horn

The Games He Plays

“Little boy blue, let me blow your horn.” A wicked smiled slashed his face.

“But I don’t have a horn,” the boy in blue responded.

“Sure, you do. Let me show you.” His laugh was maniacal.

He showed the boy his horn. He showed him how to play.

Then he went on his evil way.

    Ha ha ha, thank you so much! It IS disturbing, isn’t it????

      Oh yes. It’s a well-written evil piece :) It’ll be fascinating to see how the votes pan out (not that it influences the final wining, of course!) and why.

        Yea, I’d be curious also. Some people really are repulsed by this topic–with good reason. But as a result, I think it’s hard for some people to read it as fiction. That said, this type of story, to me, is the true face of horror. But I would understand an adverse response to this story. It happens.

          The true face of horror – well said. I’ve read a few variations on this theme in various novels (Gary Jennings comes to mind, who I felt was writing such scenes for fun). My first reaction has been to question the wisdom of writing such scenes… but in this case, to disturb is fair, I feel.

    ooooh! this is really good… so creepy and yes, it reads like nonfiction. Agreed.
