"The Quiet One" by Mike Pihlman

"The Quiet One" by Mike Pihlman

Genre: Horror

Phil was always the quiet one.  When he was a kid, his Mom always told people he was smart as a whip, but, he never said a word.

After Phil grew up, graduated from a prestigious university and went to work…he was still the quiet one.

Taking Phil’s quietness for meekness, Boss relentlessly battered Phil.  He battered Phil at raise time, he battered Phil at meetings, he battered Phil behind his back, he battered Phil in the cafeteria.

Phil said nothing.

One day, Boss came to the office early.  Lots of work to do, very little time to do it.  If he only knew.

The bat hit Boss square on the head.  His skull cracked and brain matter flew out.

Boss had been severely battered.

Mom always told Boss that it was the quiet ones you had to watch out for.

He didn’t listen.
