other one is at the end of the chapter in the chat with Damon and, while it might not be as 'deep' as the first one, it is important to our identity as 'gay guys' or any other group to that matter, here you're saying that to 'brand' people and people's actions is wrong. Just because a guy seems to be dressed as a homeless man, it doesn't mean he's gonna steal from you.
This is one of the causes of me giving you those 'likes', you're transmitting your ideas in a great way, through what you love to do. Of course, I don't really need to point out that your style of writing is really compelling and I love the story and the characters.
Keep up the good work!
Hello there my friend. Glad you made it through to the current chapter! You’ll be glad to know that the story is finished, though often new chapters take a week or so to come out because my editor is a totally ruthless *****! Love him to bits - he’s brilliant!
Some great insights here. Thanks you.
I think that people are always much more complicated than they seem from first impressions - and more so when it’s a limited story. It’s possible to get drawn along by the crowd - and even do bad things - but that’s not necessarily just who you are. People can change. Maybe it’s called growing up?
Anyway, thanks for the nice comments. It’s much appreciated.
when i think about this chapter I'm a little confused. its like you (riley) saying that a bunch of male adolescents are going to forget about their sexual urges and go where?? there boys and they are in a all boys school and they take a shower each day with each other and there's going to be comments and jibes and kidding and even some contact. like its said never drop the soap in a boys shower. even what they did in shaving each other is not too over the top (as far as I'm concerned. it makes the story more interesting? maybe!). they are going to do things like what they did and also what was done to the little brother. its called growing up. show me yours and I'll show you mine. nothing unusual. and i can't for the life of me think that any of these things are going to have a lasting effect on anyone's personality.
it was a good chapter and i enjoyed it even though it was very thought provoking. that's what writing should be about.
thanks for writing. i look forward to each week and the next chapter. and what happened to simon and toby? if i recall weren't they a little more involved previously. i think that the situation they are in and with tobys mother the other element that make it particularly interesting.
Hi Bill - and thanks for the great insights! ’Never drop the soap in the boys shower’! LOL! Never heard that before!!
No of course there’s no way that teen guys at an all boys school are suddenly going to become angels. On the other hand, perhaps the Hang will get dropped. Will something else take its place eventually? Probably.
Simon and Toby are still brewing in the background, and I think Simon is in for a few surprises! (PS - don’t tell anyone I said that!)
This chapter (and the last) have been exciting to read. Read together as a pair, they are especially good. I wonder how Ryan feels about the people who seem to be rallying in his defense. It would be nice to get inside his head for a scene.
Hi Parker. Glad you are enjoying the read. I agree, it’s hard to know what Ryan is thinking just now. I suspect that even if he’s cool on the outside, inside he’s still in some turmoil.
Thanks for the review!
Obviously Todd went through some serious soul searching off camera. That took some guts and I think showed him in a little different light from the way my mind was moving.
It also showed how easily a bunch of kids can be motivated, as did the original incident in the boy's john. Another great chapter!
It’s true, we’re getting to see a bit more of Todd. I think as all teens grow up their personalities begin to get more defined. You see a lot of ‘pack’ mentality in people, and not just in teens. I think everyone likes to believe that they are their own person, but a lot of the time behaviour is very defined by what their peers are doing. Few people are truly autonomous in that respect.
Thanks for the review Skinny
I read the first part of your story some time ago and really enjoyed it, but didn't realize you had continued writing it. Unfortunately, I can't remember where I left off. Hopefully, I can tell by the date. You are a good writer. I'm not sure why I didn't write a review before.
Hi there. Yes, I kind of took a year off, but used the time to completely finish the story. Previously I got to the chapter ’Stitched Up’, but it’s worth the re-read, as I also updated a lot of the earlier chapters. Most were just tweaked so they fitting together better, but also a number had a lot of completely new content added in them.
Anyway, thanks for leaving a review - it’s much appreciated.
