This story is inspired from a song of the same name, by the artists Alias & Ehren. The song blends elements of instrumental hip hop, electronica, and jazz.
I wrote Lillian specifically so that it could be read in time with the song, the events of the story matching the music. You can listen to a recording of me reading Lillian along with the music on the audio player below. I recommend quality speakers or headphones for your listening experience.
