    Awwwww. Elan looks so adorable with his hands in his pockets, eyes downcast asking a favor. I just hope The Governor is worthy of all the trust Elan is putting in him. Though he hasn’t really given Elan a reason to mistrust him so far…..

    • Maria C. Cezar Garcia

      mice said he’s not nice >:

      • Dokidokibaka

        Well, in general, he isn’t. But not nice people have been known to do nice things from time to time. We must not forget though, that for a not nice guy, he hasn’t really shown that to Elan much. He doesn’t exactly hide what he does, but he could have really done things to mess Elan up if he wanted to. I mean there is still a high possibility that he will keep both the money for him and the money to pay off Jake’s bet. Elan is putting a lot of trust in a guy that I would try to avoid.

        • I AM R U

          Rafa says he’s not nice too :(

          • Dokidokibaka

            *sigh* I am NOT saying he IS!!! That isn’t what I am saying! Have I ever said he was? Elan knows that he isn’t a good man, but he has not YET (as of this page) done a bad thing to Elan (that either Elan or us, the readers, know about).

            All I have said is that not nice people have been known to do nice things occasionally. Which is true. Whether or not that is true in this case, only themice knows.

            I am not saying that The Governor is a good guy and we should all go to him to solve our problems. There are many reasons he hasn’t been bad to Elan so far.

            1) He got taken in by Elan’s adorableness and has awoken long forgotten feelings.
            2) He got taken in by Elan’s adorableness and has wanted to win him over.
            3) He got taken in by Elan’s adorableness and wants to protect him from the worst of the slums.
            4) He got taken in by Elan’s adorableness and wants to make him his toy, so he is being careful. Because you only break a toy once it is yours. (well unless you break it so others cannot have it, but then you get only little to no enjoyment from it)
            5) He is being paid by Elan’s father to make him unsuitable for his mother’s inheritance. However it has to be done carefully and Elan cannot be forced to do it, but do it willingly.
            6) His own motives that have little or nothing to do with how adorable Elan is.
            etc

            He is so complex it could be all those things. You don’t become a Godfather-like figure by being completely ruthless, you have to know who is weak enough to take advantage of and who you should nurture and/or have on your team. And it takes great intelligence on how to read people quickly. The Governor story as Rafa knows it is ruthless, but as Elan knows it The Guv is just a businessman in a different setting.

          • Dokidokibaka

            hai hai. ^_^ hehehe, as someone who studied business for a time, ANY business can be extremely ruthless. Just because it is a legitimate business and not mafia-esque doesn’t mean there isn’t shady dealings. There just might be a bit more violence and such on the mafia end. High class crimes tend to be a bit more elegant.

            we got what you meant, it’s ok

          • D. Garrett

            um.. i just want to be clear on something… would it be ur opinion that the governor thinks elan is adorable? and would i be correct to assume that u think elan is adorable too? *cheeky grin. =^_^=

          • lol, yes I think Elan is very adorable, whether or not The Governor thinks so hasn’t really been made clear (I don’t think).

          • D. Garrett

            doki i was joking about ur usage of the word adorable. im just not witty enough it seems!

          • lol. ^_^ it’s all good! ^_^ I could tell you were teasing. ^_^

            ….I mean I didn’t have to use that word in almost every reason. I could have used different words. ^_^

          • D. Garrett

            i thought it was cool. made me chuckle. he is adorable after all!

          • themice

            You’ll find out why Rafa hates him so much. He isn’t nice, but he is a forward-thinker too.

        • D. Garrett

          yeah i am uncomfortable with elan just forking over cash to him. maybe arranging a meet would have ensured the actual payment being made. though it would have been much more dangerous.

      • themice

        Not nice. Not stupid.

    • Ninhursag

      Other than that he is a pedophile, “21 is too old”, remember?
