    Rafa, are you becoming a reader? Going to build some confidence in your intelligence beyond your street-smarts? Yay!

      I am feeling hopeful that in this painful break and taking-stock time, our two are learning things that will help them be together more strongly later. Rafa has become more introspective, learned that he’s outgrown Jake, and that he does want committed love in his life. Elan has learned that he can physically defend himself and remembered that he can be physically desirable, even though he doesn’t realize the emotional commitment Rafa has to him.

    I had a different take on this image. I thought of it as Rafa putting Elan’s diary away. A necessary “letting go” before the next step in the story. That said, I wonder if Mice means “fun-filled” literally or sardonically. I suspect Chapter Three might make the drama of the previous two look like a picnic.

      Hmm, interesting. But necessarily exclusive.
