The Crying

One night my dad was passed out in his bedroom. My younger sister and I were watching TV in the living room sitting on the old blue couch underneath the large picture widow when we first heard the crying. It sounded like a little child crying. It was coming from outside. My sister and I looked at each other confused and scared. I parted the fading blue drapes and peered out into the darkness. The large barn light lit up most of the driveway but I didn’t see anything. I pulled the drapes shut but the noise, the crying, continued. We both stood up and held hands. We walked into the kitchen and when we did the crying followed us, it was right outside the kitchen windows. I was too scared to look. We decided to wake up my dad. We both crawled up onto his bed about to wake him when the crying started up again, this time outside the bedroom window. We shook him about and started telling him what we had heard. Of course when he was fully awake the crying stopped. My sister and I huddled under the covers as he went to go look about the house. He didn’t find anything and came back to bed. As I lay there with my head under the covers, I listened. I wanted to hear the crying again, I wanted my dad to hear it so that he would believe us. Just as I was about to fall asleep, it started again. I looked over at my dad who had his eyes closed. I asked him very quietly if he was awake, if he could hear the crying. He opened his eyes and looked at me. His eyes grew wider as he heard what I heard, the crying.

Spooky Story…I guess I should mention this is a true story. You could say our farm house was somewhat haunted….
