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

Pro: The narrator wants a relationship with the cook, and by the end of the story, she has that.

Con: There’s not much substance to the story. It’s never clear what they see in each other, what the narrator is fighting for, etc. It's not entirely clear it's speculative fiction at all.
