There was once a guy living in our neighborhood named Jimmy, he got picked on a lot for being a confident and funny guy, his mouth tended to get him into a lot of trouble and he seldom learned his lesson. He was just very content with who he was and refused to change it. When people asked him why he let them wail on him for his blunt comedy and wisecracks, he’d smirk and say, “Honesty is the best policy, at least they’re not hiding anything from me and neither am I from them.”

One of the kids he indadvertedly pissed off with a rather crude MILF joke was something of a psychopath with a sadistic streak who didn’t take kindly to the insult. So he rounded up the other guys who didn’t like Jimmy and they cornered him after school in the science room.

“Your mouth got you into this… I want you to remember that.” Brett, the ringleader, told him as he looked into Jimmy’s terrified eyes.

They grabbed some formic acid stored in the lab and threw it in his face. They stood around watching him scream in agony as it ate through his flesh before sniggering and running out, pretending to be concerned and wanting help for him.

When the paramedics arrived and were attending to Jimmy (who was no longer able to scream), the principal asked the boys if they knew what happened. Their leader Brett explained they were walking past when they saw Jimmy skulking around the lab room, by the time they got in there, he was already in that state. The other members joined in and backed Brett up with other fake details as Jimmy tried to protest in silent agony. The principal nodded and told them he would speak to them after he had a word with Jimmy and gotten his side of the story after he was out of hospital.

A few days passed and Jimmy was kept in ICU with bandages on his face, the doctors salvaging what little they could of his face, his vision still intact in one eye and his jaw withstanding despite the loss of flesh. He was still unable to speak and refused to respond to anyone. He just sat there, eyes unblinking & staring at the ceiling, bloodshot and filled with animosity. When he was discharged sometime later, he would not respond to anyone with anything other than the word “LIARS.” His social life gone, unable to smile or even crack a joke anymore, he secluded himself in his room and began planning. Sick vindictive thoughts started appearing in his mind, he would get them all one by one, decimate them, slice them, burn them. He waited patiently until the the group would be vulnerable, late at night when they said their goodbyes and went home separately. That’s when he would strike.

That weekend, Brett received a package in the mail. Curiously, he opened it to find a VHS tape with the words “For You” etched crudely onto the front. He put it in and played it.

It was a crudely recorded home video by an unknown camera man who didn’t speak at all for the duration of the film. It began with the camera pointing at the date on a newspaper, it was yesterday. As he zoomed out, you could see it was in a basement, a single flickering lightbulb hanging above and casting an uncomfortable scene. By the time he’d completely zoomed out, it was apparent this was no normal video. In front of the cameraman & on his hands knees was one of Brett’s friends. He was naked, a dirty blindfold around his face and a crude gag in his mouth. He was covered in blood, horrific burns, lacerations and wounds. One particularly large one on his back stood out that almost looked like a word….

The cameraman, with gloved hands, took the gag out of the crying boy’s mouth and immediately he begged to go home.

“Please, PLEASE let me go man….I…I did what you wanted! Oh god…Jesse, Mike, Keith….you made me fucking butcher them! I just wanna go home man….Please….I’m sorry guys….I’m so…so sorry….”

He just kept repeating it over and over, rocking back and forth as he did so.

Brett’s legs began to shake and he felt the bile rise in his stomach, he could see the burned, mangled bodies in the background. The bodies of his friends. All of them have markings on their body in deep, large cuts.

The cameraman reached out for the boy’s chin and lifted it up, encouraging him to stand. He did so obediently as he was slowly led to a door off screen, whimpering. Brett can see what’s been cut into his friend’s back now. It’s the word “LIAR”. The camera cuts out temporarily.

When it restarts again, they’re no longer inside. They’re instead out in the cold snow on the outskirts of the woods and it doesn’t appear to be the original man holding the camera anymore. It’s Brett’s friend. He’s whimpering and shivering as he holds the camera in one place for 30 seconds, pointing at some trees in the distance, hearing footsteps draw ever nearer.

“WHERE ARE YOU MAN? YOU SAID I COULD GO MAN! YOU SAID I COULD GO!”

The boy is screaming and crying, frightened out of his mind as the sound of crunching snow draws nearer from seemingly every angle.

It stops.

He turns around to see the mangled face of Jimmy, a horrifying howl blares through the speakers and the word “LIARS” appears before the tape abruptly stops.

Brett feels faint and darts to lock the front door, knowing what was coming. As he turns to run for it, he immediately hits something and falls backwards.

The last thing he ever hears is “LIARS” as acid runs down his face and begins to slowly eat away at his flesh.

The last thing he ever sees is Jimmy’s face, contorting into a sick, twisted smile.

    the picture was a very nice touch, and the story was good.. i felt it was a bit too quickly paced. and that the word crudely was used to many times too often. but great story none the less.

    Jesus fuck that was scary! Great pasta, although the beginning was lacking something. But overall, 10/10. Picture was a great touch, and scared me.

    Nice picture.
    I liked but the story felt as if the author was stood right next to all the characters, just writing down what they saw happening instead of telling the story. It was slightly off putting but it didn’t stop me from enjoying the story.
    The picture reminded me of Jeff The Killer in the sense that its some weird face that’s vaguely human and has a slightly creepy effect to it but this picture didn’t creep me out for more than a few minutes.
    7/10

    Great pasta! It feels like he should have waited a few years, though, cultivating his revenge until they grow up, cuz killing so many people would be a little too hard for a kid, especially the one who just got out of the ICU… But nonetheless the story is well-written and is a good read! Thank you))

    That was a very great story, but told a little too quickly. The picture really scared me and I would like to read more of your work.

    This is a different version of Jeff the same things happen except you changed some of it but as for the face burning it happened in Jeff the killer too.

      No it didn’t. Jeff burned off his eyelids and cut at his cheeks to make it smile. There was no searing of the skin to the bone.

    Best pasta i have read yet. I wss so impressed, i even decided to comment and let you know. This is first pasta i am actually leaving a reply and this to show my appreciation to the author. There are a few things i would like to point out though. Firstly, the plot was too quickly paced. The main character, the killer guy was very vaguely described after he got disfigured. There was not enough depth in the character as he slid into the murderer guy from the comical guy. Besides that, the murderer’s character buildup was too fast. As in I did not really get to know that character and suddenly he starts killing people. Secondly, more detail could be put into the killings. And I am not ignoring the fantastic way you potrayed the last victim’s wounds and injuries. But i meant more detail for the other murders. But i like the way you ended it cause it left me with a little to imagine myself, plus it added a bit more of the scare element. Going back to the point, the story would have been creepier if each of the other victims’ murders were more detailed. That’s about it. But overall. Very well done. The best pasta i have read yet. Please keep doing more. :)

    Good story, except for the fact that formic acid is TOO weak to be corrosive :P Nitric or sulphuric would have been better.

    Alright story, bad taste in acid 9a little stronger would have done the trick), and VERY nice picture at the bottom. Honestly wasn’t expecting that ;) Koodos, my friend.

    Also, Slenderman is obviously behind this >_>
