Magnus, the magician, strutted onto the stage holding a chainsaw.

The audience applauded.

Wow, they love me, he thought.

When the applause faded, Magnus said, ‘Please welcome my lovely assistant Abigail.’

The audience clapped as Abigail sashayed onto the stage. With Magnus’s help, she climbed into the “sawing a woman in half” table.

‘Now be prepared to be amazed.’

He started the chainsaw, stepped forward, his foot tangled in the wire, and he fell forward.

The audience cried out as Abigail’s head rolled down the stage.

‘Er,’ said Magnus. Looking up from Abigail’s head, he dropped the chainsaw and fled.


The End
