During the annual joy parade, a little girl discovers a different side to her idyllic town.
I originally published this flash fiction in Schizoid Nightmares Anthology I on April 16, 2019 as the anthology's first story. It was my first story released under this pseudonym, Schizoid Nightmares. More than a year later on October 20, 2020, I would rewrite and release it on its own. It is not present in later versions of the anthology due to quality control.
