My mind was spinning and thoughts raced through my head, to be a Ringmaster or not? I haven’t made a decision yet!
I didn’t know what to do- Have I really accepted that Ringmasters really existed? Do I even want to accept that such people like the Ringmasters were real?
The people in cloaks with shadowed faces stared at me. I could feel their gazes boring holes into me as I tried to keep any signs of emotion off my face.
“Alison, you have to make your choice now. Will you bear the responsibility of being a Ringmaster?” A voice broke into my thoughts; I glanced up to see the woman looking at me, her gray eyes searching through my own.

A small smile made its way on my face and I said in a soothing voice; “Yes. I said yes.”
Her head snapped up and her green eyes searched mine, “You mean it? You’re not lying? You’re really going to train as a Ringmaster?”
“Yeah. I’m going to be a Ringmaster.”
Yay! Alison is really going to be a Ringmaster! (Finally girl!) So, anyways, how is everyone doing? I haven’t been posting any chapters in The Ringmaster so here you go! How’s everyone’s Movember going? Are you growing mustaches? Or are you just watching people try to grow mustaches? I think I’ll just stick to watching people grow mustaches, not try to grow my own…
