Voices.

One day he grabbed the wet earth and shoved it up in his mouth.

Crunch Crunch Crunch ...
He chuckled at the sound.

One day he coerced the dog to swallow the house keys.
The dog whimpered, yet swallowed.
He chuckled when his father began digging a grave for the dog in their courtyard.

One day he pinched his sleeping grandmother's nose shut.
He held on to it. The old lady first flinched, then shuddered, and then opened her mouth wide, gasping for breath.
He chuckled when the shocked look on her face wouldn't wear off for days.

One day he struck a match and flung it at the cowshed.
The cows moo-ed and people ran with pails of water.
He chuckled when they carried the carcasses out of the shed. 11 scalded blistered remains.

One day he lifted his baby sister carefully, very carefully, and walked over to the well.
He stood on his toes carefully, very carefully.
And tossed the bundle in his hand into the well.
Carefully, very carefully.
He chuckled when he heard the splash and a muffled cry.



They always told him to do so. The voices.

19 cows believe I'm awesome. Do you?:
