Shadow child

Post by Tesseract » Wed Apr 18, 2012 10:42 am

I am the end. A shadow that flits along the ground and eats the dreams of small children. I stare out from under the bed of my soon to be victim. “So Bobby, what do you want to be when you grow up,” the woman asks her child. “I want to be an astronaut,” says Bobby, “No wait, a cowboy.” His voice falters as I begin to feed,” or someone who makes cartoons. A newspaper writer.” Delicious, I finish syphoning as the boy thinks. “A T.V. repair man. I want to be a T.V. repair man.”
Oh goddess, there's a little yellow man following me everywhere I go!
As children flock to their deranged god, his great purple lips flap open. I love you and You love me. We're a happy family.
