Man-boy

[Man-boy, 626 words, Genre: Mind Fudge]

She was seventy years old. She almost had a heart attack when the child protection agents came to her house. They stood at the door and rang the doorbell. She had to think quickly, on her feet, though she was not as quick of mind as she used to be, nor as nimble on her feet. But she quickly went to her baby’s room. There, sitting in front of the computer was her fifty year old baby boy. “Harold! They’ve come for you. They’ve come for you Harold!”

Harold had quickly turned off the live streaming pornography that he had been looking at on the computer when he heard the sounds of his mother’s footsteps approaching. “Marm! Who’s come for me, marm?”

“Them, Harold! The child protection people. I’ll tell them one thing, they’re not going to get my baby.” Harold’s mother quickly pulled a blanket out of the linen closet and placed it over Harold. Covering him from head to toe so that he couldn’t be seen.

Then Harold’s mother went to answer the door. She opened the door. There stood two child protection service agents. One, a large burly man, and the other a younger woman in her thirties. “Hello.” Harold’s mother greeted the two agents.

“Uhh… Hello Mrs. Smith.”

“It’s Miss actually.” The seventy year old woman made eyes with the large burly man. Flirtatiously gazing into his eyes.

“Right…” He replied, “We have reports that there is a child under your care.”

“I see and is there a problem with that?” Mrs. Smith asked defensively.

“Well, yes, actually.” It was the younger female, “You’re far too old to have a child in your care. You require care yourself. We’re here to help you with that.”

“I’m quite capable of looking after myself,” Mrs. Smith replied.

“Can we come in Mrs. Smith?” the large burly man asked.

“I don’t see why not. You won’t find anything.”

“We’ll just see about that,” replied the young woman.

From down the corridors of the house came the squealing of her fifty year old baby boy, “Marm!” He cried out, “Marm!” The two child protection officers followed the sound of Harold’s voice down the corridors.

“It’s just the radio, that’s it, it’s just the radio,” Mrs. Smith attempted to explain.

The two agents continued to walk down the corridor until they came to Harold’s bedroom. They opened up the door to the room. There, sitting at a desk, underneath a blanket. Calling out, “Marm!” And again, “Marm!”

“I wonder where he could be?” The large burly man asked sarcastically, looking at the fifty year old man sitting underneath the blanket that his mother had draped over him.

The thirty year old woman pulled the blanket off of Harold, like a magician’s trick, “Voila!”

“Marm! Are these the bad people?” Harold questioned indignantly.

Mrs. Smith then went to grab a hold of her son. To hug him one more time before they took him away. “Don’t take my baby away! Don’t take my baby away!”

The female officer held back Mrs. Smith. The large burly man took Harold by the hand and said, “Would you like to come with me son?” Harold nodded, signalling that he wanted to. The large burly man led Harold out to the car that was parked outside. Harold got in the car and the female agent, who had been holding Mrs. Smith back, quickly ran into to the car and got in the front passenger seat.

“My boy!” Mrs. Smith called out.

As Mrs. Smith cried out. Harold, the fifty year old man, sat in the back seat of the car and waved goodbye to his mother with a tear forming in his eye.

Mrs. Smith fell to her knees and began crying.

  2. I hardly comment, however I read a few of the responses on this page Man-boy – Psychopomp Press.
    I do have a few questions for you if it’s okay. Is it only me or do a few of the comments look like
    they are left by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are posting at other online social sites, I would like to follow you.

    Could you post a list of all of your social community
    pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  3. Admiring the persistence you put into your blog and detailed information you provide.
    It’s awesome to come across a blog every once

  5. Wonderful blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost
    on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any tips? Bless you!

    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well,
    almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you
    had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

  8. No matter if some one searches for his necessary thing, thus he/she wishes to be available that in detail,
    therefore that thing is maintained over here.

  9. Greetings! Quick question that’s totally off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing

    correct this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Cheers!

    I want to read even more things about it!

  11. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult
    to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and appearance.
    I must say you have done a superb job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Internet explorer.

    Exceptional Blog!

  12. Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having
    a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Thanks so much and I am having a look forward to contact you.
