My Stepson Jordy, a Swell Little Boy

By KaylaG All Rights Reserved ©

Horror

I.

Jordy's mother left him when he was just a baby. Maybe she knew. Maybe he bit her breast too hard. Maybe he laughed when she cried. Who knows. For whatever reason, she left.

Jordy's daddy lasted longer. Married me. Introduced me to his little blue eyed boy, little charming handsome fellow. I was smitten. I was stupid. I didn't know.

Jordy is an angel.

His father left us right after the honeymoon. Middle of the night, he packed his bags and skipped town. No note, nothing. Just took off. No one knows where he went. No one knows where he is. He didn't know what else he was leaving behind, never got to see my belly swell. I suppose it's just as well. Jordy is 8 years old. I'm all the kid's got. Just like his father planned it.

Jordy is real curious about the baby growing in my belly. Says he'd like to see it. Says he'd like to open me up and take a look. I believe he would. I've started locking my bedroom door at night.

Everyone says Jordy is a swell little boy. He likes birds, they say. He loves animals. He does; he likes to take off their heads, see what's inside. He likes the feeling of their blood on his hands, likes to wipe it on his clothes and make me wash them.

Jordy is artistic. His material of choice is a knife and whatever small living creature happens to be near by. The neighbour's cat was a masterpiece. He cried when I made him clean it up.

He's a natural born leader, Jordy is. It takes a great deal of leadership ability to persuade four other children to jump from a third story window and then lie about it. What a miracle it is that they lived. What a miracle no permanent damage was done, this time around.

What horrible things have you done, Jordy? What horrible things will you do?

I've thought about leaving; of course I have. But if I abandon this child, will they say I am not fit to parent another? What will become of my unborn child if I leave? What will become of her if I don't?

No one will believe me about Jordy. I’ve tried to tell them, but they just don’t see. He’s such a charming child. He knows exactly how to work a crowd, win people over.

Like I said, Jordy is an angel.

But so was Lucifer.

AudreyInAshes: I think this book is a really great modern-age thriller. The idea of the drug and its symptoms were explained generously, and while I did really enjoy this I just want to add that there is some mild gore and the killing of a pet (sorry to spoil, but I like to be prepared.) It is very interesting,...
