Back to the hard part

 Fixing it so Jake, who's becoming more and more hurt and angry and irritated by Antony's growing fear and uncertainty, actions that make him push Jake away...I have to figure out how to make sure Jake wants to stay a part of his life... Antony does his best to be supportive but has so many secrets and plans going on that he won't share with Jake, it starts becoming clearer and clearer their relationship if way too one-way.
Add into that a guy as cool, calm and collected as Lemm sending out signals he'd give Jake just about everything he ever wanted in a relationship, and it's beginning to churn.

So that's what the story's boiling down to -- why does Jake stay with Tone? Because Antony does not make it easy on the poor guy. At all. For reasons he won't...or is afraid to...share.

But Lemm...he's 19, completely self-aware, in total control of himself, and uses that strength to increase Jake's interest in him. without ever saying a word. As Spock would say, "Fascinating."

What's even crazier is, when Lemm shows an interest in Matt, Jake even gets jealous.

I didn't see that coming, but Matt doesn't mind.
