Adam Pelzman, Troika

“Just a minute of perfect darkness before he pulls me out of a place I really had no business going.”

“I open my hand and put my thumb and index finger around his wrist and lift it up to the strobe light. And there it is, blinking in the light, on-off, on-off, on-off, a platinum wedding band, clear and bright like a priest’s collar.”
