Angel of Death and the Medic
Published on 08-30-2017 03:52 PM
One of the most powerful trigger to a certain memory is the sense of smell. The smell of freshly cut grass, women perfume, fresh pastry, and most unpleasantly, the smell of death. I spent 11 years working in the Emergency Medical Services (EMS), and currently working as a ‘Last Responder&rsqu  Read More...

A red Mercedes-Benz stopped in front of the small wooden house, jarringly out of place in the old village. The clean-shaven man in the front passenger seat eyed the house and said, “I’m not sure-” “Come on, Ken. Don’t you want to find out what’s b  Read More...

It was pouring heavily that night. I particularly remembered that day because people were holding up their hands forming a temporary shed, scurrying to the nearest shelter they could find to stay out of the downpour. I was sitting in a corner of a convenience store, sucking, a strawberry flavored lo  Read More...

"Give it to me," one of the girls cries out. "No, it's mine," the other one says. "You lost yours. This is mine," comes the retort. "No, the one that's lost is yours.
