Flash Fiction For Aspiring Writers – Part III Our House – Flasback to the Clown and a House all Their Own. 


Theo the house . . . where did you find it it’s magnificent! I mean it’s not our blue house but look at that back porch and the view. It has so much potential!

I knew you’d love it Vanessa. That’s why I bought it!

You bought it, you mean this is ours? Well I haven’t been so happy since we escaped those kidnappers 10 years ago . . .

It turns out, Theo had had a knife in his back pocket and pulling a James bond, had cut his ropes in the distorted mirrors room and found Vanessa and cut her ropes too. They had ran madly from the clown with the knife when they realized the clown wasn’t chasing them but the kidnappers. It had been a bloody time when the the clown slashed and stabbed the kidnappers to death. Theo and Vanessa had found there way out of the funhouse and taken their car back to town in shock.

What’s that? 

That’s when Theo saw the clown coming towards them a big grin on his plastic face. The clown waved and went on his way.

Word Count: 180 aprox.

    1. I had quite a few people beg me to do a series about 3 photos ago so I thought I’d give it a try. The clown was just a hook at the ending to do just what it did creep u out and continue that whole creepy vibe this story has had lol , glad u liked! Can’t wait to read yours.

    1. Yeah. I kind of liked leaving it open ended like that. Like 10 yrs later all of the sudden here’s this clown again WTF ? Kind of thing. Hope you enjoyed it despite the clown. Next week new story, no clowns I promise!

  1. That ending was creepy! Even though the clown sliced and diced their kidnappers, it doesn’t mean he did that for them. Now this crazy clown, who is capable of doing something so gruesome, has reappeared in their lives. Even for a brief moment. That’s enough to keep them awake all night, paranoid. Then again, maybe the clown’s trying to have a fresh start, too. 🙂 Great way to leave the story open and make us wonder what went wrong between the clown and the kidnappers.
