Rain:615: Awfully Generous

Synopsis

Author Notes

Sorry if this one feels a little rushed.  I ended up making this a two pager so I could complete the scene before going on hiatus (I love my cliffhangers, but I wouldn't want to leave you for an extended period following a terribly incomplete thought).  And yet despite that (and all the dialogue and development going on here), it still reads like there should've been more to it.  At least to me.  Bah.  To the very end, the cursed scene still haunts me.  XD

Speaking of the hiatus, in case you hadn't heard: I'm having surgery again on Monday.  To clarify what's going on, let me start with a little good news.  I don't have cancer.  I did, but it was successfully taken out with the previous surgery back in October.  However, according to the biopsy, it turns out I had the most aggressive kind of testicular cancer one can have.  Still entirely treatable, but it is the most likely to spread.  So this new surgery is purely precautionary.  They'll be taking out the remaining testicle along with some lymph nodes.  It'll be a more intense surgery than last time, but I'm still young and otherwise healthy, so I should be fine.  

I could opt NOT to do this now, but if I don't and it does come back, I'd have to do this surgery anyway, plus chemo.  So as much I'm not eager to go through this again, I think it's better than the alternative.

Anyway, all of this equates to: Rain will be on hiatus for a while.  I don't know how long.  Last time it was two months, but that doesn't necessarily mean it will be that long this time.  I will be back to it as soon as I'm able though.  In the meantime, I will try to keep you posted and let you know how I'm doing and when I can come back.  And of course, like last time, I will only too happily accept fan art, fan fics, and fan whatever-you-want of all kinds.  ^_^

I know a lot of you will tell me not to worry about the comic; please don't.  As I had to repeat many times last time: it's not that I think the comic is the most important thing here, but it IS important to me.  I'm telling you all this because I want you to be informed so you know and understand why I'm not posting for several weeks in the middle of a chapter.  I don't want to be like some webcomics and just vanish without a word (because I have every intention of coming back to all my readers, who will hopefully be understanding and ready to read again when I'm ready to write again).

I might also request that we keep all genetalia-related comments to a minimum.  That got really uncomfortable really fast last time.  Thank you.

And... that's about it, Rain Beaus.  Keep those heads up high and take care of yourselves.  For now, see ya later!  

Transcript

Flashback:

I thought I was straight for so long. But now I'm questioning it all the time, because of YOU. And then you ended up not even being a guy! Whatever the case, now I'm checking out guys and second-guessing myself when I look at girls. And all my friends are making fun of me and I can't take this shit anymore.
Everything was so much easier before you came along.
Firstly, you need new friends. My friends would never make fun of me for being me.
Secondly, screw you. I don't know what you are, but don't go blaming me for it. You're the one who had the hots for me and HAD to see me again like some kinda stalker. I didn't do anything.
I didn't even remember you.
Uh, s-sorry. I'm just... I'm just frustrated. I thought I'd get some kind of clarity if I met you again.
Sigh... Look, I don't have the answers. But if you promise not to be an asshole to me, maybe we can figure you out together.

Present day:

And then we just kinda talked. Movies, music, games, and whatever. I caught him staring every now and then, but I don't think he's a bad guy. Just very confused.
That's awfully generous of you to offer to help. But why would you? Who is he to you?
I can just sympathize with him. He's having trouble finding himself because everyone's gotta make a big deal about it.
I've stopped caring about how people see me, but I understand how hard it can be to deal with.
You might've noticed I don't hang out with anyone from my own school. You're really the only ones that are okay with me as I am.
So, I just thought I'd pass that along to him, you know?
That's really cool of you, actually. I feel bad for usually brushing him off now. How do you "figure him out together" though?
He was really awkward yesterday with me there as a girl. So I said we should meet up again next time we were both available, and I was in boy mode. This way, we'll see if he's still awkward. And then, I guess we'll go from there.
But you're in boy mode now, aren't you?
Yeah, but when I called him this morning, he said he had prior plans. I guess next time then.
