The Petals Abide, by Benjanun Sriduangkaew

Clarkesworld Magazine, April 2015; 6,230 words
Rating: 1, Needs improvement

In a strange, distant future, someone resurrects an assassin and they have a relationship.

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

The story is terribly overwritten to the point where it is physically painful to read. The excess words often don't actually add meaning; e.g. "homunculus of encryption" and "isometry rosettes." There is a story here, if you slog through all the words, but the effort is very great.
