The story I've included in this compilation is "Spring Fever," a tale near to my heart. It's a work inspired by my budding relationship with my Sweet, written when she and I were still at the crush stage. In fact, as you'll find, it's a cross-dressing story. It was written before I knew her as a trans woman.
It's hard to believe that only a year ago, I knew her as a man with an innocent predisposition toward women's clothes. There were hints. There were little things--subtleties--that most people would never notice, but that I noticed because, well, I was falling in love with her.
I mention a photograph in the story. It's a real photograph. That was a true event. In a way, that's how Sweet came out to me.
This story is such a precious document, for me, of my emotions around Sweet at that time. I don't keep a personal diary, so, in a way, my work becomes my journal. Even if the events in a given story aren't true to life (and even more so if they are), when I reread the erotica I've written over time, it gives me an excellent sense of where I was at emotionally and sexually at any given time.
In "Spring Fever," I see old heartache. I see fear and reluctance to enter into a new relationship because wouldn't I just get my heart broken again? I also see my recognition of the inevitability of falling deeply in love with a wonderfully quirky individual whose secrets would soon be revealed.
