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.

Subzero Dragon: Wow, this is intense! You cranked up the heat from the word go, and kept me wanting more even when the ending tied everything up so well. I read it all in one sitting, and your strong style doesn't falter one bit throughout. I think I liked this even better than some of the "big" authors' works, ...

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...

FreakyPoet: I found this story well written and extremely cute. I like how the emotional roller coaster, otherwise know as love, was done here. it was very believable that these two characters would deny, agonize, then come to except their feelings the way that they did. I enjoyed it very much, thank you ...

Sandra Leigh: Sadly, the book left me wanting more. There are only 5 chapters and I want more! It is easily as good as The White Queen and The Other Boleyn Girl. I cannot wait for this one to be finished.

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!

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

Animeviewer: It is one of the best stories I've ever read. This story will have you riding a roller coaster of emotions and nearly dying to know what happens next.You will get very attached to the characters and in my case I relate well with some of their very traumatic or emotional experiences, Just Juliet f...

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...
