Everyone knows it’s your Parents : Conspiracy Theory Theme

Mom’s teeth are always falling out. When that happens she puts on her mad face. I’ll tell her it’s okay, my teeth fall out too. That cheers her up. She’ll ask me if any are loose. Sometimes I lie and say yes, because the toothfairy leaves money for a whole TWO candy bars!

Mom helps me get it out. Then we'll wash the blood off and stick it under my pillow.

But I’m not dumb like other kids. I know there’s no toothfairy and that it’s really just your parents.

Because next morning my mommy has a perfect smile again.

A while back I did some drabbles focused on children's fantasy creature things. I never got around to the tooth fairy but I found this laying around and thought it good enough for that slot.

My parents told me Charon took all the teeth to Hades on the tooth ferry...

Pfff...nice. But I'm curious what the God of Death does with them. I challenge you to drabble that.

It's an excellent light/dark ending. Souffle-like, even.

...and that's a darned tempting challenge. If only one had more free time.

Just got back from the dentist myself. So this one found a tender spot in my smile. Nice job.

“This won’t hurt very much. Just lie back and imagine you’re wherever you’d like to be”, said Dr. Charon, as he slipped the mask of Morpheus over my swollen face.
I tried to imagine the beach we washed up on before the scurvy made our teeth fall out.
I tried to imagine feasting on roasted boar once again, drinking flagons of wine, winning the hearts of women.
Too soon, Dr. Charon reappeared before me, and I found myself back in his office before a mirror. My gums were bloody and swollen from the implants: two rows of perfect, tiny teeth.

Whoa...that was...that was amazingly creepy; I'll admit it, no drabble has scared me before now. No time to build atmosphere, I thought. But I'm afraid I was wrong, and that you now owe me a pair of pants. A round of applause, please!

Eheheheh...my teeth hurt...

Dentist stories also have one shoe already in the door when it comes to creeping us out.

or should I say, one drill already in the mouth?
