This is a nice short story, so nice that probably it would have been better a little more long.

Mike is coming back home after 6 years of absence: his father is dead but he was the same father that kicked him out when he was 20 years old and gay. Mike has found his path in life without his father’s money and he is not to change it.

I like that, when Mike discovers that to inherit his father’s money, 26,5 million, he has to marry, he never for a moment thinks to do a fake marriage. As 6 years before, Mike is too proud of being gay, and too comfortable with it, to even consider the idea. And then, coming back home, Mike has also found again Jess, his old best friend, the same boy he had a crush on but never did something since Jess is 2 years younger than Mike and at 18 years old he was too young for something serious.

But now Jess is grown up, and how much!, and so nothing is preventing Mike to find happiness with him, neither the possibility to be a millionaire. And truth be told, it’s not that the alternative is so much bad, his father’s winery, that he has inherited nevertheless, is some millions worth.

Mike and Jess’s relationship is quite easy and simple, maybe even too simple: when everything seems perfect, Jess’s past comes alive, and it threats to tear them apart. That is probably the point when I realized that having some pages more wouldn’t do bad: there was a moment when everything happened in a blur, so many events and so little explanation for it. But if you consider that, indeed, it’s a short story, it’s almost surprising to realize that so much happened other than the sex that usually is the only thing you manage to enjoy in short stories.
