Chapter 1

Lucy worked at the pizza place near the old abandoned Carnival Grounds. One night Lucy's friends and she went to the old Carnival grounds to snoop around and have fun. Lucy and her friend Katie walked around with their boyfriends Tom and Alex for about an hour. What they didn't know was these carnival grounds belonged to people. People different from any normal human and there was a lot of them living on the grounds.

One of these people was a boy named Tate, He was the most evil of them all. Tate ran past them through the shadows, Lucy turned around quickly and shined her flashlight into the dark foggy shadows. " Lucy you okay?" Katie asked as she placed her hand on Lucy's left shoulder. 

" I heard something" Lucy responded and spun around as a glass bottle clanked behind her and Katie.
"what was that?" Katie looked to the boys.
"girls it's just rats calm down, don't get your panties all in a wad" Tom joked and the group continue walking. Tate followed them carefully guiding them to the Carousel, Tate's favorite ride.
"hey guys check out this thing" Alex exclaimed excitedly and climbed on one of the old horses. 
"Ew Alex get off of that thing" Katie said and walked over to it, Tom took her hand and convinced her to just get on. Lucy also climbed up onto one of the horses just like the others. Tate was so excited and he flipped the switch turning the carousel on. 
" Ahhh what's going on?" Lucy yelled to the others and the carousel began to move and the music played. Lucy looked around to see who turned it on and she caught a glimpse of Tate standing in the middle smiling evilly.
"guys who turned this damn thing on" Katie screamed as the thing sped up. Tate flipped the switch back off and the carousel slowed down and stopped. Lucy's friends and her got off the carousel and ran trying to find the exit. 
"What the hell is going on, where's the exit?" Alex yelled as he kicked a bear bottle.
"Alex calm down we just got to keep looking" Katie said as she grabbed his shoulder.
" I saw someone" Lucy admitted and looked at them. 
"what..who?" Tom looked at Lucy surprised as he spoke.
" a boy at the carousel" Lucy said " maybe he can help us" Lucy looked to Alex and Katie. Alex took off running for the carousel and the others followed. 
" Alex stop please stop" Lucy caught up to Alex as they reached the carousel.
"where is  he?" Alex questioned angrily. Tate smiled and whistled a soft quiet tune as he sat down on a crate and played a black violin. The four of them jumped and turned around with Tate's first note.  Tate looked up at them with a glowing evil smile as his friends knocked the four teens out with beer bottles.

Deidre L. Swain: I understood where the story was going but the writing skills were lacking a lot. There are some places that had no flow. The plot was good which is what kept me reading the whole story. I think the author shows promise. They just need to tighten up on their skills to really get it going

ank1983: I really enjoyed this story and I read through it quickly. I found it very entertaining and some of your scenes were very well written and descriptive.

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

Bboyjoon: A brilliant but unsettling story about 5 murders committed by a serial killer. This novel scared me a little bit and I have to commend you for being able to do that.
