Short Story: A Fresh Start

Genre: slice of life


His final year of high school was a disaster of such epic proportions that it broke all but the most sturdy friendships in his class. Because of that, instead of moving up to the university his school was affiliated with, he chose a new place for a fresh start.

He hadn’t expected half the class to share the same idea.

They sat now, a dozen moody people scattered among the hundreds of other students attending the orientation. He hoped the university was big enough that they never crossed paths again.

He should have known better.

Out of the twenty-odd people in his tutorials, almost half were his old classmates. Even his electives, in a completely unrelated field, had a handful.

This was it then. A not-so fresh start with a bunch of baggage from the past.

He would just have to deal.
