In Victorian London, a young playwright struggles with both writer's block and mediocrity. He begins a dalliance with the mystical spirit absinthe, however, and meets and falls utterly in love with a woman unlike any other. She inspires and enlivens him; but the man who knows him better than any other cannot help but be wary of the profound and disturbing change that he sees.
A Gothic short story; 5,400 words.
