“I guess I would have too.’



Kelvin Williams was locked up with Benny Leonard a paranoid Schizophrenic who had murdered his father and mother with a chopping axe. Benny had waited until they were both asleep and went into their room. The voices in his head told him that his mother and father were of the devil and that God wanted them both dead. He pleaded but the voices said that if he didn’t kill his parents he would be forever cursed and would go to hell. Mary and Simon Leonard were both staunch members of the Church of St Peter in Byker. They had drilled into their only son the word of God since he was old enough to understand. Every night instead of playing out with his friends he had to stop in to do bible reading. Benny never got to go on school trips because they said that being with girls was a sin.

He met a girl called Martha Jones who had walked home from school with him one evening and then kissed him. He couldn’t tell his mother and father about her and he couldn’t tell Martha about his parents. For years they had become very close and when he joined high school at the age of eleven they had continued seeing each other even though Benny’s mother Mary had chased her from the door and told her never to see Benny again. It was when Benny was fifteen that things took a turn because he was at the dinner table when his father started berating him because he had been told that his son was still seeing Martha.’

Benny denied seeing Martha and his mother screamed at him “Judas!  She beat him with a cane and sent him to bed with no supper.

Then Benny started to hear voices in his head; he dismissed them at first then they began to take over his life; they controlled his thoughts and dreams.

He lay in bed in his pyjamas thinking about Martha. They had gone into Jesmond Dene together and were lying on the grass. They were carrying on with buttercups which Martha had used to tease Benny with as he lay with his eyes closed she tickled his ears with the flowers. Benny tried to get her back by chasing her. Martha ran deeper into the Dene and then hid behind an old oak tree. Benny sneaked up behind her and grabbed her from behind. Martha screamed then turned to face him. “You scared me you idiot said Martha.’

“I’m no idiot.’

“Alright keep your hair on said Martha as she toyed with her long black hair which came down her back and settled on her lower back. She was breathing hard and her white blouse had come open and Benny could see her cleavage.’

“What are you looking at said Martha with a giggle?

Nothing said Benny as his face turned crimson.’

Do you want to see them Benny she said as Benny then looked up towards her. She looked around the wood but the place was secluded only the sound of the birds in the trees and the water from a nearby stream could be heard as she leaned against the oak and slowly began to open her blouse.

Benny could feel his heart beat quicken and a stiffness in his trousers.

When all the buttons we open he looked at the flatness of her belly and her navel

She took of the shirt and then slowly undid the clasp on her brassiere Benny was now fully erect and bursting out of his pants as she held up the front of her bra and turned then she turned around slowly to reveal her rounded breasts with two red buds.

Benny stood mesmerised.

“Do you like them Benny she said.

Benny couldn’t speak, he just nodded.
