Blurb: Patrick is happy until a stranger steps into his garden and into his life.
Patrick Trafford is pleased with the simple life he has, spending his time tending a tiny garden accompanied by his best friend, Chad, a cockroach. Nevertheless, he can’t hide the excitement bubbling in him as a man suddenly appears in the garden.
Damien Abner politely welcomes, albeit somewhat at a loss, Patrick’s warm offer to spend time with him. To have a coffee, watch some movie, and dance along with the characters in it.
They begin to date and Patrick has never been happier, though he barely knows who Damien is–not that it matters to him. For him, being clueless does mean bliss.
Review: Patrick likes his life simple, tending his gardens and talking to his best friend a cockroach he calls chad. Damien appears one day and Patrick can’t hide his happiness until one day Damien doesn't return. Looking for Damien unravels some secrets Patrick isn't sure he wants to know.
I loved this story It is sad and sweet at the same time. I can’t say a lot without giving it away since it is very short but it will definitely; leave you wanting more. I would have liked to know more about both characters and even more of Patrick’s past. I would love to read this as a full length story
Recommendations: If you like gardening, short stories about men with some secrets you will love this.
