The Minimalist #3

The Cuckoo Kid

Michael held his wife’s hand as she struggled through her labor. They were expecting a set of healthy, if heavy, twins. What they did not expect was a surprise triplet. Michael didn’t understand how such a thing was possible, or how no one seemed to notice that the third child didn’t look human at all. And when the surprise triplet started pushing his brothers out of their cribs at night with his freakishly overdeveloped legs, Michael just about lost in mind. He was arrested for child endangerment when they found him strangling the triplet. Now, he spends his nights in jail wondering if his actual twin sons are safe from the Cuckoo Kid.
