The thing was, I had already heard this story, many many times. I knew how it would play out. I knew all the tropes. I probably could have quoted the lines before they said them. I wanted a new narrative. Time to mix it up.
A fantastic story, so do read it. The absolute hardest thing (for me at least) is when you see a wrong happening, a wrong that you could try to stop, to make the decision to try and stop it. It’s so much easier to walk away — I think we all know that — but I have massive respect for those that do step forward to try and right the wrong.
Anyways, good story.
