“Are you referring to the ‘strange and sorrowful coincidences’? That’s what I call them. I don’t know what you’ve heard, but they’re no ordinary, everyday thing, just so we’re clear.”

A young woman rumoured to be possed of a strange supernatural ability and a young man take a walk. As she tells him her story it emerges that he has a specific request of her concerning a problem of his own. A charming tale of unlikely friendship found.
