Working it Out

Working it Out is a wonderful story about relationships, fears, endings, beginnings, possibilities, and fate.

Jake and Lance are characters at a crossroads. Jake is thinking about selling the gym that has been a dream for him, and for the partner that died, and is very much out. Lance is at a different kind of crossroads - especially after meeting Jake - since he (Lance) is in the closet.

What I liked about the story is how the characters, well, work things out between them. While I would have liked to see Lance and Jake discuss Lance's past experiences that led to the way he feels about staying in the closet, the story worked overall and I enjoyed it.
