The Man (a short story)

By Abraham Lopez

Thriller, Short stories | eBook

A thrilling morality story unfolds, pitting a mysterious, schizophrenic homeless man against his unsuspecting adversary. Their briefly shared past, though insignificant to one, is the other’s entire focus that pushes him onto a homicidal path that has no forks and one destination.

Abraham spent his formative years in rural Colorado, where he was born. He has also lived in Northern Nevada, Virginia, and Northwest Arkansas. These disparate environments and local cultures have had a great impact on Abraham's view of America and his writing styles. Though educated as a computer programmer, Abraham hopes to be a full-time writer in the near future.

Was Brad guilty? Wasn't he? Did any of it really happen outside of Jerry's mind? I don't know; and I like that I don't know.
This angry and sad story seems stuck in my head, and I know I'll be thinking about it for some time to come. Jerry's illness means that his observers [readers, too] have even less chance of distinguishing his hallucinations from reality than he does, which makes him an utterly sympathetic character.
Some word choices I found odd [e.g., "rivulet" where I expected "torrent"], but in all, a nicely crafted work.

This short story was well written and quite poetic in places. It was intriguing and left the reader thinking. There were so many questions left unanswered and so much more I wanted to know. I would love to see a full length novel made out of this brief snapshot.
