Up until the age of sixteen, I shared a bedroom with my parents. Every night I would hear my contemptible father in the darkness, rutting with my prostitute mother (or with another painted whore if she was out fellating in an alley).

I smelled the fetid sex sounds, the malodorous swear words and the corpulent carnal eruptions. I saw the hot cherry glows of post-coital cigarettes. And I heard my heart remind me about the dressmaker’s 10” scissors that I kept under my pillow.

My dear heart continued to be heard after I’d concluded with some lively stabbing exertions.

    "I smelled the fetid sex sounds... the corpulent carnal eruptions" is so disgustingly descriptive, I'm there in the room :) Another superb drabble Horrorshow.

    I look forward to reading your comments sir. On an unrelated point, has Mr Sutton taken a sabbatical or what? He is missed!

    Brandon is definitely missed yes. I posted on his last drabble (that he posted a couple of months ago) about four weeks ago, asking if he was okay. I'm not a facebook user (I like to use twitter) but Brandon's facebook address is mentioned on his profile page. Someone should drop him a line and say hi! :-)

    Another great example of "show, don't tell." I pictured a dirty little room that was dark and dirty all the time.
