Abstract: This thesis is a collection of six short stories centered around the friendship of two characters, Ray and Thomas. The narrator, Thomas, is the chronicler of the stories, which tell of their friendship from a young age to when they are adults. The first two stories demonstrate Ray leading Thomas into trouble and Ray’s personal struggle with his father. The relationship between Ray and his father is further explored in the third story from Ray’s perspective. Then the fourth story is about Ray and Thomas as adults and how their friendship has finally come to an end just before Thomas leaves to study in the US. The fifth story tells of his return after two years and coming to terms with Ray death which occurs while he is away. The final story explores what Ray does while Thomas is away studying. All stories are unified by the Caribbean/Central American experience and setting in Belize.
