Sorry everyone, kinda short chapter this time! Enjoy though!

137. Chapter 137 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 8] (1633 words)
Hey all! I have a small favor to ask. As readers of this story, I'm hoping that maybe there's some things that you wanted to know or have happen that didn't. What I'm asking of you is to think about what kind of extra things associated with the story you'd like to have. Not necessairly things to have happen in the story, but something to go along with it. Be it maybe an option to write with questions to me, or ya know, something like a suppliement from the characters. One of my friends suggested reading some of Veronica's poems, and that's a possiblity. So yes, if you have anything you'd like to see from any of the characters in the story, be it Lynne, or Veronica or Nick or any of the guys, I would ask that you please email me with your suggestions through my author page here on the site! I look forward to hearing your ideas.

Enjoy!

PS. Also if anyone would like to see the bear let me know, he really does exist!

138. Chapter 138 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 12] (1337 words)
Ahh the long awaited chapter. I think this turned out to be a lot of fun! If anyone knows the proper name for the airport, can you please let me know so I can make the correction? Thanks and enjoy!

139. Chapter 139 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 9] (1418 words)
A little help please. I'm looking for someone to assit me with my story. I don't want to go into too much detail and a lot is not needed at all. I'm looking for someone who is usually online either Sunday or Monday evenings and is on for a few hours at a time. I need someone who is willing to spend probably about 15-20 min with me on this particular thing. Like I said, it's not anything huge or whatever. I do ask that if you are interested, not to leave me f/b, but to email me directly through my bio page on the site here and let me know. I'll make my decision in a few weeks or so depending on if I get responses or not.

Thanks everyone!

143. Chapter 143 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 12] (1724 words)
This is an interesting chapter. My friends who've read it already, were a little...appalled by it, which kind of confused me. I think they thought of it in a different way than I intended. I'm curious to see if anyone else has the same issues with it. I'll just say this, it's not how it looks, and I did not write it with the intention of it being something...wrong or controlling. Actually, there were a couple things, I'll see if anyone else picks up on the second one.

In anycase, I'm anxious to hear what you think.

Enjoy!

144. Chapter 144 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 11] (1158 words)
Thanks for all your responses to the last chapter. Lots of different things said. Maybe appalled was the wrong word, I guess shocked was probably more appropriate for my friends. I have to say even though I felt back for V, I also felt bad for Nick. In any case, this chapter should clear up a lot of questions. Enjoy!

145. Chapter 145 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 10] (1436 words)

146. Chapter 146 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 13] (2171 words)
This is a fun chapter and I really love the song. While it may seem like it really doesn't have anything to do with them, it really does. If anyone has seen "The Wedding Date", that song was in that movie during the love scene between the two main characters on the boat. I LOVE this song!

Anyway, enjoy!

147. Chapter 147 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 6] (1269 words)

148. Chapter 148 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 10] (3325 words)
Alright I just wanted to say that there is a song in this chapter that for those of you who download and are interested, may want to get if you don't already have the cd prior to reading this chapter. I know that most people probably don't listen to this person, but this song is PERFECT for this chapter and for Nick's character. It's a beautiful song called "My Confession" by Josh Groban. Kinda funny, same name as a song from Nick's cd. Completely different kind of song though. Anyway, enjoy!

149. Chapter 149 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 9] (1357 words)
Alright, the song in this chapter I loved the first time I heard it and used in my story before it was released. Unfortunately everyone that I asked about it, hadn't heard it at the time and wasn't into her music. It's by Gwen Stefani and it's her new single "4 In The Morning". I was so surprised when I found out it was her current single! This song is PERFECT for these two and I was so excited when I was writing this chapter because I just couldn't get over how this song described these two and their relationship. It could be from either point of view I think, but I chose to use V. In anycase, I don't wanna keep suggesting people to get songs, but if you happen to catch it on the radio, or if you have her current cd (which is AMAZING by the way ;0) ) you might wanna listen to the song while reading.

