~ Franki ~
For a first date, everything was definitely going smoothly. Alix's comments made her blush furiously, she was with her best friend, and was about ready to get something delicious-
"Food later. I say we do the Fun House first. I freaking love those funny mirror things, where you can look like a midget or a fat man," Capri explained, laughing. And there went the date . . .
Franki gave Capri one of those looks, a small little glance that suggestted the possibility something was wrong. Everyone else seemed please with this Fun House idea. Alix was smiling as he mentioned tunnels. So far everything sounded fun, as the name implied and then Adrian skipped up by Capri, looking up with a laugh at a . . . clown. Good God, this Fun House had to have clowns. Dark childhood days made the "cheerful jokesters" the thing of nightmares. She blamed her parents for taking her to a circus too young and letting too many creepy clowns try to make her laugh when all baby Franki wanted to do was play by herself and sleep. Well that, and the fact some of her older friends out of PHA loved to watch the movie It every Halloween, and torment her by waiting by her bedside in the middle of the night dressed up as the damned clown.
Giggles or Chuckles, or Satan the Clown awaited at the entrance with a painted on smile the color of blood. Avoid eye contact and it won't attack . . .
"Welcome to the Fun House! Surprises lurk in every corner!" it announce in a booming voice that had her giving the man behind all that make up a sideways glance as she bounced back. The group became to walk into the tent, and she quickly scurried after, flashing a look at creep with the red nose.
"Well if that doesn't give you nightmares, I don't know what will," Alix muttered. Franki let out a nervous chuckle, cowering to the back of the group as a narrow hallway with strobe lights extended before them. Her hands brushed against the walls, following after Alix as he made fat jokes and Adrian let out some scoff.
"How could you even suggest such a thing Alix?" Adrian teased from somewhere ahead, shortly followed by a brief string of curses and a yelp. Franki rounded the corner to see another clown with a can of silly string that made her eyes bulge, and an Adrian Brooks flopping around as he flung pink silly string out of his hair and face.
She felt her lips curl up into a smile, winking at Adrian as he looked at her for some kind of back up while Capri laughed and Alix had a smug look on his face that made him about twenty percent hotter.
"Adrian, I like the look. It really hides your face well," Franki beamed, keeping her eyes glued on the clown with silly string as it walked away to attack the next victim while she manuvered around him. "Francesca, darling, you wound me," Adrian sighed dramatically.
"Yeah, I guess that was kinda the intention," she murmured, hurrying up to Alix's side as him and Capri took the lead. Adrian realized he left his woman undefended from silly string...
