Jason loved Carrie but wouldn’t tell her. He was waiting for the day he was already financially secure.

“You’re an idiot,” his friend Alex said. “What if she’s no longer around when that happens? Better do it now.”

For the first time, Jason found the courage to follow his friend’s advice. Unfortunately, there was no happy ending. He was toast.

“I love you,” Carrie told him, “but as a brother.”

It was a rejection that caused him so much pain. If there was a silver lining, it was that he was able to take it as a man and survive.

Leni sat on the rocks watching the waves, thinking of Adrian, and looking forward to the day he’d treat her more than a friend.

They grew up in a small fishing village in the Philippines. Ever since they were little, she knew they were meant for each other.

Then Adrian left for Seattle to work in his uncle’s cannery.

Many years later, he returned. She didn’t expect he’d break her heart.

“Leni,” he said. “I want you to meet my American wife.”

Leni still sat on the rocks watching the waves, drowning in sorrow, and wishing he hadn’t come back.
