Happy New Year all! Wow, first snip of a new decade. 2019 was a very poor writing year for me. In the latter few months I hardly did any, but life got in the way, and a lot of it wasn’t nice. Let’s hope 2020 is a better year for both me and my writing.
I’m continuing with Favourite Toy 2 for a little longer and hope to be able to get it finished and released before much longer. In the last snip Dean was giving Ryan his form of advice, ie “talk to Remy,” which didn’t really help Ryan. Several days pass and Ryan hasn’t had the opportunity to get Remy alone, so…

I went to my room and did the only thing I could think of. I sent Remy a text. I need to talk to you. Are you working tomorrow?
The reply came quickly. Yes. 8 to 3.
Meet me after?
This time it was longer before I got an answer, as if he were considering whether to say yes. Where and when?
I answered with the name of a pub I thought was near where he worked and suggested three thirty.
Ok. That was it. My anxiety ramped up another notch as I wondered what I would say to him. I realised it was the first time in over a year and a half I’d really cared about anything.
I had to be at the pool early on Saturday, and I was out of the house before any of the others came out of their rooms. My shift was four hours, and I was home by lunchtime. Much to my relief, the house was empty. I spent some time scrubbing myself, shaving, messing with my hair, and picking out clean jeans and a nice shirt. It was almost as if I was preparing for a date, and yet in my head, all I could think of saying was something along the lines of “I’m sorry, it should never have happened.”
