Carnivorous sins

By smname and rsname on February 15, 2004

May lived where the flowers eat small children. Many times May witnessed this horrendous phenomenon, and wept silently. One day the flowers uprooted and went after May's baby.

In a bitter sorrow, May cradled the child. She drove her girl to Mexico where Chihuahuas mangled the corpse. Then May moved away to a pueblo where she wondered if her existence meant nothing, but then she had religion to twist her sense of revenge into self-righteousness.

She took a lawnmower back to her hometown and proselytized to each flower about their carnivorous sins. Then she mowed carnivorously, according to God's will.
