Romance

This is my entry to my own challenge on the Prose Workshop forum: to write a story that breaks as many as possible of the revered rules of short-story-writing but gets away with it. In fact I don't think this one breaks nearly enough rules, but to come third or fourth in this particular challenge is perhaps the most desirable outcome.
