Horror

Prequel

The sound of rain thudding harshly against the roof and window, I couldn't help stare outside listening to the rumble of the thunder and watch the strikes of thunder. Silently hoping that the bolts would start a fire. The sudden storm had brought in some visitors for us to play with, and it was almost tea time, moving away from the window I approached my closet and opened the door kneeling down in front of the chest inside. As the lid of the chest opened slowly, rising from its position and falling back the hinges squeaked loudly. Reaching inside, I pulled out the bloodstained lacy tablecloth from inside along with a smaller chest containing my tea set. Humming to myself, I headed out of my bedroom heading downstairs, hearing the muffled screams of our visitors from the dining room. Mommy and Daddy were waiting for me, along with my teddies that they had set in their places for me, along with our guests. 

"There is our boy" Mommy announced as I entered the room, carefully setting down the items in my hands down off to the side.

"Well, it is tea time, Mommy," I replied with a twisted tone in my voice as I picked up the tablecloth flinging it out with a light snap, and then draped the cloth across the table. Straightening out the cloth so that it was nice and neat I went back to where I set down the items and opened the case. I started with bloodstained lacy placemats over to the table and put them in place. Next came the bloodstained saucers, cups, and in the middle of the table I sat the teapot, with the table sat I removed the lid allowing mommy to carefully pour the warm liquid from the kettle into the teapot. Mommy took away the kettle, putting it in the kitchen while I began to fill the teacups, Daddy came in dragging in a pretty girl with long amber red hair shoving her into the open seat and restraining her to the chair. When the girl was in place, Daddy took his place at the head of the table, I sat at his side, and when Mommy came back, she sat at his other side. Each of us took our cups and were about to take a drink when a blue and red colors flashed from outside. 

"Fucking cops!"  Daddy swore, placing down his teacup and stood to his feet, "Kenzie you take your mother and go ahead without me. I will catch up as soon as I take care of the pigs." I pouted slightly, upset that the piggies were ruining tea time, but I did as daddy told me, and left the kitchen with my mommy, heading for the back door. 

"Freeze!" The order came as soon as Mommy and I walked out the door, I reached for my pocket to get out my straight razor while Mommy grabbed for her weapon as well, I was ambushed from behind at the same time a shot was fired. 

"Get off of me!" I managed to turn my head and look up as I struggled to get free of the piggie pinning me to the ground trying to wrestle the handcuffs in place. The front of my mommy's shirt started pooling blood and she fell to the ground lifelessly right in front of me. "No!" I screamed in agony, starting to kick at the piggie on top of me, not giving in until they were forced to knock me unconscious.
