In other news, the new “check this box to prove you’re human” commenting system has reduced spam comments from 60+ per day down to around 5. Woah. So thank you all for your patience in checking the box!
A hundred strangers cling to one another as their runaway train thunders toward a dead end.
Across town, the only woman you’ve ever loved is strapped to a time bomb.
Save her, keep your heart from breaking. But a thousand other hearts get broken instead.
