A really adorable, emotional short story, well fleshed out characters, good plot, nice secondary cast. Just a shame it's not longer.

    Kurzmeinung: A really adorable, emotional short story, well fleshed out characters, good plot, nice secondary cast. Just a shame it's not longer.
    Adorable, emotional, well done.

    After his father dies unexpectedly, Callum finds a pocket watch that belonged to his grandfather. He takes it into an antiques shop to find out more about the piece, since he know it was very important to his grandfather. There the owner's son Alex helps him figure out the meaning of the watch, going so far as to visit Callums grandmother with him, so he doesn't have to do it alone.

    This is a really adorable, emotional short. It made me wish the author had done a full novel instead.

    The thing is, we're just getting the beginning of the relationship as Alex and Callum get to know each other and bond over Cal's grandfather's pocket watch. It is sweet, slow and romantic but the author manages to flesh out the characters really well in such a short amount of pages and the budding emotions feel real and heartfelt. But it's really just a tiny piece of the start.
    Then we get a kind of epilogue on how the story and relationship progressed, I just wish the part leading up to that could have been fleshed out a lot more. I'd loved to read more about them building up their relationship, about Alex's family, which also seemed very cool.

    Also, there's the story of Cal's grandfather and his boyfriend at the end, which is a horribly mean tearjerker, and I don't even mean that as a complaint. But it just unexpectedly punches you in the feeling place and leaves you crying all the way through.
