The Family Tree

The tree’s ancient limbs branch out like roads to several different worlds.

It is, in a way, a birthright… the way to the promised place.

“You found them yet?” I’d ask Mutt every day.

My brother would shake his head, gangrenous tongue hanging from his mangled jaw.

Then he’d crawl back up, trying a new route… disappearing within the tree’s barbaric upside-down beard.

“I found it.” Mutt’s perpetually decomposing head sprouts from the tangles. “Ma and Pa were there.”

My turn.

I grab the rope—same one that Ma, Pa and Mutt used– and slip my head into the noose.

HAVE A GREAT 2014 everyone 🙂 I’ve gotten so used to the holidays and I’m having a hard time letting go. lol 🙂

PPS. with the picture, i know how easy it is to mistake Mutt for a dog so i made a couple of edits since posting this story xo 🙂

CONTAMINATED CONCEPTION

She comes home every morning, limping, reeking of sex and decay.

She makes coffee, sits across from me.

We don’t talk about it. Even as gray alien semen dribble down her thighs.

Every night, our women steal from our beds, like moths mesmerized by the phallic tower and its glaring sex light.

I try to ignore the abomination housed in her contaminated womb.

She carries it proudly… like she’s the virgin fucking Mary.

It’s time.

She’s bound to the bed.

I point my rifle at the screaming hole between her thighs and wait for the bastard’s head to come out.

PS because I suck at making story titles, feel free to suggest one. ^^ i hope your Christmas celebration rocked. xo 🙂

Bitter Magic

On his deathbed, father handed me his bow and arrow. “Go hunt yourself a wife.”

I shook my head.

He should’ve married a good village woman.

Instead, he pursued her.

A day after she gave birth to me, she stepped out of her shoes and ran into the forest.

Just like that.

Father said she belonged there, where she can be savage and free in all her hirsute and fiercely fanged glory.

I promised myself I’ll never be like him… ruined by his flirtations with other worlds.

I’ll never dream of magic, love… or she-bears that turn into bad mothers…

Friday Fictioneers: 100 words Story Challenge LXIII

Rivers of mud trickled down Helga’s cheeks breaking up to form filthy rivulets.

Serpent-like vines embraced the old tower like an obsessed lover.
You’d think one would have the sense to stay away.

Still he came… resplendent on his white horse with his unscathed sword.
“Release the princess!,” he demanded.

What princess?
Helga was the one who needed to be saved.

Droplets of his royal blood clung to her chest like a string of rubies… a souvenir from their dance– their macabre waltz of life and death.

Ogres don’t have hearts, Helga knew that.
Still something inside her kept breaking.

oh and before i forget, i just started tweeting. yeah, just now.lol so if you wanna add me up please do, https://twitter.com/kzmorano
