After The Freakshow

By Leslesleo All Rights Reserved ©

Horror / Drama

Chapter 1

Granted, Jimmy Darling never had a normal life, but that didn't really matter to him after he found that Bette and Dot was pregnant.Together they'd watch the Elsa Mar's Show and remember all the beautiful times they had at the Freak show. It was a happy, nostalgic feeling of their now-dead friends. 

These were the memories that rushed through Jimmy's head when Bette and Dot were giving birth to his pretty twin daughters. It was possibly the happiest moment of his life, but mostly because he saw that one of his daughters turned out "normal". She didn't have a third eye, the family hand condition, and she wasn't conjoined to her sister, which made her perfect in the eyes of Jimmy.

The other daughter however had the hand condition, and just like her sister was balling her eyes out; to help catch her first breath.

"Oh dear lord Jimmy, what should we name them?" asked Bette,  with her effervescent personality.

"Well I mean, I guess you two have to pick, since you are the mothers." said Jimmy, still shocked with joy.

"I want to name that on Janice." said Bette, pointing to the one with the hand condition.

"Yes, and we should name the other one Alice." said Dot, finally chiming in. 

"Two beautiful names for two beautiful girls." said Jimmy, chuckling at the end.

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

rajastreet: I enjoyed this piece! I loved the treatment of time and the premise! Some of the wording seemed a little out of place, but easily overlooked for a good a plot.

Sandra Estrada: I loved every minute of it and I thank my lucky stars that brought me to the story, it's been a whirlwind of emotions, plot twist after plot twist but I never got tired of them.

annie08c: I really like this story, I can relate to it a lot and with how she feels, the boyfriend and the events that happened but I'm a little bit younger. It was really good plot, really liked how you stuck to the topic and you had a new title for every chapter making me guess what's going to happen. Ma...

cassy466: Great story, however there were some issues with the chapters and some grammar or poor choices of words. It would be better if it was revised before being posted.. and whatever happened to the mother? And how did the relationship with her and peter became what it is.. need more details

chloe: This story is so beautifully written! The characters have gone through so much character development. The plot itself is amazing and it's nearly impossible to not get emotional while reading. It's very realistic and the unique writing style only adds on to the effect of the story altogether!

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

Dina Husseini: To be honest I never knew you could make a fantasy this scary. I really enjoyed reading your story. At first to be honest, it was a bit boring but then it got so interesting and fun and (also you even scared me at times). I would really love to see this story on the big screen. It does deserve sc...
