Congratulations to Alpha graduate Getty Hesse (2013), whose story “Death and His Lover” appeared today at Daily Science Fiction:
Death sips Earl Grey. He prefers Oolong; it reminds him of his late mother, Death before him. But Jerome enjoys it as well, and the first night after he was run over he had gazed at Death’s mug, following it with his eyes as Death sipped and placed it back on the mahogany table. The only flavor of tea that Death knows Jerome hates is Earl Grey, so that is what he drinks, and Jerome seems grateful.
