Sometimes, it’s Cruel to Be Kind. In the RIGHT measure…
One location: the death chamber/a prison cell.
Two people: a doctor, and a desperate patient.
One dilemma: the patient wants to die. The doctor doesn’t quite know why.
DOCTOR: How is death a kindness?
Sure, the Chinese conquest is audible outside – but who wishes for death because of that?
It’s not just that. There’s one more reason. A reason far less noble than avoiding capture. A reason the doctor understands… deep down.
And it’s reason that may factor into his decision… even with soldiers pounding on their door.
What’s that reason? Will the needle find his patient’s arm? Take a minute out of your day to read A Kindness and find out!
And grab it for option before the opportunity (and life) slips away.
About the reviewer: Hamish Porter is a writer who, if he was granted one wish, would ask for the skill of being able to write dialogue like Tarantino. Or maybe the ability to teleport. Nah, that’s nothing compared to the former. A lover of philosophy, he’s working on several shorts and a sporting comedy that can only be described as “quintessentially British”. If you want to contact him, he can be emailed: hamishdonaldp “AT” gmail.com. If you’d like to contact him and be subjected to incoherent ramblings, follow him on Twitter @HamishP95.
About the writer: The co-writer of the acclaimed graphic novel Chasing the Dead, Tim Westland received first place for Balls Out in the NNYM 15 page contest. An outstanding writer with an eye for the details, his IMDB page can be found here.
