Stories about lovers from childhood or high school usually are my favorites. I even created an official list for it. But not this one.

That includes dumping him from being a Best Man the day of the wedding. (view spoiler) ...more

Young love betrayed but not abandoned. Billy and Wade are two very attractive young men from opposite sides of the track who fall in love. Wade seems to have everything, but he doesn't have the strength of character to choose Billy in the face of pressure to follow a more traditional path. He abandons Billy and marries a rich girl, hoping for security and money.

Ten years pass and Billy remains true to his friend, in spite of his pal's seeming indifference. I sort of wished he would move on, but

I love stories about second chances and this one was a good example.

I felt sorry for Wade, who's been wasting his life away and learned the hard way, that money doesn't give you happiness. Billy's so dependable, loyal and just a very good guy, I rooted for him from the start.

The ending was absolutely sweet and put a big smile on my face :)

This short chapter was nothing special. The plot was easy and bland. And
I wouldn't mind if the word "condom or lube" would be mentioned.
