Unholy Trinity: The Fridge, The Lamp, The Bed

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.

The Fridge

You’re probably wondering why I’m covered in blood and filled with a putrid rotting odor. Well, it’s a bit of a complicated story and I’m short on time. Unless you could save me from that smasher……no response? Eh, I expected as much. People don’t typically talk to me and if they do its weird nonsense.

I lived with Dahmer. I kept his victims cold and fresh. Oh! I can nearly smell the ripe, warm organs! The police came and took me away after he left. Now, I’m stuck here awaiting my fate. I will be dead like my owner’s victims.  


The Lamp

Today I got a new lampshade! The original shade had been nice but this is custom. No more plain-Jane fabric for me. It used to be warm and drippy but it’s all slick, stiff, cold human hide now. I’m pretty sure there are rotting eyeballs glued to the front. Now I just need a smile.

I’ve seen her working and I think I’m going to get one very soon. Her tooth collection has grown. She will get a big reward from the tooth fairy, but we have plans for her! All those beautiful, white, glistening teeth. They will be ours.


The Bed

I don’t know how it could get any worse. I was split down the middle, half a body stuffed into me, filled with lime, then crudely sewed back up. I guess I should back up a bit. I live in a hotel room. I provide rest for people.

Now, I’m in ruin. I can feel that body rotting inside of me. Somehow nobody has noticed. Two people fucked on top of that body this morning and I have fresh linens on now. Who knows how long this will go on before my secret is discovered and I am thrown away
