"It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it." - Oscar Wilde

Now, this was a great answer to this prompt!
Josh and Stu are both a little akward, both a little lost, and even though they don't see each other that often over the years, when they do, things heat up pretty damn fast. Mostly in a hostile way. No matter what the circumstances, or the occasion. They meet, they exchange and things escalate.
It was wonderful to watch their interactions over the years. And even though I'm not a big fan of the "misunderstanding-leads-to-enemies" - trope, this one was done so well and so smoothly, I fell right in and never got out until the very end. It was like an adult version of the neverending pulling of pigtails gone bad. Awesome! And soo delicious in the end. Maybe a little too smooth, considering the history these two share. But other than that? Wonderful!
Definitely one of my favorite LHNB stories! Read it and prepare to smile and shake your head at the same time.
