Layton knew things were not so great with Lou, his live in
boyfriend of six years, but to come home and catch him
having sex with another man was the last thing he expected.
But worse than Lou cheating on him, was the discovery that
he wasnít using any protection. With the fear of being
exposed to HIV on his mind Gabe turns to his best friend,
Dean Bannon. Gabeís out of control life becomes even more
unwieldy when the best friend heís known almost all his
life, and believed was 100% heterosexual reveals that he
himself is in love with Gabe and would be happy to see Lou
always known he was attracted to both sexes but he knew his
life would be easier if he lived it as a straight men.
After he saw all that Gabe had to go through when he came
out, he knew he didnít want to have to deal with that. His
feelings for Gabe only grew stronger and now that an
opportunity presented itself to be with Gabe he was not
going to let it pass them by, but with so much on his mind,
convincing Gabe that they were meant to be more than friends
may not be easy.
Positive Possibilities was a sweet story, full of
good and bad revelations for the three major characters.
Poor Gabe found himself with a lot to think about. Although
he knew exactly what to do where Lou was concerned, Dean had
his mind befuddled. Dean and Gabe had a great relationship
and I can understand Gabeís unwillingness to cross the line
from friendship to something more.
something else, even caught red-handed he didnít have much
remorse for his actions until Gabe proved serious about
putting him out. I do have to admit I did feel a bit sorry
for him towards the end. Even though Gabe had a passing fear
of all that Lou may have exposed him too, the HIV sub plot
was not really delved into. Positive Possibilities
was an entertaining story, and it would be interesting
to learn how things progressed with Gabe and Dean.
