‘This is How You Fail to Ghost Him’ by Victoria McCurdy

I feel this story should be put into a time capsule for folk in the future to find and – hopefully – feel lucky that times have moved on. Victoria McCurdy captures the longing behind any new relationship so perfectly that it sings off the page and, having said it’s contemporary, actually the theme about relationships is probably universal. Perhaps this is what cave drawings were all about.
