Bill and Carolyn move in, Dennis moves to his new house with his family, and all is great, right? Wrongo, again. My mom became friends with Carolyn and during the good old dog days of summer, all the moms in my town would tow their kids to the pool for the day.
Dang I miss having my birthday parties there
So one weekend when Kerry and Danielle came back to town for a visit, we all went to the pool and who was there but Carolyn. My mom introduced Kerry and Carolyn, because remember, they had never spoken until this day. They chatted about life and kids and the weather, until the all-important hushed question came from Carolyn. "Kerry, did anything...weird.. ever happen to you in the house?" "Umm, why?" Kerry asked.
The gist of Carolyn's story was that one day, 5 year old Brandon was up in his room playing and Carolyn called him down for lunch. Brandon didn't come, even after repeated calls. Carolyn marched up the steps and into Brandon's room and asked Brandon why the heck he didn't come down when she called him for lunch.
"Because the little boy in the corner wouldn't let me Mommy."
Double-U, Tee, Eff. Kerry shared some of her
horror stories with Carolyn, somewhat relieved she wasn't the only one to experience the weirdness in that house. A few years later, my mom casually asked Carolyn if anything else weird had happened at the house, to which Carolyn quickly and nervously replied, "What? No? What are you even talking about?" Needless to say, Carolyn and family no longer live in that house.
Let me just qualify these stories to say that Kerry was literally one of the most rational people I ever knew, so for her to admit to these stories must mean they're true, as far as I'm concerned. Do you have any scary, inexplicable stories? Happy Hump Day guys!
