The Burt Reynolds Road Trip

"The Burt Reynolds Road Trip" by K. Lee Moreau

Lucien has it all. He's brilliant, handsome, talented, young, and devastatingly charming. Born with a natural charisma that radiated as bright as his smile, he's one of those types of people that had the whole world at his feet. He has everything going for him and his whole life to look forward to......that's how his story should have been told. But it isn't. Instead, at the age of 22, Lucien was diagnosed with a rare heart disease that would kill him as a young man. Rather than tiptoe around the rest of his years, he chose to live them even harder. Live hard, die fast, leave a good-looking corpse and all that.When he first asked me to join him on this road trip, I declined. No, I raged at the insanity of the idea. Drive across the country when only weeks before he had been lying on an operating table with his chest cut open? I insisted he should be home where I could take care of him, recovering from his surgery. But he persisted, like only he could. And in the end, I gave in and agreed to go with him...as if I could have resisted him. What resulted was a momentous, life-changing experience that I could never have anticipated.
