Safe in Harbor by sadtomato
Still mourning the loss of his long-term partner, Peter, two years after his death, Carlisle's friends and family band together to help him move on and live the life they know Peter would have wanted him to live. After begrudgingly arriving in paradise for his all-inclusive vacation, Carlisle's initially closed off and quiet, not wanting to do anything but relax and then go back home. When a handsome student, Edward, breezes into his life, Carlisle is torn. Should he accept the attention and affection from this adorable young man or keep to himself and not betray the memory of his deceased partner?
I loved this one shot! Carlisle's pain was so real and heartbreaking that I found myself wanting to reach through the screen and give him a hug. However, seeing him slowly come out of his shell and enjoy life (and Edward) was really sweet to witness. I would definitely recommend this story to those who enjoy sweet stories about second chances at love.
