The Aftermath

-­‐ 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

in.

“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

know who you can call. Dougie quit cutting your

sister’s hair!”

Barbie knows immediately whom Skipper is talking

about. She takes a smoke from Skipper’s pack.

“It’s been a long time. Do you really think he would

come?”

“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

kitchen?

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

you ready?”

“Let’s do this.”
