Spring Robin

Alice Tyrrell

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

‘I’m actually handling it all incredibly well. I haven’t eaten a single tub of Ben & Jerrys.’

Long cold nights, short cold days, three 9ams a week, and a slowly-healing heartbreak – Robin’s winter stretches on without an end in sight.

Luckily, with Sam and Jamie in the next rooms along, life feels a bit warmer and brighter, even if it does mean hearing Jamie’s terrible music blasting out in the early hours and waiting an extra forty minutes any time Sam’s in the shower. Friendship lights up G corridor where the crappy uni lighting fails.

But as Robin recovers and the trio tightens, things start getting complicated and feelings stand to get hurt. Love blooms, priorities waver, and chocolate mug cakes can’t quite chase off the lingering February chill.

Funny, heartfelt and moving, Spring Robin follows the happy highs and lonely lows of three friends in a corridor in the coldest, darkest season, but ultimately asks: if winter comes, can spring be far behind?
