This is my second story. It is mostly nonfiction with a little fiction mixed in. It is based on an real-life experience of a close friend that I thought would make for a good short story. He provided the skeleton and I filled in the dialogue with his approval. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed hearing it recounted to me.
After graduating, Jonathan felt like a swan, glided casually atop the water. Then someone pulled the plug and he found himself spiralling down the holes. That's until he meets Thomas, a kindred spirit which may be able to help him. But will Jonathan accept?
The story follows a young, pessimistic seventeen-year old boy named Erik who has little faith in himself. But one day, Gabriel- the boy he has been crushing on for four years gets run over by a bus in front of him which changes both of their lives forever. This story will explore the changes of the two boys as they gradually become closer together and figuring out who they really are.
