Turn the Other Cheek
My story, "Turn the Other Cheek," was published in The Provo Canyon Review in 2014, but the magazine has since folded and closed down the website. However, all is not lost. I scanned the story from a hard copy of the issue my story was published in and have attached it to the STORIES page where a few of my published stories are linked. Enjoy!
