'God! Get a move on man!' David grimaced, pressing
harder on the horn. 'Another bloody hold-up!' he groaned out loud,
craning his neck forward trying to see what was causing all the rumpus.
He pressed the horn again, 'toot, toot, toot' impatient to be on his way.
He was already late for an important appointment and now to be stuck in traffic in HIS town, was the last straw. Nothing ever happened along this part of the
route so what the hell was going on now! 'Keep your hair on mate!'
the young man in the van in front called out to him. 'I aint got wings
ya know. I can't fly!' David nodded realising that he was acting
in a rather irrate manner. 'Sorry' he called out of the window. 'Just
a bad morning!' The young man acknowledged his apology,
and turned the radio a little higher drowning out any further rebukes.

David sat staring ahead, his fingers strumming anxiously on the steering
wheel. Why on earth did this have to happen today, he thought out loud. A sudden jerk pushed him forward with a jolt and before
he realised what was happening, his foot pressed down on the
accelerator sending him crashing into the Van...

'What in f......'s name do you think you're playin at Mister?' The young man
was now standing by his car door. 'Blimey Mate, did ya ave to go
and run right into me back?' 'It was the car behind' David
stammered, lost for words. 'He just shoved right into me from
behind and the next thing I knew I was running into you!''
David slowly got out of the car looking behind him. A young woman
stood by the roadside, tears flowing down her cheeks. He
went over to speak with her ''What happened' he asked, hoping
she would give him an expanation and wishing at the same time that
he could start his journey all over again at an earlier hour. 'It was
the melons' the young woman sobbed. ''What melons?' David asked
incredulously, wondering if she was going mental ........''The melons'' the woman sobbed, wiping her eyes with a tissue. 'I saw them rolling towards me
and I must have skidded!'

Good Lord!' David exclaimed on turning round to see the young
man from the Van. 'Your face.....'' he stammered, 'your face is covered
in blood. The young man raised his hand to his face in astonishment.
'Well mate, better this way than dead......'' then collapsed on the ground in a helpless heap. David
looked down in amazement. From the corner of his eye he thought
he saw a black cat slinking away from the mayhem.......''Excuse me Sir'
the Police Officer said tapping him on the shoulder. 'Perhaps you can
tell me what's been happening here!''

Meow turned her head, purring with pleasure! She had more work
to do before the day was done!

As soon as Laura heard David's key in the lock she rushed to the door.
"Your so late and I was so worried she cried," taking in his pale face and blood smeared hands she burst into tears.
"Im fine," David consoled her, "Just give me a minute to wash my hands and I will tell you all about it, put the kettle on there's a good girl I could do with a good strong cup of tea."

Laura and David took their tea into the lounge and he told her about the accident in town. "All those melons" he laughed now beginning to see the funny side of it and in the middle of it all some woman kept screaming about a cat attacking her baby in its pram, what a day! I do hope that they have cleared the road before we go out with Chrissy and Mark to the circus tomorrow."

Later that night after David had gone to bed Laura sat curled up in her chair nursing a brandy, her thoughts turned to little Meow, "No it can't be her"she told herself a sweet cat like Meow would not cause such devastation.


Crossing the fields on the edge of town the alien cat gave no thought to the mayhem she had left behind her, after all it was what she excelled at and what she came to this earth planet to do, leaving a trail of little dead furry bodies in her path, she ate nothing preferring to kill for pleasure and she sensed there was better things to be had ahead.

In the distance she could see the little farm that the small children liked to visit and to the side of the farm she saw the little RED BARN.
Her eyes glistened, and her mouth started to water "Ah rich pickings and a good meal" she thought "Better than mice and birds any day.......bony meatless little things."
With her belly down on the ground and her ears flat to her head the cat serveyed the surroundings, she slipped into the barn unnoticed.

The ROOSTER was the first one to sound the alarm as the cat sprang onto one of the young chickens, snapping it's neck with one bite she dragged it out of the barn and quick as a flash made off with to a hiding place she knew. The cat slept well that night after her good meal and as dawn broke with blood still round her mouth she set off once more to find her friends in the circus...........

'THE CIRCUS COMES TO TOWN' proclaimed the multi-coloured banner outside
the large tent which had been erected in the middle of a huge park area surrounded by trees and a lake .Brightly coloured balloons of every shape and size appeared to be floating in the air and children held them tightly by their long strings as they ran around laughing and playing in the warm sunshine.

Chrissy and Laura looked for a suitable place to lay out the large tartan
rug before taking out the cold meats and salads prepared earlier.. Bottles of champagne popped their corks as they relaxed and chatted
soaking up the wonderful atmosphere.

Later, Mark and David strolled to the ticket office returning with seats
for the evening show. ''We thought you'd got lost'' Chrissy laughed,
offering two sparkling glasses of champagne together with bowls of fresh strawberries
topped with peaks of snow white cream. ''Delicious!'Mark exclaimed emptying his glass in a couple of gulps.

'The Show begins in two hours' Laura remarked checking her watch. We
have one more hour before packing up and putting everything in the car! '
'I'm just going to stretch out now and have a quick nap' Chrissy sighed,
resting her head on Mark's lap.'' ''Good for you'' Laura grinned. 'I think
I will do that too.......''

