Appeared in Nightmare magazine.
The pyromaniac narrator and his lover create a great bonfire. Young woman was talked into going in (sacrifice?), but narrator pulls her out, says it was a lie, what she'd been told. The lover says it wasn't a lie, says she come back, goes back out to sea.
Since the lover's actions are enigmatic (the narrator's a little less so), this feels like an epic battle between gods who love but war in our hearts.
