Now That We’re Grown: A Gay Romance Short Story

Gavin Hernandez and Peter Montoya meet before high school. Gavin admires how Peter never complains about being gay or using a wheelchair. During their senior year, Gavin takes profile pictures of Peter in that chair, but the gesture of good will leads to online bullying and a painful final stretch of school. Best friends slowly drift apart.

After college, they reunite in Dallas as more than friends. Gavin now designs facilities for people with physical challenges. Peter looks for a job to match his business administration degree. The past might destroy their relationship, or their love might change their lives.

Contains bullying, threats, mild violence, and sexual references.

This gay romance short story will be available as an eBook in late 2019. I’m still revising it from the version that appeared online in 2018. Read a new draft of Part 1 at Wattpad.
