Listening to you all talk about the mice and little creepy critters that give you the creeps made me curious about other scary stories that you all might want to share. It's Halloween and the best time for creepy tales. It doesn't have to be a ghost story or anything, but I love sharing stories. I'll start...
When I was a little kid we used to live in the ghetto. I went to a small neighborhood school. Lots of times my mother would pick me and my little sister up from school, sometimes she'd send a cab but there were days when I had to walk home. I was shy, didn't have tons of friends and most of them lived at the 'bottom of the hill' which was just the projects. My family had recently moved to the 'top' of the hill which is where new Townhomes had been built. It was nice, but still the ghetto. It was also a longer walk.
When there was no cab, and my mother wasn't waiting for me, I began my long walk up the hill (as instructed by my mother.) To get to the top of the hill you had to pass a vacant and condemned building. In that building another little girl that was just my age (seven) had been raped and murdered. I used to have to walk past that building and as I got close to it I began to agonize over it and relive her horror in my mind. It was a different time when you didn't get arrested for leaving your kid home alone and it was okay to give them a key to the house in order to let themselves in.
But as I saw the building looming ahead I'd prepare to run past it. Each time my ears would begin to ring and my senses became sensitized. I know that girl wasn't in there but it seemed that I could feel her and see her. I couldn't breath until the building was safely behind me. And that is my first horror story.
