Earning the Cut: Excerpt
Hungry. That was the first sensation he could recall feeling. He was always hungry. Even when his stomach was full of whatever crap happened to be lying around after they were through, he was still hungry. As if he were a dog, they only threw him the scraps. He was a half-starved afterthought. Just something to be tolerated. Even though he was young, he was old enough to understand that he was meaningless to them. Opening the fridge revealed a half-eaten pizza. He gnawed at it. It was cold and it tasted funny. His tummy gurgled a familiar warning so he stopped eating. Sometimes the stomachache that followed eating the funny food was worse than the hunger pains. Tired, he slumped down on the couch to wait for Mommy.
Laughter met his ears but it wasn’t funny. The room spun around and around. It wasn’t like when you twirled in circles. It was worse than that time on the merry-go-round. But, the dizziness passed once they got off the ride. This was much worse. The bad feeling wouldn’t go away. He felt sick, oh so sick. He threw up on the old brown couch. Mommy was there. He thought she would be mad at him, but to his surprise, she was mad at the man instead. She yelled and he covered his ears. It was hard to tell if she was mad at him, too. She was always mad.
“You gave him beer? He’s only six!”
The man laughed again.
“That’s the last time I leave you alone with him, Trey!”
