I don't know

by Maura | Score: 6100

The clown was right in front of me, a bloody knife in his right hand, a shirt button in his other. My mind kicked into fight or flight mode and I sprinted away and turned a corner smacking into someone. "Hey, young man are you alright?" "My name is an adventurous clerk but you can call me V for now. "V?" The adventurous clerk nodded and then I heard a clown laugh. I nabbed V and dragged him down. "What was that," V asked. Suddenly my phone rang and I couldn't answer him. I pulled out my fork. "Your fired" my boss screamed from my fork but I just hung up and continued running and dragging V. We then ran into another person who called themselves a distant judge who went by the name A. I dragged A and V down the street as the clown laugh was heard again. Sweat ran down the side of my head and then from behind us we heard a cry for help, but I wasn't planning on turning around. We reached a park and I pulled A and V inside ad behind the playground. For some reason, there was a whip behind it which I picked up and hooked it to my belt. "Hey look, it's a sailor," V said pointing. Sure enough, a sailor was standing a few feet from us painting a picture. I called him over here and he said he went by the name R. I didn't say a word for the clown laugh had sounded again. I shivered in fear but then an idea struck me. I would plot revenge against this clown. Maybe tie him up and murder him nice and slow. Yes, I can see it now the clown struggling on a bed beneath me as I slowly cut him open piece by piece. Wait someone appeared out of the shadows. It was a maternal builder.
