chapter 22:  with dancing!  http://louisev.livejournal.com/281397.html

SPOILERS


Aw, poor Colson, not knowing how to dance and dying of embarrassment.  But he did it!  And the image of the "Saturday Night Fever" dance after he's had a few is too funny!   

"Yer different. Let’s go.”

Yes, Ellery is definitely one of a kind!  LOL!  This is a trip Colson will never forget!   ;D

Thanks, Louise.

Going to the nudist beach, dancing to 'Saturday Night Fever', I wonder what Ellery's got planned next for their holiday. I sure hope it will last a bit longer before they have to get back to real life.

And Colson is soooo adorable when he's embarassed.

„I just want ta eat you up when you blush so pretty,” Ellery said, leaning close to Colson’s ear.

Awwww, so sweet!

Thanks Louise.  :)

I had to do a lot of thinking before I posted that chapter... it's a delicate balance between Colson's desire to please his man and his social discomfort.  But things will surely never be the same!

I think you definitely hit the right note Louise. I don't think Colson will be hitting the dance floor any time soon back home. But when you're on holiday and you've had a few drinks, things happen!

I'm very happy for them.  :)

Holy moly!!!!!

...a challenging smirk on his face.

Ellery knows what to expect when he gives that look, but Colson managed to surprise him, too, didn't he?  LOL!  And I'm sure Ellery, with his superior detective skills, will have no problem finding what he's looking for - but I'm wondering if he'll get Colson to accompany him on his shopping trip?  :laugh:  Great stuff, Louise!

Thanks,
Marie

sooo just in case you folks haven't become so jaded by my surprise plot twists, complications and aggravations... this time the vacation is NOT a bust!  I couldn't do that to them again!

Well, Paula sure managed to keep a cool head with that Thyssen character. He was insulting her a as a woman AND as a professional lawyer and she still kept it as civil as possible. Go Paula!

Gawd, the crap women had to take (and still have to take I guess) from imbeciles like that man! Grrrr

Good to hear Colson and Ellery will be able to enjoy their holiday for a little while longer. Thank you Paula and thank you Wes! And you too Louise.  :)  :)
