Slender Son - part 3 "How was school?" mother asks tiredly. She is making dinner.Slender Son - part 33 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I shrug. I'm never very talkative around my mother. I don't need to, really. She's an expert at body language.
She sighs as she stirs, "Did you stay the whole day?"
"Why is that?"
I frown, "There was an incident."
Instead of looking surprised, or giving me a disappointed look, she just sighs, "You were out back, yes?"
I nod. I know what her next question will be already, and I prepare myself for it.
She turns towards me, and I get a full view of her pleasantly round stomach. Mother is pregnant. This is why she wishes to speak with father. She's asked me not to tell him, and I have kept my word. He does not know of this at all. He hasn't see mother in four months, enough time for her to start getting a baby belly.
Slender Son - Part 6 I have nowhere to go. Nowhere. Where does father live? The woods. I can't live in the woods. I can't eat kids... I stop after a few minutes of going through the woods, stop to think. Where can I go? What are the options?Slender Son - Part 63 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
There are none. I'm on my own. I sit down on the ground, in the pine needles that prickle my hands when I press them to the ground. Can I build a fort here? Just for temporary? Looking around, I see sticks, leaves. I can lean the taller branches on trees and cover them up. Just for the night. Right?
I can't. It falls four times before I give up. I move on. Where to go, then? Can I become a hermit? Were Todd and Spencer even telling the truth about "telling some people"? What if they had been bluffing? Damn, why am I so gullible? I trudge back to the house. Before I go inside ,I happen to peer in. Mother is talking to some men in uniform. She looks close to tears. I bolt back into the woods; my long legs carry me for miles before I finally get tired and stop
Slender Son - part 7 A plan. That's what I need. Too bad there's nothing I can think of. The air is getting thick. Muggy. Where have I even ended up? Okay. Got something. Step 1: Find out where I am. Step 2: Figure out how far that is from home. But what next?Slender Son - part 73 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
This town seems deserted, save the checkout guy at the gas station. He isn't very friendly-looking though. Well what must I look like, I think. What did I look like to him? I should find a residential area. No. Walking up to someone's house uninvited just to ask where I am? Who does that? That guy in the blue suit might've been helpful. But then again, he thinks I'm homeless. Wait. I am. Shit. Okay, Step 1: Find out where I am Step 2: Find a place to live. Step 3: Figure out how far I am from home. Priorities, man.
What else is there? I can try another store. Most of them look like they're abandoned. Maybe I can use an abandoned building to live. That's a thought. Wait, but what if other homeless people already live there? I'll check, first.
Slender Son - part 4 I arrive back home in the afternoon. I'm so tired. I go straight to my room, set up my bookshelf, and then take a nap.Slender Son - part 43 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I have a nightmare.
It's the one I always have, where I am being chased, by what I'm not sure. I can never get farther away, just closer and closer until there are two clawed hands gripping my shoulders, finding my neck. One swings, slices me open and then -
I wake up in a cold sweat. Feeling shaky, I decide what I should do to make myself feel better, as the feeling will not shake on its own. Searching through the boxes, I find what I want. The DVD and portable player. I grab them both and head out back. This is what I always do. Wherever my family is, we're always near the woods. When everything changes, when we move, the constant is the patch of woodlands surrounding us.
I find my clearing and sit down, turn the player on, insert the disk. The firs
Slender Son - Part 8I wake up with a start, wait a moment to remember where I am. I can't. Wasn't I outside before? I only remember vaguely. My whole body feels asleep, still. The pins and needles feeling. You know it.Slender Son - Part 83 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I look around this room. Sterile white, with too-bright lights all around. A peach-colored curtain separates me from whatever lies beyond. Suddenly It clicks. I am in a hospital. The memory of it all comes back. A woman, I don't know who, came and brought me here. I need to leave. Quickly.
Upon moving to get up, I find that there are several tubes running to and from my arms, chest, and wrists. I rip them out. My whole body still feels so numb. There is a new noise. A loud, never-ending beep. It's a heart monitor. I've caused it to flat-line. Being quick is now extremely important.
