The Cowbird Egg
By Phoebe North



            Mommy and Daddy didn’t notice the stranger’s arrival. After all, the history was there. In the photographs that lined the staircase walls, a pair of infants was wrapped in their identical baby buntings. In the ultrasound that was still pinned to the fridge with a magnet shaped like a ladybug, two tiny boys curled round one another like shadows in love. To them, he had always been there, their blue-eyed boy, hair the color of the guts of a rhubarb pie. To them, their sons had always come in a matched, if contrasting, set.

            But Davy noticed. That night, when the specter passed through and placed the other boy down in Davy’s crib, he woke and screamed, edging to the far end of the thin mattress, pulling himself up the bars. His little mouth, frantic, twisted and he squeezed his fists through the wooden slats, groping toward his bedroom door for Mommy. She finally came, Bean snarling at her heels. She picked Davy up, rocked him, humming tunelessly for a moment. He closed his eyes, shielding himself from the nightmare—from the spirit child tucked inside his bed.

           But then Mommy stopped, Davy still clutched to her chest, and reached down, caressing the other boy’s cheek with the back of her manicured fingers. He let out a small baby yawn, mewling. The child was real, then.
