by T. J. Robertson
 

A tired, disillusioned man in his forties revisits his hometown and runs into his high-school sweetheart, a frank, jaded widow also in her forties, whose wellspring of love has run dry but whose anger at him has subsided. Although they enjoy a pleasant ramble down memory lane, both realize that they can't go back and retrieve the good times they spent together.

Meet the Author

Although I’ve made my living as a teacher and guidance counselor, I’ve always had a passion for writing. Thomas Bouregy and Company published my novel, Return to Paradise Cove, under their Avalon imprint. Two of my one-act plays, A Different Kind of Death, and The Flirt, have been produced, respectively, in New Haven, Connecticut, and Sacramento, California. Short stories of mine have appeared in commercial magazines such as Action and True Romance as well as in certain literary and professional ones.

Really good story, but short.

Written in play form. A one act, quick read about first love. A bittersweet tale.

A REAL TEAR JERKER I knew how this short story would end, but still had a tear in my eye at the end.

Written as a plat. Dialogue a bit stilted. Full of regrets and what-might-have-beens.
