I figured it was a bit mean to leave you with the tragic, doomed love of last week so here are some of my personal favourite romantic short stories I've written.
*Shelley has been asked to present his poetry at a fancy event, it's a shame he can't get his crush out of his mind.*
*Normally Tui would spend the christmas period in her jandals on the beach, or having a cookout in the yard with her family. This year she's shivering in her winter coat, wondering how anyone can be merry in this cold dreary hemishpere!*
*Amyas doesn't typically spend time in seedy bars with peanut shells littering the tabletops, but he needs a place to hide out.
