    Summary

    I’d like to think of this as a throwback to Patricia Highsmith’s noir genre. What if two ordinary people, Therese Belivet and Carol Aird, found themselves embroiled in events spinning rapidly out of control? Who is to be trusted? What is to be believed? Can one of them actually trust her lover’s memories of the events?

    Summary

    And she could feel it. That familiar tug of her heartstrings, that leaping in her chest, the flutter in her abdomen.

    When Carol turned and caught her staring, she looked away, but not quick enough to avoid the blush that overtook her cheeks.

    Summary

    Don't wanna be the bottle that keeps a ship from sea
    Don't wanna be a cage that keeps a bird from being free
    Don't wanna keep a singer from a melody
    Yeah, baby, that was you and me

    I wish I was heartless and kept you as mine
    I wish it were my hands that held you at night
    But all of the love that you wanted for us
    You found it in someone new
    So I'm not happy, but I'm happy for you

    Summary

    She asked once, how Abby met women.

    A smile curled across Abby’s face. “There are places… in the city. Beyond that, sometimes there’s just a way of looking at someone. The way they look back at you. A gaze that lingers a little too long.”

    Carol knew what Abby was alluding to. She’d experienced it countless times herself, with Abby, with other women. Sometimes unreciprocated, Carol left staring on her own, other times there was eye contact that lasted beyond simple acknowledgement. Carol had always chalked it up to pure admiration, though. And she’d never been compelled enough to act further, as much as she would’ve liked to. No, she wasn’t one to take chances, only pursuing sure bets.

    Until one day, she went to the store. Goddamn Frankenberg’s.
