    Summary

    JJ’s never been to The Lookout.

    He knows where it is, in theory.

    The polished wooden beach house is hard to miss---crystallized windows flicker in the sunlight, chalk-white walls blend in with the snow. It all works together so seamlessly he can’t drag his eyes away, it irritates him. Like the reference on a puzzle box, distant and finished.

    There’s also the fucked-up fact that he drives by it everyday.

    *

    After years of disjointed texts and not-so-subtle avoidance tactics, JJ ends up snowed in for a few days with Kiara in her Kook beach house. They try to make up for lost time.

    Or, four Christmases that sucked for JJ and Kiara and one that wasn’t so bad.

    Summary

    Slowly, carefully, the gentleman pulls out a gold pocket watch and lays it down on the work-table. All his urgency seems to drain away as he looks forlornly down at the old, slightly battered thing.

    “It’s broken,” he says quietly.

    He sounds like that too. Broken.

    Summary

    She’d let John B make it for her mostly to humour him. They’d sat in the now-empty cafeteria, painstakingly putting together a profile that Kiara had internally sworn to delete as soon as she got home.

    It was simple and concise; coy enough to draw in visitors, but with enough information to paint a good picture. Kiara Carerra. 25. Marine conservationist at the North Carolina Zoo. Likes: animals, the ocean, recycling and feminist writers. Dislikes: the patriarchy, microplastics, and crabs. (Okay, so the crabs left a mark. Sue her.)

    But then she starts getting matches.

     

    or, Kiara goes on a string of bad dates at the same restaurant. The hot annoying bartender isn’t exactly a drawback.
