Terry feels different. As a kid, he felt isolated and cut off from both family and friends. Later in life, he has an encounter with another man, which changes everything. His boss sees he's fallen in love, but what does that mean? The stranger in his life touched him in ways he doesn't understand. This is his story of awakening.
This is the first in a series of short stories I'm callling, Fall Through the Crack. The main character, Terry, is based on interviews I had with an old, dear friend who died twenty years ago. Terry and I got to know each other as roommates. We drifted apart, but I found my notes and I want to tell some fictionalized episodes to honor him.
