I love short fiction, I’ve said that over and over again. Some days I fear I’ve lost my ability to tell a story in just a few pages – flash fiction used to be my favourite format – that’s not something Nell Iris suffers from, though. Us Again is a sweet short story told in about 30 pages.
Alex had everything he wanted in Sammy until one day when Sammy ended their relationship. Alex has no idea why. They loved each other, and even if they didn’t say the words it was all there in their actions.
Several months later, Sammy’s brother calls Alex and asks him to come to the hospital. Sammy collapsed at work due to not eating or drinking properly.
Alex is filled with worry and fear that Sammy will ask him to leave and never come back again, but what follows is an explanation to why Sammy told Alex to leave and why he hasn’t been taking care of himself since. It’s an emotional revelation that’ll tug at your heartstrings.
If you’re up for a cuddly, sweet read, you should check this one out! You’ll get yourself a reunited, hurt-comfort fix through a conversation in a hospital bed.
When Alex gets a call in the middle of the night telling him his ex-boyfriend is in the hospital, he only hesitates for a second before rushing to Sammy’s side. But the Sammy in the hospital bed is fragile and not the same man who told Alex to leave seven months ago.
Alex wants to help Sammy get better and is desperate to find out what went wrong between them. Maybe he’ll even get a second chance with the man he hasn’t been able to get over.
But will Sammy let Alex back into his life?
