Oh man, that one was painful, but in a good way. Your ability to ratchet up tension with details is stellar, Aaron. A playground shouldn't be that scary, and it really, really was. Freaky, in a way that hits at real emotion rather than just thoughtless terror. Well done.
That was very creepy in a Twilight Zone-ish way. I never thought of a McDonald's playground as creepy - terrifying, yes, with all those kids on the loose - but unnerving? That was a first. Great job.
Thanks! I live to be creepy. McDonald's and I go way back. Pre-tunnels back.
My kids frequently get trapped in the playland tunnels, and I have to rabbit my way up there to save them. Now I'll be much more aware! ;)
Man, that was creepy! All your stories are creepy, but that one took the cake. I'll never think about McDonald's playgrounds the same way. :)I really like Big Pulp. They published one of my earliest stories too, back when they first started up.
*Shudder* I echo what everyone else said.
Great job, Aaron. As the others noted, the usually safe playground as the source of horror is an excellent touch. McD's was safer when I was a kid as there were no playgrounds...guess my age is showing.
Excellent job, ditto what everyone else has said.
As a mom-that scared the hell out of me. I hated those tunnel structure/ball-pits when my brothers were younger, and I refused to let my kids in em.See? That's why. x-P
Terrifying! Definitely one of your best : )
I knew there was something funny going on at the golden arches. I think it makes me age every time we go there. Good story.
