Face Value

by bryanthomas

We always go to the shopping centre on Saturdays. Me, Mummy, Josh, and Daddy, if he's not working, but he usually is.

Mummy parked in the below ground level car park. We like that one because it has a huge escalator that brings you right up into the centre of the shops.

We could see the backs of the heads of the people in front of us on the escalator, but nobody seemed to be talking and the shopping centre sounded quiet too.

Mummy got off the escalator first, that was when she screamed - none of the people had faces.

@bernardtwindwil Thanks, bernard. We recognise different people almost exclusively by their faces - so what would we do if nobody had a face?

O.K. that would freak me out too. This could go anywhere with an extension of this short story. It could be horror, or a moral lesson, or a dystopic future tale. Great story!!!
