"Revenge & Love" is one of the simpler stories in my anthology. It's straightforward, there are no strange terms or concepts, and the only monsters are bullies and the monster that they create. People of any age can be cruel, even in this time of "wokeness" we are currently experiencing. Every person has someone who loves them, and possibly even someone who would kill or die for them... When someone is harmed physically, emotionally, or mentally, the person(s) responsible for the harm often does not think about the impact on the people connected to the victim, but only the victim they desire to hurt. Harmful actions such as bullying can have a ripple effect and can rebound back, and in "Revenge & Love" we see one way that plays out.
"Playdate" is one of the shorter stories in the book about puppy love (pun intended). Friendships and love can come from anywhere and can be expressed in many forms. "Playdate" will hopefully remind readers of when they went through that awkward phase and had their first crush or the first friend they made after moving to a new town or school.
