A Trip to the Circus Part 3"The Tamer? So, do you work here or something? Do you work for Mr. Magnificent? And why did you lock me in here?!" Nicole asked, franticly pulling on the cage door, trying to open it."Sheesh. I thought MM said the other one was the one asking all the questions." The Tamer snickered. "But I suppose I can indulge you, since it won't matter in a few minutes. I guess you could say I work here. I'm the one who is in charge of all the animals at the circus. Including the ones in this tent."As Nicole looked around puzzled, she noticed her head was starting to hurt. She also noticed that her hands and feet were starting to go numb. She could no longer hold onto the cage door, so she back away into the cage. "Animals?

The lion in the cage was immediately silenced and backed to the end of the cage opposite Michelle and the man. Then, a loud roar broke the silence. Only it didn't come from the lion.

A Trip to the Circus Part 2Magnificent didn't even begin to describe what they saw. The tent had an impossible amount of room inside considering how it appeared from the outside, and it was brimming with activity. Michelle had to run back out and check to make sure she wasn't going crazy, while Nicole simply stared in awe."Impressive, isn't it?" Mr. Magnificent broke Nicole out her stupor.
