Simon…a short story

Horror, Book, Woman, Girl, Reading

Simon stayed up late
reading horror stories
and was too afraid
to go to bed
his mother told him
he was just a cut-out
and the worst thing
that could happen to him
was to get wrinkled
or thrown away
Simon asked
if that’s what happened
to his dog Spot
and his mother said
Spot was living on a farm
in Wisconsin
with all the other paper dogs

  1. Your short story packs a punch. It is quite intriguing and a little unsettling. That mother scares me somehow. 🙂 Well done.

  2. Uh huh…sure, Mom…

  3. Hahahahaha!