When I rise to my feet, I barely even feel myself falling over. My feet are too numb for me to walk. Somehow, I entangle myself in the curtain. I struggle with it until I hear people. Talking. I stay completely s
Slender son - Part 5Spencer and Todd are hanging out with their stupid friends. I walk past them towards the kitchen, nonchalantly, to get some water.Slender son - Part 53 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Sage, how nice of you to join us. We tried calling you, you know," Spencer says.
I mutter, "Phone was off."
"Well come sit down, man."
Reluctantly, cautiously, I wander over and sit down in a free chair, still pretending I can't see. Why do they want me here? What are they planning to do?
Todd sighs as he loses and hands off the game controller to another guy, there, "Mom says we have to start including you when we do stuff."
"Oh," I should have known. Mother is always the reason that Spencer and Todd hang out with me. They wouldn't even speak to me if she didn't make them. They all keep playing the game; never offer me a turn or anything. They talk amongst each other. It's boring, really. After a bit, I get up to go do something else, maybe homework.
I walk to my room, pluck a book off of my shelf, and get to reading. It's a favorite of mine. I could say
Slender Son - finalIt hurts. Everything hurts. I am in an apartment. Had I fallen asleep in the woman’s car? How could I have done that? She could be against me. I look around, my neck aching a little bit. I am at the tail-end of my growth spurt. The major pain has subsided. This apartment is neatly furnished, for a woman with no family to live with. All white walls, white and glass décor. Even the couch that I am laying on is a weird egg-shell color.Slender Son - final3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Stand, I encourage myself. You need to stand and find a way out. Just then, the woman walks into the room. I lay my head down and pretend to still be passed out there. She walks over and leaves water on the coffee table next to where I lay. She then returns to the other room. I sit up. Is the water safe? Am I thirsty enough to want to find out? No. I am not.
I stand and walk over to the room that the woman has entered. Peeking in, I glance around, making sure that I am not spotted. This is the kitchen. Backing away from that doorway, I head to
They told me....They told me I wasn't good enough.They told me....3 years ago in Drama More Like This
They told me that I was a freak.
How would you react?
The tears are real.
When I was young.
I was naive.
They never listened.
My voice is here! It's not nothings that should end up in the wind.
Feelings are a funny thing.
I don't think we should have any.
But then where would the world be now?
A heartless race with even more killing then before.
I tried to talk. I tried to show kindness.
That kindness was considered annoying and I learned the hard way, that you can't trust people.
I'm not ADD or ADHD. Those are fine people as well.
They judge me. They don't even know me.
I'm alone in this fire. It gets closer and traps me in it.
I sat there and sang my heart out. I stayed good and pure.
My friends were with me. They know my sadness and will stay with me till the end.
The fire gets closer. It warms me uncomfortably.
Everyone pressures me. They spread rumors and horrible words that shake me to my knees.
How could they say those things?
My friends they l

All is well, and it had been a week since you had your girls night. It had been a while, but it was worth it.

He seemed to stare at you...without eyes. He stood directly in front of you, no more than five feet, now. He stood tall and erect at first, but bent his knees to become eye-level to you.
"Wh-What the hell a-" he placed his bony, pale hand over your mouth. You couldn't move. You were paralyzed by pain and fear. And this thing seemed pleased by that. Where his mouth should be, it began to rip, and seep a fluid...a fluid much like tar. it dripped to the ground, melting through the grass and plants. It looked worse that anything you had ever seen. It was grotesque and disgusting; resembling tearing flesh with oozing black, infected blood, his mouth approached your body...Was he..smelling you?
He didn't seem to want to hurt you...but he seemed more and more familiar to you. This thing...was he what killed the children...
"You were the man in the street!" You exclaimed through the hand that muffled your voice. He was. This was him. But what what this monster you had labeled "hi

Because nothing seems to stay
Even if you love it, love
It always runs away
Try not to get attached, my dear
Or it will bite you in the rear
Don't you care too much, or else
It all will fall apart, it melts
Don't get sentimental, darling
For I fear it will soon fade
Instead, be strong, move on, don't stay
