Nathan had deep feelings for Kelsey, but she didnโ€™t have any idea. His love was like a flower not allowed to blossom.

“Why don’t you tell her? Erick asked.

“I’m not ready.”

“And when would that be? After you’ve earned your degree and gotten a well-paying job?”

“You can say that.”

“That’s baloney. By then, she’s gone and out of sight.”

One afternoon, Nathan found Kelsey in the library alone by herself. She waved him over.

“Erick said you have something to tell me. Is that true?”

“I do.”

Finally, it was springtime and all was right in the world.

    Ah, sweet story. And wasn’t it absolutely right for his friend to ‘interfere’? Lovely read.

    I scent conspiracy between Kelsey and Erick! Or at least, Erick became aware that each liked the other and determined to bring about a happy union.
