Flash Fiction For Aspiring Writers – Part II Our House: The Creepy Clown Funhouse


At gunpoint, Vanessa and Theo are led through an abandoned Circus theme park.

Oh God, I hate clowns.This place is so creepy, can’t you just let us go? We’ll never say anything about you.

Do you have to keep aiming that gun at the back of my head. We get it you’re in control. Vanessa and I understand.

I use to have nightmares about clowns Theo. Dear God, they scare me. Please, (Vanessa says looking imploringly at the gunmen) Let us go. Vanessa starts to cry.

The gunman and his two burly buddies take Vanessa and Theo into the fun house. They are separated and placed in a room full of distorted mirrors with the giant picture of a clown on the wall. They call for one another but Vanessa and Theo are tied up.

Vanessa, where are you?

Theo…

Suddenly, the face of the clown seen through all the distorted mirrors begins to move. He climbs out of the wall (now the size of a human) with a knife in his hand and laughs maniacally.

  1. Vanessa and Theo are so difficult and relentless with their nagging. XD I couldn’t stop laughing (even though I felt bad for them). Well, that was until the clown came out with a knife. WHY? Why is this happening? Is it a sport or a way of passing time for these maniacs? I must find out. Thanks for the entertaining read.

  2. Well, that was pretty creepy. Enjoyed the story. The only thing confusing to me was the different formats for dialogue. Usually when I read italics it’s to describe internal thoughts, so at first I thought Vanessa’s dialogue were thoughts.