Another great chapter Riley, it was good how Luke stood up for Ryan in the office despite starting off making a balls up of an explanation, but thinking about it, it was a logical start for an embarrassed teen to say to something that a simple statement that he had a dick operation would have been enough but he finally said it.
The school seems to have a VERY lax attitude to having a minors parent or guardian present when dealing with "serious" punishment after all Ryan could have been railroaded in to any situation had Luke not intervened. the same as turning a continuous blind eye to the humiliating acts of abuse that goes on under the noses of all the staff.
I would like to hear more about Ryan's mum, as apart from her being driven to drink and made a submissive woman by her dick of a husband it is after all her money that buys everything and gives Ryan his own financial life style, I feel that as someone from such a wealthy background she would have had an "inbred" self preservation to survive maybe she is a volcano waiting to erupt after years of belittling from her husband could come to a head. I feel that deep down she would like to stand up to him and that she and Lucy would be a formidable force if they ever teamed up.
Its only a matter of time before Luke and Ryan come out, to each other then to their family's, Luke would not have a problem but Ryan? no, his dick of an old man would tear him a new one and it would be nice if Ryan had surprising support from his his own family, and to he honest I cant wait for the two to of them finally get down and dirty with each other. lol lol.
I think Ryan will have learned lessons from this hanging saga and will once again sit on his throne and could with Luke's help champion a new age of school attitude's towards pupil's being treated with more respect from staff etc.
Thanks yet again for a great read.
Thanks for such an in depth review Jeff. I think you are right that the Principal made some bad calls. He’s the kind of guy that would want to deal with it himself if he could. Parents are a necessary evil that bring in money, but no more. I’m not sure he was initially looking to throw Ryan out of the school, though with Landon senior turning up, it got more fragile.
When it comes to Ryan parents - especially his mom and wider family - stay tuned. But his father? There lies trouble.
Some really perceptive thoughts from you here, so thanks again for the review.
I have to say, Luke's intervention in the principal's office was absolutely magnificent. What an incredible turn of events to get them all backed into a corner and to back off Ryan - without having to humiliate Ryan with disclosing the infamous Hang. Brilliant writing; thanks Riley.
I'm still absolutely loving this story, just as much as I was a few years back. The boys seem to have gotten through the worst of things - let's hope there's some good bonding to bring them closer than they've ever been before. :-)
Thanks again, Riley.
Hello Milo. You’re right, it really was a turn of events and I don’t think Luke could even guess how it might turn out when he stepped into the office. Are they through the worst? Only time will tell…and the next few chapters of course.
Thanks for the review
It better not be almost over. What a penis of a chapter. It is so good to have you back continuing this story. Worry about Ry's safety at home as we move ahead. Pax.
A penis of a chapter? Okay - now that’s a first for any review!
Almost over? I hardly think so…
I have to confess, Riley, that this story only slowly grew on me. But like the tides, it doesn't relent. A great chapter. The characters are developing, and I'm addicted. Keep up the great work. Hey! ...I can admit when I'm wrong!!!!
Skinny. Slow or not, I’m just glad you’re reading! And thank you!!
a stinger of a chapter. luke stood up for ryan like a very true friend, cautious with the administrators and landons father and to the point. told only what was necessary to allow landon to accept a lessor penance. thanks for writing and sharing. i too check very often to see if an update is available. and i don't understand why there is always one more chapter that i can't find (as listed on your sign in page)
Thanks for another review Bill. I really enjoyed writing this one too - it was a lot of fun! About the chapter numbers, I think it’s probably because I have an authors intro that’s probably counting in the overall numbers too. You’re definitely not missing anything.
This chapter was pure enjoyment. Luke was smart enough to turn the tables on a situation that might have ended pretty badly. I'm now looking forward to a bit of quiet for Ryan and Luke.
Thanks for the review Bleu. A bit of quiet for them? Really, lol!
