    Summary

    As time went by, he found himself seeking out some kinds of stories above others. Some made him ache with jealousy—wholesome families, protective siblings. Some felt distant and dull, especially when “coming of age” seemed to mean “find a girlfriend.” But friends—friends could be found. You didn’t have to be born with them. There was still hope, away from home, away from his mother...

    He kept reading stories. Stories were all he had. He fought back the loathing that the touch of a book cover sometimes gave him, tried to fill his dreams with things other than nightmares.

    'Um,' says Martin at last. 'No I- I don't- I don't hate you? Is that a- a- problem?'

     

     

    After returning from America, Jon shoots his shot. It goes... surprisingly well, given that it's him.

    Unfortunately there's also the matter of the Magnus Institute Employee Code Of Conduct Rules Regarding Romantic Relationships Between Employees, and all of the supplementary paperwork that needs to be filled in every time they go on a date.
