  1. 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. 🙂

  2. 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. 🙂

  3. 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. 🙂
