Murder on the Menu

By: Artemis Lykaios Nightshade

Page 1, Welcome to our restaurant. What can I serve you today? WARNING!!! VERY bloody and a few mild sexual scenes. YOU have been warned!!!!

Nicholas and Leona ran the finest restaurant in town. With Leona's beauty, the customers come back again and again and with new people, with Nicholas's cooking skills, no one dared to critize the meals, it was all spectacular. But the couple had a secret, it was their meat. If you knew what the "mystery" meat really was, you would flee.

No one knows of this but their children, Ally, Thomas, and Kyler. Thomas, the eldest, goes off hunting for their delectible meat, Kyler, helps his dad cook the meat, and Ally, helps her mother serve it to their customers.

"Why can't we tell them?" Kyler asked, cutting up a peice of tough meat in which he grunted during the process of attempting to cut through the tough parts.

His father stopped his butchering to look at his son with a slight frown but his eyes twinkled. "You know why son. If they find out we will be killed." Nicholas explained before going back to his work, ignoring the groan and grunt his son made.


It was still dark out but nearly dawn. Everyone was waiting for Thomas to give them a new fresh meat. They knew not to worry for Thomas was an excellent hunter and knew just what meat to capture.

"Where is he?" Ally asked, looking up to her mother who shrugged her shoulders in response before she made her way towards the kitchen, but a knock came pounding on the door and a cry for mercy interupted.

"Let me go! Let me go!" A woman cried out, stuggling against Thomas's grasp who would just continue to put pressure onto her wrist.

"I would shut the hell up if I were you," He snapped quietly, making the frightened woman stiff and silent with fear, then with a calm voice, "excellent."

"Isn't she a beauty?" Nicholas asked, admiring the scared, timid woman who was sobbing for mercy but all had seem to fallen into deaf ears as they admire the woman like hungry wolves. Kyler walked up to her and licked her cheeks, savoring it.

"She tastes so juicy dad," He said with a smirk, motioning for his dad to do the same. "Taste her, you will love how delicious it feels on your tongue."

"Oh she does," He complimented after he took a taste, a lick. He then turned to face his daughter who had a devil's smile on her face. He smiled back at her and nodded. "You know what to do. Boys, hold her."

With that command, the two brothers held down a screaming and stuggling woman who tried to free herself and call for help but to of no avail, they were stronger, a lot stronger. She had no chance of help of escape.

"I just love this part." Leona sighed, watching her daughter come back with a knife in her hand. With a smile so devilishly evil, Ally slit the throat of the woman first and then stabbed her in the heart, over and over until she was cold stone dead and bleeding crimson.


The sun was approaching over the horizon and the Kings family acted like nothing bad had happened last night but continued on with a smile as they served their early customers shepard's pie for breakfast. A man, who was new to the restaurant, took his first bite of shepard's pie and glowed.

"Ma'am!" He called out, waving his hand towards Leona who walked towards him, a menu in her hand and a pad with a penical through the spiral loop on top.

"Yes?" She asked with a bright smile on her red lips. This was her signature smile, this smile was what brought more and more customers in and never out.

"I would like to know the name of this meat." He said, taking another bite of the pie and a drink of water to chug it down. Leona was taken aback for a bit, none of the customers have ever asked what the meat was.

"The meat? Oh yes, it's a mystery meat. We don't take kind in sharing our ingrediants to other people, you know, they might steal it and we would run out of business." She explained but the man begged to differ by shaking his head.

"I must disagree ma'am, if someone where to do that, I continue to come here no matter what. For no one can top you and your husband's cooking. Simply spectacular." He complimented and Leona thanked the man before going inside the kitchen.


Leona planted a kiss on her husbands cheek as she watches him cut up the remaining parts of the woman Thomas hunted and Ally killed.

"Such a pity they struggle so much. Would be much more painless and quick if they just hold still." He said,raising his knife to cut down a tough piece of flesh.

Placing her hand around his borad shoulders and her head on one of his shoulders, she kissed his neck in which he tensed in pleasure.

