A very short story! It's only about 850 words, but it has been lovingly crafted.

This is the story of the night patrolman on the Tangi Bridge. Fans of "The Lottery" and "The Lady or the Tiger" may enjoy this one.

The Tangi Bridge

"He didn't always see them jump, but the sounds were unavoidable. Some screamed on the way down; some went in dignified silence. But their lives always ended the same - with a loud, sickening splash.

A few chose to go at it alone, but most were grateful for his presence in their final hours. Several talked at length of their lives, although many were content to simply sit quietly beside him until dawn. Then, after steadying their nerves, they launched themselves off the creaking, wooden bridge and into the water below.

He had been told never to watch, but he always did. How could he not? The least he could do, he felt, was to be with them in those final, fleeting moments so they knew that they hadn't been alone, that someone would remember them.

Those who accepted the calling - really accepted it - went without fear. They were the fortunate ones, their calmness and serenity helping them recall what they had long been taught in school - how to hit the water at the ideal obliquity required for the fastest and least painful death.

The screamers were much harder to watch.

They frequently flailed on the way down, hitting the water, hard as stone, at an odd angle, crushing most of their structural bones. Survival instincts always kicked in, and they would splash around in a panic - helpless, thrashing sacks of broken limbs.

Whether they succumbed to the cold water or invisible injuries, eventually, they stilled, often floating in pools of dissipating wine as the impartial river swept their bodies out to sea."

Comprehensive lesson plans are also available.

Also available:
Jippa (a short horror story)

A longer short story, "The Executioner", is scheduled for May 2013.

HASH(0x8fbe381c) von 5 Sternen Enjoyable (Really) Short Story 6. Januar 2014
Von Michael Gallagher - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
As the title states, this is a very short story: it should take you about a minute or two to read it. However, it was an interesting diversion for me one afternoon as the author paints the picture to seem as if you are right there in the middle with his main character. It has a good flow to the story, and I wonder what would develop of this story line if it was expanded to novel length.

I picked this up for free during a Kindle promotion and, as I type this review, I see it is still free. I’d grab it at a free price, but if it does go to say 99 cents I’d give it a pass: not because of the story, but purely because of the shortness of the story.

Beautifully written. The author's ability to create such a fully realized characterization in such a brief story is an accomplishment to be marveled at. But the author goes far beyond that. Within the span of just a few words (woven seamlessly into the story and not mere exposition), she manages a feat of world building that is astonishing in such a brief tale. The reader is immediately immersed in the sense of foreboding that dwells within the inhabitants of that world.

It's an interesting short story though a bit sad. Bridges often connect people and places, but unfortunately they also seem to bridge the living and the dead.

Beautifully written, and incredibly sad short story. I would have liked more, but sometimes wonder if more would have taken away the impact.
