Man at the door: “Hey man, it’s Jerry, can I come in?”
Patrick: “Yeah, give me a minute.”

Patrick opens the door

Jerry: “You hear about that girl? It’s pretty messed up. And she was missing for a while too. I heard that her parents have up looking for her and assumed she was dead within hours of looking for her.”
Patrick: “Yeah I agree, well did you want something?”
Jerry: “Oh yeah, thanks for reminding me. The festival is tonight are you two going to be there?”

Sena Lim: I've been a rotten girl reader. I read a lot of BL stories, Chinese stories in particular. This story is good. An interesting love story between an autistic and an assassin, I couldn't imagined how it would be until I've read this. Simple and direct plot is what I could say about it.
