Posted in Drama, Fantasy, Mike Resnick, Romance, Short Story on February 12, 2010 by dunesteef

When a man’s wife dies, he is left with little purpose in his life beyond pushing through to the end of each day. Then, in the middle of one of the worst snowstorms of the year, he gets a visitor. A man, stark naked, and freezing out in the snow. What could he possibly be doing here in the man’s backyard in this state?
