Amusement City

written by Teresa Dean Smeigh copyright August 2015

“Amusement park closes in 15 minutes. Rides closed to all except those in the lined waiting area already.”

Roger and Johnny run up to the huge haunted castle. A clown steps out and halts their advance. “The rides are closed you can’t enter now.”

“Oh, come on there is no one waiting in line. Let us go!”

The clown thinks a moment, changes his mind, and ushers them into the waiting car. The chains start and the car enters. Double wooden doors close behind it.

It is dark except where exhibits are lit up. The car stops and hesitates and then turns.

They reach a small set of double doors. The car enters, turns, then stops. Two clowns are there.

“Here is what we do to little boys who don’t listen.”

The boys were secured before being unstrapped. Horror dawning when they see the huge secured, hairy monster chomping on a small leg.

“No one can hear you in here. Enjoy dinnertime!”

The boys are shoved in and the doors closed.

  1. Great story Tessa! I think the men are really only trying to scare the boys, right? I’m hoping they really aren’t going to eat them. LOL! Thank you for participating with FFfAW challenge!

      I am thinking it is a way to scare them so they don’t do it again. There are several tracks in there leading to different scenarios. It is a large castle, but….you never know. I really love creepy..
