This challenge was to write a 100 word piece containing the dialogue, “What are you lot doing here?’
Here’s what I came up with (100 words):
Tears of a Clown
Ken was dead.
When he opened his eyes, he found he was beside a huge circus tent. Stale candyfloss and calliope chorus floated past on the breeze as several familiar figures approached.
“What are you lot doing here?” asked Ken.
“Welcome, Coco!” said Mr Giggles, painted tears contrasting his cheerful outlook.
Ken groaned and looked down at his own garish red and yellow costume.
“Yes, you guessed it,” said Flower, “It’s Clown Heaven!”
“Is this a joke?”
“Coco!” said Jangles, “There’s nothing funny about Clown Heaven!”
Ken sighed and put on his clown nose. “Yeah. You’re telling me.”
