Just a Big Sweetie.
« on: October 12, 2014, 10:14:55 AM »
Come my little ones and see what Aunty Lilly has cooked up for you this time. It's a tasty stew of shivers and goo that will put you in just the right mood of a ghastly tale of true love.

Marty Tully was a nice, if not a terribly bright, fellow and he had a heart of pure sweetness. Marty Tully was also a chap of his word. When he said he was going to do something you could bet the farm that he would get it done come hell or high water.

Now sweet, not to bright, hard working Marty was a man of his word and he expected that everyone else was too. Most of the time it was true but, as is always the case, there are people out there who will take advantage of the sweet, not to bright ones who live among us. Betty Loomis was just such a girl.
Betty was, and everyone said it was true, the most beautiful girl they had ever seen and Betty knew it too.

And Marty knew it too. No matter the time of day or what he was doing Marty would stop and stare slack jawed and calf eyed whenever Betty Loomis would walk by. He was hypnotized by the sway of her hips and by the way her long blond hair would float like spider silk in the gentle spring breeze. Marty was well and truly struck by the thunderbolt.

Betty wasn't a mean girl she just took it for granted that whatever Betty wanted everyone else wanted it for her too. It was easy, a slight tilt of the head and a wide eyed look with a winsome pouty lip and, like magic, what Betty wanted would appear. And the easiest producer was, you guessed it, Marty

The request started out small enough but, as often happens, they increased in size

"Marty could you carry this for me. You’re so sweet. I could just eat you up"

"Marty would you come to the house and fix the shutter. It bangs ever so when the wind blows."

"Marty my house is so tiny would you be a sweetie and build me a little room on the side."

"I don't know what I'd ever do without you. You're such a sweetie I could just eat you up."

Now this went on for months. Betty kept asking and Marty kept giving. It got to the point where Betty had the nicest prettiest house and yard in all of Custer County. And Marty was living in a rundown shack on the outskirts of town. Because you see, Marty had spent all of his time doing so many "little" things for pretty Betty Loomis he never got around to doing anything for Marty Tully.

Come one cold and frightful winter when the snow was piled so high that you had to dig tunnels just to get out of the house. Marty hadn't heard a peep from Betty and he knew that she needed his help. He knew this because she always called on him to cut and stack her firewood and shovel the snow from her yard. So, being the sweetie that he was, Marty shoveled and plowed and bulled his way to Betty's house to make sure she was okay.

There was no smoke coming from the chimney and Marty got scared. His whole life revolved around her. He couldn't imagine what it would be like if something had happened to her.

He knocked on the door and listened very hard for any sound. After what seemed like a million years he heard a small voice from inside. Marty opened the door and went in. He stepped into that brand new room he had built for pretty Betty and found her there wrapped in what seemed like every blanket in the county. She was so weak she could barely speak.

Marty knew in a moment that Betty was sick and he was going to have to take care of her. Marty knew how to take care of sick people because his mama had gotten sick and he was the one who took care of her until the angels came and took her to heaven.

So he took charge and started a big warm fire and made sure Betty was tucked in nice and safe in all of her blankets. When she was warm and the house was all cleaned up Marty went to the kitchen to cook up a nice hot bowl of soup. Marty's mama had always told him that there was nothing better for a sick person then a nice bowl of hot, steaming soup.

After what seemed like hours Betty heard Mary coming in and she could smell an aroma that, even in her weakened state, made her mouth water. Marty put the tray on the little table and helped her eat what was the best tasting soup she had ever had. All the while Marty said nothing but sat there and smiled down at her.

Once Betty was through she felt so much better but she was a little confused because, you see, she could not remember if she had any meat in the house.

"Marty, sweetie," she asked, " Where did you get the meat for the soup?"

Marty looked down bashfully at his feet and it was at this time she noticed how grey his color was. He was also swaying a little on his feet.

"We'll I tried to find some meat in the icebox but there weren't none, and then I remembered that the most tenderest and sweetest meat is on the back end of the cow so I cut me some rump roast and made you that soup. You liked it right? "

"Yes it was really good, sweetie, but I don't have a cow."

"That's ok" Marty said, "I found me some that I knowed you'd like. "

As he said this he picked up the tray with the dirty dishes and turned toward the door.

As she watched him go Betty noticed again that he wobbled and it was then she noticed with rising horror that Marty seemed to be lopsided and there was a wet red stain running down his pants.

It was then the gorge rose in her throat as she realized where Marty had found the meat for her soup.
After all, for the longest time hadn't she been telling Marty that he was the biggest sweetie and she could just eat him up.?
