I love this story! Glad to see it posted here  :) Welcome to bettermost  :-*

I haven't had a chance to read the newest chapter but hope to do so tonight!
‘cause the truth is, I already give him everythin’ I got to give, more than I ever even knew I had; ‘n it all for him, all of it, him who is my brother, my father, my child, my friend, my lover, my heart, my soul; my Ennis.

Love is blind? Good choice for a title. Several layers to it, and you are explouring those.  Dr. Reynoldo's house may be a save haven for now, but I don't think it is where they should be forever.  They need to go back into their world, and confront those who tried to kill Jack, and confront LD and Lureen, and try to explain things to Bobby and Jack's parents.  Then, they both can truly heal, and seek the right place to live their sweet life together. 

Thanks for the story.  I look forward to your updates. 
Thank you. Blindness is more than physical in the story--it's the love they share in all its complexity. And yes, I do feel they can not reach it by staying with the kind Doctor. He will be a source of healing, but more importantly a resource for Jack and Ennis to understand the world of the blind.

I've thought a lot about the vet and how he will continue in the story. He's got wisdom and an extra room for now that they can glean from.

Thanks for reading and thoughtful comment and analysis.

Hey, Chapter 12 is now up and ready to be read.

I backed off on the sex/bronco riding metaphor. It started taking over that whole exchange between the two. I went back and changed part of it. I have a tendency to trip over the edge sometimes. Let me know what you think…


this link also is to other chapters too...

El...... I love ya.... and I certainly love this story.  Jack telling Ennis about his accident.... guh...... Ennis holding him.  That was all so hard to hear.  I love the direction you are taking our guys.

Thanks Karen. I had a time writing parts of that--thought it came out well in the end. Right now I'm a bit muddled in the head, trying to think how to write the next chapter. I've started twice now. I was going to write the beginning from the vet's POV then changed my mind and am writing this next chapter from only Ennis' POV.

I always enjoy reading you're comments. I love ya too.  :D

Hi, el_wing,

I'm finally caught up with your story and wanted to drop you a line and thank you. I really like the original premise of your story and am very impressed with how well you've handled the issue of Jack's blindness and Ennis's reaction to it - so touching and so real. 

This line in this last chapter really jumped out at me -

"I need you Jack Twist, more 'n you ever'll need me."

How important for a blind Jack to hear those words.

Thanks again - I look forward to hearing Ennis' POV in the next chapter.

Thanks so much Marie. Having a close friend who is blind helps with the realism. Working on the next chapter. It's going well now. I was stuck for a few days there...

The part about Ennis needing Jack more will be telling in the coming chapters.

Thanks again for reading and commenting.

Thanks. I love reading comments of all kinds.
