The story tells us the beginning of a family that decides to move when the father receives a job offer. Upon arriving in the new neighborhood, the sons, Jeff and Liu, are victims of bullying by some boys who lived in the area and whom they had to see at school.

These aggressors subdue them to give them their money as part of the payment for being in the area and “living with them.” The eldest protagonist of the creepypasta confronts them, starting a fight in the middle of the street. Between fists and knives on the ground, the new one adopts an inhuman strength, breaking the wrist of one of the vandals, having as witnesses the onlookers and accomplices.

The brothers continue on their way and end up at the school. On their way home, the police knocked on their door, assuring them they knew what had happened. They asked them to state defense if any. Liu defended Jeff, blaming himself for the teenagers’ injuries. As a result, the officers did not ask for more information and took him into custody.

To avoid maintaining an image of a troubled family, the mother insists that Jeff, the eldest, attend a children’s party. He argues it is not a good idea because of what happened to his brother. She orders him to go. With no other way out, he dresses up and crosses the street to join the celebration.

The brawl ends with two students chasing the new neighbor, who was injured and hid in a bathroom to seek refuge. When they find him, they attack him, and one of them throws bleach that is on a shelf at him. He sets him on fire and watches as he slowly falls, leaving him for dead.

His family manages to get him to the hospital in time. The damage to his body was very serious. The burns deformed his face, leaving him with a frightening appearance. He was not frightened. He considered that his new image reflected how he really was.

The horror story heralds the end when his mother recognizes that her son has lost his sanity, watching him use a knife to cut his mouth from side to side. She seeks help from his father to stop him, but Jeff hears everything and attacks them. When he arrives at the room of his brother Liu, who managed to escape prison, he only asks him to sleep while he ends his parents’ life.

The story inspired many artists to create illustrations about him, giving him a human presence on the Internet and forums.
