The bridges for the train tracks ran together over South Street in downtown Indianapolis, close to the Alexander hotel, forming a rough triangle.

The ivy hung down over the the top of the trellis, vines creeping back down toward earth, reaching to where Jessica and Pat stood underneath with their bridal party. This small bridal party looked ensconced in the greenery of the Inn at Irwin Gardens. Behind them, behind the brick wall that the ivy grew over, […]
