Alone on the carpet

When sarah wakes up she realises that she has been shrunk to the size of a pin head. her family have forgotten her and, with no idea how this has happened or how she can reverse it Sarah is forced to venture out into the world of "The carpet" Where vacuum cleaners can destroy whole villages and feet can squash counties


8. Execution??

Sarah had been on the auctioneer's platform for three days now; three days surviving on Little water... a death sentance in the dry arid land of the carpet...  So when the slavers dragged her out into the bare patch that served as a veiwing platform Sarah was little more than a juddering wreck. Hair so dry and knotted it had started to fall out, bones jutting through her waxy skin. Everything seemed unreal as she trudged roundand round in circles behind the other captives; The blaring voices, stifling heat, and dusty air all far away.. They couldn't hurt her... Could they?? Blurry red faces swam before her eyes, to much noise............. There was a moment of confusion then everything went black (Again)

"Another one for the circus then."

"Yes I suppose so Next one's on Friday"

"Or execution on Monday?"

"Nah, they're all booked up. Besides the circus is more of a show."

"Yeah I suppose so, they pay more too."

"See you then"
