A story of friendship, growing up and unrequited love…
“I also got the chance to see him up close. God! He was handsome! He looked like a street kid in school uniform but a bloody hot one.The dirt & grime did little to hide the strong chin,high cheek bones,long slender nose,the full,red lips & the blue eyes thatched with that dancing blond hair.All of that on an athletic frame that was perhaps six foot two or six foot three.Long,strong arms covered with a thin film of golden hair that glistened in the sunlight as he raised them to brush his hair off or to put the fag to his mouth.Hot!I swear if Hitler was alive or if Robbie was in Nazi Germany they would have thrown him under a shower,dressed him in some smart uniform & photographed him for their latest calender.
Only the eye seemed sad though.not downright dripping sad but kinda lost sad.Deep blue eyes searching for something they can’t find.But I gotta say it made the face look hotte
Shehan has a crush on Robbie, his friend and classmate. Robbie is straight and finds Shehan’s affections unsettling. But then, that is all Robbie has going for him in his turbulent life. And when they both realize it, it’s already too late.For a fag like me at least.”
