Crybaby

by Jonathan Hill
Originally published by BookHippo.uk on 29/03/2016

“Stupid, stupid, stupid baby!'

Stacey tried everything to stop the incessant crying. But nothing - NOTHING - would work and the noise just grew louder and louder.

“Shut the hell up. SHUT UP!'

Stacey screamed in its face and shook it, gently at first but soon more vigorously. And then she was holding it by the leg, dangling it, and hitting its head against the floor.

THWACK. THWACK. CRACK.

The next day, Stacey had tears running down her own face as the teacher shouted at her.

“These things are expensive! And you’re meant to treat them like you would a real baby!'
