“She isn’t sure if she’s going to go back to school and get her PhD, because she already found her dream job.” The man and woman laugh knowingly. To abide in this crystal death. That level of confidence is terrifying. It’s a fever shaking. When the man in the cafe laughs it is a guitar cut with distortion. A bat swooping low and threatening. Both the man and woman laugh, but the only person that makes the man laugh is the man.
