"Fixing a Broken Heart"
A complete story with 12 chapters
Fixing a Broken Heart by RJ Santos
     Fate sometimes deals with us the hard way. That was what Zacarias Ocampo found out when his best friend, on whom he was madly in love with, came out to him. It would have been good for Zack except that his best friend brought a boyfriend with him. Zack finds his life going down the drain from that day on. He has people he could fall back on, but would he trust them enough? Zack came, he saw, but would he conquer?      "We're gay," he said, and then paused looking uncertainly at me. He turned to look at Max and seemed to gather the courage he needs. He continued, "We love each other ... we're boyfriends."
     I stood up abruptly from the bed, shocked. How could he do this to me? Right here, in my own bedroom? How could my best friend tell me he's gay and that he loves someone else when I've been doting over him ever since forever? This wasn't some joke, right? "You ... you're boyfriends?" I managed to ask, blinking back the tears that threatened to spill out of my eyes. I sounded scared and ... pathetic. Arvin was staring at me, his eyes wide. He seemed horrified, and I was almost puzzled why. He nodded vigorously, and I knew I just had to get out of here. It won't be long before ... God! I ran out of my room and out of the house. It was all I could think about. Out. Somewhere. A sob I had gallantly fought back before escaped my lips the moment I stepped out of the house.

"Option to Live"
A Short Story

     Kaizer was a call boy. He had been one ever since he realized that there was nothing else he could do to earn money and live. He didn't want to beg, and he didn't want to dig in garbages for food. He was kicked out of the only home he knew by the only mother and father he knew when he told them he was gay. One night, he waited for someone to pick him up. It was a "slow" night, and it irritated him because his birthday was coming up and he still didn't have any cash. A black Camry stopped in front of him, and the man promised to pay the price he wanted and much more. The man promised him a new option to live. Would he let his doubts get in the way?

"The Ride Home"
A Short Story

     Carl fears his feelings for Matt, and may lose Matt’s friendship.

"Where the Heart Is"
A Short Story

     The house hadn’t changed much. It still looked the same as three years ago, at least, from the outside, although now it was adorned with Christmas lights and stuff. I was tempted to just stop my car in the middle of the street and run into the house, but I restrained myself and kept driving. Since there were other cars parked along the street, I had to park a block away from the house where I had spent eighteen years of my life. I felt my heart start to pound inside my chest. It had been a long time since I last saw it. Three years is a long time.
