Fathers Day Gift

The Father’s Day Gift is a spooky tale about a teenage boy who is left home alone when his dad goes away on a trip.

Fathers Day Gift

In a large city in France, there was a teenage boy who lived alone with his father. Ever since his mother died when he was a child, he had come to depend more and more on his father. However, his father had to travel frequently on business trips, so they were not able to spend much time together.

Father’s Day was approaching and the boy decided that he would save up and buy his dad an expensive gift. He felt sure that this display of affection would show his father how much he loved him.

One day, his father took him aside and said, “Son, I have to go away on another business trip. I will be gone for about a week and I will return on Father’s Day.”

The son was disappointed but he said, “When you come back, I’ll have a special gift for you, Dad.”

Patting him on the shoulder, his father said, “And when you see me again, I will have an extra-special gift for you. Now, while I’m away, I hope I can count on you to be responsible. Take care of the house, keep it clean and tidy and above all, don’t go into the attic.”

When the son asked why, the father frowned and simply replied, “It’s a mess up there.”

With that, he embraced his son and left.

For the first three days, everything went well. The son was able to do whatever he wanted. He spent his time playing video games all day, watching TV until all hours and eating whatever food took his fancy. However, remembering his father’s words, he made a special effort to keep the house clean and tidy.

On the third night, the boy was awakened from a dream by a strange voice that seemed to echo through the house. He couldn’t make out what the voice was saying, but was muttering and moaning.

Gathering his couage, the boy got out of bed and walked out onto the staircase. The voice suddenly stopped and an eerie silence enveloped the house. The boy looked down and spotted something at the bottom of the stairs.

As his eyes adjusted to the darkness, he realized there was a shadowy human figure standing there.

Overcome by fear, the young man let out a piercing scream and ran back into his bedroom. He climbed out the window and ran down the street. Then, he took out his mobile phone and called the police.

Fifteen minutes later, a police car pulled up in his driveway and he met the two officers as they got out of the car. The boy led them up to the front door, but when he turned the key in the lock and the door swung open, the staircase was empty. The shadowy figure was nowhere to be seen.

The police went upstairs and made a cursory search of the house. When they found nothing amiss, they came back down and began laughing at the boy’s terrified behavior. On their way out, they told him not to waste their time with foolish pranks. That night, the boy locked his bedroom door and fell back into an uneasy slumber.

The next day, he went to visit his girlfriend, who lived a few minutes away. He spent most of the day with her and told her all about the shadowy apparition he had seen the night before. She convinced him that he had probably allowed his imagination to get the better of him. That night, as he returned to his own house, he felt a little more relaxed and went to sleep peacefully.

In the middle of the night, he was again awakened by the strange mumbling sounds. Shaking with fear, he hid under the bedclothes and tried to convince himself that it was all just a bad dream. But as the voice grew louder, he reluctantly got up to investigate.

The voice seemed to be coming from the attic. Nervously, the boy unlocked the attic door and peeked inside.

As his eyes adjusted to the darkness, he was horrified to see a severed human arm lying on the floor. It looked as if it had been savagely ripped from its socket.

The terrified teenager fled from the house and ran down the street. His heart was beating fast and sweat was pouring down his forehead. Finally, he arrived at his girlfriend’s house and began pounding on the front door. His girlfriend’s parents let him in and asked him what was wrong. The boy refused to tell them what he had seen.

For the next two days, he stayed with his girlfriend. Her parents cooked him meals and tried to ease his fears. When Father’s Day arrived, the boy once again returned home to await the return of his beloved dad.

He waited all day and by midnight, when his father had still not arrived, the boy began to get worried. Just as he was wondering why his father hadn’t called, his mobile phone began to vibrate. Looking down, he was relieved to see his father’s phone number.

When he answered the phone, he was shocked to hear a hoarse voice, muttering and moaning.

“Dad, is that you?” asked the boy.

There was no answer. Just more muttering and growling.

“Dad, is everything OK?” he said.

“Attic,” muttered the voice. “Attic.”

Grabbing a broom for protection, the boy nervously made his way to the attic. When he opened the door, he saw something lying on the floor. It was the severed human arm. Cautiously stepping over it, the boy spotted various body parts scattered around the attic. There was a severed leg, another severed arm and a bloody torso in the corner.

Bravely, the teenager moved further into the attic. There, on the ground, he spotted a severed head. He reached out with his broom and gingerly turned the head over.

To his horror, he recognized the face of his father.


  • I think that the guy who was “pretending” to be the kid’s father was really an imposter, and the real dad was dead the entire time, lying in the attic. Thank god I don’t have an attic or basement

  • The other dad was an imposter posing as the boys dad. The fake dad kidnapped the real dad, locked him up in the attic and killed him.

  • Seems as if the “father” he said good-bye too a few days earlier was the real murderer who made an escape……

  • Yeeeaaa, like I said in the story “Padestian Crossing” A very confused vamp here.

  • mv80: i kinda dont get it at first i didnt know were your torso is but i looked it up
    its actualy kinda cool how they put all this stuff on this website plus how do they find it

    aama: I didn’t get it but it was an okay story. I don’t get how the father got there when he left and who killed him. It is very confusing.

  • i dont get it whats the gift and who called him to go to the attic was the shadowy figure his father or a killer??? so many questions unanswered!

