Whilst putting some bed covers in the washing machine today and just before putting it on a 40° cycle I had an idea cone to me. It related to something a character would do in The Last Alive. By changing this detail everything else just seems to click into place. The ending, before seeming quite strange and loose, now makes sense.
I’ll elaborate more soon dear reader, it is late now and I have work tomorrow. Suffice to say I am pleased with this development.
