the fact remains

the fact remains




"What if he did it on purpose?" Ruben looked at Garvin as if he needed to do something about what happened at the photo shoot. "What if this boyfriend of Leo's thinks ..you're interested..in Leo?"

Garvin felt a laugh deep inside him, but really he was too tired to think such a thing. He was out of it himself, after the afternoon fiasco. He was happy when Abe called and asked him to dinner.

"It was just a seizure." Garvin shook his head. After all, he wasn't using his newest cameras, just his favorite cameras for the shoot. He guessed he would have to learn to love his new digital camera. But it was his old one that made the best black and whites that he developed himself. He had managed  later to edit some photos of Leo, even if Leo did look rather distraught. Who knew? Maybe it would work for Leo. But he needed to get the photos in. He needed to get Leo's picture out there.

"I hope, you know, what you're doing." Naturally, Ruben wouldn't have any faith in him. His dear brother was like that.

"I'm very professional." Garvin assured him. He'd done his part and called it a night, even if he wished he could have stayed around for Leo. Garvin didn't know if Leo went to the hospital to check on Henry or not. He guessed it was none of his business. "I hope the kid is all right."

Garvin remained even lipped. At least, he wasn't sitting in silence in his flat, upstairs from his shop, with a bowl of chicken noodle soup. He dug into the chili. It was good to eat with Abe, who always had something new to show him.

"I'm going to be in Martha's wedding." Abe soon told him.

"Well, I can't wait for that." Garvin forced a grin with plenty of enthusiasm.

Dorian shook his head. "Who knew there would be so many weddings." He sighed, as he began to talk more about it. "Martha wants all these people in her wedding. I'm not even sure where the wedding will be."

"At Brice's house." Abe informed him.

"Brice's house?" Garvin winced.

"Yeah, she loves his house. It'll be at Brice's house." Abe smiled brightly as if he'd planned it there, all along.

Just one more thing Garvin felt left out about, but he guessed he'd manage, just like Leo's boyfriend and his seizures.

I hope Leo is okay after the seizure... and funny that they thought Leo's boyfriend would be worried about him being with someone else when all Garvin was doing was helping him...

I hope Henry can get help for his seizures.
