Will They still be the Same
“Come on in” said the clown: The children were very scared.
“I won’t hurt you, I promise”: The children still held back.
“If you all come in I shall pay the entry for you, the experience will be free!”: The children thought about it.
“And, if you come now – I will give you free passes forever”: Now, the children were getting excited.
“This is the Fun-House children, happiness assured by me, your friendly clown”: The children felt more at ease, approached and ascended the steps.
“Well done my little friends. Now, just push the door open and all of you step inside”: The children did as they were told.
The door closed and locked behind them: in the dark they felt very afraid.
They heard the clown once more: “Children, this is ‘My’ Fun-House, try to get to the other door, see if you can leave!”.
There was no other way out:
And 6 years later the children are still missing.
