The Storm In Our Chests
by Enrique Betancourt
Benj and Élan were best friends. For one year as children they became close, and forced each other to become their best selves. That's until Élan's father dies, and he is taken to foster care abruptly. For five years, all Élan can think is if he'll ever be loved again. For five years, all Benj can think if he'll ever feel whole again. And then it happens, they are reunited. Can they bond again?
