We’re never at our best when we’re hungry. But when Gabriel adds a late night rave, a drunken bicycle ride, and the heat of a Florida night, he finds the siren song of Taco Bell is impossible to resist. Inspired by a true story, this Florida crime fan fiction will make you reflect on just how far you’d go to satisfy a craving.