Great update. I am glad Luke had a chance to step up for Ryan. Boy, Landon's dad is a jerk just like the son. I almost wanted to see mama bear have to come to the school and protect Luke and Ryan. I check several times a day for updates on this story.
Mama bear was spared on this one - though I think she would have torn strips off them all if she had got involved! I’m trying to update at least once a week, so keep tuned.
Wow! Great chapter Riley. I loved it. Luke finally gets his chance to put things right. Well written, it had me hooked from the first paragraph. I see that you're back with a vengeance.
Thanks Dodger. Not sure it’s back with a vengeance, but I enjoy writing and even more so when others enjoy it too!
You play your readers emotions, well done
Thanks Randy. Appreciate the kind words.
I love this story and was thrilled to find that it's back again. It makes me so happy whenever you post a new chapter. You're a wonderful writer, Riley. Thank you, and keep up the great work!
Thanks so much!
You have a great grasp of parent child dynamics. Very nuanced dialogue between Ryan and the Father as well, letting them each give guidance to each other. Luke and Ryan need to step up and be honest about their sexuality with each other given the story is set in 2015 not 1977. They have been through enough that they should be able to trust each other by now. The relationship part, well let them stumble a bit further
Hi there. Actually, this part of the story is 2008. Luke emigrated from the UK 5 years prior to that. Even 7 years ago - especially in the awkward setting of an all boys school - they would probably be a little more careful about sexuality. And they’re only teens, and stuff like that takes a lot of guts.
So, I think they’re going to keep stumbling for now. Let;s hope they stumble in the right direction soon, though!
Thanks for the review and encouragement!
very good chapter. surprised that the 'father' wasn't the parent and that was a happy development. some humor in that chapter also. thanks for writing and giving us a smile.
I doubted that anyone would suspect that ‘Father’ wasn’t who you might assume. I kinda liked the ‘Collared’ title for the same reason!
Glad you enjoyed that one, Bill.
That was a good surprise. I was not expecting that Father. I cried more than Ryan in this update, but i liked the way Geoff handled things and i hope things are looking up for a while for Ryan.
A good surprise indeed. I’m not quite sure what would have happened if it really had turned out to be his dad. Badly, I suspect. Geoff certainly came up with the goods. Dad’s can do that sometimes.
Thanks for the review.
A very good read.. Less mama and a good dad. And the boys are growing together
keep that thought and trend
Even Dad’s can sometimes hit the nail on the head…sometimes. Thanks for the review my friend!
i just want to say....this is one of my favorite stories on this site! Please don't make us wait for next chapter! Great job with this story. Looking forward to seeing what happens next!
Hi there Rofern - and thanks for the note. Glad you’re enjoying the story! The next chapter should be up shortly.
Someone is addicted to cliffhangers. That is a little cruel when the next chapter is not a click away. I'm so glad that you and your stories are back. Hopefully Luke's family will be there to protect Ryan from further abuse. You capture the teenage brain where they can't see their way out of a situation and everything looks hopeless regardless of whether they are surrounded by friends.
Sorry about that - though I know you’re going to kill me when you finally get to the next chapter.
Thanks for the review - it’s much appreciated!
Ryan escaped a very bad ending. he could have taken a plane to anywhere and then been a boy on the milk carton. after that near miss it looked like he was feeling better about himself, just a little, and would soon have contacted Luke and had an explanation of what had happen that morning. there was some prior history and background between them and Ryan in particular that we knew nothing about. even though its Ryan's father a few sinks away from him it better than an alternative runaway. good chapter. thanks for writing.
The poor guy is on a roller coaster, for sure. Still, I think the next chapter is going to surprise you!
Thanks for reviewing.
Oops. That should finish sobering Ryan up. So excited to have the story back on track.
Thanks Steve. Bet you can’t even guess what’s going to happen now!
