A good chapter. Not very eventful, but you need to have those sorts of chapters, I know that. x)
I really like the sequel, and I'm looking forward to the next update. I've kinda dropped off the face of the earth with my writing, so I like reading other people's stuff to give me motivation and inspiration.
Nonetheless, good chapter; I like how Gerard is so oblivious of Gia's obvious discomfort and home difficulties - especially with her step-dad and smoking/sex and such.
