Real Monsters: Pedophile

14 Oct

Stu hated rainy days. On rainy days the mothers kept their children indoors. The schools didn’t have recess outside. He hated Autumn, too. And Winter. Even when the kids were outside they were bundled. He could hardly catch a glimpse of pink cheeks, let alone a fleshy thigh. That’s why he moved.

He did his research. He chose a city where the average temperature was over 60 degrees year round. There were thirteen parks with playgrounds within walking distance of his apartment. Sixty within a twenty minute drive. He could watch them play for hours every day without drawing attention to himself.