I hate Ryan feels like his only safe haven with Lucas' family is gone. Once he gives them a chance, i believe Geoff and Lucy will surprise him. Wow. I was not expecting that ending. They both have some 'splaining to do, although me thinks Ryan will have to do most of it. I read this update at work while i should have been working, but it was worth it. Looking forward to all you have in store for us.
You naughty boy - reading at work! I’m honoured!! It sure is a mess at the moment, but how Ryan will find his way out of it is anyone’s guess.
Completely different direction from what I expected after all this time. Can’t wait to see what happens.
I think you'll be surprised!
Hi Riley, nice new chapter mate.
Dads, what can we say? Geoff went like a typical dad off the deep end with out all the facts, sounded just like mine did when I was 14 lol.
But in his defense he was only trying to do the right thing as he remembered his own alkie brother and did not want his son to make the same mistakes and go down the wrong path with drink.
Like I said off the deep end,
Luke is trying to protect his mate, but somewhere along the line he will need to sit down with Ryan and hash tings out then maybe the two of them can sit down with Lucy and TALK, something that kids do not seem or know how to do.
I was similar at that age, knew it all but knew nothing.
Geoff is a normal dad, how many times have you been told "Ask your Mum" when you need anything and at the same time you see your dad floundering trying to understand how mum makes things seem so easy.
Geoff character is one I can relate to lol.
However he is now slowly starting to realise all is not well in Ryans life and I am sure we will not hear the last of things until he finds out what terrible home life Ryan has, in fact Geoff could soon be hero worshiped by Ryan and his sons, but that is a story line for you Riley as its your story.
Ryan is so scared of adult males due to his dick of an old man that although he likes Geoff the way Geoff went at him reminded him of his own dad so only natural he ran, lets hope he does not have an accident or something where ever he has gone to.
Lucy well she is a power house the one who wears the pants, I look forward to her involvement.
I still think the school needs to be taken to task over the lack of control with the hazing and hangs etc which the staff must be aware of but seem to turn a blind eye, how many more are needed before someone is seriously hurt with a hang etc?
Great story Riley, nice to be on new ground............
Hi Jeff. It definitely makes my day when readers take time to write reviews, even just to drop a note that they’re enjoying the tale. But even more, when great questions get asked and issues probed, I really value it. In fact, what often happens is that - for me at least - a good point can end up becoming part of the story! And I think you hit on something really good stuff here, especially your reflections on Dads. I think you’re right about Geoff…he went off the deep end. It doesn’t come out in the story, but he’s also under a lot of pressure at work with the banking crash of 2008. Even the best guys can get bent out of shape now and again.
Who knows what will happen with the school, though you can be sure it’s all far from over!
It's great to read a new revised chapter after so long, thanks very much. Just a comment that it is rife with typos.
It’s no excuse, but I use an iPad (DocumentsToGo) a lot and sync chapters with my mac if i’ve been working on them. Maybe it’s just me, but content can get totally screwed up when Apple gets hold of it and just make up stuff! Drives me crazy!
Anyway - thank you for reading and for giving me a heads up.
Ahhh back to where we left off. Hope the new chapters show up in the "Stories Update" section. I have a feeling many of the original readers still don't know it's back up. BTW great chapter.
i look for your updates every day and very appreciative when there is one is listed.
thinking about ryan and luke and their drinking bout. being teenagers they are growing up and gaining more independence as they age. the drinking resulted in losing that maturity big time. Luke's mother and father took it all from them and they were relegated to little children being put to bed for misbehaving. its going to take a little time before they are trusted again i would suspect. good chapter.
i enjoy seeing the notes from 2 years ago. but where are your readers now? can't you send a email telling your prior readers that your back on gay authors? they are missing a good thing.
thanks for writing,
Thanks for the review Bill!
I think you’re right, no teens like to be pulled up on their behaviour, and now there will be consequences. Probably a good thing, I think. Nothing worse than when parents threaten something, but never ever do it. Kids learn fast that way!
