City Sacker #2


By Ray K

This is subtitled "a short story", and I'm not sure if I would even call it that. A reminiscence perhaps, as Ray recalls a person he had liked, and who had liked him in return.

But nothing ever happened, and Ray wonders about what could have been if he'd been more forward, if he hadn't cared what other people had thought, if he just hadn't thought so much. The note on the final page that says "But I hear you eat meat nowadays" captures the way that people change, and how you can know someone really well for a while, but they can become completely different people.
