“Beauty in the Breakdown”
story by Mabel Harper & Emrys Webb
written by Emrys Webb
Rory got in late from hanging out with Fabiana, found the suite dark except for the flickering light of the television in the common room: cartoons, like always. He spied the top of a head sticking up over the back sofa cushion, a scatter of empty candy wrappers on the table.
“Hey, Max,” he said softly as he approached. “You awake?”
He froze as he rounded the sofa. The person sitting there in a tank top and shorts, slack-faced, eyes half-lidded, with a half-drunk bottle of vodka nestled in the crook of their arm wasn’t Max.
It was Jules.
