The Merciless Ones is one of the standout stories comes toward the end of the collection. True to the collection’s title, each piece exhibits a strong, clearly defined voice, delivered in a range of forms. The stories we tell ourselves are not formed in a vacuum, but they are also not set in stone; these writers illustrate that stories are meant to be interrogated, and truths are meant to be told.
Editorial View Of The Merciless Ones
Corpses. Each one female and young – around my age, if that.They’re mounted on stakes at the mouth of the jungle, the evening shadows spreading inky tendrils over their ash-coloured skin and bulging, distended stomachs. They almost look like dolls…except dolls don’t have black masks hiding their faces like funeral cowls, and they certainly don’t smell putrid, like animal carcasses left too long in the sun. The stench of rot wafts past, and my stomach lurches. I don’t like the odour of meat even under normal circumstances, but this – the stink of those bodies displayed among the tangle of roots and ferns… Sweat turns my palms slick, and a subtle tremor begins in my muscles.
I focus on the necklace hidden under my armour, my touchstone in times like this. The mothers gave it to me some months ago to replace the one I inherited from my birth mother, Umu.When I tug on it mentally, a replying vibration travels through me – an acknowledgement from the mothers: they’re here with me. No matter how difficult things become, the goddesses are always there, silently supporting me.“Think we should risk takin’ them down, Deka?” Britta’s voice sounds oddly composed as it pushes against my whirling thoughts.Just last year, she would have been in tears. She was the typical Northern farm girl then – blonde, rosy-cheeked and plump. Now, her muscles are as formidable as her curves, her skin is golden from the desert sun, and her heart is hardened against such sights. Her entire posture bristles with rage, but she remains quiet as she stares at the bodies
