The Magic Carousel

David had been at the fair all night, and it was getting dark. The clouds was gathering in the sky, and people were leaving. Rain might fall.

He walked towards the gate. He was one of the last, and the carnies were taking their stuff down.

There was a little door with lights on it on his right hand. He walked closer.

-Welcome, a figure said by the door. -Welcome to the carousel of dreams.

-But aren’t you closing?

-There’s always time for one last ride.

David went in, and jumped on a little carriage.

-Have fun! The operator laughed a wicked laugh.

The little carriage shook a bit. It took off…

Lost

The sun was piercing through the morning mist, the world awaking. Little birds were singing, insects looking for the day’s first meal. A little butterfly was coming straight towards him. It was surrounded by a strange glow. Magic. 

It flew up in front of his face and stopped in mid air. Hovered for a while. He rubbed his eyes, opened them again.

It had the the face and body of the most beautiful girl he had ever seen. Her naked body shone of sensuality and lust. She stared at him with intense, big eyes.

-What… What are you? He stuttered.

-I was about to ask you the same thing, she answered, smiling a curious little smile. -What are you doing here?

He didn’t know what to say. What was he doing there? What happened last night? He didn’t remember much, but it sure had been fun. He looked around. He was in some overgrown garden. He couldn’t tell where.

-I… I guess I’m lost, he said.

-You look lost, she chuckled. Her words sunk into his hung over nerves, like she was telling him a deep truth about his life.

Escape

-Get him! Get the bastard!

He ran up the hills, but the men were coming closer. He needed to reach the lake. They wouldn’t follow him into the lake, he knew that. They were too afraid of getting wet.

He jumped out from the cliff. As he fell something came up from the water… (Click image to keep reading)

Food Chain

The cave was tall and dark, and he was waiting for some sign of life. There was nothing. After a while he said a loud “hello”.

There was no answer. Hello, he said again. Do  have any food to spare?

“We don’t give at the doorsssssss” He heard from the darkness.

“The liquid is more toxic than ever. There’s hardly life left. No life , no food. I’m starving!”

“Go away….”

Thung too a deep breath. “Come out, or I’m coming in.”

“Hissssssss…”

He wasn’t sure if it was a hiss of fear or laughter. His whip hand rolled out, and he took a step forward. Another. A third. He entered the cave.

“Hisssssss….” He heard it closer… (more)

A Good Night’s Sleep

It had been raining for days. A lot. He was cold and wet. All his things were as well.

The clouds and the rain made the night dark, and with a strike of luck he saw a barn in a lightning flash. The roof was leaking, but he found a dry spot in a corner. There were even some old sacks he could sleep under.

His wet clothes were hanging to dry, and he snuck naked under the dry sacks. It felt good. Last night he had been trying to sleep under some bushes, but the rain had made it impossible. It had been hard.

A roar woke him up…
