Despite the short length, and the story practically happened within one night (?) but this was one of those moments where it totally clicked with me, you know?
It felt very contemplative and personal. I was reading Parker and Henry's conversations like my life depended on it. When I read it, I felt like I was listening to an intimate midnight radio show, where I ended up thinking a lot about life choices, including the dark side of being human.
The ending was typical Lanyon, a spark of hopeful note despite not completely HEA. It felt like Lanyon at her best, especially when it comes to writing a story that lingers, long after the last sentence.
