May 2006 Winner
HORRORS!
by H. Henry Minick

     Homer Frank did not move from his slump against the door, not even when I showed him my press credential.. His face never changed and I saw a dull look in his eyes, as though his mind was lost in another dimension. "Hello, Homer. My name is Don Blast from OKIE TV. I came down here to Dangville to interview you. We have learned that you have information regarding Molly's death. Can we interview you?" "Yup." "When did you last see Molly?" " I seen her about six last night," Homer said in his deep hillbilly drawl. "Where was that?" "In the hay barn." "Who killed her?" "I don't rightly know. Seems to me it was the farmer.." "Were you present when she was killed?" "Yup." Don Blast turned his head away, winked at his cameraman, and continued. "Won't you tell us in your own words what happened?" "Wull, I seen the boss with a sledge hammer, an' he whopped her on the haid, an she flopped over on her side an' he slit her throat." "What did you do?" "I got the forklift, took it to him, and hoisted her high." "What do you think will happen now?" "Well, I guess we're gonna have some fresh beef steaks for dinner." Homer shifted his weight, got to his feet saying, "gotta go milk now," and he walked away..
