Kid In Closet Essay

1119 words - 4 pages

Wolfgang knew about his father's past. It wasn't talked about much, but when it was, Wolfgang's mouth would perspire saliva and he would swallow it with fear. His past scared him, scared him so much one time while listening a small puddle began to form around his left leg.His father had never hit him or anything. His friends, they all got the belt, slap across the butt. Wolfgang tried to explain to them the stories, but they all thought he had it easy. The stories consisted of a kid, a non descriptive child. Wolfgang guessed it was supposed to be his dad. The stories were of the same idea, of a kid being bad and getting punished for it. But they weren't your butt slapping punishments like all the other kids got. They were kids locked away in basements for the rats to eat, getting sold on the street to dirty men, things to the degree only the grotesque mind could imagine such a horror.But when Wolfgang was really menacing or his dad was drunk he would tell the story of the kid in the closet. The kid in the closet story scared Wolfgang so much he wouldn't dare get near one.The night had fallen and the dealers came out just after dusk, so Wolfgang moved his toys from the corner and walked up the apartment stairs. As his little twelve year old legs climbed the steps, he had to pass the bums that lay cold on the steps with their bottles of liquor. Once to the top of the staircase he passed a late dealer, and headed toward his home.As Wolfgang reached to the door it swung open nearly swiping off his arm. 'What the hell do you think your doing out this late?' It was his father, again in a drunken state. 'Get your ass in here!' he grabbed Wolfgang by the ear and pulled in him.'You know what use to happen to me when I was a kid?' he asked.'Not the closet, please no.' Wolfgang pleaded with him. He didn't want to hear it one more time, or not ever again.' Oh you want to hear about the kid in the closet?' he took time to say it with ease and in such a matter that it scared Wolfgang so much he began to beg.'No, no, please, please don't, anything, whip me like the other boys, anything.' He couldn't hold back the tears.Wolfgang's crying only worsened the scene and his father picked him up by his ear. ' Your going to live it!' he said rather calming, but just loud enough to over power Wolfgang's crying.Wolfgang wiggled and weaved in and out like a worm in his father's hands, but the grip was to strong and before he could get away he was in the closet darkness.The atmosphere caved in on him fast. His crying became whimpers and soon the whimpers became silence. Wolfgang sat and listened. At first there was only the sound of his father's movements, but then the front door opened and closed and he knew he was alone.His little hands patted the rough carpet base of the closet, getting a sense for where things were; he sat back against the wall. With nothing to do and still quite frightened Wolfgang began to play with his hands. Each finger was a different person and...
