The Better Man

After being left on her wedding day with only a letter for consolation, Lorelei decides that even though she is heartbroken and horrified to have to face the wedding guests alone, the party must go on without the groom. Lorelei decides to go ahead with the reception party and proceeds to celebrate by drinking to her oblivion.

Will is the grooms best man and friend of both the groom and Lorelei. Unbeknownst to Lori, Will has secretly loved her from afar, but now is his opportunity to take care of Lori in her most hellish time of need. Will he be able to show Lori the extent of his feelings for her and can he bring himself to give her the time and space she may need to recover from the devastating betrayal of her groom?

I loved this short story and recommend to all lovers of a good twist in their stories. Ceri Hebert takes the reader and her characters from the lowest of lowest emotions to the most satisfying and fulfilling in a concise but clearly descriptive manner. In the end we end up not really feeling sorry for the “bad” guy since he brought his fate upon himself. Betrayal and humiliation are bold character s in this story, but Ceri Hebert brings them in and turns them on with excellent results that will leave you cheering in the end for the “Best Man”.
