The Death of Olivier Becaille

The Death of Olivier Becaille

in EPUB format, also available for Kindle or in PDF

It was on a Saturday, at six in the morning, that I died after a three days' illness. My wife was searching a trunk for some linen, and when she rose and turned she saw me rigid, with open eyes and silent pulses. She ran to me, fancying that I had fainted, touched my hands and bent over me. Then she suddenly grew alarmed, burst into tears and stammered:

"My God, my God! He is dead!"

A very short novella of 5 chapters, detailing the death of the husband of a poor couple in Paris. It is narrated by the dead man, who has doubts he is dead.
It is actually rather nice to read a story where no one is cruel or evil.
