Unholy Trinity: Party by Martin P. Fuller

Our church worships at the altar of the Unholy Trinity. Its gospels are delivered as a trio of dark drabbles, linked so that Three become One. All hail the power of the Three.

This little collection of drabbles is in part a nod from Martin to my recent move. He knows me so well – including my music tastes!  – Steph

Party, Party

Their move complete. Boxes emptied. Furniture unloaded. A new life in the town of Wrexham.
The husband relived at relocation success, decided on celebration. Beer, food, wine and loud, raucous music. After all, their nearest neighbours were firmly planted in the nearby churches cemetery.

The walls trembled to Metallica. Party-goers danced wildly. It was just after midnight a heavy knock at the door deadened festivities.

On the doorstep stood a rotting corpse, mouldering green skin and white bone. Grating words fell out of its mouth along with rampant worms.

“Please turn down the music. It’s enough to wake the dead.”

A Moving Story

She regarded her old house fondly, ghosts of happy times haunting every room. But time passes and her new house in Wrexham beckoned. The removal men had finished loading the large Victorian display case, minus its contents of course. She’d packed those treasures separately, and discreetly. 

She’d worried the new owners of her house may find the bodies under the rockery, but they were elderly;  happy to leave the garden intact. She would always have the collection of desiccated heads however, their smiles lighting up her new house. A collection she would add to, after she built a new rockery.

Welcome to Wrexham

Jasper Bottomley was determined to pay his respects to the new family now in residence at the house by the churchyard. The hour was late, true, but he would not tarry. A cordial introduction and a welcome to Wrexham. He mayhap be able to learn of news form the rest of the country and how parliament fared in the war before returning home his obligations complete.

It occurred to him as he clawed his way to the surface he might invite them to his abode if they were decent God-fearing people. After all, truly decent company was hard to find.
