YWS Flash Fiction Frenzy stuff. XD
The tent was huge and brightly coloured. It stood out against the pale yellow-green of the half-dead grass on the hill behind it. Mikel was in awe of it, of the way it towered over him, of the sounds and the sights. The animals, the various people and acts. He’d never seen anything like it before. Not in Melnar, and not in the world he was in now. He found it fascinating.
A tiger approached the bars on its cage as he walked past, hungry eyes following him carefully. Mikel gave it a wary glance. He didn’t like it, but he figured it was better if it was inside the cage rather than outside of it. The animal reminded him far too much of a certain beast which stank like rotting meat and had a taste for human flesh.
Mikel glanced beneath the cage-like trailer at a pair of legs on the other side. The shoes were black and shiny, and the pants above we a brilliant red. He followed those legs as they wandered off and around the corner of the trailer.
“Do you like her?” asked the man who had appeared. He looked important.
Mikel nodded. “Yes.”
