I can't even remember when it was, back in the nineties I suppose, I worked at the mall, and there was a shop that sold Italian cream sodas.
To Die For.
So when I got this prompt, that was the thing that stood out in my mind...
Lemon Italian Cream sodas.
The Old Soda Shop
An M/M Romance by Lee Brazil
Former college roommates Matt and Sam have a history.
Will a chance encounter in the street lead to a second chance at love?
Years ago, art student Matt Gilray's world turned on its axis when his lover Sam rejected him at their favorite hangout. He'd spent the years since learning to be a businessman and an artist, letting go, forgetting a love affair that had brought him more pain than joy in the end.
A last minute realization that his college fuck buddy had turned into a lover wasn’t enough to stop business student Sam Balantyne from chasing his dreams. When the dreams runs out, Sam returns home and buys the derelict soda shop where they used to hang out. He wasn't looking for a second chance; he just wanted to enjoy a memory.
In the process of “freeing himself to pursue his dreams”,
had Sam tarnished them beyond recovery?
