Freak Show

I thought we were quite fortunate when the rotund, garishly attired carnival barker invited us to step inside the pavilion for a free sneak peek at his “Freaks of Nature” show. But it’s clear now that he was using psychology to lure us in just to give us a taste of the horrors within before he told us it would cost ten dollars to see more.


Written for these daily prompts: MMA Storytime (fortunate), Your Daily Word Prompt (rotund), Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (garish), Ragtag Daily Prompt (free), The Daily Spur (psychology), and Word of the Day Challenge (horror).
