I’m going to be sacrificed. But that’s alright, I’ve been given four months to live anyway. Might as well be of some use before that. I’m hoping it’s not some stupid reason like appeasing a god or bringing copious rain. Those excuses are so passe. Cliched. How about some originality?

How indeed, Terveen. I am sure there are still some people out there trying to work out the conundrum. Perception (or misperception, in this case) is a strange thing. A tasty and excellent read for a Tuesday.
Haha. Thank you so much, Davy. Perception is the key to practically everything. Hope you’re have a great weekend. 🙂
So imaginative. Loved it as always.
This is such a great story, Terveen!
Thank you so much, Dawn. I really appreciate it. 🙂
I hope his urban body tastes semi decent instead of leathery and full of fat.
Haha! Now that’s a brilliant angle, Cassa. I think the tribals may think twice next time. 🙂
Hahahaha I bet.
every line of this delightfully imagined tale is wonderful; worth reading over and over for the delicious phrases and the lovingly caricatured protagonists; this one goes to the tip of my list!! what a hoot 🙂
Lol. Thank you very much, John. It seems soup can be dangerously misleading. Quite a muddle indeed. 🙂
The knives are to make the narrator a holey sacrifice 😉
Good story! 🙂
Haha! That is the crux – hopefully tasty. Thanks so much. 🙂
Thank you very much, Akshita. 🙂
I think they will have an upset stomach for a long time if they do finally decide to do what the story indicates. 🙂 Interesting and humorous chain of thoughts this man has as he walks towards what could be his last walk in the woods!!!
Yes, indigestion does seem to be the end result of this soupy broth. Haha. Thank you so much. 🙂
Another classic Terveen Gill offering! I love this guy’s cluelessness, which puts him in the running for a Darwin Award. Fun stuff from a brilliant writer. Thanks, Terveen! 🙂
That’s hilarious, Mike! He definitely deserves to win. Thanks so much, Mike. Always appreciate your support and encouragement. 🙂
Wow! It is quite an engaging short story, Terveen! You are a queen of this format!✨👍
Thank you so much, Aaysid, for the lovely compliment and shiny crown. Much appreciated! 🙂
Impressive. Look at you, showing off your writing chops. I found myself completely drawn in! Well done, Terveen!
Thank you so much, Rhyan. Means a lot! Take care of yourself. 🙂
Awesome story, Terveen. Soup with a fork, that killed me. 😂
Thanks so much, Jeff. Take care and have a great weekend. 🙂
Wow, she’s going to be cooked in a soup. Oh, that is so terrifying. You always end the story at the most crucial time. 😂
Lol. Thanks so much, Haoyan! I exit before things heat up too much. 🙂
