Stories can serve more than one purpose. Can soothe or inflame; can sink you down into the deeps, or snap sails taut and jerk you up into the stratosphere. This one... this one hurts. If I were wise, I wouldn't review it until I'd had time to calm down.But I don't want to feel this way any longer than I have to. I'm in a fury.Read this. It's beautiful.Then go stroke a kitten. You'll need it.
