I’m Private Andrew Malone. I’m most likely overseas right now, but no matter. I hope you take good care of my baby. I was reluctant to let her go.

Private Andrew Malone loves his car. With bills piling up, he and his father need some extra cash to keep paying for his mother’s medical expenses. After much deliberation, Andrew makes the tough decision to sell his 1966 Corvette before his leave ends and he’s shipped back overseas.

“A Classic” is heavily inspired by the song Riding With Private Malone by David Ball. This is my first ever short story and the first original story I’ve published on Wattpad. I hope you enjoy it!

A short story of an unconventional New Year tradition built from love and loss.
