I've read thousands of short stories and viewed numerous series such as this one. I'm used to authors and screenwriters pushing us to the end and then leaving us wanting just a little more. Would that there was some hint to the ending, other than the fact that the young woman is an adventuress, lapping up experiences, being daring with public displays of affection and so on. They seem to be in love. He has a hard time accepting that he is lovable, but he goes for the ride. Finally, they find themselves in a dive in the tough part of time, staying the night. Is she into weird sex? Does she have a death wish? Is she crazy? These are all possibilities. She claims to have played this game before. He hasn't a clue. His final comment left me without any clues as to what is next. Is this rejection, acceptance, or what? I think I just feel cheated.
