In a Lonely Place on 05-05-2019

It’s so clear to Riggs now. Even before Britt murdered him (there was a time when he blamed the horse, but he’s past that now; she guided the horse; those two were practically a single organism, such that the hooves crumpling his skull might as well have been Britt’s heels), he was already a ghost. When two people come together, they create something else. Like any chemical reaction, the change in the world cannot be reversed. So choose your lovers carefully, choose your handshakes and your families. Unfortunately with Riggs, when he met Britt, the chemistry turned him into a ghost. And then for good measure she murdered him afterwards.⠀
