This story was written as a part of the M/M Romance Group’s “Love is an Open Road” event. Group members were asked to write a story prompt inspired by a photo of their choice. Authors of the group selected a photo and prompt that spoke to them and wrote a short story.
You know that feeling when you have just experienced something magical and it leaves you breathless for a moment and then you close your eyes and upon opening them again, it’s as if you can see clearer. That is how I would describe my experience after reading Fawn.
Let me tell you how I’m so in love with Rust’s character. He’s definitely one of the most beautiful characters I’ve ever encountered and someone I wished I created myself. His characterization is almost otherworldly. Rust’ sweet innocence will put a smile in your face and will make your heart ache when reality strikes him with its hate and grim.
Ancel on the other is no stranger to the real world. He is a representation of a lot of hurt souls. He’s that creature who’s looking for that glimmer of hope that will save him from the dark abyss he’s been thrown into.
“I don’t need a chance at heaven. I just need a chance with you.”
This may just be one of the best stories I’ve read in years. The poetic rendition of the author with the prompt left me yearning for more. It made me happy and it made my heart ached at the same time. There’s just something magical about the author’s storytelling. This stirring narrative will bring you joy, will make you weep and will make you remember it for the longest time.
And you don’t even have to buy it.
Nash Summers, thank you for this gift.

About The Author
Nash Summers rarely has any idea what she’s doing. But, when she likes to pretend, she pretends by writing stories at the pace of drying paint. And if that wasn’t exhilarating enough, Nash enjoys absolute silence, general politeness, and waiting her turn in line.
Needless to say—she’s a genuine hellraiser.
