Chapter 8
The Revenge

July 7th 1:25pm, Strawberry County Carnival, Richfork IA


JOKER, staring at an ambulance headlight face-to-face, swallowed a hard deep lump in his throat as the glass came to a halt just one inch from his nose. The blinding from the headlight disoriented him and the swirl of lights flashing from the ambulance lit all around him, kicking his vertigo in full throttle.

JOKER grabbed the front of the ambulance, doing a quick soul-full prayer for not being creamed, and felt his legs buckle. JOKER felt as if he was going to vomit again, this time, due to the queasiness of almost dying! But that rapidly washed away when the ambulance’s paramedics exited the ambulance doors; they weren’t Strawberry County certified medical paramedics! Instead, two very large beefy men covered in tattoos, exited out.

JOKER recognized them immediately: their rival biker group, whom JOKER and his two buddies stole their motorcycles from last night due to losing a private card game at the bar!


JAMES & JACK watched the ambulance pull up in the grassy parking area but it seemed as if the paramedics were taking their ‘grand old time’. The ambulance stopped before it reached JACK & JAMES at the burning Beer Tent.

JAMES suggested, “I’ll wait with JAXSON & CROWMAN. You go tell the paramedics were up here.” JACK nodded, walked toward the ambulance and saw JOKER come bursting from the back frantically screaming, “Run! Screw those two burnt barkeeps! Get the hell out of here!”


NORMAN sat with SCARLET on the bench for the moment and watched curiously as a teenage boy ran into the Fun House after that crying woman ran in. NORMAN could have sworn that she was the paramedic woman with the guy earlier on the path. “But they were dead,” he whispered, but inside she went. SCARLET watched too, but she was more in a haze.

SCARLET spoke to NORMAN about needing help due to the heat, and that her husband HERBIE was still on the Ferris wheel. NORMAN, now realizing who the old man was, wasn’t sure if the old man was still alive. NORMAN looked at the Ferris wheel, saw ‘pretzel girl’, snuffed a chuckle, and then looked up to see HERBIE actually moving!

NORMAN went to the controls of the Ferris wheel as SCARLET watched a hazy, staggering clown walk to the Fun House.


HERBIE flopped off the dead girl in excruciating pain but was able to still breathe. The metal seat was hot to the touch but the pain his body felt was ten times worse. The ride jerked and HERBIE felt the movement, but then began coughing and wheezing. Next, a glop chunk of blood shot out of his mouth.


MORTEY followed RICK’s path toward the Fun House, but stopped and realized an old woman sitting on the bench near the Ferris wheel. An unknown ravishing rage began to build up in MORTEY for the old woman just sitting there. The two just stared at one another until SCARLET wobbled left to right, passed out on the bench, and collapsed to the ground. The rage rapidly subsided. MORTEY began walking back to the Fun House after RICK: the boy who closed his eyes and pumped several rounds of bullets at him!


LEON, limping but feeding on the adrenaline, hobbled the long way in the direction of his paramedic partner and MORTEY. As LEON watched MORTEY walk a direct path to the Fun House, LEON limply ran way left near the food vendors and circled around to the opposite side of the gaming area.

LEON found the exit to the Fun House, and before entering, LEON watched MORTEY stop half way down his path to stare at an old woman. While MORTEY was distracted, LEON walked into the Fun House just as RICK shoved his foot down the back of LEON’s partner’s head, shoving her head in a shard of mirror glass.

An explosion of rage ripped through LEON’s mind and before LEON knew it, he was tackling RICK and rapidly stabbing RICK with the “N” engraved knife! The blood began to flow out of the Fun House from LEON’s former partner and RICK himself; the hot smell of fresh blood was horrific to inhale.

Seconds later, LEON realized someone else was inside the Fun House, too, and that someone had to be MORTEY!
