Type: speculative fiction
Genres: horror, young adult

A chilling story with echoes of Shirley Jackson and Stephen King.

Merciful Truth and her brother, Gospel, have just pulled their dead mother into the kitchen and stowed her under the table. It was a long illness, and they wanted to bury her — they did — but it’s far too cold outside, and they know they won’t be able to dig into the frozen ground.

The Minister who lives with them, who preaches through his animal form, doesn’t make them feel any better about what they’ve done. Merciful calms her guilty feelings but only until, from the other room, she hears a voice she thought she’d never hear again. It’s her mother’s voice, and it’s singing a lullaby...
