The Litter

by Kevin R. Doyle


GENRE:  Horror



They kept to the shadows so no one would know they existed, and preyed on the nameless who no one would miss. Where did they come from, and who was protecting them? In a city that had seen every kind of savagery, they were something new, something more than murderous. And one woman, who had thought she had lost everything there was to lose in life, would soon find that nothing could possibly prepare her for what would come when she entered their world.



While they’d been talking, Woodson had done his best to keep his eye on Allen and the woman. No easy task, seeing as how the after work crowd was starting to really pour in.

“I was supposed to take Maggie out tonight,” he said. “Got the sitter lined up and everything. You know how difficult it is to get a kid in this day and age who wants to babysit? Especially for what I can afford to pay?”

“You should have married another reporter, Woodson. That way, you both would be so busy you wouldn’t even think of trying to find time to spend together.”

“Maybe so, boss. So what’s this other job you’ve got for me?”

“It’s a death,” his news director said.

“A murder?”

“Not as far as we know. Just a death, though kind of out of the ordinary. Happened last night down in the Zone. We’ve been hearing rumors about the goings on down there, remember? I’d like you to . . .”

“Wait a minute, Barb.”

The atmosphere around the subjects of his surveillance seemed to have changed somewhat. Up to now, they’d been fairly restrained in their body language toward each other, but in the last few seconds that had all gone out the window. The girl had practically slammed herself back in her chair, putting as many inches as she could between herself and the chief.

Even through all the smoke and activity between them, he could see the woman shake her head in a vehement “no.”

“Come on, boss,” he continued. “You really want me to go check out some old wino who keeled over from exposure?”

“The operative word in your statement there was ‘boss.’ How about we remember that for a while?”

“If you say so,” Woodson acquiesced, puzzled because Barb Redland rarely pulled out that particular card with her staff. “But what’s so special about somebody dying down in the Zone? It must happen at least a couple of times a week, if not a day. And that’s just the ones we hear about.”

“True,” she said, “but it seems to be going on a little more frequently lately.”

“Is this that gang stuff you were talking about before? You think some gangbangers are going around offing old guys?”

“I don’t think anything yet,” Redland said. “And the cops sure as hell aren’t talking. That’s why we need to check it out.”

“Okay,” Woodson said, disengaging the call at the same instant that the woman stood up and, just like in the movies, threw the remains of her drink straight into Allen’s face.

Damn, Woodson thought. Maybe it was just a dalliance after all.

That sure seemed like the action of a woman scorned.
