Zeke wants something more in life, but what he’s about to get might be a bit more than he bargained for…
It took me a little while to really get into the swing of this story, but once I did… oooh, I can see the potential for the rest of the series. There is such thing as getting more than you bargained for, and Zeke certainly got that when his life changed forever and finally gained meaning.
This short story had the typical, kind of required, mysterious great relative (in this case the uncle) bequeathing all of his belongings to someone missing their purpose in life. It had the eccentric estate left behind, and the sudden urging to follow a life’s path that was previously unexpected. All that is kind of expected and typical (a lot of stories I’ve read have followed this line of legacy giving, it’s a classic for a reason…). But that’s where it stops. After having his new legacy forced upon him, Zeke suddenly finds himself with no income, a shortened life span, and just generally a gift that he really really didn’t want…
