This is a fun one… hope Nate doesn’t gross you all out. 😉

Chapter 15 – Nate tries to make good on his promise to Emi, but is having a difficult time. She tries to be supportive, hoping her friendship is enough of a distraction to keep his cravings at bay. In art, he reveals the painting he’d been working on. Emi knows she was the inspiration– knows he painted it for her– but he tells her he’s keeping it. Deep down, this makes Emi happy, and it confuses her. After school, Nate drives Emi to his house for rehearsal. Emi agrees to a deal that will have her giving up something, too– her anger for her father.
