Reactions and Reviews
Many of the most satisfying third-party viewpoint stories tell us something about the observer as well as the observed, giving us a glimpse of how the observation itself is meaningful to the one who witnesses. This story is a lovely example of this type. The observer is an OC employee of CI5. He's an elderly man who sees a revealing moment between Bodie and Doyle at a point when his own life is about to undergo a great change. He takes into that change his response to B/D. Castalia has a knack I admire for communicating a lot in few words and sparse imagery; that's one of the elements I like about this story as well as much of her other short fiction.
