A  well written 'coming out story', although this time with an older character.  Zane is an accountant who's questioning whether he's attracted to men, so he decides to go a location where he might be able to find the answer to this question.  It's there that he meets another man, who in some respects is his complete opposite, yet in other ways they have much in common.  They strike up a conversation and each one ends up telling the other his story, but is it enough to strike a romantic spark between them that will lead to something more?  I suggest you read this story to find out.

Thank you, Bill, for your kind words.

Another gem from Aditus.  Zane has arrived at a crunch time - continue with his black and white life or enter the rainbow-flagged bay and start to live.  
The final text messages are a delight.

great writing, as usual, from a star writer.

This story expresses very well the reluctance of an adult who classifies himself as a 'numbers person' to break his shyness habit and enter into the gay world. Excellent Characterization, Pacing, and Description. Would rate five stars if it were an introduction to a continuing series. But, because it is a 'one-off', leaves the reader hanging a little.

Thank you for this wonderful review.

I could have written a longer story alas, the story  is part of the spring anthology which means one-off. :)
