Blood, second chances and an intriguing western.
This was an incredibly short short story. And I’m really not sure what this story is about to be completely honest. There is something about westerns that frequently goes right over my head. And this is definitely one of them.
The main thing that I got out of the story was the idea of blood and not being given second chances. And, that not everything is as it seems. Most definitely not a story that I’m super excited about reading again if I’m being completely honest.
