"All the best stories start with desperation. A want so large it twists like hunger pangs tying your stomach up in knots. Jackie knows a thing or two about that. A want so great she’d do anything to ease the fire of it. Maybe even wade into the Dequindre up to her knees because Marquis dared her to. Even though the fishing is bad, the mosquitoes thick, and they all know the stories. Desire and desperation can do that."


I like to think of this story as an ode to Parent Trap (1996). Can you see it, too?
