On a Europe trip, every college student’s dream, Binny finds it difficult to get the full experience. Making friends and memories that last forever feels out of reach. Those moments are made for normal people.
Not someone like Binny.
So, when Maggie approaches out of nowhere and suggests they run off together, Binny’s shocked.
So shocked, in fact, that “yes” becomes easier to say.
In the tangled avenues of modern day Venice, secrets unwind. And in the quiet away from tours and chaperons, feelings bloom anew. But what will Binny make of these moments?
Can something so brief mean much?
Rei Rosenquist brings you a modern world tinted with magic that feels like it belongs in your back yard. Small magic with big implications. Small moments with big heart. Everyday people finding big truths to carry wherever life leads.
A short story in about 6000 words.

About the Author
Rei Rosenquist first remembers life as seen out the high window of a hotel balcony. Down below is a courtyard, swarms of brightly dressed tourists, the beach. The memory is nothing but a blue-green washed image. Warmth and sunlight. Here, they are three years old, and this is the beginning of a nomadic story-teller’s life.
Over the years, they have traveled to many countries, engaged many peoples, picked up new habits, and learned new languages. But, some things never change. For them, these are stories, food service, and traveling. These three passions have bloomed from hobbies, studies, and jobs into a way of life.
These days, Rei can be found in between Tokyo, Kailua, and Bellingham, Washington pouring beautiful latte art, baking off a batch of famous savory scones, and cozying up with a laptop to obsessively write mountains of dark speculative fiction.