In the circus caravan the cat watched with envy as the two clowns put on their grotesque makeup, it was good to be back amonst his alien kind once more. Putting on his bright red nose the CLOWN looked down at him."You must join us in the ring tonight my little friend, you deserve a treat after all the mayhem you managed to cause in town, we are proud of you" he smirked, "Look the CLASSICAL CLOWN has painted two extra large tear drops on his face that's always a sign that good fun is about to start"

Leaving the caravan the three alien friends passed by the CAROUSEL. "Lets have a bit of practice before the main event" said the clown,"Watch this"........With a nod of his head toward the CAROUSEL the horses began to spin faster and faster, "Thats some little darling children that will not feel like eating popcorn tonight" he laughed,
COME ON NOW THE BEST SHOW ON EARTH IS ABOUT TO START!!!!!!!! ohmy.gif



ROLL UP ROLL UP, COME TO THE CIRCUS.

The ticket man shouted. "Quick lets go" said David to the other three "The show is about to start." Feeling wide awake after their nap they all ran into the tent.

Feeling like children again they took their seats, the lights went down and the circus ring was flooded with brilliant light, a fanfare of trumpets sounded and into the ring stepped the Ringmaster.
With his scarlet gold braided jacket and black crystal TOP HAT he made an imposing figure.


"WELCOME, WELCOME LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TONIGHT IS OUR LAST SHOW IN TOWN AND WE ARE GOING TO MAKE IT VERY SPECIAL FOR YOU"

He cried, and sweeping his TOP HAT in a high arc he bowed to the audience and was gone.

The March of the Toreador's blasted out of the speakers, and into the ring they all came........ Round and round the ring they went laughing and pointing at the audience with big grotesque grins on their faces. It was at this point that the adults began to feel uneasy. What was that ugly cat doing in the TOY WAGON that the clown was pulling,? what was the red liquid coming out of the water pistols that the clowns were squirting each other with........They drew their children close to them for safety........ ohmy.gif The music changed to the WAR OF THE WORLDS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Laura watched on in amazement as the show gathered
momentum. She glanced at her husband, then Chrissy and Mark,
all taken aback by the spectacle unfolding before them. A quiet hush
seemed to descend on the audience as the brightly coloured figures on the
trapeze, sailed through the air, the music blaring, louder, and louder.......
Higher and higher they soared as the crowd below strained to see
their slender bodies, gasping as one hand reached for another, fingertips
meeting fingertips, and then..........

'Oh My God!' a startled audience rushed to its feet. A loud thump
and a small, limp body lay on the sawdust floor, the safety net now a
bottomless hole! Tears streamed down Laura and Chrissy's face, and
the noise of children and adults screaming in unison could be heard
from every direction.

David's arm slid around Laura's shoulders. He could feel her trembling
and tried to still her tears. Mark was holding on to Chrissy and the four
of them turned to leave their seats, anxious to make their getaway from the
gory scene facing them!..........

'LADIES AND GENTLEMAN' the voice boomed out. 'PLEASE
REMAIN SEATED AND RETURN TO YOUR SEATS! PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE..........

Everyone stopped in their tracks turning round to face the arena once more.

The tiny crumpled figure stood up, bowing this way and that, not a mark to be
seen, its costume a mass of glistening sequins dancing under the dazzling
lights!

Laura, David, Mark and Chrissy looked on in shocked disbelief. What was
happening? What was this all about. Bodies shuffled uncomfortably,
coming to terms with something that never was!

The tiny figure bowed and curtsied again, spinning round and round with
every curtain call! Then, with a loud laugh, it was gone. Up, up,
up, higher and higher it rose finally rejoining its colleagues on the Flying
Trapeze.

The audience let out a gasp and started to clap. Slowly they clapped, one hand
joining another until the arena was resounding to the sound, and tears turned
into laughter once more.

Laura turned to Chrissy, her face drawn and pale. ''I feel sick'' she
whispered. Chrissy took her hand. 'I do too' she replied, 'I would like
to leave now! ' David and Mark agreed, gently steering their wives in the direction of the nearest exit.

'Ladies and Gentlemen and Children' the tannoy boomed once more. ''Please join
us in the greatest show on earth. We now have for you a
feat which you will never encounter again!'' Laura and Chrissy stood
rooted to the spot. A black cat appeared in the middle of
the ring, ears pricked in anticipation of what was yet to come. A huge circle of fire burned brightly as the Cat leapt back and
forth, flames rising higher and higher, ........... 'Oh No!' Laura exclaimed,
grabbing David's arm. 'I can't watch anymore.......please let's leave.'
David nodded.

Laura looked back at the Cat. 'David' she cried out in alarm. 'David' she
gasped in bewilderment..........
it's Meow!'

As Laura called out the little cats name she hesitated, somewhere in the depths of her mind she remembered a warm fireside and the kindness that Laura had shown her, with a toss of her head she sent the images away. "No time for that sort of thing she told herself" as into the flames she jumped.

Just as the audience thought the burning fire would surely surround the cat completely the flames turned to brightly red and orange coloured ribbons.

The Audience rose to their feet and applauded BRAVO,! BRAVO! they shouted as the ribbons rained down over them.

Settling down once more the audience waited in anticipation for what they knew would be the big finale. Into the ring the clowns pushed a large cannon, still laughing and pointing at the audience they set fire to the fuse.....You could almost hear the intake of breath.


BANG...... Went the cannon, and the audience was showered with little bits of round confetti like paper.......ON EACH LITTLE BIT OF PAPER WAS A LITTLE ROUND FACE WITH BIG ROUND HOLES FOR EYES.


That night Laura tossed and turned, images of the circus still in her mind, when David woke her the next morning with the newspaper in his hand......"Laura"he said, "Look at this the CIRCUS BURNT DOWN LAST NIGHT!!!!!"
