Post-Mortem by Terry Miller
Stewart Lively is a mortician and a loner. The only social interaction he has is with his sister, and with the corpses in the morgue. He wishes he had a girlfriend, but he’s too awkward. That and the fact that his profession seems to keep most women at a distance. That’s okay, though. Fact is, he’s too busy anyway. He meets his best friends on a cold slab, even though the friendship is fleeting. Lately, there’s been an abundance of beautiful women on his table, and his loneliness is at an all-time high.
An engaging story of a mortician who would rather relate to the dead than the living. Stewart's life skates the edge of disturbing and poignant, making this tale hard to turn away from because you just have to see how it'll play out. Definitely recommend.
This one just made me sad. Poor Stu. Poor lonely Stu. A good slightly creepy short.
Another great short from Terry! A mortician who prefers to interact with the dead rather than the living,.... this story was creepy, chilling and sad! A great quick read, Terry's stories always leave you feeling satisfied and fulfilled, and with an unexpected but brilliant twist at the end! 5/5 dancing corpses! ♀️♂️⚕️
