A quick excerpt from his story “International Justice” :
The lapping of the water amalgamated with the blood pouring from the body that was hunched over a rock jutting along the banks of the lake. The moon illuminated the grim scene, created by the onlooker’s own hand. The energy at the restaurant was snuffed in an instant. The smoke of incense billowed, veiling the man’s face as he turned back around to his growing audience. He picked up the coffee which had been poured a moment before the incident and took a sip. Ethiopian coffee truly was the best in the world. Even on his worst nights, he could always feel alive by taking a swig of heaven’s dark nectar.
Barrick strives to bring the reader along a journey of words that inspires wonder, incites raw emotion, and brings the reader to question how they might have responded under similar circumstances. These tales are not original to the characters themselves but are a common expression of the tapestry that we each have been woven into in this beautiful masterpiece called humanity.
