“Do you need to hear confirmation from me — what is it you wan’t me to tell you?” Clair refused to meet Theo’s eyes, and slapped at his hands grasping for her arms; once his gaze held promise — not ice-cold loathing.
She lifted her shoulders as her mouth flattened, and her chin raised in defiance: “Leave, Sharon’s waiting; and yes — I know.”
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.
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.

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?
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.
