Lunchtime read: Strait is the Gate

The relationship between the central characters Jerome and Alissa becomes like one of those moments when someone is clearly trying to break things off and the other fails to see it.

Or maybe Jerome does realise that Alissa does not want to see him and so after a year apart he does complain and call on her for explanations. The reader can clearly see that she has decided to try and wean herself off him and hope that he falls for someone else but his constant letters should indicate that is not going to happen.

As a result a date is finally set when they will meet but she tries to keep it to just a couple of days - a request that surely will make it clear to Jerome that she is trying to end the relationship?

More tomorrow…
