Great chapter!  I love that Nick and Brian are messing around in secret, but Brian needs to man up and break it off with Leighanne instead of cheating on her behind her back.  I also enjoyed the meeting scene.  It makes me so angry to think about their managers making Brian postpone his surgery, forcing him to go back on the tour so soon afterward, and making him feel like his health was less important than sticking to the group's tour schedule.  Ridiculous.  It was sad to see that none of the other guys were really sticking up for Brian, except Nick, and even he wasn't very vocal during the actual meeting.  I've probably said this before, but I love how you're interweaving the romance with the real life drama with Lou and the heart surgery and all of that.

Thanks Julie! I think that was one of the things that started driving Brian away was the fact that nobody seemed to support him except for Leighanne. I feel that is the reason he hasn't left her yet, because he's so afraid to be alone. Sure he and Nick are messing around but at the end of the day he still is in that mindset of what is acceptable and what isn't.

I think stuff like this meeting happened in real life as well, I'm glad you feel it's realistic. Thanks so much for reading.

That makes sense.  Leighanne definitely has Brian's back, and I think the fear of being gay is still at play for sure.

Oh, I'm sure meetings like that really happened.  From what Brian has said, it seemed totally believable.  That's what makes me mad.

Great couple of chapters to catch up on.  I agree that Brian is still scared of admitting he's gay, he's trying to lie to himself that he's straight and really does care for Leighanne, but she's not Nick.

The management make me annoyed, I'm sure they were just like that towards Brian when he had his surgery Sad

Glad to see this updated again!  I loved Chapter 26.  Good for Brian calling Nick out on being a hypocrite because he's only come out to one person himself.  And that shower scene... steamy!  I loved the description of Nick massaging Brian's biceps and shoulders.  Drool.  I was a little surprised Brian let him go in the back door just like that, LOL, but I guess they had to give it a shot sooner or later.  I think this is the first slash I've ever read that I've been able to take seriously and suspend my disbelief enough to enjoy.  I definitely have a different perspective on it after writing SAMS, but I still haven't read many slash stories, so it's a huge credit to you for developing their romantic relationship in a way that makes me root for them.  Keep up the great work!

LOL I am glad you enjoyed that shower scene, I was inspired by Brianís shirtless gym photo and was able to come up with that description, I drooled while writing it.

It was about time Brian told Nick he was being a hypocrite because he canít tell Brian to be honest when he himself is not being honest. it doesnít work both ways, Nick lol.

As I told you on twitter, this was my first slash sex scene I wrote so I was very nervous to post this chapter as I wasnít sure how it would read. I think all their fooling around led up to them finally having sex. Iím glad their relationship feels realistic cause thatís what I was going for. Thanks for all the compliments Smiley

Glad to see this story updated!  I enjoyed the new chapter.  I liked the back story about watching gay porn with Lou.  If Nick really were gay, it would make a lot of sense that that was what first made him aware of his feelings.  I was surprised but happy that Nick came out to Kevin like that and even happier to see Kevin accept him.  I wonder what Brian will have to say when he finds out that Kevin knows about him and Nick.  Looking forward to the next chapter!

I loved the new chapter!  Brian's being kind of a dick about this whole thing.  I'm glad Kevin talked to him about it.  Brian saying the words "I'm gay" aloud, even if he didn't mean to, is a big step.  Now he needs to be honest with Leighanne.  I thought the thing they didn't expect to happen next would be her walking in on them, but then I remembered they're in Nick's room, not Brian's.  I wish she would, though; she needs to know what's been going on behind her back.