In terms of readers, it’s been a while since I published, so some who were following have moved on…and there’s a great many really good authors that are worth ready on GA. Hopefully, when some new chapters start coming (which they will shortly), a few will come back to check it out.
Anyway, thanks again for the kind review.
I hope this note finds you well. I just came across this story and loved all of it so far. I love all of the characters and who they are and there quirks. I've noticed it has been awhile since your last posting, will you be adding more? I hope so!
thank you for sharing!
I'm delighted you found the story and are enjoying it.
Yes, I'm updating. It's a long story, but I've been republishing chapters that I temporarily unpublished while I worked on them. From this moment, there's just on left of those, and then something brand new will come!
Thanks again for reading and reviewing.
I do love your writing. I was excited to get to this chapter because i belive this is almost iwhere you left off a few years ago. Such vivid detail when you describe Kieran's hang and Luke's realization of how destructive it actually is to the "victim". I love Lucy, even while she is pissed at Luke and Ryan, she can still jump into crisis mode and help Ryan and maybe protect Luke for the time being.
Thanks Peethree. You're right, Lucy is a huge backstop to the story; a typical mum who knows what she wants for her family.
You're also right in noting we're almost at where we left of. Two more chapters to go and then it's onto the new!
great chapter. really hilarious. I'm not sure these boys could drink so much and still walk. a great change of pace.
I'm laughing still. thanks for writing
Hi Bill. Ryan's certainly had a skinful...and you can do all sorts of unexpected things in that condition!
Riley, just a note to let you know that this story is great and i have been waiting two years to read it again. while the reviews are from another time, 2 years ago, and somewhat baffling at times but obviously you are editing and updating as you go and that great. after all its your story. having read the story before i have been waiting for that little scene between Simon,Toby and his mother. ii want to say its really sweet but that's not what it is. its so private that the reader, at least me, felt that hes listening into a conversation from behind a closet door and that he shouldn't be there. very good writing.
i did want to say something about the hanging that seemed to upset some of your readers. obliviously there some bulling going on here but Ryan participated in doing it to others and he should expect that he was obviously going to get it done to him at some time. there boys, and boys do these things. lets hope Ryan can see that he got what he had given and then get back to Luke. then Luke can tell Ryan that he didn't intervene because of his affliction and that he wanted to see Ryan squirt. after all he is a boy that's very interested in what Ryan looks like down there.
great chapter. looking forward to what happens in the future.
Any review for an author and hearing that somebody is enjoying a story is great - but even better when a reviewer asks questions and takes the time to respond in depth. So thank you so much for going the extra paragraph!
Yes, it’s true, I am doing quite a bit of updating of the story. As you know, I took a break for a bit, but then have been working on it for about 18 months now. Without the pressure of readers waiting for the next chapter - and the the rushing that comes with that - I managed to settle back a bit and have (for the most part) now finished the whole story. SO then I went back to the beginning and began tidying things up in preparation for republishing. In that ’tidy’ a lot of things were re-written and, I hope, improved. There is also a lot of new content that fills in the gaps and improves the flow, and more than a few bits take the story in a rather different direction! I would certainly say to any who are re-reading like yourself…you should go back to the beginning if you have time, so as not to miss some key bits.
Like you note, the Hang is an animal that they have a complicated relationship with. Deep down, I think they all know it’s wrong, but if you give, you get, and it’s only when you get that close do you discover how destructive it can be.
But back to Luke and Ryan. The story is far, far from over, so we’ll have to see where it yet leads!
Thanks again for your review.
Nice chapters Ryan is a survivor and shows his trust in Luke telling him how he was and still is abused by his dad, mental abuse is often more painful than physical beatings. But even so Luke can be a bit of a dickhead at times and thinks with his willy rather than the head on his shoulders, but he is young and starting out so some allowances must be made. As for the rest of those who were involved with the hang I would still like to see a bit more payback.
