The Case Study of Kaiden Blake
Chapter 3: Moments like this.
I love moments like this.
If, by sleight of hand, I had the opportunity to decide whether or not to enter this life, moments like this would tilt the scales. I can practically feel the world surrendering itself sideways.
I’m always surprised moments like this are so frozen, for emitting such warmth. I suppose they’re frozen because they demand you conjure a fire out of thin air, to think about thoughts and forget about the life that resides on the other side of the heat.
I wonder, are moments like this a survival tactic? Must we create fires at times when a lighter is absent? Our thoughts may be rocky at times, but I believe we can create our own fires.
I suppose we could all use moments like this.
I suppose everyone should know how it feels to be so warm.
