A Lockdown Love Affair
by Kirsten S. Blacketer
Ben Statler: I’m pissed. Thanks to the global pandemic and subsequent city-wide lockdown, my career, my whole life, is now on hold. As if to add insult to injury, there’s a tantalizing stranger on the next rooftop over and I can’t stop thinking about her.
Penelope Weiss: In the midst of sorting my grandparent’s estate, I’m shocked to find the city in lockdown. Convinced a little sunshine and TLC can fix almost everything, I embrace my time in isolation and tend to my rooftop garden. I never expected the grump next door to rain on my solitude and leave me soaking wet.
Social distancing sucks. But as the days stretch on, a startling realization unfolds. Some people are worth the risk.
