    Summary

    When Robyn asks for his help with a problem she is facing, Johnny is expecting the worse.

    What he doesn't expect is his friend asking him if he and Gheorghe have ever thought about babies.

     

    Or Johnny, Gheorghe, a lot of self-doubt and a baby.

     

    On temporary hiatus due to a difficult real life situation. Hopefully I will be able to get back to it soon.

    Summary

    He is gone.

    He is gone and it’s all your fault, you think as you step in the dark, silent house.

     

    You stand there, at the door for a moment, closing your fists in a ball.

     

    Good riddance, you try to tell yourself.

    You will finally have a little bit of peace, you think as you insist on lying to yourself.

     

    It’s a lie and you know it.

    Summary

    With Gheorghe gone from the farm, Johnny’s mind was full of thoughts about him and everything that was destroyed by the stupid choices dictated by his addictions.

    So, broken hearted and full of regrets, he decided to drive away from the farm every night to go to a gay club in Bradford.

    After all, how difficult could it be to find strangers with foreign accents willing to spend one night with him?

     

    For the prompt: “After the pub scene, Johnny can't cope with Gheorghe's departure and resumes his nights in bars getting drunk. One morning Deirdre notices Johnny hasn't come back. He had a car accident on his way back home”.

    Summary

    This series reviews recommended LGBTQ films. I have tried to structure the reviews so that they give the reader sufficient information about the type of content and possible presence of triggers without spoiling the film.

    Summary

    After getting to know that Gheorghe was jealous of him and worried that Johnny might, one day, realise that perhaps a British partner would be better suited to be by Johnny’s side, Johnny took an important decision: he was going to take care of Gheorghe and take his fears away, just like Gheorghe had done with him, saving him from the pit he had inhabited for so long.

    Just….how was he going to achieve such an important goal in practice?

     

    Thank goodness a certain, cheeky lady gave him an idea.

    Summary

    Deirdre Saxby was a practical, no-nonsense woman.

    If there was work to be done, she did it, without a word of complaint, because she knew this was what one had to do in life.

    She had been there to support her family through thick and thin.

    She had lulled little Johnny to sleep after That Woman had left.

    So, when the young man she herself had hired turned out to be just a little more than what she had expected, the alarm bells were ringing in her head.

    Had she inadvertently brought more pain to the farm?

     

    or an exploration of the relationship between Deirdre and Gheorghe.

    Summary

    When old Bob O'Leary dies, his son, Leo, comes back to the village to take over the family shop.

    Johnny knows him, they were school mates so long ago that the memories seem to belong to someone else.

    When Leo asks him out for good old-times sake, Johnny decides to go, because that is what Gheorghe would do, right? He would be kind and help someone in need of a hand to re-acclimatise himself to the village.

    So.....why is Gheorghe looking so serious?

    Summary

    ‘He will come back’ his mother stated then, putting the fork down on the plate.
    ‘Too...painful’ he said.
    His voice failed him once more, making him feel frustrated on top of the nerves already cramping his body.
    He didn’t know what Johnny had done to the lad. He hadn’t asked anybody.
    He didn’t need to.

    He had recognised the anguish in Johnny’s eyes without the need for explanations.
    It was the same anguish he had seen in his own eyes long ago, reflected in a mirror on a seedy bar.

    A story he had never told his son.

    Perhaps, if he had told him that story, their relationship would not have been so fraught.

    Too late now.

     

    The story of Martin Saxby and his two loves.

    Summary

    Nobody had ever taught Johnny Saxby how to express himself.
    Nobody had ever taught him how to process his feelings without fear and anger.
    So, the night when he would have needed the right words the most, he failed to tell Gheorghe that he wanted him to stay.

    Many thanks to Anon for the prompt: “The pub scene didn’t happen. As planned, Gheorghe has this other job awaiting for him. He leaves”.
