Father hires hitman

Written by Nick Farrell



Wanted to stop his son playing games


A dad who had enough of his son wasting days on online shoot-em-ups hired some of the best gamers in the business to assassinate his son everytime he played.

The father was miffed that his unemployed 23-year-old son, Xiao Feng, was allegedly devoting the bulk of his waking hours to an online war game.  However after a while of being the best of the best he suddenly found everytime he played he was cut down in seconds.

After a while, he began to suspect that something was up, and grilled his virtual assassins and then one let slip that he had been hired by the boy's father for just that purpose. It is not clear how the father found the in-game assassins but everyone he hired was  stronger and higher levelled than Xiao Feng.

His idea was that his son would get bored of playing games if he was killed every time he logged on, and that he would start putting more effort into getting a job. It did not work of course. Xiao Feng just realised that if he got better at the game he could make a good living beating up other gamers for their dads. (Well that's a job too... Sort of. Ed)
