Nest and Q walk through the city. Nest speaks and Q listens. Mile by mile, Nest tells Q about her life, her family, her past . . . and her Chimaera, the beast that preys on her mind and causes her to lose herself. Q knows only that his love for Nest runs deeper than the demon that plagues her thoughts, that he loves her in spite of--or perhaps because of--the personal battle she fights every day.

Patrick Downes has written a tragically beautiful story about mental illness that I found impossible to put down. Told in streams of consciousness, Nest's life story is both hauntingly raw and magical. Q's silent presence each step of the way is a true testament to the fact that sometimes the greatest expression of love is about just being present and listening without judgement.
