Ahh, little devil cousins, I've got a bunch of those too. It gets like torture sometimes, running after them :P
And just pheeeew! They saved Gerard :) For a moment there he seemed like he had learnt his lesson, but then... Gahhh, he needs the guys to pull him through this thing. And Frank, holding him and crying, the way you described that, with Gerard only barely aware of the person by his side, feeling his tears fall on his face, thinking of Frank as an angel... My eyes actually watered. Moving.
But now he's angry and I actually think he has a right to be, I mean I would be pissed, too. And still crying and... there's just too much emotion in this story.
Please update as soon as you can, I can't wait for the confrontation. I can already tell I'll most probably cry reading the next chapter.
My cousin threatened to cut my arm off for not letting her play on my laptop. It can't get much worse than that.
Anyway, thank you very much. You have no idea how much I love your reviews. They're freaking amazing.
Next chapter...god, I'm under pressure now. I gotta write something good. If you're disappointed by it, I'm sorry upfront.
