We made it at long last! The 300 days of April (or so it seemed to this author) are finally done. Did it seem that way to anyone else?
With a fresh month on our pages and screens; I’m looking forward to new beginnings, closing old deadlines, and the daily opportunities of life. How’s that for vagueness? haha…To be specific…I start classes again tomorrow (yay); I have two books that I need to finish (one with writing and the other with edits); plus life here in the Midwest is always a crap shoot of weather and life. You never know what the next storm system will roll into town.

This week I’m sticking with one of my more dramatic works…Complications. First written in longhand in 1999.
Josh is a family man, a good doctor and a man in love… with his best friend. All is well until Greg discovers how he feels. Sadly, he doesn’t feel the same way.
Heartbroken, Josh finds love elsewhere, with Glenn, a much younger man. They have a whirlwind romance, until one flawed decision threatens to tear them apart forever.
With all the complications in his love life, will this doctor find a cure to mend his broken heart?
Josh is in love with his bff Greg, but Greg doesn’t feel the same way. The problem? They’re both married…to women…with kids. Now the wives know too.
“I’m sorry, but I’m not in love with you, though I almost wish I could be. But as honest as I can be with you, I’m just not! I’ll be your friend and confidant, but not that!”
“I know, I know! I just–… “Josh bowed his head and looked away from his friend. He stood quickly and walked away a short distance but within two minutes he was back. Greg reached out his hand. “Josh—“
“No,” He mumbled. “Just don’t, okay?”
They sat in silence as Greg fixed a lunch of hot dogs and salad. Josh stood up and walked over to a wooded area roughly fifty feet away where he sat and sobbed audibly. Greg heard him and poked a twig at the dirt angrily; wishing he could comfort his friend more, but knowing that it would make it worse. Finally, after a few minutes, Josh joined him again.

Well that didn’t go well. The heart wants what it wants and when they answer is no; it goes into a tailspin.
