Oh no! Poor Evelyn! He could at least break up with her before doing this… or maybe he didn’t and left before it got that far… but still. It shows that he definitely doesn’t care for Evelyn as much as he did beforehand, because else he wouldn’t have thought about this. It’s weird just how much he seems to have changed between the camping trip and now 😦
Lucas had definitely changed over the years! I did worry that the change in their relationship dynamic would feel kinda sudden, so I appreciate the feedback that it kinda did! Too late for me to go back and change things, but it’s good to keep in mind for the future of this story.
It’s been four years since the camping trip (Lucas had just turned 17 at that time, now he’s 21) so that’s a lot of time he’s spent slowly getting “stuck” in his relationship.
He loves Evelyn, he really does. But things aren’t working out the way he’d hoped, unfortunately!

Yeah I can totally understand that, I mean it is a bit of a problem with the whole her being a ghost thing XD

Hahahaha wow, are you replying to a comment that’s nearly a year old? XD now THAT’S dedication Hehehehehe 😛 And yes, the ghost thing was always their problem, unfortunately! 😦
This comment gave me major nostalgia for the early days of D2D, so thank you for this 😛
You’re welcome XD I tend to not notice things I should until way too late LoL
Nope, I’m totally hating and judging!!!! Gosh, that was painful to watch/read! I was angry and in tears for Evie the entire time!!
Sorry you feel that way 😦 I appreciate your attachment to my characters and that my story was able to affect you so much (but I’m sorry that it was in a bad way…)
lol, nah I know it has to get bad before it can get better…I don’t necessarily judge him for the flirting…I judge him for the drinking that led to the flirting!!! Also his buddies, just noooope! XD
Well, I sort of knew where it was heading after reading Rory’s comment last time and considered Lucas being the character you feared being hated rather than Evelyn. But, I didn’t expect it this way. Wow, I mean, I know he was drunk and that’s usually their excuse but was he really? Did he still knew what he was doing. If he hadn’t drunk any, would he still had gone? What will he think tomorrow? (again, in game XD) Will he tell Evelyn something or will this make him realize he wants other things… If Evelyn finds out – I mean she has to eventually, nothing ever stays hidden – what will she think? How will this affect her feelings and everything else. So many things that could happen.
By the way, awesome chapter. I love these kind ( I say it because there are now two) and obviously it didn’t need the words.
All good questions! You’ll find out in tomorrow’s chapter what Lucas’ thoughts are the next morning… Sorry it didn’t really stay a surprise… I say too much on the forums XD But maybe it helped soften the blow for some people? Hahaha. And thank you for the compliment about the wordless chapters! They are the most work, but also the ones that end up being my favorites!
It’s okay if you talk about it, that’s what the forums are for. Even if I saw it coming, I didn’t know how it would happen. I actually thought he was just going to walk away or fall in love with another girl, definitely not this.
Don’t worry too much about how the story is going, I think it’s coming along great and even if there are time jumps, they’re making sense. Sometimes people will hate characters but that doesn’t mean they don’t like the story. Don’t we all go through that with movies and books?
Thanks for your nice comment! 🙂 And it’s true, we all get angry at or hate some characters sometimes 😛
Poor Evelyn. But looking at the relationship Lucas has with her, he’s frustrated. I wonder what will happen! 🙂
I’m still a fan no matter what Lucas does. I love your work and the drama in the story. 🙂
Aw, thank you! 🙂 If you love drama, then you will definitely love the rest of this story XD (and there’s still SO much more to come!)
I do love drama. 🙂
Nooooooo 😦 😦 😦
That was amazing! No words needed to get all of those messages. I’m not mad at Lucas!
frustration + juice + peer pressure = another woman
simple math LOL
Hahahaha not everyone else was so forgiving, so it’s nice to see someone who doesn’t hate his guts right now 😉
Well, yeah! I mean, true, he shouldn’t have done that, but I can totally see why! He’s in a terrible position, and I kinda don’t blame him. Besides, what else can you expect from a drunken evening? lol
This is exactly what would and should have happened. He should try dating real people too. If his love for Ev is stronger then it’ll work out. I just hope he went back to her place or a hotel. No need to rub it in where she can see.
I think he didn’t go elsewhere. Which is so…not cool.
