_______ You took a hesitant step as your surrounding faded into a total darkness. There was not a speck of light, as if every matter on Earth was swallowed by some sort of monster. You prayed that your silly thoughts would not be the truth.
"Ahhh." A voice was heard all of a sudden. "We have a guest here."
A girl clad in black suit & shorts walked into your view as she brought light along with her. A candle, to be exact. Her pink hair illuminated in a bewitching glow that captivated you greatly. Must be the light, you thought.
"Welcome, welcome." She greeted you with a bow. "Your first time, I suppose?"
"Where am I?" You questioned, backing off as she walked closer to you.
Her serene smile turned into a mischievous Cheshire-cat grin as she whispered. "Shhh, don't be afraid. You will be fine. " She clicked her fingers and out of nowhere you heard the noises of machines starting to operate.
Despite her assurance, you were being afraid. "What is that?" Even when the familiar sound of carnival theme flowed into your ear, you were still confused of the situation.
"A carousel, of course!" She held your hand & pulled you along with her to the carousel. "You have visited a carnival before, right?"
You gave her a not-so-convincing nod. You vaguely remembered several visits to funfairs when you were young, but that was ages ago. "Why is there a carousel here?" You stared at the eerily beautiful creation. It was not what you used to see at funfairs- bright & colourful. The carousel in front of you was dark & somber, all the horses adorned the spinning platform were ebony in hue, with various types of gems decorating on top of them. Gothic-themed patterns were carved into the pillar & the oxidized gold gave it a torn-down appearance.
The girl sat on one of the horses as you held onto one of the pillars. "Well, it is here since forever." She grinned. "I have been waiting for a new guest for a long while. You are the first one since a long time ago." The top hat on her head bobbed up & down as she nodded. "Hmm, the carousel will have gone rusted if there's no guest, you see."
"... Where are the other guests, then?"
She seemed surprised. "They are with us, of course." She pointed at the horses. "This is Amy, This is Sue, This is Gerald & this is..." She continued listing names that he did not know.
The horses stared at you with their bejeweled eyes. You only came to notice their expressions. All of them looked the same- terrified & panicking.
"No worries, you will join them soon & you all will get to know each other." She giggled like a child playing with her dolls.
You tried to jump out of the carousel, but it was as if there was a invisible wall blocking you from doing it. The carousel's speed increased as the tune blended into a much more sinister tone.
"Welcome to my world, liar."
