Part of the First Time For Everything Daily Dose 2011 collection
Dr. Andy Jameson considers the job of team physician for a regional college football team to be the perfect prelude to a specialized residency. But tending to injuries suffered during the brutal, full-contact sport is nothing compared to the injury he inflicts upon himself by falling in love with the ruggedly handsome head coach, Erik Sheridan. Andy’s content to love from afar until he literally sees the writing on the wall—a message hastily scrawled on the coach’s bathroom mirror—and realizes his last night on the job could be just the beginning of a life with the man he loves.

This is a delightful example of just how a short story should be!
In only 23 pages Monika Krasnorada shows us (emphasis on shows) that Dr. Andy has had a long time crush on the “straight” college football coach he works for as a team doctor.
Today is his last day serving the team and he’s sad and also longing for the ability to do something about his attraction.
Meanwhile the coach might have something to say about this attraction and how he goes about letting the Doc know… so sweet, so awesome!
Obviously we only get a small glimpse of this couple but it’s enough to show us that the coach is new to gay sex, the two men really match well together and the thought of long term and forever is definitely there.
