Drawlloween 2017 Day 19 Nightmare Nomads

Prompt Nightmare Nomads

Alright, so when I was a little girl, my parents used to tell me that if I didn't behave they were going to sell me to the gypsies. I know, bad stereotypes this, and PC that, but all I can say is it was a very different time in the 70's. Anyway, this was a very good deterrent in my case, cause it scared the crap out of me. For years as a child if I did anything I perceived as being the slightest bit wrong, I would have nightmares for weeks that a crazed band of child stealing gypsies would come and take me away. I imagined they would rattle up in their wagon covered in tassels and bells. The scary lady with the long grey hair and far too many handkerchiefs would hand my father a small bag of coins, and I would be handed over in return. Let me tell you, to a small child of 6 or 7, this was terrifying. I'm actually getting chills just thinking about it!
