Happy Birthday, Ryke Meadows!

In the Addicted world, Ryke, our lone wolf, turns 27.  I look back and remember the first time he was introduced in Addicted to You and thinking, OMG he's going to be trouble.  Back then, I thought he was going to come between Lily and Lo...and he did in a way...but not in the way that I was expecting.  With the way Lily was describing him looking similar to Lo, I thought she would grow attracted to him.  It's seems so funny now that I think about it.

Ryke had so much to do with Lily and Lo's recovery.  He helped kick start it and he's made such a huge impact in Lo and Lil's life that it's hard to imagine how they would have ended up and where they would have been had Ryke not decided to come into their lives.  At the very beginning of Hothouse Flower, Ryke says, "I'm raw.  I'm hard.  I'm the thing you shy away from.  So I'm warning you now.  Back away.  Because once you enter my life, I won't ever let you leave."  So far, he's kept that promise and I never ever want him to leave.  I loved witnessing Ryke's relationship with Lo, Lily, Rose, Connor, and Daisy change into something wonderful.

Happy Birthday, Ryke!  Today, we celebrate you.  The Addicted world would not be the same without you in it.
