“Clown House”

     Garnet and Damon found the perfect place to hide from the militia group.

     As a result of the militia training, mentally they were grown men, but in reality they were still kids. They had to earn money for food, housing and stay hidden for a while. Before they were kidnapped, they always entertained the neighborhood children with their comical acts. Clowning around came natural to them.

     The clown house was quite unique.  The hand served as a hallway leading into the house. Each ear was a bedroom and the eyes were windows.  The nose was used for storage.  The mouth was a living-room and kitchen area with teeth-like curtains.  There was a red carpet shaped like a tongue and in the back of the head was a small bathroom.

    They had an ideal camouflage house, camouflage work, and earned enough income to live off of.

  1. Even though the clowns in your story are the good guys, I’m still a bit creeped out. The idea of the clown house is great, but something about living in a giant head scares me… Nicely done, though!


  2. Wonderfully described!
    It is very clever how you incorporated the clowns into a story which has and is currently happening across the world.


  3. Thank you for commenting . You are right about clown houses…and I’ve never been a big fan of them. I suppose I could live in one if I had no other options. The first creepy thing that happened though and I would be out of there in a flash!


  4. A great continuation of last week’s story, Jessie. At least they found somewhere to live/hide – even if it was a rather unusual house! It was very enterprising of them to put the house to such good use and actually earn enough from ‘clowning around’ to live on. How long will it last, I wonder? No doubt next week’s episode will see them facing further problems in a completely new setting … Well done. 🙂


  5. Thank you so much . 😊 I’m wondering myself what kind of photo prompt we will have to work with. I’ m going to try to keep the series going for a while if I can. It adds to the challenge.


  6. I liked your description of the house. I particularly enjoyed the clowning around part.
    Well done 🙂
    Looking for constructive feedback on mine!


  7. I was wondering if anyone was actually to use the clown house prompt and it worked really well with your story. No militia this time and we get to see an insight of their past :). This story is really going along, looking forward to the next part


  8. Thank you very much! I’m glad it worked. I always wonder what is coming next and how I can tie the prompt and story series together. I was a little hesitant about the clowns prompt, but my mind just started coming up with different ideas!
