Copy and Paste

Denise’s Six Sentence Story prompt – Paste

When his mother died, he didn’t know what to feel, grief or relief. A life of luxury, adventure and parties, endless parties with high end booze and drugs, now no more. Part of him felt lost, part of him felt liberated, from all the powerful, wealthy and filthy men, there was also this remaining part felt angry which was suppressed by numbness.

How do you suppose to feel that the woman who raised you was also the pimp, died before you could get an answer out of her, why did she hate you so much to do unspeakable things to you from a young age. The mother and son relationship was emotionless, copy and paste, repeatedly being showered with affections then thrown into another perpetrator’s den to endure the rejection.

His mother died, and his breakdown and healing have just begun.

  1. It’s hard to believe only six sentences can create such a deep and vivid and disturbing world. This tale is incredibly intense. Each word and each sentence packs a punch. It’s so dark, too, but there’s perhaps hope in the end. Amazing writing, Cassa! 🙂

  2. A powerful no punches pulled tale, Cassa. Is it all the more obscene because it takes place in high society? Rather than say a poor, working class setting? The survivor, whatever his class, still has to bear the same tragedy and pain.


      1. Hi Cassa. I just read the outline of that true story you linked, and it’s so harrowing. I felt sorry for the brother who tried to keep the horrible truth secret from his twin to protect him and also because he was so traumatised himself. It’s good that the truth finally came out (for both of them), and good you were inspired to write your micro story about what happened.

      2. That documentary stuck with me because it’s a different type of evil all together. Similar to what you said in the earlier commment, regardless which part of the the society, crime, trauma and pain are not prejudice.

  3. Ya gotta admit, the darkside of human nature makes the demons and devils of old fairy tales and myths look positively innocuous and innocent.
    powerful story-telling.
