This story is from a short fiction creative writing class I took in 2014. I had gotten the word “Ecclesiastes” stuck in my head because it is legitimately the most fun word to say. It’s a book from the bible that has themes heavily relating to death and God’d judgement with the idea that “death levels all”. It’s definitely not a light, happy read but the idea of death and the different forms it takes in impacting peoples lives ended up being the theme of this story.Ecclesiastes-edit-2016
I hope you enjoyed this story, it was a bit of a different one for me. I’d love, as always, to hear your feedback!
