E Hyderabaadus06 Aug 2017
From Aliterate volume 1, August's story is Megan Chaudhuri's E. Hyderabaadus --
It's barely dawn and already I've sweated through my cotton dress, but Conchi doesn't say anything as she helps me sit at my workbench. Hazy gray light slants through my shop's front window, reflecting off the diagnostic laptop and the gutted phone I was repairing yesterday. The light diffracts like a prism through vials of antiseptic ethanol and freeze-dried virus kept nearby–just in case. I never forget los Días de Silencio.
