Seeking Comfort by janus Rated: PG starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 3]
Summary: Adam receives a letter from his past. It causes him to become depressed and he knows he must work it out before he can continue his current life style. Not even Ben can get him to open up to him. Adam needs to be alone so he goes away for a few days. Ben knows there is something wrong, but Adam can not talk to him about this part of his past. Not yet.

Though the characters are from Bonanza, this is not connected to the series. I have used my imagination to place thought and images which probably are different than any from the series.

Summary: I am trying to bring Adam to maturity through the times he spent in Boston, in college and with his grandfather At the time of one room school houses, young people were able to learn at their own pace. This led to most of the smart, and lucky ones, to get to college in mid to late teens, where I think Adam was about 15 when he went to Boston.. I do not recall many stories relating the two during this time. Since Adam appeared to love the sea, I feel it is his relationship with his grandfather that has kindled these thoughts.

Hopefully, this story will help show the affection they had for each other, as Adam was growing up. Closer to his grandfather than to his father.
