A few words from the authors.
Before any of you read this, we want to make sure you realize that, to the best of our knowledge, this is all total fiction. No one in Hanson has done, is doing, or will be doing (we hope), any of the things you will find in this story. We also would like to take a moment to explain the nature of what you’re about to read. When the topic of this story was suggested to me, I really didn’t want to do it, with Hanson as the main characters. It seemed too dark a road to take them down. However, the more I thought about it, the more comfortable I became with the idea. They are popular, apealing, and easy to relate to. Collectively, we also felt that the story would have more impact if we used them. We are in no way suggesting that this is the way we think they will be going.

Next a very important note. The subject matter in this story is extremely adult in many places, and very harsh. If an R rated movie would make you uncomfortable, you may not want to read this.

This story was collectively written by two people, with a lot of input from many many others. We hope that even if you don’t like it, it will at least make you think. And if the guys in Hanson should ever happen to stumble upon it, we hope it makes them think too…

This story is rated R due the mature
content/subject of this story.

Roads is the sequel to the story Walls, I suggest
you go read it first, if you haven’t done it already.

Exceprt from Chapter 22
“You people are in crisis. You have a kid with a huge problem. A really, really huge, mind-boggling, life destroying problem. Yet you bury your heads in the sand and pretend that, because you pulled him home, and watched him finish withdrawal, because he’s not any longer in the situation, it’s all okay. You’re all sitting around wondering why, if it’s all over, is he still acting so damn strange? You’re all so angry at him, for not just jumping back into things as if nothing had ever happened. You’ve been told to let him alone, and things will all work out. I’m very sorry, but that’s like trying to say that two Aspirins for the aches, and a nice coat of makeup to improve your color, will cure the pneumonia that’s killing you! You’ve eradicated a symptom, that’s all you’ve done. Things look okay on the surface, but inside, everything’s coming apart. And it’s not just Taylor. You all are so blown away that you can’t even scrape up the motivation to call the cops, to get rid of the idiots standing around in your yard! You’re looking at every single obstacle in your path as something else to ignore, and hope it goes away. How far down that road do you think you can go?”

  1. I’m not sure how I ended up here the other day, but during that visit I ended up reading all of “Walls” and the first 16 chapters of “Roads”, and since then I’ve also read chapters 17-20 as they’ve been posted. So just wanted to let you know that I’m reading and enjoying this story very much! More chapters soon, please!

      Thank you for commenting and reading the story.
      Personally I stumbled upon Walls & Roads by Sheryl in the fall of 1998, at that time I had just lost my dear grandmother. I somehow found comfort in the stories.
      The main reason I host these stories are because they’re so very well written and brings up such an important subject.
