Digital Nomad by Koji A Dae. Narrated by J.S. Arquin. Featuring an afterword recorded by Koji A. Dae.  #scifi


"Maybe?" He doesn't raise his voice, but he stands. He won't look at me. "What are you waiting for, Charlie? Don't you love me?"

That's when the emotions tumble in. Fear sends my heart racing. Desire dampens the space between my legs. Confusion clenches my throat. He goes blurry from the tears in my eyes.
