Fresh Meat

By Susan O'Reilly All Rights Reserved ©

Other / Horror

Chapter 1

A brand new slab of fresh meat. It took a lot of time and energy getting it here and deserves my full attention to make it perfect, or at least tastier than last time. I've acquired a hook to hang the meat don't know exactly what this is for, I've heard the term curing. It reminds me of healing but there ain't no doctor that can heal this creature. As I hang it a pool of blood begins to form and congeal at my feet, messy business this. I whistle for Rover who needs no instruction and immediately starts salivating and lapping, one job taken care of.

Blast, the bloody doorbell, throw on a pair of overalls and lock the door of the shed. My catch and Rover away from prying eyes. Using my peep-hole I see its my mother, interfering bitch always seems to know when I'm enjoying myself. She must have her own peep-hole into my brain I wouldn't want to see into hers there would be nothing to hold my interest. I supply the expected tea and biscuit and the small talk. After my usual non-committing shrugs, resistance is futile, I have yet another date I grudgingly admire her persistence. She leaves happy in the knowledge that this one could be the one, maybe one day she'll pick the right sex.

A quick wash and back to the shed Rover licking his lips. I shoo him outside and close the door. I need privacy for this bit. I'm a lot more prepared than last time. I run my hand over the meat a bit bristly in places, I grab my razor and carefully shave, ah yes lovely and smooth. Next I grab the oil and rub it all over, I can't wait any longer remove my overalls and add my own special juice to the mix, it's the only relief I get these days.

I am now disgusted with myself and the meat, it must be disposed of. I dress and let Rover back in he will do some of the work for me. Now for the rest of the prep, a nice bottle of red I think. I boiled the meat last time a wee bit salty and dry for my taste, I went for younger prey this time hopefully it will be more tender. Rover doesn't really go for stir-fry so I think some steak will go down well. I did a big shop last week as I am expecting not to need meat for a while. I told the nosy girl at the till that my new girlfriend was vegetarian and I was giving it a go. Onions chopped, spuds peeled, time to go get the meat.

Rovers busy chewing a finger he likes the bony bits. I have acquired a cleaver it does a much cleaner job, speaking of jobs maybe I'll become a butcher. I'm getting the hands on experience.

**************************************************

Turning the meat in the pan, Rover waiting expectantly at my feet, I think we'll have it rare.

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

ryder: This is an excellent read. From beginning to end the author showed his creative and imaginative writing skills. Twists and turns, surprises, humor, and sorrow: This book has it all. I strongly recommend this book, and I am already recommending it to my friends.

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

Kayresia A. Bass: Loved it. Author did some insane research to bring this story to life. A little short for my taste, but an awesome story nonetheless. A few missing periods, and a few missing ending quotation marks, but not enough to take away from the story.Keep going. Add more detail to your future stories and ...

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing. I think I'd like to see you do a little more with the main characte...

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

Deidre L. Swain: I understood where the story was going but the writing skills were lacking a lot. There are some places that had no flow. The plot was good which is what kept me reading the whole story. I think the author shows promise. They just need to tighten up on their skills to really get it going

mrh: This interesting take on the Harry Potter series fascinated me from line one on. I am in love with this tale and its characters and cannot wait to read the next chapter. I look forward to more soon.When can I expect the next chapter? I am so excited to read it!
