The Answer

   (4 reviews)

In his youth, Shawn passes through life as if it's an amusement park ride. Men come and go, all while his slightly judgmental friend, Ian, looks on.

This is the story of Shawn dealing with the repercussions of his choices, and then him growing into his own life.

This story is written in a "Deep Point of View" format. It was different for me, but I enjoyed the challenge.

I usually don't read shorter pieces, but I enjoyed your other work and decided to give this one a chance. I am so glad I did. This story tugged at my heart, leaving me wanting the main characters to figure out their truths. I very well done story, and one I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting something short and almost bittersweet in its telling.

Response from the author:

Thanks for taking a chance to read a short, and for taking the time to review it. I've had this one in mind for a while, and I'm glad I finally got around to putting it together.

I am happy you enjoyed it. That's the goal - always.

This is a fantastic story from Wayne and unusual that is a short story.

It is a story that will pull at your heart strings as we follow Shawn through 20 years of his life, treating it a bit like an amusement ride. Men come and go over the years, he never finds one to make him happy. His best friend Ian, whilst slight judgemental just watches on.

A fantastic story from Wayne that I highly recommend.

Response from the author:

Thanks for the review, and for reading, chris.

I'm happy you enjoyed this little jaunt in the life of Shawn. Short and sweet!

Let's just say...it's definitely "Wayne's World"!! Amazing short story that hit all the right spots and showcased his excellent talents...and also the bonus of sharing a beautiful poem!!! Both were brilliantly done, thanks to you both!💯:heart:

Response from the author:

Hehe. Thanks for the review!

I'm happy you liked both the story and the poem too. It was awfully fun to put this thing together, and a challenge too, so I'm gratified that you enjoyed it.

Thanks again!
