Hi, everyone, I hope you all had a good week. I have a busy weekend ahead and tonight I’m going to a scarefest, Horror at Hinchingbrooke House, which I went to last year. I went last year and I screamed so much I had a sore throat, but it was brilliant and worth every penny. This year they reportedly have 80 actors playing scary characters from horror movies. Last year Freddy Krueger scratched my head with his “knife” fingers! :O
Anyway, it’s time for another snippet from Favourite Toy 2. Ryan decided to try a one night stand and when that didn’t make him feel good, he tries dating a barista who has had a crush on him for quite a while.

I dated Tristan for three weeks. Initially, I liked him and I began to think things might work out after the first few dates. We didn’t have a huge number of things in common, but he had a tremendous sense of humour and made me laugh all the time. He was attractive and sexy, sweet and caring, but by the middle of the second week, he was also clingy. I couldn’t remember any of my previous boyfriends texting me so often or prompting me with more texts when they didn’t get an immediate answer.
As Tristan lived with his parents, we couldn’t go back to his place to fool around, so I brought him home a couple of times, which I quickly realised was a mistake. I couldn’t just fuck him and ask him to leave, so he stayed over, which made the early gatherings in the kitchen awkward. Casper got along with Tristan, but Remy kept out of the way after their first meeting, and Dean rolled his eyes whenever Tristan wasn’t looking his way.
