The Nail

“Dude, be careful where you point that thing. You could take someone’s eye out.” Bob says as he ducked away from the nail gun’s sights.

George with a cigarette dangling between his lips laughs and says, “Don’t you worry, you scaredy-cat.” Targeting his friend again, “See it can’t fire like this.” He pulls the trigger and nothing happens, “HAHAHA You Jumped SOOO High!”

“You’re lucky your father fucking runs this company. What would you have done if it had shot me?” Bob said clutching his heart.

Looking around the half-built house they were the only two people working on George replies, “I’d sue the company that made nail gun?” finishing with a shrug.

Taking aim at an empty window George pulls back on the safety contact and fires three nails, “See you have to pull back on this thingy to shoot it like a gun-gun.”

Thump, thump was all Lee Sun-Hae heard before suffering a fatal blow through her left eye. Hours later, Seo-Eun, her daughter, found her soaked lying on the floor in front of an open window and overflowing sink.

Seo-Eun stands in shock and whispers, “Finally.”

I grew up in a country that thinks it is better than it is and left because I wanted to know if the rest of the world was as crazy. These are the writings of a man trying to stay sane I'll post a story or poem every Wednesday