  • i think this is what happened:
    the dad caught/found some monster in the attic, and locked the door, and told his son not to go there. but the thing escaped the first time the boy opened the attic. the arm was there to fend of the monster so it woudnt try to escape. and while the boy was at his girlfriend’s house, the dad came back, but the monster killed him and dragged him back into the attic to eat him.

  • Why’d the father do that? That’s just horrid dude! -_” I know… Yeah it was his AWKWARD SURPIRISE but like why’d ya waste your life dude? {face turns: 😳} My conclusion is; probably he’s so tired with all of his business trips that he decided he’d rather die. But like me as girl?! Doing that!? HECK NO! I don’t even think my dad would do that. The father probably didn’t graduate college… Ummm.. And his work is like some guy maid to do his officemates’ commands and since he didn’t graduate college he turned to an idiot.
    Father: (._.”) Oh My Golly, someone just discovered my secret. But how? 😳

  • i get it the father got killed when his ma died so he said as a ghost that he has to go. but said to the boy not to go to the attic because he wanted to show on fathers day he was dead i think thats it btw first comment on the site

  • stupid story when he first saw he arm i thought it as his mother or fater then the phone call came wait how did he call if he had no body??????

  • And the dad may have not wanted the boy to go in the basement because he knew someone was after him, Or he simply didn’t want him in the basement :)

  • Ok, Take this for an idea. There’s a serial killer and he heard that the dad would be out of town and heard that he told his son not to go to the attic so he was killing his father in the attic, Expecting the boy to obey his fathers orders not to go into the attic and knowing he wouldn’t until the job was complete. It actually wasn’t anyone in the story, It was just a random murderer.

  • Yes :) She had a disorder that made her kill people and she placed the bodies in the attic, and she wouldnt remember because she had Short Term Memory Loss

  • Alright I got a riddle for you guys :)

    Title: Bodies

    Ever since I moved into this big house, I’ve heard screams and the sound of struggling. I wonder if this place has ghosts, but after I asked my parents about the past, they simply replied:

    “This house is new.”

    Then, I started to wonder if my parents were killing people. But, they were working when I heard the sounds, so they weren’t suspects anymore.

    I told the police and when they checked the house, they found two dead bodies in the attic. I was shocked, so were my parents.

    We quickly moved into another house. The same scenario happened, but I didn’t tell police. I’d have to take care of it myself.

    I walked up the steps and opened the attic door. There was a dead body.

    I screamed and closed the door. I wondered how it got there.

    I never told anyone about it. Then there came this other day when another body showed up. I started to get frustrated and called my parents and told them to move again. They asked me why and I replied frantically, “Dead bodies.”

    We moved away. Again.

    “Mom?” I asked.


    “Why do these bodies keep showing up in our homes?”

    “I’m not sure.”

    We all were scared and actually considered being homeless.

    Once we got to the house, I asked my parents for some money and my dad’s gun permit. They reluctanly gave them to me.

    I stopped by the store and bought a gun. I needed defense incase the killer following us was going to attack me.

    I came home and stopped by the attic. Another dead body.

    I screamed and ran down the stairs and on the fifth step I fell down. I got up and started to limp. My mom came out and asked me what was wrong. I shot her and my father wrestled me. I shot him in the head and started to break down.

    The next day, I walked up to the attic. My parents bodies were there.

    I called the police and told them they were murdered. They came over quick.

    I still don’t know what happened after that. All I know is that I’m in prison.

    Two questions:

    How’d the bodies get there and who killed the people?

  • what if… his father has been dead all along, and what walked out the door wasnt his father?

  • SO CONFUSING! the only part i get is the son wasn’t supposed to go in the attic and he did.

  • @scaryforkids u should make a page about the users scary moments. like if they see a ghost or come across a killer or u see a monster. you should make them put it in the comments under the page. ps. this part is not for sfk (scaryforkids). this is my ps3 name. The_Yellow_Dash. add me if u like to.

  • oh i think i get it now. the dad probably caught something in the attic years ago and locked it in there. then on that day he told his son not to go into the attic. then when it was fathers day the dad probably came home while the boy was at his girlfriend’s house. then the dad died and the thing put him in the attic. then when he came home and got the call either that was his son’s present and the dad knew he was going to die or he never got a chance to give him the present. did i help sum people?

  • There’s the sons big surprise. How could he go back in that house if I saw the leg, arm, and the torso ripped apart I would of Bennett out of that house and throwing up on the street. But it’s a just a story. Or is it?

  • finaly i hope no one cares about being 1st cause its getting in my nerves thx for the people who didn’t care about who’s1st, btw nice story

  • Oh I thought that instead of going on the trip the father had hidden in the attic and was eating peeps…

  • I really don’t get how he ended up In the attic but I think that the mumbling and stuff was the dad because he only had a head

  • Wow hahah nice job Dad, little son was extremely surprise with that surprise xD HAHAHAA

  • I think that the father did not go on the trip, he was hiding in the attic, tearing his limbs off day by day. Eventually dying on Father’s day. That was the Big Surprise for his son. That’s why he told him not to go into the attic.

  • so the dad knew he would be killed or what? the fact that his dad just ended up in the attic kinda doesnt make sense…

  • Hmmmm i wish there was more to this story/: who killed his dad.?who or what was in the attic.?

  • Wait im confused who killed the dad. Please someone explain this to me please *confused*
