No one expects to run out of love. We fall for neighbors, strangers, celebrities, and gods, but we rarely consider the consequences of being so careless with our own hearts. To Demi Harper, the thought of running out of love is nothing more than another of her sister's cautionary tales, told to protect her from heartache. But the loss of the one person in the world who loves her in return proves that it may not be so ridiculous a thought, after all. A gasp, a pain, and a foreboding silence within her chest leads Demi to a strange, dark place outside of possibility and time. Beyond the domain of happiness and love, Yesterwary is filled only with the reminders of all that is left behind by those who give their hearts to those who do not want them.


Stars and signs and street reflectors streaked past him in glowing, muddled lines as he sped down the highway. The night became more blurred with each messy sip from the flask. He felt nothing but the burn of alcohol in his throat and the weight of emptiness in his chest.

Stars and signs and street reflectors meandered past her, guiding her, like beacons of hope, toward a dream she never thought she’d obtain. The night was open and inviting, each mile-marker bringing her one step closer to a new life. She felt nothing but excitement and possibility.

His eyelids drooped as he tossed the empty flask into the backseat, and rummaged through a plastic bag on the floor until his grip tightened around a bottle of whiskey.

Her eyes widened at the sight of the headlights swerving across the lanes, and her knuckles whitened as her grip tightened around the steering wheel.

He was too numb to react to the sound of the blaring horn.

She was too late to react to the sound of the crushing metal.

Lights and sirens whirled around him as he came-to. A trail of sticky red matted his dark, greasy mane to the steering wheel. His eyes focused in on the EMT who was trying to pry him from the mangled heap, and he wished for nothing more than to be left there in the ruin; to die.

Lights and sirens whirled around her as she faded away. A quilt of glass and dirt held her to the cold ground. Her eyes focused in on the stars above as they beckoned for her company, and she wished for nothing more than to stay behind; to survive.

He never saw her face.

His was the last face she would ever see.
