The ringmaster approached two boys who stood near the “EGRESS” sign.
“You’re not fooling us,” said one of the teenagers. “Egress means exit.”
The ringmaster laughed, “You’re smart. However, at this circus, the egress is much more than a way out.” He brandished a pair of tickets. “Take these. If you find yourself outside, you can return.”
The boys grabbed the passes and entered the passageway.
Later, the ringmaster watched a grotesque monster devour the last remnants of its meal. He picked two blood-stained tickets off the ground. “Did you enjoy your lunch, Egress? I’ll send dinner after tonight’s show.”
