He starts reading the email.
I had a great time with you last night.
So far so good. But wait: there’s more . . . Except there isn’t.
Clyde furrows his brows. What else? He taps the side of his monitor, as if coaxing the screen to cough out more text. Can emails contain cliffhangers? She had a great time and; she had a great time but; she had a great time until.
Again he blames Roger. If not for the goddamn joke, this email would have Clyde on Cloud Nine. Instead he wrestles with paranoia. Isn’t there implied finality in the email’s terseness? Like: I had a great time with you last night. But now it’s time to move on.
Yeah. Move on to Roger.
Well, that’s it: Roger has to die.”
Predestination’s a Bitch by Sean Eads
