Alex is a fit young man with his life together, so why doesn’t he feel happy? Because he hasn’t found love, and lately it seems everyone else has. He has resisted the new trend of monster girl dating out of stubbornness, but lately he’s began to waver.

That place looked like a snowman blew his brains out!” he cackled once more, slapping his knee and drawing predatory looks from the students trickling out of the cafeteria. Not predatory in the usual way a boy might have feared, more in the sense of a den of lions staring at a very loud and slow gnat.
Some people find it hard to find a date. Not this guy though! To be continued? You decide! Email me what you think.
