276. Dog’s boy

276dog

“Dog” was the leader of a notorious motorcycle gang, Satanic Wheels. When Dog’s girlfriend had a baby he went off to register it. Why he was suddenly law-abiding was anyone’s guess. Babies can do that.

“The kid’s called Lucifer,” said Dog.

“I’m sorry,” said the Registrar, “but Lucifer is one of the names not allowed by law.”

“Fuck the law,” said Dog. “I want it called Lucifer.”

“You can’t,” said the Registrar.

“It’s called Lucifer whether you like it or not,” said Dog, storming out.

Not long after, Dog was shot dead in a gang fight. His girlfriend fled with the baby to another city. She lived with her parents, hidden in a suburban street somewhere.

The baby was known as Lucy, for short. He grew up into one of those “fucking faggots” his father so hated.

Gentle thoughts and expressions of astoundedness are both gratefully accepted.
