Sleepwalking my way through life: Capcom has ruined me...



Capcom has ruined me...

I finish another paragraph and sit back to look over what I have written. The backdoor lets in a breeze that stirs my hair as I scan over another story to complete and I can hear the sound of wind on the trees. There is the soft roar of cars, the laughter of children that will (thank god) soon be restricted to schools, and the very faint hum of a lawnmower in the distance.

I sit back on the soft leather couch and stretch my fingers to type more. But as they type out the first few keys, I freeze. The wind coming in from outside has carried the mechanical buzzing of a hedge cutter, or perhaps a grass trimmer; but I hear the dreaded sound of a chainsaw.

My heart thuds loudly in my ears and my breath quickens as I feel the chill of night and the roughness of dirt. My hands are cold and sweaty as they clutch the handle of the gun and I feel myself swing round to face the sound, pointing the gun ahead of me for preparation of what I know is coming.

He stumbles round the corner and almost falls on his weapon, but he regains his balance and glares at me with gleaming eyes. That’s all you can see – those shining demon eyes framed by a loose brown bag. He wields his chainsaw, holding it high as his eyes show his menacing grin and he charges at me.

My heart jumps and I shoot, missing him in my panic. He’s getting closer, the chainsaw roaring louder and I shoot again. This time I had gained composure and the well placed shot to the knee brought him to the ground. I pulled out a shotgun and stared into those beady eyes of his as he struggled to his feet. The first shot hit and he was thrown back, bellowing in pain and anger; the second threw the chainsaw from his grasp and sent it skittering across the ground; and the third one silenced him. I stood over his hulking body and fired off another shot, just to be safe. I reload the gun and hook it on my back so I can bring out my pistol again… A save point will come up eventually.
