Storyline

Axl and his mates awake from lazy 'teen hibernation' when the annual Heck family barbecue is supposed to inaugurate 'bikini season', he's even prepared to clean the pool himself. Alas, it's still so chilly they can barely stand swimwear themselves, let alone attract girls to the pool. After attending Brick's class's social skills performance, equally awkward Mike promised to try giving their youngest the good example. Alas for Brick, who rescues Mike politely, a bully is far from impressed. Sue joined the parish's youth sessions after meeting hot associate reverend TimTom, only to hear he's leaving shortly. Her zealous fund raising to enable paying for him to stay proves fruitless, yet he attends the barbecue baring surprising goodbye gifts. Written by KGF Vissers
