LITTLE DARLINGS

"You have to do something about those windows."

"Why, what happened?"

"The kids are drawn to them, they love watching the activity!"

"What's wrong with that?"

"People do look up you know. What if someone notices?"

"Good point. I'll get that window covering that allows the kids to look out but blocks the interior view."

"Wonderful. Thanks dear."

"What's on the restaurant's menu tonight?"

"Tonight the Soul Fusion Gourmet is offering Braised Doug, Fricasseed Joy, and Roasted Alistair."

"My favorites, such darlings, I'll miss them!"

"I know dear, but they kept trying to post Help Me signs in the window!"

100 words

FYI:

Fusion is a style of cooking that draws on elements from European and Asian cuisines; generally, the application of Asian preparation techniques to European or American ingredients; also known as East meets West.

In this case, it's East meets West meets cannibalism!

Following the advice of Stephen King, who recommends we kill our 'Darlings.' Sorry, bad pun, but I couldn't resist!

  4. Dear Yolanda Renee,

    Not sure about that menu. You have taken 'killing your darlings' to a new level.

    Shalom,

    1. Hi Susan, yeah it's all due to a sick mind, I think someone dropped me on it at a very young age. At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
      Luv you too lady!

  16. Great story, and especially clever of you to come up with it with just a window pic for a prompt! One of my short stories has a cannibal in it -- and my new WIP, too. I guess the subject interests me... Have a great weekend!

    1. Hi Lexa, how odd, but for some reason the mind went there. Does make you wonder, what with zombies all over the place.
