David: If It Makes You Feel Better, They Get Eaten

The monster was tracking them, he could tell. He dragged her into the carnival midway, thinking the crowd would mask them, give them a chance. The pair ran past the rigged games of chance, resisting the temptation of three throws for only one dollar.

At the far end of the midway, the couple found themselves between the tent full of wild-card gambling and a sideshow manned by dead-eyed, face-painted slapstick entertainers, with no way out.

He looked at her and said, “Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right. Here I am, stuck in the middle with you.”