"Honey, a man, new, asked what was in our pie, I told him the same thing we've always told our first time guests." She explained, moving her hand to his stomach and rubbed it up and down receiving moans from him.

Finally, he couldn't take it anymore, he stopped his work, turned around and picked up his wife. He layed her on a clean table, away from the danger of knives and stoves. He called out to his children to serve the customers until further notice.

Leaning in, he kissed his wife's forehead first before going down, all the way down to her toes, not missing a single spot on her body.

Leona moaned in pleasure, and told him he wanted more than just kisses and soft touches. Nicholas knew just what to do, he got up and went to grab a small knife from the drawer. Carefully, when he returned, Nicholas lightly cuts his wife's body then licks the blood away.

"Yes." She moaned, liking this very much. Nicholas continued on until they decided to stop and go back to serve the customers.


"I am telling you sir. We cannot tell you what the meat is, we just can't." Alley explained just as her parents were coming out as if nothing had happened earlier on. Once they were beside their daughter, Nicholas looked down at the man while his wife whispered into his ears.

"Oh?" Nicholas replied in the statement his wife whispered in his ears. "Well sir, if you must know what the meat is meet us back here tonight, be sure no one follows you."

Their curious custom had a mouth full so all he could do was nod in reply before he left to go home and ready himself for the truth behind the mystery meat. He was excited.


Wiping the grease off from each tables, Thomas asked how could his father give away their mystery meat. Nicholas had to be mad, no not mad, insane!

"He has a plan." Leona said while sweeping the dusts and crud from the floors. Shrugging their shoulders and sending out mutters at each other, the three siblings went back to their work until dusk settled in the horizon.

The night sky reigned over the daylight morning and the family waited for the man to arrive.
For what seemed forever Nicholas was getting irritated. "Where the hell is he?" He growled, his hand forming into a fist. A knock came on the door and Ally invited him in.

"Now, tell me. What is the meat?" He asked with a borad grin on his face. The father looked at his wife then his children before approaching the man slowly.

"Well my good sir. We will tell you," Nicholas said approaching the man. He then knocked the man out with a wooden mallet. He struck the head like a baseball hitting a bat, a trickle of blood appeared but he knew he blow was not enough to kill the man. "Get him ready."


The man had been unconsious for a while, when he finally woke up, his was tied head and foot in a chair and had a gag in his mouth, to muffle his cries for mercy.

The family came back with kitchen supplies, knives of all kinds, a wooden spoon, plates, all sorts of supplies. The man tied up was now becoming both nervous and frightened, he tried to escape and run for help but to of no avail, the knots were tied tight.

"So you wanted to know what our meat was hm? Here is your answer." Nicholas said, his tone dangerously low as he took a side step for hia daughter to come to him.

A knife was in her hand. She raised the knife over the scared man's face and stabbed his neck then his chest over and over until he was dead. Blood trickled down from his neck and chest. He now looked grostque. Ally stepped back to let her brothers, Thomas and Kyler butcher him up.

Thomas had the upper part and Kyler had the lower. Nicholas would help his second son with the tough meat while his wife and daughter went on getting the water boiling and the vegetables chopped up and soaking in the boiling water.

Thomas chopped off the head in one blow then cut out the ears and let the head roll onto the floor leaving a trail of crimson red blood. He then went in for the torso, he started at the center and made his way down until he was at the bottom and with his hands, he opened the chest and admired all the organs inside.

"Lovely." Kyler said licking his lips as he chopped the legs in slices just like how his mother did with the carrots. With kitchen scissors, he snipped off the toes one by one. Once he and his brother with the help of their father, were done, they all tossed the parts into separate bowls and gave them to the girls to put in the pot.

"Smells so good." Ally exhaled the sweet aroma smell of both death and soup as she and her mother stired and stired until it was finally ready.


The family decided have the man to themselves so the now dead and butchered man became their supper for tonight instead of putting him on the menu for the customers to eat and enjoy. 

"Now you see children. Your father knows what he does and he does it best." Leona said, taking a bite out of the man's kidney as all agreed. The family all smiled at each other as they feasted on the man who dared to know about the mystery meat.
