BOB: THE MAGGOT-EATING HORSE-WHISPERING MAN By Alexander Salas
Bob: The Maggot-Eating Horse-Whispering Man
Bob whispered in Goldilocks’ ear while pointing down at his dead neighbor Franklin. Goldilocks neighed heartily. Bob eviscerated Franklin. They waited. Maggots formed.
Bending over, Bob scooped a handful of the pasty grub and swallowed them live. The horse laughed, then dove snout first and snagged Franklin’s life-less heart. She chewed. Bob giggled and ate more maggots… Goldilocks ate the stomach… Bob ate more maggots… Goldilocks ate the liver… Bob ate more…
Both man and horse enjoyed their meal. Flies buzzed their heads. They paid no attention. Eating the moving larva, Bob smiled with every bite. Goldilocks consumed the innards like a bear at dinner time.
“Oh my God. What have you done to my Franklin?” Betsy cried.
Goldilocks and Bob looked up at Franklin’s wife. The horse flicked out its tongue and licked blood from its lips. Betsy ran.
Bob whispered in Goldilocks’ ear.
Goldilocks raced after Betsy overtaking her with ease. Betsy stopped. Goldilocks kicked her in the temple dropping Betsy like a boneless body. Bob strolled over with his scalpel.
