The flashback dialogue on this page went thru many revisions. The challenge I set for myself was to show how (and what) Trane knows about Allumette without getting too expositional or having the action grind to a dead stop. Not using “thought balloons” or narration captions/voice-overs for this story really made me work to make it clear that it’s a flashback… hopefully I was successful. If not, I’m sure y’all will let me know.
