Heavy breathing could be heard from the small figure. He tried calming himself.......but nothing worked.
The crowd of taller people ignored or gave him looks of disgust and confusion as they continued to walk around him. Some even stepping on him without a second glance.
It seemed the world started caving in on him. He whimpered and clamped his hands over his ears. Rocking himself......it didn't work. The carnival music and voices became louder, stronger until that's all he could hear. Everything began to spin. Noise so loud it hurt.
His breathing quickened as the world spun faster and faster......until everything turned black.....and he fell to the ground in a heap.
He didn't see the tall figure parting the crowd and forcing her way over to him. The figure stopped before lightly proding the small male with one of her feet. He didn't move and after a few more seconds, he was gently picked up and held to someone's chest as she carried him through the crowd.
