-‐ Short Story Series by DeAnna Majors
Barbie sits at the table. Ken’s lifeless body still
remains. Barbie snaps out of her reverie when she
hears the chirp of the doorbell. It’s Skipper.
“What the fuck, Barbie”, she asks. A cigarette dangles
from her lips, as a toddler clings to her legs. Behind
her, five more small children fight, fuss, and whine.
“I said stop it dammit”, she exclaims.
Barbie opens the door a little wider to let the brood
“I just couldn’t do it anymore, Skip.”
“I told you from the beginning that he was just a big
douche bag. No one ever listens to Skipper though. If
there was a Ph. D. in picking shitty men you know I’d
have one from an Ivy League, sis.”
They walk into the kitchen. Barbie sighs heavily as
Skipper nudges Ken’s foot with the toe of her super
slutty high heel shoe.
“Well you certainly did a number on him. Hey, I

Barbie knows immediately whom Skipper is talking

“It’s been a long time. Do you really think he would
“Girl, that boy loves you like a fat kid loves cake. Of
course he’ll come.”
Skipper stamps out her cigarette into Ken’s palm.
“I’ll make the call,” Skipper says as she retrieves the
older kids and makes to work rolling Ken’s body up
in one of the pretty, pink rugs.
“No. I’ll call him.” Barbie scrunches up her pretty,
plastic nose as she reaches for her phone. Barbie’s
world is about to get a whole lot dirtier.
Barbie scrubs at the walls and floors where Ken’s
body bled out. The door bells chirps again.
“Hey, Skip? Could you get that,” Barbie yells from the
After a few moments she senses a presence in the
room. She looks up. Her breath catches in her throat.
“Well...I...I...,” Barbie stammers. “So, how was it...?”
“So how’s...,” Duke interrupts her. “Yeah.”
Convicted of war crimes, the leader of the infamous
mercenary group, G.I. Joe, has been in prison for the
last five years. Barbie met Ken while he was in lock
up, and she never looked back. Little did Barbie
know, she had picked the greater of two evils.
Barbie, Skipper, and Duke sit in Barbie’s, once again,
clean, perfect, pretty, plastic kitchen. Barbie and
Duke pretender to not notice, well, each other
noticing the other. Skipper chain-‐smokes.
“Bastard had what was coming to him.”
“It’s not pretty on the inside, Barbie,” Duke looks at
Barbie with concern.
“I guess it’s settled then.”
Barbie is going on the run.
It’s early. Barbie sits at the table. She glances around
at her perfect Malibu dream house. Tears run down
her pretty plastic face.
Duke clears his throat as he enters the kitchen. “Are
