I admit, I’d be ticked if I was Kylie too. Though I imagine Gavin and Rudy probably WANT to tell him. But how?
Besides, Rudy’s falling more and more in the doghouse with Rain lately, and doesn’t need to top it off with outing her (again, if you count Chapter 1). And Gavin spent the first four chapters trying to get OUT of the doghouse; surely, he doesn’t need to screw it up again now.
If you were in their position, how would you respond? Is there a right way to approach this that would appease Kylie and NOT devastate Rain?
Rain, all characters and all other aspects of the story are copyright material belonging to me.
If I was in their position I'd probably respond with; "Rudy upset Rain a while back and the costume reminds her of that time. He still needs to apologise." - A half-truth really.
It's sorta a bit far in to say this but boy Rudy Looks really adorable dressed like that. Can we keep him that way pretty please?
@LittleLynn84: Maybe they could tell him "It's complicated. You should ask her yourself. But now's probably not a good time.".
The way I would respond is somewhat based on how this kind of thing is dealt with in El Goonish Shive:
"I want to tell you, but it's not my secret to share."
That being said, I wouldn't know the situation Ky is in right now. I'm surprised how calm he remains despite the idea that Rain may hate "crossdressers".
Quinis idea was actually pretty clever if you know Ky's situation, but I wouldn't really have a reason to lie if I were gavin or Maria...
