I've been really incoherent and uninspired lately, so I decided to try and remedy that with a short story. And, here it is! (By the way, my title is a quote from Heather Dale and has nothing to do with the story.) Keep in mind, please, if you read this, that this is a FIRST draft. So any suggestions about how to make it better would be greatly appreciated. Especially the ending. I know it fails. Comment and tell me what to work on!
