Father and Daughter

Father and Daughter is a creepy story about a married couple who see a young girl on a lonely mountain road.

Father and Daughter

Late one evening, a husband and wife were enjoying a romantic drive along a lonely mountain road. They were just rounding a sharp bend when a little girl came tearing out of the bushes by the side of the road. She stood right in the path of their car, holding out her hands and crying loudly.

The husband was so shocked by her sudden appearance that he almost ran over her. Luckily, he managed to swerve at the last moment and avoid her. Glancing in his rear view mirror, he saw her running off into the darkness. She couldn’t have been more than 6 or 7.

When they had calmed down, the couple began to dicuss what they had just seen.

“What is a little girl doing out here all alone after dark?” the husband wondered.

“I don’t know,” replied his wife. “It gives me the creeps. Do you think she was a ghost?”

“I don’t think so,” said the husband. “She seemed so upset. Maybe she was lost and in trouble…”

Just then, they noticed a man on the road ahead. When the man noticed their car, he put out his hand and flagged them down. The husband pulled over to the side of the road.

The man was out of breath. “Have you seen my daughter?” he asked.

He said that he had taken his daughter for a walk along the mountain trail and they had lost track of time. In the darkness they had become separated and now he was desperately looking for her.

The couple told him they had seen a little girl running across the road only a few minutes before. The husband felt so guilty about not stopping for the child that he offered her father a lift back to where they had seen her.

“No thanks,” replied the man. “You don’t have to that. Thank you very much though.”

When they described where they had seen his daughter, the man thanked them again for their help and took off running down the road.

A week later, the husband and wife were watching TV together. On the news, a reporter was saying that the dead body of a little girl had been found on a lonely mountain road and the police had arrested the man who murdered her.

Looking at the picture that was displayed on the screen, the couple were horrified.

It was the same man they had spoken to.

He wasn’t the little girl’s father at all.

The little girl had been struggling to escape the clutches of her kidnapper and, without knowing it, they had helped him catch her.

    Second time reading this after months. This is really sad. Didn’t see that coming, and who ignores a little girl wandering outside in the dark??

    Poor kid. I don’t really think it was the couple’s fault though. After all, the murder had a pretty convincing lie. They were just trying to help

    I would have helped the little girl and asked her where she lived. But then what if I ended up like Alec in “Turn Left”…? Y’know what, screw it. If I die, I die getting a little girl to her house. :P

    I bet the woman and man feel bad cuz they helped the killer get to the little girl.

    I feel so bad for the girl.;( I cant believe that they helped the killer catch the little girl. They must feel so bad!

  7. Dont take me seriously says

    @whiler Murderers dont burn the bodies cuz it attracts too much attention. Dumping it in a swamp or just crushing it does it fine.

  8. Whiler says

    Murders now leave the body somewhere why dont they just eat the body on second thought they burn the body

    it was “it was the same man they had spoken to.”
    not “I was the same man they had spoken to”

    ;(( I would’ve cried for years and felt so bad and most likely wish I could die with her. Oh, God.