Tequila, Luke and Ryan getting it on in the bedroom ????? Sorry but 'What ?? i reread several chapters as i thought i missed something important and found nothing about Luke and Ryan getting pissed and getting it on. Then i noticed the reviews where 2013, talk about spoilers.
Nicely put - Luke can be a bit of a dickhead. But then, can’t any of us at times!
My bad on the confusion with the chapter reviews. I broke up a chapter as it was getting too long in the rewrite, making two out of one. Seemed a good idea, except I forgot that there would be existing chapter specific reviews that would no longer make sense! Duh!
So, to get back on track, the next chapter is going to be a bit of a bumper!
Ahhh great! Elliot is still around. Adds some suspense to the tale.
And it's wide open as to what might come of that!
Thanks for reading.
Think Ryan did the same as most other kids would have done. However if it was me there would be pay back to those who were the leaders like broken noses and fat lips. Take them one at a time and show them who's boss.
This type of hazing should be banned from schools someone always gets hurt and its humiliating the teaching staff must be aware of what goes on and should be taken to task over this as well.
Payback is due.
Payback might help, but first Ryan has to find his way out of the desperate hole he’s fallen in. Even then, it’s hard to know if their friendships will survive this.
It looks like this version was much harder on Ryan than the last version. It'll be interesting to see where this goes.
After having taken a break from the story a you know, I took the decision to change a few things. I wanted to explore what would happen if Ryan didn’t get “luckily” saved by the bell, because in a real life situation with shrewd scheming teens, they would have all the angles covered. Whatever the reason, they seemed to be confidant they wouldn’t be interrupted, so it made sense to take it to its natural conclusion and then see how that affected the rest of the story.
Thanks for reviewing!
hi riley, (i hope your there)
all these reviews are from 2012?
anyway i read your story, i guess in 2012. it was still going on then. and then you disappeared for awhile. i wanted to reread and then tried all kinds of segannians to try and find where you were. if you were publishing et or the story was on another internet site than ga. finally got 10 chapters that were bedded somewhere on the internet. and i wasn't the only one trying to find you.
anyway, i enjoyed your story in 2012 and am enjoying your return in 2015. i remember the story but i think its somewhat changed but still, a great great read. please keep it coming. i can only get up to chapter 25 (the hang) and it leaves a lot hanging. (pardon me on that). i know there a lot after that chapter.
so the question? are you going to add chapters after 25? do you have a schedule? can you provide a notice when you post a chapter? i think that ga is supposed to do that but they didn't when you reappeared. if you can advise thanks in advance.
great story and thanks for writing.
Yes - I’m here, lol! But you’re right…it’s been a while!
I guess life - not all of it good - took over and I stopped writing and ended up unpublishing stuff while I figured out what I wanted to do. Then, since last summer, I started writing again with a hope to finish off ET and at least feel I’d achieved something!
So, in answer to your question, yes I do hope there will be lots of new chapters coming out, though like any author, you naturally get motivated to bring out more content if you sense people are reading and beginning to review. I realise that I lost a lot of my readership when I disappeared - which is all my fault - so I think we will see how it goes when we get to new chapters.
That said, the first draft of the story is actually finished now, though I tinker a lot, so it will go through lots of revisions to try to get it right!
You are right in noting that the story software won’t register updates of existing chapters in the normal place, however, when new chapters come out, it should. in the meantime, there is a thread in the forum under the stories section and I drop a note there every time I update. I think that if you click the link to follow the story you also get automatic notifications on updates.
Anyway, thanks for reading and for dropping this note.
Just as fun as first time. Hang in.
Thanks my friend
And I'm delighted to say that the story - for the most part - is now finished!
The one ray of hope was when the official at the customs desk looked through his spanking brand new passport and stared at him, intently. Luke glared back defiantly. Go on – throw me out – do us both a favor! But, instead of putting him back on a plane to where he rightly belonged, he’d brought his stamp down in final judgment.
