“Tag”

29,635 views

She made a playful squeal as I tagged her. It was clear she was enjoying herself, she was laughing herself to tears. “Daddy, stop it, my sides hurt!” She continued to laugh. Her joy was contagious, I smiled, for once in years, I smiled. I dare say I’ve smiled more that day than I have in my entire life. Alas, all good things must come to an end, she was tired, and fell asleep shortly after.
My wife soon came home. She was so glad to see me, she yelled my name, again, laughing to tears. She hugged me, still laughing. I continued to smile. She looked down and saw my tagging tool, quickly shooting her focus back to my eyes. I continued to smile. “Michael…” Tears continued to stream down her face in excitement. “How could you have done this to our little angel?” She tried to run, but she was too slow. “Tag…” I smiled wider. “You’re it.”

    so when he said they were laughing to tears they were actually crying and when the mom hugged him she was actually trying to pull him back……..the girl didn’t squeal she screamed and the mom was screaming his name for him to stop……holy shit

    This is one of those “Criminal Happiness” stories. I absolutely love these because it adds to how insane these type of people are. If you ever go to youtube, search up “Meet the Pyro”, and it’s an exact example of what I mean by Criminal Happiness. What he thinks he is doing is good, but in reality, he doesn’t realize he’s ending innocent lives. 4/5

  • Commented on May 14, 2015 at 6:05 pm

    Took a small wile for me to get what was going on. So the father’s “tagging tool” was a knife and this story reversed everything that is in a murder story.

    The daughter ran as quickly as she could as her father chased her. Her legs grew weak and she tripped and her father quickly caught up with her and she could see him holding a knife. Before she could say anything her father stabbed her in her side and she began to cry and sob pleading with her father. The mother soon arrived seeing the father stabbing there child she pleaded with him to stop and he went after her as well. In the end the father ends up killing the mother as well.

    Haha, nice twist. I got confused at first, but I get it now. Short but simple. And a touch of insanity. Just what we all need. Sometimes the simpler stories are equally as decrepit as the long, insanely endless tales. This one was especially creepy, considering the mother doesn’t exactly worry about her child continuously stabbed by her father. They’re all mad. Well done on this.

    The best Pasta I have probably ever read, leaving Jeff The Killer! It’s impossible to impress me with stories but YOU did it, Gratz!

    What the author actually meant:

    She made a horrifying squeal as I stabbed her. It was clear she was having a painful experience, she was screaming herself to tears. “Daddy, stop it, my sides hurt!”, she continued to scream. Her pain was contagious, I smiled, for once in years. I dare say I’ve smiled more that day that I have in my entire life. Alas, all bad things (‘bad things’ here refer to his daughter) must come to an end, she was tired, and collapsed shortly. My wife soon came home, She was terrified to see me, she yelled my name, again and again, screaming to tears. She squeezed me, still screaming. I continued to smile. She looked down and saw my stabbing tool, the knife, quickly shooting her focus back to my eyes. I continued to smile. “Michael…”, tears continued to stream down her face in pain. “How could you have done this to our little angel?”. She tried to run, but she was too slow. “Stab…”, I smile wider, “You’re it!”.

    Awesome story. It’s short but it was still gruesomely awesome. xD

    The poor little girl. When she“fell asleep” she actually died! Very imaginative in a dark and twisted way. 10/10!

    This story was insanity hidden in happiness. It is really great. If someone doesnt know, his tagging tool is a knife. Now it reveals what it all means. Good job. Wonderful pasta

    This is art. The way this is worded makes it sound almost poetic.

    She made a playful scream as I stabbed her. It was clear she scared herself, she was screaming herself to tears. “Daddy, stop it, my sides hurt, stop stabbing me!!!” She continued to scream. Her joy was contagious, I smiled, for once in years, I smiled. I dare say I’ve smiled more that day than I have in my entire life. Alas, all good things must come to an end, she was tired, and died shortly after.
    My wife soon came home. She was so horrid to see me, she yelled my name, again, screaming to tears. She hugged me, still screaming. I continued to smile. She looked down and saw my Knife, quickly shooting her focus back to my eyes. I continued to smile. “Michael…” Tears continued to stream down her face in sadness. “How could you have done this to our little angel?” She tried to run, but she was too slow. “Tag…” I smiled wider. “You’re it.” He stabbed the wife and killed her. PLOT TWIST. Also Spoiler.
