Still - Mary Calmes It's no secret that I love reading stories from Mary Calmes and I've been waiting on this one. Sivan Cruz and Walter Wainwright have been married for seventeen years. Their marriage hasn't seemed right to Sivan for quite a while now so he asks Walter for a divorce. We do a bit of a time jump to the past that helps establish how things began for these men. They'd been working together for two years and had just decided to see each other when Walter gets some horrible news. The past is glossed over quite a bit and we revisit it as Sivan thinks back on his marriage. We then we see how the separation is going as they are run into each other during the nine months they haven't been living together. This is a very short story so things are pretty rushed. I really enjoyed reading about Sivan and Walter, there were a lot of tense angry moments when things break down. Lots of frustration as well since it seems that it's very much just a lack of communication at the heart of it all. I think that if we had a POV from Walter my rating would have jumped, I needed to know where his head was at in a few places. While this satisfied my Calmes craving until the next story, I can't say it's one of my favorites mostly because the length demanded something fast and furious that left more gaps and questions that I would have liked to have answered.
