Such a sad and helpless feeling to be in love, and be loved by someone, when circumstances don’t allow for that love to flourish. Like Romeo and Juliette...the heartache and longing.

I hope this was a work of purely fiction. Seemed like a lot of life experience in that story.

I live in Michigan. My first thought as I was reading her dialogue was, “I definitely don’t speak like that”. Then I read some of her words out loud, once then twice just to verify that, yes I absolutely do pronounce words like that lol. Oops. Great writing! I was kinda pissed that he didn’t have a backbone. He already had 2 degrees, a high paying job, and lived 2 thousand miles from his father. Plus, she would have fit in beautifully in liberal California. What did he really have to lose? Not speaking to his father ever again? But, I guess that would be a different story and one that I would love to read! Thanks for posting!

Incredible writing. Such depth. I’d like to pre-order a copy of your first book. If you’ve already written one, what is the title and where can I get it?

Great writing, great storytelling! It was so good that I scoured Substack today to find it again because I had started reading it on Saturday but didn't have time to finish it and had forgotten to save it.

Brad, disregard my previous question about your book. Just found it in your bio. I’m not sure how I stumbled upon your substack, but I’m glad I did.

If he loved her, wouldn’t he have been worried when she stopped responding
