This really was a beautiful short. It was also more emotional than I imagined it being and it really tugs at some heart strings. The whole OCD thing was well done and the relationship that develops in this was really great too. I loved Devin for Jude and his understanding was really great.
I will admit, I wasn't sure in the beginning if it would work well or not. But the author did a really nice job making things feel natural and believable. Nothing felt overly rushed, which is good for a short story, and I was overall impressed with the story.
