The Dead of Night
by Dean Kuch


My daughter won't stop screaming or crying. I've done everything I can think of—everything I observed my wife doing before she decided to walk out on us.


It always worked for her.


She's constantly awakening me in the dead of night. I'm a security guard over at Macum's Mill—on the morning shift.


I gotta get some sleep.


I know what you're thinking. Hire some help so I get some much needed rest, right? How much money do you think I pull in a week?


I visited my daughter's grave today to ask her to stop.


It didn't help.

Poor kiddie. She really didn't stand a... ghost of a chance in life. I guess daddy needed a little closure himself. He certainly seemed to be losing a lot of sleep over it.
It's true what they say about baby boils and ghouls, you know. You can't live with 'em, and you can't kill 'em either. Because they're already dead, heh-heh-heh...

Until next time, fright fans...pleasant screams...
