Debbie, a pretty girl with sad blue eyes, meets Ric, the lead singer in a band during a show on a college campus. They spend time together that evening, and she visits him for a weekend a few months later. Ric’s friend keeps reminding him “she’s a nice girl.” The question is: How much attention does he pay to his friend’s words.

 

Ric Wasley has written a poignant story both sad and sweet. His talent enables him to set scenes well, build characters even in such a short space and give meaning to the smallest action. He shows readers how events, that might not seem earth-shattering at the time, can have an immense impact and serve as a turning point. His tale also illustrates the lengths people will go to conform to an image, perceived to be “right” rather than just letting who they are shine through.

I continue to enjoy reading Wasley’s work.
