New Story: "Light on the Water" by Genevieve Valentine

"49 loved the hotel across the river, and that spring, when fog covered her, he knew he had to tell her.

She was all by herself on that side of the river, just her and the rocky shore and the long highway that wound in a ribbon far behind her, and she seemed always so lonely he wanted her to know she was not unloved.

He thought maybe he could court her, but all the life in him left at 5pm, and by the time the sun set all 49 could do was sit in the dark and watch her lights blinking on and off like the notes of a song."
