Grover “Shep” Shepherd is the only thing Felix Medrano loves more than being the current darling of Hollywood. He throws a star-studded surprise engagement party to declare their love to the world, and it’s a smash, save for one detail: Shep is a no-show. Felix knows Shep missed his flight home from New Orleans, but that was hours ago. What’s the hold up?
Shep’s still at the airport is what, watching flight after flight wing westward without him. Each time he sends Felix a progress report via text message, Felix replies with a romantic photo from their past, and Shep spends much of his airport odyssey Remembering When. It’s easy to see how these two fell in love, but can Shep possibly make it home in time to celebrate with Felix and their friends?
This was a cute story. Shep is trying to get home but after missing his flight he hasn’t been able to get himself onto another one. Felix has a surprise but it doesn’t account for much if Shep isn’t there.
I loved seeing Shep’s memories of when he and Felix began their relationship and a small stumbling block but they are stronger now than ever. You can see that even though Shep doesn’t know what Felix is up to he is disappointed to not be getting home. Felix’s surprise in the end tied up the story nicely. This was so short that there wasn’t much of a chance to really get to know the characters but I enjoyed it anyways.
The cover art by Written Ink Designs is an adorable picture of Shep and Felix together.
