Today's Word: Egg
Willa laid an egg. It was black and it wiggled. She watched it break, horror petting her mind like a kind master. A babe lay there. A boy. His hair and eyes were black as the egg's shell; his teeth large and brilliant white.
"You've been a bad mommy," said the boy.
The egg boy jumped from his crib to stand naked and slimy before his horrified mother.
"Name me punishment," said the boy, "for I am yours."
Willa fainted away.
