CARNIVAL - Chapter fourShe felt pain in her right shoulder. She saw Kyle’s head jerk up with surprise and confusion. Cara pushed away the pain and leaped away from the cat. The cat lunged again and struck her other shoulder. Cara yowled in pain. She leaped forwards and came head first into the cat’s chest and heard the cat’s breath knocked out of it. Cara stepped back and got a good look at the cat.
The cat was a plain ginger tabby female. Her eyes were blue and were full of anger and she also looked pissed off.
Cara didn’t wait after that to lung forwards and land a hard blow on the cat’s ear to send her back with a painful yowl. She looked out of the corner of her eye to see her friends fighting other cats. There weren’t that many cats but they were strong and fast. Cara looked back at the ginger tabby in time to see her lung at her with claw extended.
Cara leaped back a little too late that the cat managed to land a blow on her muzzle. Cara shook her head as red blinded
CARNIVAL - Chapter threeMurmurs and a few gasps went around the cats surrounding them. Cara felt dizzy and she felt Shark at her side holding her up. The female seemed happy at this.
“Oh yes indeed, but instead you call me Star now… Snake, Kyle, get the red fool.” Star snapped at the two closest cats. Snake and the brown tabby cat. They nodded and ran off. Star looked back at her. “You know I kept your father alive, just for this,” She said sounding cheerful.
“You’re scared of everything,” Cara suddenly said. Star muffed a laugh.
“I faked it; see if cats thought I was scared of everything, they would leave me alone. Then I met your father. He seemed so brave and looked like he would kill any cat he met but it turns out, in battle he never drew first blood and he was too soft. So after I had you, I let him see you once or twice. Then I grabbed you went off and hid. Your father had worried and missed us and sent out search patrols once every week. Then they
CARNIVAL - Chapter two“Would now be a good time to tell you that a human saw you stealing yesterday and told on the carnival to the police,” Shark yelled to Cara over the wailing and screaming. Cara felt her stomach twist. She froze in place. She felt something yanking on the strap around her side. She turned her head and saw Ashleigh tugging at the fabric strap with her teeth. Cara could hear the tearing sound of it.
Suddenly she felt it give way and drop to the ground. Cara was still frozen in place by fear. She knew what police were. She knew she had to run but the carnival was her home and her family, how could she just run away from that with nowhere to go. She stumbled forwards. She turned to see Shark had pushed her forwards.
“I said run, follow Ashleigh,” He yelled at her. She was too scared to reply and was thankful someone was telling her what to do. She turned and saw Ashleigh waiting just under the trailer. Cara ran over to her quickly with Shark behind her. Ashleigh turn
five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
