Another Life, Jillian D. Bailey

The Crambo

"Another Life” is a short story about going home again. The main character, Julie, returns home and reflects on the life she left behind after high school. She reflects on the love that she lost when she lost Chris, her high school boyfriend. On this trip home, Julie experiences the sickening discomfort of returning to a place and person she no longer is and is surrounded by the memories that never really leave. Chris and his memory never left Julie, and in the sickening claustrophobia of hometown life, she discovers the man he became and what could have been.
