Short Story – excerpt below
Proton collisions in the Large Hadron Collider spewed particles that flew in arcs, curls, and spirals through Remy’s virtual workspace. A physics grad, he analyzed trajectories from quarks, bosons, exotic particles with and without charm or charge, looking for a dark matter WIMP.
Remy’s closeted, uncharmed life had spiraled through high school, then college. His undergraduate boyfriend grew up gay. Paul was a Dean’s List Junior, in a fraternity, a guy that attracted friends, success, and Remy.
Paul begged outside the physics lab, “Please come to our party. I’ll make it worth your while.” He offered a kiss. In public! Remy pulled away.
