A romantic short story by LGBTQ+ fiction author Mario Dell'Olio!

Anthony's second year in Rome is nearly over, and he can't wait to get back to New York to see Kevin. He needs to know if there is still a chance for a future together.

Although Anthony continues to question whether the path he chose was the right one, he was not ready to let it go. All he knew was that he'd give anything to spend a night with Kevin again.

Kevin wants nothing more than to ask Anthony if he had made any decisions about their future. It broke both their hearts to be apart. Kevin needs to know if Anthony will return to New York to be with him. The many letters they'd written to one another continued to prove that their hearts remained with each other... will they be together?

Will Anthony confront his feelings? Will Kevin ask Anthony to move back to New York with him?
