Act One

This story is dedicated to anyone who's LGBTQ+ and needs a little bit of happiness in their lives. This novella is by Natalie.


Kia and Paige Mueller sit professionally in an exquisite booth in Atlantis's Dinner House, a restaurant the sisters used to eat at as children.

Kia feels a tear slip down her cheek. Now she's alone. Really alone.

Kia feels her hand slip on a smooth paper and she picks it up.

It reads;

Help me. London Liar. ASAP.
