On "Fire Hazard" by Mike Young (1224 words) ***

Two people somewhere in a relationship, somewhere deep, where the relationship has worn to the point of irritation, where it has come to the point of love. How much are these two separate? How much are they the same? And how well do we really know that person we're with? These are the questions this story poses and doesn't answer, because the answers, of course, are impossible to present. But unlike most stories with a crash, an accident, I don't get the feeling this is necessarily tragedy. It's just how things are and how they're always going to be. Read the story here.
