Say Cheese – Michael P. Thomas
Sitcom sensation Felix Medrano, America’s Sweetheart, throws a star-studded surprise party for his sweetheart, beanpole barkeep Grover Shepherd.
It’s a smash, save for one detail: Shep is a no-show.
Who’d have thought it would be so hard to pop the question?
Shep and Felix, an established couple are still being all adorable and lovely-dovey but it was borderline cheesy at times. I could definitely feel Shep’s frustration in the airports having gone through that every holiday in the past decade. The author, who is also a flight attendant certainly created a good picture of the madness that ensues during flight delays.

Komata-kun to Komata-chan –
Two short one shots about school boys in love~1. Haruda has started dating the quiet, shy Shiba. Nurturing their relationship like a small, budding plant, Haruda promises he will never make Shiba cry. And on a hot summer afternoon, Shiba quietly pulls Haruda to the next step.2. Hoshino is confessed to by Oda, an adorable boy in glasses. They start dating, but Hoshino wonders why Oda chose him… since he started dating Oda, Hoshino feels like his world has expanded, but since he’s not a star*, why would Oda like him?*Hoshino means “star” but he thinks of himself as gloomy.
The theme is that awkward just-started-dating phase and both authors captured it well.
