Dublin Delights

   Sean and Aaron arrived home safe and stayed that way, their relationship flourishing behind the backs of the thespians.  Before anyone else they came out to their families.  Aaron's was very supportive.  They really all got along.  Sean on the other hand had a different story.  Sean's mother became indifferent to the subject and his father tried with all his power to turn him away from the `dark side.'  All efforts were unsuccessful.  They still plan on going to Ireland again, alone.

   Doug was branded an outcast as were Mark, who did it to himself, and Derek.  All three became friends.  One of the strangest friendships ever.

   John and Tim both fell for girls, however, they did have sex one more time.  But coming to the conclusion that gay sex wasn't for them.  John ended up dating Nicole and Tim luckily ended up dating April. 

   Megan is just as strange as ever.  She abandoned her philosophy of `you don't want to see it, don't look.'  Much to the disappointment of many guys.

   The trip to Ireland was a great success and funding has begun to plan another trip out of country.  Plans are still in the preliminary stage so don't count on anything soon.

From the Author

   It has been nearly a year since I started this story and now, reluctantly, it is done.  I would like to thank everyone who has written in.  I try and respond to everyone, but I may miss a few.  There have been a few lulls in the submission of chapters, Over the past year, things in my life have significantly changed. 

   The story itself is based loosely on true facts.  Each of these people did exist, names have been changed.  If you go to Ireland you will see a Gresham Hotel on O'Connell St.  And directly to the right there will be a small café.  Although it's really not called that.  When I went on the trip I stupidly didn't keep a journal so writing this has helped me remember all of it.  Although all the love and sex was made up.

   Well, thanks for reading and listening to an authors ramblings.  I would Specifically like to thank a few people in particular.  The few nifty authors who helped me in the development of my first story.  Philip Mossburg who has edited many of the chapters.  I would like to thank the support that I have had from my family and my friends.  They mean the world to me.  Specifically Beth, Karla, and Amy.  Finally I would like to thank the job I have.  Sounds silly, but when I started, something in me snapped and I became a whole new person, of which one result is this story and others. 

   Speaking of others, please read "In the Blink of An Eye" also found in the high school section.

   I would like to end with the traditional Irish blessing
   "May the road rise up to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, and May the sun shine warm upon your face."
