Stormy Night, A 20TweetTales Noir Story

Wrote this 20TweetTales piece a few months ago, just forgot to share it here. Stormy Night continues a bit on my Noir theme, though this one is has a bit of a different bend at the end. This is based on Jasper Zhao’s mysterious piece, “Something happened…” Thread by @WriterWilke: …
