This is a short story about a young man who only wanted to get a little bit of freedom for himself.

A beautiful night

It was a perfect moment. For the first time in his young life, he no longer had to hide his true colors. He spent a long time living in the deep shadow of a suffocating fear who kept him in silence for too many years. He thought he wouldn’t live enough years to see himself happy, like those dudes who walk around everywhere, brightly smiling to everyone who crosses paths with them. Honestly, he taught he would end up his days like a lot of tortured souls do; wearing a mask to hide his true emotions every day, out of fear of being bullied or rejected for the people. But this night, he was feeling alive. The blinding lights of the night club were painting the dance floor with beautiful tones. Everything around the young man looked like a perfect rainbow of joy. Yes, tomorrow he would get back to his everyday routine, seeing all of those faces who looked at him with a certain disdain, like he where from another planet. But tonight, there was no time to waste by crying, thinking about those fools and all the hurt of the past. For only one night, he was free as a bird. He couldn’t care less about if the other boys on the nightclub were checking him out or not. He had no time left for that silly stuff. He decided to go out that night to show the world that, unlike others, he wasn´t afraid to accepting himself as he was. If those guys were ok with denying their true selves just to please everyone, good for them. But that kind of fake life wasn’t made for a young man like him, with an insatiable thirst for freedom running through his veins. He wanted something more, and he was determined to get it at any price.

Without commenting on the quality of the piece itself, can I just point out that it would be a lot more inviting to read with a bit of "white space" in the form of paragraph breaks?

A solid wodge of text is much less easy to read than one that has a few separations in it.
