Dear Stranger by Sid Love is a short sweet story about two strangers who happen to just meet, or isn’t it as much of a coincident as at least Reggie thinks?
It is hard to write a good short story, I most often, I’d even say I more often than not come out after reading a short story (even those that are 10-20K longer than this one) feeling like I’ve missed out on a big great part of a story. I usually leaves me feeling cheated, meaning I don’t really like short stories because I love the detailed info, the build up, to get down to the nitty gritty of things.
But I have to say I am happily surprised by Sid’s story Dear Stranger, not only doesn’t it leave me hanging in the end, even though I’d fancy to know more because I really do like both Reggie and his dear stranger. The plot is focused and driven, the characters engaging and the dialog sweet, even teasing at times and flowing along well for as short as it is.
I am impressed by how much info and story Sid manages to get into the story, how he manages to make us see both Reggie and his stranger as people we know some without really telling us a lot about them, but what little info we get is important and helps you understand who they are and where they come from. Also the fact that it doesn’t feel rushed, which a lot of short stories feel because you try to get to much action into the story and instead of making it lovely it just makes it unbelievable. But not here with Dear Stranger.
Sid Love write with a lot of heart, he’s a believer in true love, a romantic and it shows in his writing. Well done Sid Love! Be Proud!
When our blind MC encounters a man / stranger he feels attracted to puts his radar on high alert when he learns the man and as it turns out, a very large man has been watching (stalking) him for several days before approaching him. Flattered and fearful at the same time the blind man can't help being cautious but intrigued by this cologned stranger who lets his interest be known.
How does the blind man negotiate from a a standing of strength when he realizes that he has lost control of the situation once the sighted person follows him nearly to his home? Why does he feel so lonely that he throws caution to the wind? So many bad things could happen to him. Especially since he doesn't even know where he's been taken to.
No names were exchanged. Just passion. Yet the sighted guy is gentleman enough to assure his blind lover makes it safely home. This dear stranger makes a big impression on the blind man. He wants more, feels disappointed, and upset at the same time. Isn't there some one night stand etiquette? Just get off and forget. Avoid the person. Definitely no sharing of names or personal information. Then why does the blind subway rider feel so bereft?
I enjoyed this short short. It had a good amount of tension, second guessing, and a nice beginning instead of a heart breaking end. I look forward to reading more by this new author, Mr Love. I even hopes he revisits these two MCs sometime in the future.
“You're too beautiful to go unnoticed by anyone.”
The stranger follows him towards his home and invites him to his apartment. Que the steamy love scene!
“Let me be your eyes tonight. Let me show you how beautiful you really are.”
The stranger walks Reggie home and says he will see him the next day. But Reggie avoids him for the next week. Is this the end of what could be the beginning of a promising relationship? Does the reader get to know the stranger's name? I really enjoyed this short tale of two strangers coming together in the big city! I think you will too!
