Summer Love Unrequited Love
I wrote a short story for a contest about Summer Love. It's a semi-true story (I am worried about calling anything a memoir after the Frey Fracas.)
It's about my mother and the boy she loved all of her life. It is a whole lot easier to love from afar, when you don't have to deal with all of their bad habits, though, isn't it.
If she had married him instead of my father, maybe my father would be the one she pined after. Was it the boy? Or was it the unrequited love she was after?
