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.
