Graaah! As if it's not bad enough failing to make the words come out right, I personally think being interrupted when you've finally gained the courage to do it is even worse. "Shut up and let me pour my heart out to this person!"
No, I'm not speaking from experience. What would make you think that?
It feels like it wasn't that long ago that Rain was saying she didn't need to ask Emily out and that everything is fine the way it is. But despite what's transpired between Rain and Kellen, she and Emily have grown much closer over this weekend. From staying up all night giggling and opening up to each other before the con, to a long day of wandering and bonding at the con (mostly without Aiken and Kellen). They both went out of their way to help each other. They both protected each other. Their relationship is only growing stronger and stronger. And - at least for Rain - it's changing "everything is fine" into fantasies where she confesses her feelings. And they've still only gotten closer since then.
But while getting a new girlfriend she's infatuated with would be a serious self-esteem booster, what could a "no" do to Rain's confidence right now. Not to mention, she still has to spit that confession out first (and without interruptions). And she probably can't do that at school.
Lots to think about, and I'm eager to hear thoughts (Rainily shipper or not).

TBH, while this is really exciting, I kinda wish you hadn't revealed who Rain was in love with when you did. I just think that'd have been better: Dropping subtle hints here and there and then showing us who it is the page before Rain confessed her feelings. However, that's not to say I don't like how you did go about it. This path still has me far more hyped up, though not as hyped to see what challenge Quenton is gonna impose on Rain and co. I'm still saying it's about damn time he lived up to his nickname. XD
Also, is it OK to ask how many more pages are left in this chapter?
Yep, know that feeling myself, albeit more for coming out as trans. Most times, I chickened out--the few times I didn't, always interrupted.
@Ranger: The "Transparent Closet" page (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TransparentCloset) at TVTropes says:
"Angela explains in 'Punch an' Pie' how she came out as bi to her friends: "They knew before I did. There's nothing like a loud chorus of 'Christ, FINALLY' to take the wind out of your sails."
Happened to me a LOT with coming out trans. The most notable example being bout eleven or so years ago, I had plans to come out to one of my better friends from high school. Then by some freakish miracle, she naturally and unprovoked, brought up the topic of trans people. This was my chance. Nothing could get in my way. Much like Rain, I literally started the sentence...
...then the waiter came back with our food. I could have kept talking, but that derailed everything and broke my momentum. All courage to come out, gone.
Happy ending to that story though: About a month ago, I actually reconnected with her for the first time in over a decade, meaning I basically had to come out at the same time. And she's totally cool with it; barely bat an eyelash. We're meeting up in a couple weeks. It's a little reminder for me to not let my fears or silly interruptions get to me. As Fara says, "it doesn't always have to end badly."
@LittleLynn84: I wish it didn't have to.
@TallMist: Unfortunately, as one of Damon Runyon's Broadway wise guys says "I long ago figure out that everything in life is six-to-five against."
@Fairportfan: Who is Damon Runyon?
@TallMist: He wrote a series of short stories that were the basis of the musical "Guys and Dolls"
So, Fara, I have to ask: how much XP did you get for killing the moment?
Also, hello Puddle ^_^
@Kimiko_0: No need to greet Puddle because Puddle never really leaves you.
