Chapter 3
Scared?
 
It was deserted.
Completely and utterly deserted.
Nothing.
No rubbish, no ribbons, flag, bows, footprints, indents, car-tracks, sweets, nothing. It was like it had never been there.
But it had.
I looked around the field; it was empty, too empty. There should at least of been a few holes where the tents pegs had been hammered into the ground.
They had been there last night.
Now they weren’t. The ground was flat, completely clean and it shouldn’t be. Even if the carnival had never been here there would at least be something here.
My eyes desperately scanned the field; there must be something, anything,
And then I saw something, a small black shape sticking up behind a green bush. I crossed the fields in seconds and moved the bush.
It was Katherine.
With Natalie’s scissors.
I froze and drew Natalie from my pocket; there was nothing in her delicate hands. Because now Katherine had her scissors, now Katherine could hurt, and now Katherine was here, following me. I cast Natalie onto the ground.
This couldn’t be happening.
Yet Katherine’s mocking smile told me differently.
“She won’t go away you know”
A voice spoke up, straight behind me.
I spun around and came face to face with a boy.
He was slightly taller than me, skinny and gangly; his black hair was messy and dropping over his face which was mostly covered by a black scarf and a high coat collar.
He was wearing shorts with long black and white striped socks that went up past his shorts, a long coat covered his torso, oversized yet is fitted perfectly.
He looked unnervingly like the boy in the cage.
Except he had had a slit for a nose, this boy had a normal human nose, although his eyes were wide and dark. His scarf covered his mouth, but surely with a stitched mouth you would be unable to talk.
“She’ll follow you everywhere”
“Who are you?” I whispered, his face rose as he smiled something black peaked out over his scarf.
“Me? Well, I’m Carter, and I, I’m the carnival cannibal”
With that he whipped his scarf away from his mouth and shot me a wide grin.
I screamed and took a step back.
Hideous stitches stretched over his red lips, scabs dotted where the string pierced the skin, blood trickled down from his mouth as he spoke, pooling in the indent of his lips
“Scared?”
I took another step back onto the muddy ground.
My foot met no resistance.
I fell to the floor; Carter leaned over me, a smile no longer blessing his bleeding lips. Katherine’s head poked out of one of his coats pockets, grinning down at me.
I shook my head vigorously at him.
He put his hand into a bag I hadn’t even realised had been there, and I was pretty sure it hadn’t been till a few seconds ago, and slowly drew out a piece of shiny metal.
I watched in fear as he bit by bit displayed what seemed to be to loops of metal, then with a flash he brought the whole thing out.
I went pale.
An enormous pair of scissors rested in his hands, their sharp blade glittering ominously.
“You should be”
