  1. Some beautiful insight into Heyem’s character here: so subtle, yet so revealing! How much longer can Alexand and her lover hold out against the disease that ravages them? I have a feeling the answer is near…

    1. Thanks, Frederick, I can’t wait to tell the rest of their story. This has been waiting for me to tell it for over 20 years now. I’m glad you’re enjoying reading.

  2. Hi Cheryl. Heyem just gets better and better. This is a lovely intimate and very believable family scene. So good. The drawings are brilliant too – I love the second one – there’s a real sense of melancholy to it. Have a good week.

    1. Hi Richard, thank you. I love (as you know) writing for Heyem. I think Alex is secretly happy she’s there, even though Heyem has a very odd way of showing her support! For me, these scenes (when the twins are younger) are fun to write, whatever the subject matter. I feel like I’m watching my own family 🙂

Keep it alive...
