Against The Lockers by Aiden E. Messer
"There’s something genuinely uplifting when you encounter a fellow queer voice shouting out for justice, humanity, and empathy. And that’s clearly the cause behind this story."
Colin Fern's life is perfect. He has a wonderful group of friends, he's studying at an art school to pursue his dream job, and he's about to ask the man he loves out on a date
But everything collapses the day he gets assaulted. He must now find a way to try and piece his life back together. And maybe take revenge on his abuser.
Against the Lockers" is a great short story which I highly recommend but It's not for everyone, I'm not squeamish about this kind of topic but I'm currently feeling a bit low due to my recovery from Covid. There are parts of the story that left me feeling slightly ill, which I believe, added to the story as it's gory and very graphic. As other reviews states, I would have liked to know if they got away with it in the end. I'm definitely checking out his other works.
