One day a young man named Jack is asked by his mom to get some liver from the butchers. Johnny accepts and heads off down the road to the butchers. On his way to the butchers he has to go past his favorite shop the candy store. The store has a special “all the suckers you want for $5.00 “. Jack has only $5.00. He wonders if he should get the suckers or the liver. Of course he decides to get the suckers without a second thought about his mom.
After he spent his mom’s money he remembers the liver. Jack wonders how he is going to tell his mom. Across the street a funeral service is finishing at the cemetery across the road, Jack walks over to the fresh grave and finds a stick “c’mon Jack you can do this” he tells himself. He opens the casket and shoves the stick in the dead body and rips open its stomach and takes out the liver and runs away as quickly as possible. When he gets home he gives his mom the liver and tells her he is sick and that he would go to bed now. He drifts off and is later awoken by his mom saying that dinner was ready and to come in the living room, he said that he was too sick to eat but thanks anyway. He went back to sleep.
Later that night Jack hears a noise from, someone talking from far away. “Jack I want my liver back”. Jack thinks he’s imagining things so he just ignores it and goes back to bed. Later he hears a noise and then “Jack I want my liver back, I’m standing on your lawn”. This time Jack freaks, as you can imagine, and he yells to his mom to help, but no one comes. Jack hears the voice again “Jack I want my liver back, I’m outside your door”. Now Jack is really scared. He runs into the closet and blocks the door with his dresser. “Jack I want my liver back, I’m INSIDE!!!” Johnny is freaking out he is really scared. He hears someone walking down stairs. Downstairs the kitchen he hears a drawer open. He hears the voice again, “Jack I want my liver back, I’m coming up the stairs”. He holds his breathe and dares not make a sound. “Jack I want my liver back, I’m outside your room”. Jack holds back a scream. The noise comes closer, he hears heavy footsteps walking slowly towards him thump…thump…..thump….thump…..thump…thump, and then silence, not a sound, the whole world is quiet for this moment.
Jack hears the heavy breathing outside the closet door. “Oh god, oh god please help me I will never be selfish again I swear if you get me out of this I don’t wannna die I don’t wanna die!!!” he pleads to no one. He hears his dresser being moved aside from his closet. The door flings open. “Jack I want my liver back”. Jack screams.
Neighbors hear his screams, when they come running they find his body dead on his bed and his moms body dead in her room. An autopsy revealed his liver had been removed.
