The tent was filled with people all preparing for the show to begin. The lights dimmed as one spotlight hit centre stage, illuminating the ring leader. “Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Cirque de la nuit” he announced as performers appeared. There were trapeze artists, a strong man, a rubber man, balancing acts, and clowns.
As the circus went on the lights dimmed until finally the announcer raised his arms. “And now, a creature though long since lost. A creature of pure fantasy. I give you, the neko boy!” A light lit up a boy who appeared normal until a pair of cat ears poked up from atop his head. A tail swayed from behind him. He began to jump through hoops, do flips, and perform his own balancing act for the crowd.
