Yadda, yadda, yadda. You know the drill. Weekly Challenge here. Vote for my story, read the other entries. Listen to the audio production below, or this link if the player’s borked like in some feed readers. Background tuneage from NiN’s CC-licensed album The Slip. I hope you enjoy it!

It’s not my fault. I didn’t do my schoolwork because Tommy McDonald kept flicking my neck with his pencil. Then the teacher yelled at me when I told him to stop.

And I didn’t put the monster in my closet.

I crawled into bed next to Mom. She didn’t wake up until Dad started yelling again. He said I was too old to be scared of monsters, and smacked me around for crying.

Mom didn’t say anything. She didn’t stop him.

Before I left their room, their closet door opened. A big fanged mouth smiled at me.

I smiled back.
