Hey everyone, sorry I’m late! Unfortunately my writing plans went out the window this week. I’ve had the worst cold and felt so fuzzy-headed and rough, I’ve barely had my laptop on at all. It’s a good thing I wasn’t hoping to actually write 50k for NaNo! I should be back at it tomorrow though, so 25k is still within reach.
This week in Favourite Toy, we skip forward to Christmas Day with the guys exchanging gifts. Since the last snip, Ryan has tried dating a school teacher (Robbie) and another guy (Luke), neither of whom suited him, so he’s still single.

We all gave each other casual gifts, except for Dean and Casper, who’d already exchanged their personal presents in their room. Remy gave me a recently released collectors’ edition of the Predator movies, and an amazingly realistic Predator model made from random bits of metal, screws, nuts and bolts, pins and chain links. I’d seen them on the internet and always thought they were incredible—and expensive.
“Wow!” I placed the model on the table in front of me. “I love this! Thanks so much.” I leaned over and gave Remy a kiss on the cheek. He flushed scarlet and his eyes sparkled. I’d given him some CDs I knew he wanted. Now I wished I’d spent more. The Predator models, even the small ones which was what I had, were about fifty quid.
“You’re spoiled.” Casper pouted. “Look what I got. A shirt!”
“You ungrateful bitch,” Remy teased. “You’ve wanted that shirt since you saw it in the window of the shop. I bought it the next day to make sure they didn’t sell out.”
“I’m just joking, you know I love you.” Casper leaned towards Remy and kissed him. He pulled away, making a face.
“Ugh, get off. I don’t want your lip gloss on my face.”