I think you win the prize for most open-minded about this whole situation (which both Lucas and myself appreciate 😉 Haha thanks 😛 )
I don’t need my heroes to be good. I want them believable. And at 21, this was believable. Plus I think important to his development. In his world, ghosts can’t become real. I would highly recommend he look at other women…although probably not women just looking for a young drunk boy in over his head for a one-night fling. He could do better.
Hmph… I kinda felt it was heading this way but still make me feel sad for Evelyn 😥
GAH.. Inevitable. Darn fleshy reality! *shakes fist*
Fabulous writing and story, by the way! I’ve been reading the whole damn thing in one sitting, lol!
“Darn fleshy reality!” May be the greatest thing I’ve ever read in my life OMG XD
P.S. Cute freckles on the homewrecker! *snort*
Forgive me, but I’ve gotta say one more thing: The wordless thing works so well for this – it’s like he’s sneaking out on all of us; we aren’t “there,” just powerlessly watching. Very smart!
Thank you!!!! This time, that’s an ‘effect’ that was actually intentional 😛
NO! Bad Lucas. Bad!
That skank!!! lol I knew it as soon a I saw the picture where she wiggled her rear end his way…Why Lucas why!!??? Whatever will Eve think?
Hello Virtualee! I just saw your post on the forum thread recently! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the story, but I’m sorry for this chapter haha. It was very difficult to do this one, because it was so painful! Please don’t hate Lucas TOO much though haha 😛 Thank you for reading!
Hahahaha I know, he was very bad here 😦
Lucas a bad boy in this
I’m having a hard time properly describing this interlude, so I’ll say what I said out loud when I saw the last few pictures:
“Well this isn’t going to end well…”
I’m “liking” this comment haha even though I feel bad for leaving you at such a loss for words haha. Thank you for continuing to read my story and I hope you’re enjoying it! 🙂
NOOOO!!!!!! WHY LUCAS ::( Why did you flirt with a beautiful girl at the party when you have Evelyn? Evelyn will find out this and she’ll be storming mad at you!
Yes, not Lucas’ proudest moment… 😦 But, as beautiful and wonderful as Evelyn is, she’s not ALIVE, and Lucas really wanted to experience something physical with someone he could actually FEEL. I don’t think he would have acted on these urges without the alcohol though
Uh, oh Lucas seems to have found a living lovebird. Should make things interesting.
Lucas is definitely making some unwise decisions right now… What would Evelyn say? 😮
My original plan was to binge read the whole story before leaving one like summary/review-type comment, but I can’t just pass this interlude without saying anything. The whole time I was like bouncing in my seat shouting “Noooooooo!”
BUT I really admire you for taking the story in this direction. I agree with another reader here in that I think this was necessary. And totally believable. I can’t hate Lucas for this. UGH GREAT STORYTELLING!
Hi Rinellie! I recognize you from the lounge! Thank you SO much for reading!!!! (And commenting! I like long review comments, but comments along the way are nice too ^_^)
This chapter has always been one of my favorites, despite it being a bit controversial hahaha I’m glad that it feels believable to you and that you don’t hate Lucas hehe 😛
I really really appreciate you reading and sharing your thoughts! Thank you! 🙂
Oh, Lucas, you beautiful moron.
Hahaha this comment made me laugh. poor Lucas XD
Just so you know….I did NOT want to “like” this chapter. I pushed the button anyway, but I didn’t want to.
I agree with Rae, though. Drinking and being 21, realistically, he would find other women attractive that have something he can touch. I may not like this chapter, but I’m seriously beginning to really love this story. Don’t get me wrong. I loved the story already, but, for some reason, this chapter is a turning point for me. He’s real and Evelyn is not. Life must go on. Sadly. Now, I’m still rooting for Evelyn and Lucas, of course, but my mind needs to remain open.
Ugh. Obviously I knew there was another woman coming along eventually based on the extreme comments made during the time when you were still posting this story–doesn’t make it any easier to see, though. Ev is going to be heartbroken and I know Lucas is going to feel so torn it will hurt him, too.
There is another woman… But not this one! (I think you probably know who by now though? XD *seeing your comments hours later*)
Thank you! You bring up really excellent points about their relationship! When I set out to write this story in the first place, I started thinking about all the reasons why this relationship really would have a hard time working in the long run. Here we have a prime example!
Whaaattttt????? Lucas Ainsworth, I see where your future great-great-great-great-great (you get it) grandkids or whatever the A2A heirs/spares are to you get it from.
Hahahaha yeahhhhh he was so bad in this one 😦 I felt awful.
