I did one of these a long, long time ago. Now that I’ve been trying to post more, in general, on a number of my blogs, I thought I’d try again.
Today, I’d like to start with a short story, posted by Dean Murray on his online fiction site: “Absense,” a story of romance between friends. It starts a little slow, but it ends with a heart-wrenching vividness. The story is about a girl who finds herself falling in love with a boy friend, pained as she feels the friendship slipping away because of changing circumstances.
Of course, maybe this story means something to me because I myself once had my heart broken when I fell in love with a friend. (But read Dean’s story first.)
What do you think of these stories?
