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


5. The land of red

There were other prisoners in the train, thin, tired figures with blackened faces and rags for clothes. They were tied to one and other by chains attached to collars, and shambled along behind the carts and wagons. Keeping heads down and mouths shut, anything; it appeared, to escape the watchful eye of the man with the whip and just fade into the background.

"Why aren't I with them Liza?" Sarah asked, confused

"Do you want to be? Trust me they are not having a nice time"

"No but still, why do I get to travel with you and cadbry while they have to trail along behind"

"Very persistent aren't you!?" Liza raised an eyebrow "It's hard to explain, I'll show you later after we set up camp"

It was later in the evening and the caravan had stopped for the night. They were camping by a large bare hill on the carpet. (Guiltily Sarah remembered a spilt science experiment. Her mom had gone ballistic when she'd seen the hole......)

"Are you coming or not??" Liza's face poked in around the tent flap "Come on I said I'd show you when we stopped but you'll have to be quick it's nearly time for litesout" Sarah jumped up from her place by the prisoners; (although she might have been allowed to travel with the leaders of the tribe they were clearly not worried about skimping on her accommodation.)
