Targeted Age Group: 8-12
I bet you’re wondering who I am? You probably haven’t heard of me, but I’m sure you’ve seen me before. Think of a time when someone you know did something ridiculous. Something completely embarrassing and out of character. Maybe your grandmother started howling in the middle of a church service. Or your dad danced like a lunatic at a school disco. Well, that could have been me! My name is Blush and I am your worst nightmare.
What do you look like? I hear you wonder. Do I have hairy teeth or googly eyes, like your other nightmares?
No, I do not!
I look like you, or your neighbour. Your parents. Or perhaps even your teacher. I move from body to body, causing awkwardness wherever I go. You see, I hate anything ordinary and sensible. I feed off people’s embarrassment. To me, a wrong answer in class is delicious. Throw in a few stains on the seat of my trousers and perhaps my flies open and I’ll blush enough to move onto the next victim.
