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.

  1. I rarely leave a response, however i did a few searching and wound up here Man-boy – Psychopomp Press.
    And I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.
    Could it be just me or does it look like some of the responses appear as if they
    are left by brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are
    posting on other social sites, I’d like to follow everything fresh you have to post.
    Could you make a list of every one of your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed,
    or linkedin profile?

  2. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog
    that’s both equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you’ve hit
    the nail on the head. The issue is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I found this during my hunt for something relating to this.

  3. First off I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t
    mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and
    clear your mind prior to writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Many thanks!

  4. Thank you for some other fantastic article.
    The place else may just anyone get that type of info
    in such an ideal manner of writing? I’ve a
    presentation next week, and I’m at the look for such information.

  5. Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after browsing through some of
    the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyways, I’m
    definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!

  6. You’re so interesting! I don’t believe I’ve read anything like this before.

    So good to find another person with a few original
    thoughts on this subject matter. Seriously.. thank you for starting this up.
    This website is something that’s needed on the internet, someone with a little originality!

  7. Throughout the great design of things you actually receive an A+ just for hard work. Where you actually misplaced us was on all the specifics. As people say, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn’t be much more accurate right here. Having said that, allow me reveal to you what exactly did give good results. Your writing is actually quite persuasive and this is most likely why I am making an effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, while I can see a jumps in reasoning you make, I am not really sure of just how you seem to connect your ideas which produce your conclusion. For right now I will, no doubt yield to your issue however wish in the future you actually link your facts better.

  8. Wow! This could be one particular of the most beneficial blogs We’ve ever arrive across on this subject. Actually Wonderful. I am also an expert in this topic so I can understand your hard work.

  9. Hey There. I found your weblog the use of msn. That is a really
    well written article. I will be sure to bookmark it and return to learn more of your
    helpful info. Thank you for the post. I’ll definitely comeback.

  10. Hi there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to
    manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted
    to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
