Length: 38 Pages
Tobias is a twenty-five-year-old virgin, bored with his life, and unsatisfied with how average and unremarkable he is—until he sees a silver unicorn. When the beautiful creature begins appearing to him regularly, Tobias doesn’t know if it’s a cruel joke or some form of mental illness. What interest could the unicorn have in someone like him? Searching for it in a park at night leads to an attack on Tobias, but he’s rescued by a handsome and mysterious man called Amar. Something about the man calls to Tobias, and suddenly his life feels a lot less ordinary and a lot less lonely. But fate can be harsh, and the biggest challenge to Tobias and Amar’s relationship has yet to reveal itself.
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2016 Daily Dose package “A Walk on the Wild Side.”
This story brings us the sweet, innocent story of Tobias, who like the blurb says is a very lonely virgin boy (despite the fact that he’s 25 you can call him a boy) who leads a lonely, bored life. When he finds a unicorn one day, he becomes fascinated by it and he feels something that is not fear but a strange form of connection. When Tobias is saved by a mysterious man named Amar, he notices that he also feels an attraction to this stranger. When Amar comes and goes Tobias feels it as a loss because he wants to be with this man and feels connected to him. So what is it that makes Amar only very sporadically turn up on Tobias’ doorstep?
Still they form a relationship as strange as it may be when you only see each other so rarely. When things take a turn they need to find out what they both want. Are they willing to take a chance, take a gamble to find a happily ever after?
You will have to read this story yourself to find out.
Overall this is a sweet story and reads very easily.
