He spent most of the afternoon carving the arms, legs, and finally the head off his friend. The mess was delightful to him, the satisfaction bigger than he'd hoped.

His mother turned over on the sofa, flicked the TV off and held her head, lifting and shaking the empty can.

“Jack, leave that knife alone. And your toy… That cost good money.'

Jack smiled and laughed, then threw the head at his mother. She laughed and tossed it back to him, then turned back over to resume sleep.

Jack stayed sitting upright, his smile in place for several hours more.
