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

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.

MM romance/gay romance. Contains bullying, threats, mild violence, and sexual references.

I’m now revising this gay romance short story. It’s longer than the earlier versions that appeared at NetGalley and elsewhere. I’ll post it in multiple parts at Wattpad. Watch for more scenes there in the months ahead.
