They've both been through a lot in the years since they parted ways, and as they talk, the old connection tenuously strengthens. Trent finally works up the nerve to call Brit, and their rekindled friendship slowly grows into the possibility for more. But both men are shadowed by their pasts as they explore the path they didn't take the first time. If they can move beyond loss and painful memories, they might find their road leads to a second chance at happiness.

Trenton and Brit grow up best friends. By the time their high-school graduation arrives, Trenton realizes he loves Brit and believes Brit loves him. But when Trenton dares to give Brit a kiss, Brit terminates their relationship. Trenton eventually falls in love with John. They live together for twelve years—until John dies of a condition he inherited. Trenton becomes a recluse. He does have one friend, though, who speaks freely with him about his intimate life—his mother. Trenton spots Brit on a commuter train. Brit is surprisingly friendly to Trenton. Brit’s romantic life has led to two major failures, the first with a woman, the second with a man. I greatly enjoyed reading the story of Trenton and Brit. I suspect a large number of gay people have fallen in love with their best friends in their youth, only to gain rejection for guessing too well the other wanted the same thing but wasn’t ready to admit it. Thank you, Andrew Grey, for Path Not Taken.
