More About the Story:

The source of one character’s restless despair is another woman’s interlude between the busy minutes of other days. Then again, carried out for too long and it becomes the very same restlessness. A forgotten treasure.

    This reminds me of a certain James Joyce story (I’m sure you know the one), but is still original and quite good for such a short story. Thanks, as ever.
