“Hi, honey, it’s me. I’m sorry I keep missing you…give me a call when you get the chance, OK? Talk to you soon, bye.”

Colin put down the phone, looking rather dejected. Ryan gazed at him sympathetically. “She’s still not picking up?” he asked.

Colin shook his head. It had become pretty obvious that Deb was ducking his phone calls. He’d been trying to get hold of her for the past few days, but so far she hadn’t called back. And whenever he dialed her cell phone number he got one of those ‘this cellular customer is not available at this time’ messages. She’d turned her phone off.

“I’m sorry, Col. I guess she just needs some more time,” said Ryan, coming to sit next to him on the bed. “She’ll be calling you back soon, I know it.”

Colin just shrugged, saying nothing. Ryan put his arms around his shoulders and squeezed. He knew that Colin was thinking of his son as well as his wife…it bothered Ryan that she hadn’t even had the courtesy to call her husband back when he was going through such a difficult time. At least Pat and the kids had been in touch with him, and had asked how Colin was doing. He hadn’t gone into the details, of course; he’d assured them that there was absolutely no danger in having Colin staying with him, but because of the troubles he’d had adjusting to his new condition, they might want to consider an extended vacation…maybe until school started again for the kids. Pat had seemed a little doubtful (or possibly suspicious) at that, but said she would consider it. She seemed in no great hurry to return home. Maybe she was seeing someone where she was.

“I guess so,” Colin finally murmured, resting his chin in his hands. “I’m worried about Friday.”

Ryan kissed him gently on the cheek, well aware that the upcoming production meeting had been on Colin’s mind. Colin knew about the conversations he’d had with Dan and Drew -- none of the particulars, but he’d guessed what they were about. He’d done his best to assuage his fears…and had told Colin there was no way in hell that he’d be kicked off the show, which was something Colin had been concerned about since he’d changed. Drew was surprisingly supportive, as was Greg. Wayne didn’t seem to care one way or the other. He hadn’t mentioned Brad’s apprehension; Ryan hoped he would be over it by the next time he was scheduled to appear. It wasn’t like Colin was going to leap on him and bite him or something. That was *Ryan’s* newest favorite thing, and he wasn’t about to share it with anyone. He’d realized the other night – after another of their frenzied feeding/lovemaking episodes -- that he was nearly as possessive of Colin as Colin was of him. There were times he almost wished that Deb would break off all contact with Colin…almost. It would hurt Colin too much if she did.

“Don’t worry,” Ryan assured him. “The meeting’s going to go fine. Trust me.”
