4.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Story of Loss, Grief and Acceptance April 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Rating: 4.25 stars

Paul Sinclair met Mark Conwell in the science lab in high school. It was Paul's first day in a new school. At lunch time,Paul seeks out his new acquaintance again only to have Mark calmly announce that he's gay and that Paul might not want to sit there. Paul just grins,throws a french fry into his mouth and asks if he plays any instruments. And so begins a remarkable friendship that continues into their senior year in high school, the two of them inseparable inside school and out, they even make plans to attend the same college. Then Mark starts having pains in his side their senior year. While he tells Paul about them, he doesn't go to the doctor until he collapses on the driveway during a pickup basketball game.

The prognosis? Advanced cancer. Shattered, Paul helps Mark deal with his terminal illness and finally admits to them both what he has known all along. He loves Mark and has for several years. It turns out that Mark feels the same way, but was afraid to say so. Neither boy was willing to risk losing their friendship before now. Mark's condition deteriorates until he falls into a coma. Grief stricken, Paul puts his life on hold to visit with Mark each day, unable to deal with his impending death. Ronnie is a volunteer at the hospital who reads to the terminally ill. When Ronnie goes to read to Mark, he sees himself in Paul's pain and immobility to move forward. Can both men find the strength to deal with their grief and loss? Or will the death of their loved ones freeze them forever in the past?

The Gift of Air is a wonderful story of firsts. The first love, the acceptance of one's sexuality and coming out, and the first loss of a major love. L. T.

This short story taught me two lessons. Friends become lovers and don't wait until the person's life is to decline.
