In the story SIRENS, the protagonist is a firefighter that has to cope with his past. He must remember how he could have saved a rookie firefighter’s life and puts the burden all on himself. In order to struggle through his PTSD, a fellow friend jumps into the action to comfort and help him along the way.
The next story follows a similar path, except the story is a little more personal. ONCE LOST, NOW FOUND is a message to another individual that has influenced the life of the narrator. He tells the audience issues that he has faced thanks to the help of his childhood friend. But, the friend went down a wrong path and the narrator hopes that his message will get across to him as the friend’s influence did for the narrator.
Finally in the science fiction piece called APPLICATIONS OUTCAST, we follow the shenanigans of Vaughn, a socially awkward individual who is robbing the bank for his late father’s superior cell phone. Vaughn does not much struggle to obtaining the phone before police arrive; instead he has more trouble dealing with the people in the bank. From the annoying kid to the attractive teller, Vaughn has too much already on his plate to deal with more crap.
