Awesome chapter, in a sad and heart-wrenching kind of way. I loved how much Frank cares about him already and how Mikey is even starting to trust him at least a little bit, even if he is somewhat reluctant to do so due to the horrors of his past. You did this chapter really well; the way that there was a happy moment with Mikey eating the noodles and opening up to Fran about his parents, but the dropped in the bombshell about what his father did to him (rape?). I can't wait to see the reactions to this, as well as Gerard's reaction if/when hebfinds out about Mikey being anorexic.
Great job on a great chapter and you've got me desperate for more; I just HAVE to know what happens next! :D
Wow! Thank you so so so much! You've made me really happy! I'm so delighted that you liked it. I figured that there should be some sort of twist at the end and that's what happened. Gerard reaction will be in the next couple of chapters. I guess we will see what happens!
Thank you very much for reviewing and I hope to update soon!
