Teaser Tuesday: Love and Other Theories, Playlist for the Dead, The Undertaker's Daughter, & Asylum City
Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
High school brought people together; graduation tore them apart. Love wasn't forever; it was for a moment. And the only thing that made anyone special was the ability to spread out the moments of bliss. To savor them instead of gorging on them.

"So, this playlist," she said. "Can I hear something else from it? Do you have your iPod?" "Always," I said, and got it out of my pocket. I thought about what song to play for her. There were so many darkly beautiful songs on there, but they were so sad, and I didn't want to bring the mood back down. I wondered if I should make it a test- pick one of the songs I hadn't heard before and see if she knew it- but I wasn't sure what I wanted her to say. Finally I chose one, and we shared earbuds again, like we had the day of Hayden's funeral.

I walked down the neat rows of caskets often enough that they became a mundane piece of funeral furniture. I never climbed in one. I thought about it, but they were like a well-made hotel bed--I didn't like to crumple the sheets until it was time to go to sleep.

A confession might be considered the 'king of evidence,' but royalty wasn't what it used to be.
