Our Lives Together

A young teacher falls in love with a nurse during school's blood donation drive. He works hard to earn more money so he can marry... but when he arrives at her house with flowers and a ring, he finds her in the middle of a wedding party with another man.

These stories and personal essays were selected from a writing contest that Big Brother Mouse held at the local university. They represent the hopes, aspirations, and pain of young people in Laos today.
