The difference between night and day becomes dangerous for this hero’s wife
July 12 – August 18, 2018
Cameron doesn’t remember what he does at night, and Karyssa doesn’t tell him. He's just retired from the Navy SEALs, and most of his life has been classified. What's left, he mostly doesn't want to talk about. His young bride thinks his night terrors may her way in. During the day, they negotiate dinner plans, career ambitions, and video games. At night, he is both more available and more dangerous. The story moves forward in time, flipping back and forth between short daytime and shorter nighttime scenes, as Karyssa tries to connect with Cameron through nostalgic skype sex and secretly learned Arabic sleep talk. In the end, she will risk both of their lives to reach him.
