Outted at thirteen, Orin left home after high school hoping to escape the hell his life had become. When a tornado destroys his childhood home and kills his parents, Orin finds himself in an entirely new nightmare. He returns home and confronts his past in the person of his one-time best friend, Thomas. Thomas not only rejected him when Orin came out, he led the group that tormented Orin into leaving. Struggling with his grief, Orin also labors to fulfill the pledge he made to his parents before their death. In the process, Orin learns that sometimes when you go away to find yourself, you leave the answers you're looking for behind.

A wonderful story of rejection, hurt, loss and a new start in life, with a interesting home coming end.

Thanks for writing a great story.
