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.

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 ...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

DarkSide Consulting: This was the first book I have read on the Inkitt app so far. It had me hooked from the start. I loved the first person dialogs and how the Creepypasta Characters fit perfectly in their scenes and how they acted and reacted. Don't worry about the grammar in a story like this because I wouldn't...

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...

C J Lawson: Nicely done. Good story with good characters, as well. I was very entertained by the story line, from beginning to end. I would definitely read more of this author's work.

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

MissMadokaKaname: I was impressed and moved by this work. The characterization and dialog were strong, and really brought everyone in the story to life. Also, the setting was handled in a believable and compelling way. The story captured the complexities and pain of love, and also the harshness of living in such b...

sibyleisley: Right away, I was charmed by the characters in Nothing Between Us. Bella is fun to follow and SO easy to relate to, and Jace is the guy that you could spend 24/7 with and not get sick of him. And together, they're adorable and so right for each other. The writer did such a great job making me car...

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...

AnnaLucia: This fanfiction has an amazing plot. It's very different from the books, yet the author still managed to keep the personalities the characters had in the books. Your Alec and Magnus still are themselves, even though you created a different plot where Bane had to seduce Lightwood to get informati...

RedX9: I would love it if you would show how she is the bottom of the class. A paragraph alone isn't enough to show this.If she was such a screw up, how did she pass and graduate from the class. Are her teachers this lax that they would allow a screw up to graduate?I didn't understand the schooling syst...
