Alternating between the past and the present, Laura’s life and death are explored—how she met Shadow, how she died, and how exactly she came to be sitting on the edge of his motel room bed.

Shadow and Laura meet for the first time. The encounter isn’t the most romantic but was it love at first sight?
Laura has made a tough decision and brings it up to Shadow.
