1 - Finding Izzy
He extended his hand under Izzy's arm and offered it out to me. I didn't take it, my arms were still folded.
Axl meets a "friend" of Izzy’s who will change the way the two Indiana natives see each other forever...

2 - Forming Hollywood Rose
I stared at him in the darkness. And I could feel his eyes staring back. I think we both had this weird ability to sense each other’s moods, almost. It was just a thing we had. He wanted me to be the singer? And...did he really mean it when he said he needed me? The same guy who virtually turned me away from his apartment a half hour ago?

3 - A Second Meeting
Hopefully Izzy was home. I didn’t really want to talk to that Spike any more than I had to. Every time I thought of him, all that came to my mind were images of him plowing Izzy on some messy, unmade bed. I shivered. Fuck...He didn’t get to lay his hands all over Izzy like that--

4 - The Med Student
Spike was kneeling next to me, holding my wrist gently in his hand, glancing at his watch. What the--? Holy fuck! What the hell happened? What did he do to me? Oh God, oh God!

5 - I Was Worried
And sure enough, there he was, standing in the doorway, with a strange expression on his face. It looks like a cross between surprise, relief, and worry. It was a face I've never seen him make before. What the hell was that about? He didn't say anything right away.

6 - Meeting Chris
Meanwhile Izzy was staring across the table with this dumbstruck look on his face, like he can't believe what he just heard. Hasn't he been paying attention to this entire conversation? Idiot.

7 - Why Did I Come Here?
I shouldn’t have said what I said to him. I know that. I should have just shut up and drank my alcohol. But I was so angry and so hurt, and I wanted him to feel the pain I was feeling, the pain that ate away at me like an acid, that hurt with every pulse of my heart-

8 - Ain't it Fun?
“What the FUCK is your problem?!” Izzy screamed at me, sending razor sharp needles of pain through my head. “Look, I’m sorry that you feel shut out, but you didn’t have to go and pull a stunt like that! Especially not in front of Chris! Fuck that!” He kicked the coffee table. And Bowie took cover in the kitchen.

10 - Revelation
We sat down on the edge of the huge fountain that somehow hadn’t been vandalized yet. The water was running and it made slapping sounds as it hit the pool. Coins glimmered at the bottom. But something was still bugging me.

11 - More Sleepless Nights
Call it a hunch, but for some weird fucking reason, I just knew they were more than friends...they had to be. The thought made something in me smolder and I clenched my fists...fuck. Why does that thought bother me so damned much?
