The Evil Patient
Once upon a time, there was a very clever girl named Emma Anne Foley (not her real name). Emma was eight years old and could truthfully say that she had never killed an animal, for in truth she was so very clever that she could always get her brother and sisters to do it for her. She got them to do it often because she liked to watch things die.
There was a boy at Emma's school that she just couldn't stand. He teased her and called her weird. Emma did not go to her teacher to complain, nor did she tell her parents, because she preferred to handle situations like this herself. Thus, she hatched a plan. She saved all her allowance money, and sold all her toys on eBay. Then, when Christmas came, she asked for all manner of expensive toys and presents. She sold these online as well and saved all the money she got from it.
When she figured she had enough, she went searching online for someone who could do something very special to the annoying boy in her class and before too long, she was able to find a hit man who could be bought for a very reasonable price. She made contact and set up the hit, and directed that it be carried out in a few months' time, because there was a second part to the plan which would cost more money. She would need more time to save it up.
Save it she did, and she went searching for someone who would be willing to take out the first hit man should he not finish the job. In a situation like this, she reckoned, it was best to leave no witnesses.
Unfortunately, this was where it all fell apart because the second hit man she contacted turned out to be the school resource officer at her very own elementary school. Thus, principals were called, and parents were called, and the police were called, and that was how Emma Anne Foley ended up under guard at the hospital to undergo a psych evaluation. And this was how it was determined that Emma Anne Foley would need a nice, long stay in the psych wing.
But this didn't trouble Emma Anne. As she was being wheeled away, she made sure to give every nurse and doctor a nice -- big -- smile.
I shit you not, this is what my boyfriend had to deal with at work the other night. A creepy, evil child who hired a hit man to take out a classmate and then hired a second hit man to take out the first one should he not succeed. The plan was brilliant, and would have been flawlessly carried out had the second "hit man" not been the school resource officer. That was where it fell apart and how the plan was exposed. That was why the kid ended up in the hospital and that is why the kid is not going to be leaving the hospital for a very long time. The parents were questioned by the doctors and said that their child had always liked watching things die and had always managed to manipulate the other children in the family into killing animals for her amusement. And as she was being carted off to the psych floor, she made sure to give everyone, my boyfriend included, a huge, beaming smile.
Is it just me, or does this story -- which I swear is true -- give one a ferocious case of the creeps?
There's a creature on the lawn whose proportions are all wrong, and it stares at me with far too many eyes...
