This is the definition of a short f/f story. Lane and Elsa bump into each other on a bridge and wind up sticking together when soldiers come and start shooting at them. Elsa believes that they are going to kill her and take the baby because she has heard rumors of that happening. They hole away in a basement and develop a relationship but wind up getting caught days later when they go out outside.
Even though this was fast paced and things happened quickly you could easily keep up and understand what’s going on. Elsa and Lane’s relationship developed fast but I guess it would in a situation like that. I enjoyed reading this story and I thought it was sweet for Elsa to name her son Eli.
The world has been destroyed by the Calamity virus, which has wiped out most of the population and left the survivors sterile. While searching for supplies, Lane encounters a young pregnant woman at the side of the road. Elsa is on the run from scientists who want to take her and her baby for research. Realizing she is in danger alone in the city, Lane takes Elsa home to her shelter beneath an abandoned factory.
Trapped together in a small room for weeks, the two experience an undeniable attraction to one another, but Lane has given up on life and any hope of finding love. Can Elsa and the impossible promise of new life give Lane the will to live again, or will Lane’s secrets tear their tiny family apart before it’s even complete?
