What happens when you wake up bloody but without a memory Very well written short story 11 pages 4stars because it could have been longer I m a fan of short stories Mostly because they aren t given the credit they deserve It s really not so easy telling a complete tale with few words, especially when the main character doesn t know who he is or how he ended up in the situation to begin with Yet still, this was a fulfilling read I ll be checking outby this author.
