Hello my loves,
I had the great pleasure of reading “All Things Beautiful,” a short story written by Jermaine Reed it’s by far an inspiring piece of literature.
All Things Beautiful is about a young writer named Brian, whose passion for writing is short-lived when his job search is coming up short. Desperate for money, he takes on a job as a home care provider and ends up caring for a paralyzed man named Mr. Kovac.
Three months into the job, Brian stumbles on a manila folder labeled “All Things Beautiful” in the attic of Mr. Kovac’s home while dusting. Curious, Brian opens up the unfinished manuscript and begins to read. Unbeknownst to Brian, an hour passes. Mr. Kovac is not happy about Brian’s unexplained absence.
Two more months go by after Brian gathers up the courage to ask stubborn Mr. Kovac about the unfinished manuscript found in the attic. Angered, Mr. Kovac, is still curious of Brian’s opinion. Brian encourages the old man to finish the beautifully written manuscript. However, Mr. Kovac quickly declines.
The next day Brian brings his laptop and persuades Mr. Kovac to tell the story while Brian types. Mr.Kovac gives in and begins to tell his story, few hours go by and finally finished, Mr. Kovac is pleased with the finished results. Once Brian brings up Mr. Kovac’s potential as a successful writer, Mr. Kovac quickly dismisses the idea.
Over the next four months, Mr.Kovac becomes a mentor to Brian by teaching him with creations of Mr. Kovac’s own.
Unfortunately 5 months later, Mr.Kovac passes away, leaving Brian the finished manuscript of “All Things Beautiful”.
I’m looking forward to knowing what Brian is going to do with the manuscript and his writing career now that he worked under Mr.Kovac expertise.
Look out for the full short story at Third Wednesday Magazine during the 2017 spring edition. You guys don’t want to miss this.
