Quick pitch

The ageing process ceases at age 20. When a person touches their soulmate, however, all the years past catch up to them. Dewey Elsner is woken to the sound of a rock smashing his car window. He drives away hurriedly to the sound of a man yelling for him to stay off his property. He wakes up the next morning parked on the back of a large field. Olive Kinney jogs up the road. Dewey attempts to lay his seat back, accidentally spilling his meal over himself. Olive notices the vehicle and taps on the window. She invites him to stay on the land and he’s confused at her hospitality. She indicates she knows he is ageless, and he tells her that he is 104 years old. Olive indicates that she is 107 and steps close to Dewey’s window. Dewey is uncomfortable with her closeness, which Olive attributes to a fear that she might be his soulmate. Dewey attempts to start his engine, but it does not turn over. Olive leaves and comes back with a hot plate of food. She gives it to Dewey and they talk of their pasts. Dewey wakes up to find Olive gone, but she has indicated that she will return tomorrow by writing in the window fog. The next day Dewey is attempting to fix his car, and Olive comes back and helps him. They spend together over a multitude of days. They have a conversation about Dewey’s brother and the last time Dewey touched someone, 18 years before. Olive puts on a glove and they hold hands. Another night, Olive comes to Dewey’s car and they have a discussion about death. They watch the sunrise, touch, and rapidly age together.
