Short story (5758 words)
Gemma is out with her friend Josh, vaguely being his wingman. They try to help each other pick up women, and sometimes it even works. Then they start making bets about someone they’ve just seen, and who can pull her, and whether she’s even interested in either of them, and things start getting a little weird. Gemma isn’t sure where it is going to end.
This isn’t erotica, just to be clear. There’s no sex in it. It’s more about being friends, and how that’s both complicated and good at the same time.
And I made it into a graphic novel! There’s more of an explanation at the end.
