Summary: PHOTO DESCRIPTION: Two young men stare at each other through a chain-link fence. They are holding hands through it; one has nail polish and lip gloss.

STORY LETTER: Dear Author,

When I first crossed paths with him at the library on campus, I didn’t know what to think. Lip gloss, eyeliner, eye shadow, nail polish? Back in the small town where I grew up, a boy would have never dared to dress like him. When an assignment to create a video news segment from one of our professors places us both in the same group, personalities clash, and what started as fascination on my part turns into instant dislike, which he seems to immediately return.

He’s smart, quick-thinking, creative…but also snarky, moody, defensive, and basically the complete physical opposite of every guy I’ve ever been attracted to. And yet, despite the fact that I think he needs an attitude adjustment, and he thinks I’m just a backward country hick, I’ve quickly come to realize that sometimes the line between love and hate really is paper thin.

Thank you! :)

P.S. An HEA would definitely be preferred to an HFN ending.
