Recipe for a battered wife...



This is dark.

Dark and ugly.

And it was soooo fun to write.

However.  I cut and cut and cut (pun intended) and I am still officially over the word count.  Please consider this my IOU for 35 words.  I promise I will deduct them from next weeks SC!

Prompt is in bold.

PS.   Sorry in advance if you have a squeamish stomach today.  Mwahahahahahahahahahaha!  And sorry for the weird spacing on this.   I can't seem to fix it in blogger today.



"Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat,” I sing-songed.

“Your food tastes like swill!  Why isn’t the laundry done?  What the hell is wrong with you? Crack-Crunch-Smack!”

“Wait until the butter is sizzling hot,” I cautioned myself.

“You are so fat and ugly! WTF is wrong with you? No-one else will ever love you!  Crack-Crunch-Smack!”

“Make sure the knife is sharp,” I reminded myself.

“You are just a stupidstupidstupiduglyfatbitch! Why aren’t my shirts ironed?  This house is disgusting!   Crack-Crunch-Smack!”

I turned from the lovely, bubbly fragrance on the stove.

My kitchen was spotless.

My apron was freshly laundered and ironed.

I heard my knife crack-crunch-smack through the bones of his femur.

“Yeah.  I told you if you ever laid a hand on me again you were going to pay!”

I chuckled to myself and turned his corpse to begin the butchering.

This is marvelous. I have a bit of the macabre in me. At first, I thought you were cutting up a chicken, then realized it was the real deal xy abuser.

Jen, I feel awful, I just fat-fingered the wonderful comment you left on my "Butter or Oil" post and deleted it. It was so special, and I erased it by mistake. Argh!

Thanks for the great comment. Too bad no one else will see it.

Serves him right! I am immune to dark and ugly. I watch CSI, SVU and Criminal Minds!

I feel like such a weirdo because I write dark stuff all the time. I was born on the day that Psycho was released in 1960. Perhaps that has something to do with it. I've had so much trouble finding other writers of the macabre. I found this piece good, gruesome fun.

Ah Miss Jenny, when you exercise your dark side you do it very well!

Viki said...

Gattina said...

and I hope you dug a deep whole in your yard to bury the pieces ! Or maybe not so deep, would be a waste for dog food !
