The Amazing ChainSaw 3000

The shop keeper and his son are in the shop. The son named Jacob is flipping pages of a comic magazine called ‘Jason’. This comic is about a boy who suffers bullying at school and betrayed by his friends becomes an evil character who later on wears a scary mask has a chainsaw and scares all his school friends. Jacob, shop keepers son, is very interested in his father’s shop, he likes all the tools, hammers, screw drivers, but the most of all he loves the look of new edition ChainSaw 3000. This chainsaw looks similar to the comic book chainsaw, it is golden plated, looks extremely sharp, has aluminum blades, which are carefully polished everyday by his father. Jacob’s father specially ordered handmade glass box for the beast. He placed the chainsaw on the top shelve in the center of the shop, so every customer would see his pride and glory. Jacob is not allowed to touch the chainsaw, it is because for the very obvious reason of course: it is extremely dangerous (definitely plus 18).

Every now and again Jacob tries to play around the shop, explore the unseen, but his father straight away directs him back to his seat and warns him about the unpredictable dangers of his shop.

One day, same just like the other days, the shop keeper was counting the money and Jacob was reading his comic. Suddenly his father realized that he needs more coins changed from the bank, which is right down the corner. Jacob’s father said: ‘I’ll be right back’. The door closes, Jacobs eyes roll around the shop, this is it, his chance his moment of freedom. He quietly gets up from his chair, walks down to the shelves and just stares; he explores the tools, the sand papers, slowly making his way to the center of the shop. Here he is, in front of the beast, he knows that this is the only chance he will get to touch it, he puts his leg on top of the lowest shelve and starts to climb. He gets to the top, slowly stretches his hand towards the glass box, but it’s not enough, so he pulls his body up trying to stretch. Accidentally he slips, his body shakes to the sides and he loses balance, pulling the entire shelve down. The shelve unit collapses, knocking down the boxes of nails, the whole contents fly high in the air. Jacob quickly grabs the protection helmet and puts it on the head; the falling nails penetrate the helmet falling directly on top of Jacobs head.  The falling nails pierce the paint cans open and colorful pain falls down to the ground, spraying down on Jacobs clothes. The entire shop looks ruined, pierced bags of cement create the impression of a thick smoke. Suddenly the Jacob hears the shop door opening, his dad stands shocked, and he can’t see anything the layer of thick dust surrounds the shop. The door closes with a bang, the shop shakes, the glass box falls down to the ground and the ChainSaw 3000 is finally free. Jacob’s eyes open widely, the chainsaw is right in front of him, he bends over and picks up the beast. His helmet breaks and part of it lands on his face, covering his right eye and half of the cheek. The thick cement cloud starts to settle down; Jacob’s dad sees a blurred figure standing in the center of his shop, he still can’t make out who that is.

Jacob stands strong, his broken helmet with sticking out nails looks like a scary mask, the red colored paint on his clothes indicates the deep torture he could have caused and the golden plated beast-ChainSaw 3000 provides the confidence he so longed. He presses the automated start button of the chainsaw to hear it for the first time, at the same moment his dad’s eyes strike with fear, he screams running out of the shop. Jacob little confused stares into the shop glass, his eyes widen with surprise… Now he sees he looks so much similar to his favourite villain-Jason….
