I prefer science fiction, fantasy, and horror without the spaceships, dragons, and zombies.

Clean

 

By Gregor Xane

 

 

On the mantel? No. Them's baby Billy's. Bible says cleanliness is next to godliness. Billy was a dirty boy—wouldn't stop grabbing at his ownself—so I gives him a bath. But that did nothing to get the sin off him. They say sin is in the flesh, so the flesh had to go. But I soon found what's underneath is filthier still. Took me forever to mop up that mess. Lord, everything in that baby was ungodly and stank to high heaven. Everything but them bones. Those, as you see there, clean up pretty good. White as angel wings.
