Aww, I’m glad they were able to be sensible about it and agree without either one of them freaking out TOO much. But I bet those condoms are going to come back to haunt whoever keeps them, hehehe. Hello there future plot device, it’s nice to meet you.

lol, I guess we all kind of saw this coming. It was fun exploring this relationship with more focus and in particular, this situation of sexual curiosity, and especially arousal at their age.
They’re both good people and even though I wanted to at least see a little bit of action between them (I guess there was already some of that in the first few pages), I am somewhat relieved nonetheless that they decided to wait.
Emotions are a difficult thing to deal with and especially when it comes down to something like sex (your body sends you all those signals about how good it’s going to be, then afterwards your brain goes “aww, ****”), so I can definitely say they’ve made a mature decision here and they should be proud of it.
This isn’t to say those who have decided to have sex have made a wrong decision, unless members involved were harmed (I typically see it as emotional harm, as it is with most things these days, than physical harm) or the unplanned baby (poor life). As sacred as sex is (is anything sacred these days?) it’s also an activity, and like most activities it is best to be prepared for it (hence the condoms or “pills”).

Yeah, I think they both did, though Abbey has been more realistic. Speaking of which, Abbey’s being a real sweetheart for not pushing her! Sometimes I forget what a gentleman he is(seeing as how Paulo’s presence sours him).

At least you have a plan, but do a little more research, you two! And Daisy, wait till you stop having doubts, because once it’s done, it’s done. The last thing you would want to regret is something beautiful and wonderful you want to share with your love.

EDIT: I’d also like to add that while it is their business if they do decide to have sex, it is also their business if they decide to WAIT.

From an objective standpoint, I’d like to point out that I don’t believe the vast majority of kids are emotionally mature enough for sex at fifteen years old. That’s where the legal age of consent comes in- that’s the legal understanding of mental and emotional maturity in regards to sex.

However, if they decide to, I wish them happiness. They’re a sweet couple! They are still kids, but I really do think that those two are mature enough to work through anything, with the effort.
