Simon is secretly in love with his fellow coder Lucy. When he finds some comments in the old code he's fixing--professions of a coder's secret love for another, and a vow that the coder will make a move--Lucy insists they track down the code's author to learn how it went. But Simon isn't sure he wants to. The situation is too similar to his own, and he's afraid to learn it went badly. 5,900 words.
