Witty, offbeat, charming and sexy. I can totally relate.

Just look at Liam's eyes.
I must say that eating lamb casserole became a, er, hard task for Liam, but Mark took it in hand. Johnny did his usual -pointing out they were at Liam's parents place so no brutality should occur -
"Don't forget," Johnny murmured in his brother's ear, "this is a social call, not a business meeting. No need for any confrontation. Not with Liam's family."
Mark sighed. "Yes, I know. I was only going to talk. I'm not armed, you know. Not tonight."
The dialogue was sharp and witty and I loved Liam's father and mother -
"We've heard so much about you, but none of it from Liam."
Mark snorted. "We don't allow him a lot of time for talking."
"Sit down," Mark said, the shadow of a snarl in his voice. "I was talking with your mother." I sat, clutching the wine bottle like a comfort blanket. Both parents stared at me, but, as per usual, it was my mother who recovered first. "Goodness me," she said. "I think it must be the first time my son has obeyed a command since he was five years old and even then I'm sure it was a mistake. I must say, Mark, I'm impressed."
So, Liam was...inspired...to, um, paint - I shall never look at blue, red and green art in the same way again. Liam's mother was an absolute hoot and his dad was often in 'full creativity mode.'
There were declarations of affection from Mark, big step -
Mark snorted and shifted so he was gazing straight at me again. "Liam teases me just by being who he is," he said. "Always and in every way." His tone was deadly serious , and I couldn't look away.
And encouragement from Johnny -
"It's all right," Johnny whispered, so close his breath drifted over my forehead and somehow cleared my thoughts. "Mark will take you places, Liam, but I won't let you fall."
