There’s blood everywhere. Some from the gash on my forehead. Some from the cuts I can only feel. Lying on broken glass isn’t just painful. It’s a feeling that’s unexplainable. Especially when you’ve been tossed into the air and have landed hard on a carpet of sharp, jagged pieces. I can’t see right. The impact […]
Goodbye Terry by Terveen Gill — Gobblers / Masticadores // Editores: Manuela Timofte / j re crivello
Such an intense and riveting piece! The urgency and immediacy of this sort of tale strikes at the most primal fears in all of us, and you’ve certainly delivered the goods here, Terveen. Another one-minute masterpiece by one of my favorite writers. 🙂
Mike always says it well. 🙂
Thank you so much, Mike. It’s my pleasure and honor to be able to make an exceptional writer like you feel like he hasn’t wasted a precious minute. For me, tapping into emotions is the way to put across an impactful story. I am so glad to have you here. 🙂
Wow! Chilling and melancholic! A job well done!👍
Thank you so much, Aaysid. The horror of an accident probably leaves its mark forever.
Terry saves a life, hope he is in heaven now.
Good deeds should lead there. Thank you, Cassa. 🙂
oh the horror ! terrifically well written; I should have read this before I posted my horror piece-
Thank you so much, John. Life and its sudden turns can be horrific. 🙂
I was in a traffic accident once and it was so quick that one felt like one hit a wall. There’s no escaping from it. It’s awful. I think one thing good about COVID is that so many people work from home or avoid going out for activities that the road is quieter and the accident I saw not as many as before. Actually I can only remember seeing one accident since the pandemic started.
That must have been terrible for you, Haoyan. To be injured and also temporarily helpless is a feeling that cannot be described. The more the traffic, the more the chances of accidents. One tiny mistake can mean doom for so many. I hope you stay safe in the future. Thank you so much for sharing so much with me. 🙂
The way you put all the pain and suffering so vividly made me feel as if the name was indeed ringing inside my head! scary and wonderfully written!!
I’m glad that I dragged you into the story, Deepak. But otherwise I pray that you always remain well and safe. Thank you so much. 🙂
What an amazing write, Terveen! Sent me running for the box of Kleenex. 😭
Thank you so much, Jeff. I’m going to have to make you laugh next time. Will do that. 🙂
