There was a new guy in the neighbourhood, and Farhan had his eye on him.

They lived in the same block, used the same gym facilities, and as Farhan he’s likely to be gay too, as Farhan could tell from his online dating app.

He sends the new guy a nudge, and waits for an answer that never comes.

There’s an emptiness in his hookups, as he sees the new guy in the periphery of his life, and as he reconsiders his spirituality.