Anyway, enjoy all!

Wahoo I got two chapters written today so you get two updates! Enjoy!

152. Chapter 152 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 10] (1030 words)
This is a cute chapter. I don't know why, but Nick reminds me of the character I talk about in this chapter, minus the haircolor, but yeah. I am in fact a huge fan of Cinderella, my fave fairy tale, therefore the whole castle thing would be a dream of mine, I would be all about taking pics! I'm particularly happy with how the end turned out, a bit cheesy, but I think it's sweet and so Nicklike.

Enjoy!

153. Chapter 153 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 15] (294 words)
Short chapter all, but enjoy!

155. Chapter 155 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 12] (1963 words)
Ahh I have a feeling a lot of people are gonna be angry at me over this chapter and I'm prepared for it. Then again, you have to see it from her perspective as well. In any case, I hope you enjoy!

156. Chapter 156 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 4] (652 words)
Sorry all, short chapter!

157. Chapter 157 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 10] (440 words)
Ok, ooooooooone more chapter for today. I got two chapters written tonight, so you get two chapters as an update. Unfortunately, another short one. I hope you enjoy nevertheless!

158. Chapter 158 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 8] (1998 words)
I really enjoyed writing this chapter, one part in particular. All I'll say is it's right after Nick gets off the phone. I've always wanted to write something like that, I love the way authors can give their male leads this air of...mystery, and almost preditory actions mixed this huge amount of sexual tension and have things happen without things actually happening if that makes sense.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy and I hope you'll let me know what you think!

159. Chapter 159 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 13] (2760 words)
Ok, I LOVE this chapter. I love the whole pool scene. I'm wondering if anyone can figure out what it is exactly Nick's talking about doing with Veronica this one time that he's never had to before and didn't want to. I'm anxious to see if anyone can get the point I was trying to make and what he was doing.

Anyway I love this chapter, I think it's a lot of fun. Please let me know what you think!

Enjoy!

164. Chapter 164 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 10] (1841 words)
This is a fun chapter. I'm particularly proud of Veronica for several reasons in this chapter, but for one major reason, I think everyone will agree with. And the plot continues to thicken. With chapter 173 that I'm working on right now, I've hit 600 pgs, which is huge for me. I will say that the story ends with chapter 175, that's the little bit I'll give away.

Enjoy!

165. Chapter 165 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 4] (1440 words)
Ahh pivitol chapter here everyone. I'm anxious to hear what you all think.

Enjoy!

166. Chapter 166 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 9] (1157 words)
I'm so happy with how this chapter turned out, very happy. I think it's believeable to an extent. Mini Disclaimer: I don't know Nick or claim to know what he's thinking. All made up, I have nothing to backup the statments made in this chapter. Ok that's that. LOL Enjoy!

167. Chapter 167 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 10] (432 words)
Ok, I'm getting ready to work write the last chapter of the story now, 175. I have to say that it may be a little while before I post anymore chapters, that's all I can say at this point though. Hang there for me though please!!!

Enjoy!

168. Chapter 168 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 13] (1147 words)
Alright, I realize that as a reader myself, I can't keep people waiting too long because then they lose intrest. And while I'm not quite where I need to be at this time, I'm gonna post another chapter of the story anyway. I'm currently underway of outlining for my new story and I'm anxious to share it with everyone. I'm hoping that once this story is complete, some or even better all of you, will stick with me and read my new story. If not, that's cool too! Anyway, about this chapter. This is a great chapter, I love the song. If anyone is a Napoleon Dynamite fan, you'll reconize the song as the one that plays at the very very end of the movie when Deb and Neo are playing tetherball. The song so fits their situation, more Nicks' pov than V's, although there are some of the words that fit V's pov too. Besides, it's just a great song!

Enjoy all!

169. Chapter 169 by Gravity 721 [Reviews - 14] (763 words)
Ahh finally we get the answer from Veronica. What will it be? Hang in there everyone, almost finished!
