Very well-written, as always :) but sad! I agree with some of the other reviewers, not sure I could take anymore of this. I love that Chester chose his family. I know, I know, I'm betraying my Bennoda heart, but it's nice to see something different. It's nice to see one of them say no, my wife and kids are more, even if it's not what my heart wants. I love the image of Talinda playing with the girls while the movers fill the trucks. The whole exchange between her and Chester was heartbreaking, her knowing there was a change, but not sure what. Gosh, you wrote that whole section so well.

I'm glad you shared this with us. Even though it's not chapters, it packed a super powerful punch. It's great to see you back on the site.

This was so good, so sweet, but so hopeless and sad at the same time. This is always a conflicted reality for me, because I love and adore Bennoda to death, but I love Anna and Talinda and all the LP wives too. So it's always sad to see those two realities collide, but it also makes for great writing.

Moving his family to Arizona might work in the short term, but what about touring? Those feelings won't go away, they'll just get harder to suppress, which makes this whole situation quite tragic...

You put so much emotion into a single scene, which can be quite hard to do, but it really touched me. Also, I liked how innocent this Bennoda was. No smut, just pure feelings <3

I can only agree with all the other reviews, this was really really sad! So beautifully written but also so incredible sad.

Knowing that you want more but cannot have it... fuck, that must be so hard. Moving to another state to forget about it? That's drastic and I see why Ches thinks it's right but Mike and Talinda both see behind the mask and they both know that he isn't ok and that a move will not change a thing about that.

Reading that Mike feels the same was just... argh... you guys, you could be together instead of miserable and far from one another! I see that you can't just dump your families, of course you can't. But just going on distance is not going to solve anything. Especially not when you are mentally fragile the way Ches is. After ending the tour early and being in such a bad mental state, this is not going to help!!

Anyway, I can't change it and I'm also not sure if I would want you to change anything about this. As I said, it's beautifully written and as sad as it made me, I like it the way it is <3

I agree 100% with lpfan503. So sad. :( I kept waiting and hoping for them to kiss or for Chester to change his mind but neither happened. Which sucks but I understand. I mean...not every story can be happy, right? I really felt this though. </3 Which just means, especially with just being a one-shot, that you wrote this really well. And you certainly did. Nice job! And nice to see you back, by the way. :)

Ugh. This made me so sad. Any time our boys don't end up together, it hurts. Just imagining that pining for each other... *tears*

The fact that Chester is aware enough of his feelings to move to Arizona is just heart wrenching, as was Mike showing up because Chester was shutting him out. I'm pretty sure that distance won't solve the problem, when they both feel the way they do. God, this just made me so sad for them. The way they were both holding back tears while trying to get their feelings across without saying anything, just... yeah. It made me feel things. I'm kinda glad there isn't anymore, to be honest, I don't know if my heart could take it.
