This one is really nice! It's got almost all the emotional keys, and left me feeling happy and sad as well as empty and fulfilled.
Short but long enough to do the job. Good pacing and an overall feel of the story moving along without leaving you behind.
Really recommended.

A beautifully-written story about a self-possessed and vain young man who makes a half-hearted appearance at a school reunion. He is forced to recognise some lost opportunities from earlier years. Is it too late for him to make amends?

The story made me think back to my teenage years. Had I been guilty of such treachery? I hope not.
