Mind Teasers

1. Drawing of a House

It happened this morning and I can’t stop shaking. I
was at the mall and I had just finished shopping when
a strange man tapped me on the shoulder and handed me a
picture. It was a very detailed and realistic drawing
of a house. I didn’t know what he wanted. All I knew was
the man gave me the creeps. He was standing right in
front of me. I wanted to leave but he was blocking the
door. He grinned and said, “Tonight I will kill all
of the people in that house.” Horrified, I pushed past
the man and ran to my car, with the drawing of the
house still clutched in my hand. I don’t know who he was or
where he came from or if he was even serious, but
you can never be too careful about these things. Luckily, I
live in an apartment building.

2. Daddy’s in the Car

Mommy goes out on Saturday nights and leaves me and daddy home alone. After dinner, daddy tells me to get into the car. Then we go and get ice cream at the mall. I have to sit in the back seat. Daddy says I can’t sit in the front until I’m older. Today, I went into the kitchen to see what daddy was cooking for dinner. He wasn’t there. I saw a note on the fridge that said mommy was going somewhere. I went to find daddy. I found him in the garage. Daddy was sitting in the car and the engine was turned on. We must be going for ice cream. I got into the backseat. “Are we going for ice cream?” I asked. Daddy didn’t say anything. I feel sleepy. I think I’ll take a nap.

3. Housewives

A while ago, I was riding my bike around town and I stopped outside a shopping center. There were two housewives standing outside talking and I overheard their conversation.

Housewife A: Did you hear about the house that burned down last night?
Housewife B: Yes. A woman died in the fire. I wonder how it started.
Housewife A: It was arson.
Housewife B: Wow. That’s scary. I’m worried. Aren’t you?
Housewife A: Do the police know who did it?
Housewife B: I don’t think so.

That’s all I heard before I got the creeps and cycled away.

4. Birthday

A little girl was invited to her friend’s birthday party. After blowing out the candles and eating the cake, the children went out to play in the garden. The little girl’s mother stayed in the kitchen talking to the other adults. They could hear the kids screaming and shouting as they played outside. The little girl came running into the house. “There she is now,” said her mother. “It’s her birthday next month. Tell everyone how old you’re going to be.” The little girl smiled and held up four fingers. All of the adults stared in horror.

5. Blind Girl Curse

This happened when I was in Elemetary school. I
was on my way home from school when I was stopped by
a girl with long dark hair that stretched to her waist. I
cursed under my breath when I saw her eyes. This is a true
story. Her eyes were milky white. She was blind. “I wonder
if you can help me,” she said. “I need to make a call. Can
you dial the number for me? You see, I’m blind and I can’t
read the numbers.” She made me nervous. Something about
this girl just didn’t feel right. I remembered an old ghost
story my mother told me when I was just a child. It had
to do with the ghost of a blind girl who kept asking
the people who passed by to do things for her. In the
end, if you helped her, she would put a curse on you and make
you go blind. The girl grabbed me by the arm and hissed, “You
will help me!” I was very frightened and she wouldn’t let me
go, so I pushed her away. As I ran off, I could hear the
blind girl behind me, laughing hysterically.

6. Daddy, It Hurts

“Daddy, it hurts,” the little boys said. His father examined the wound on his arm. It was very deep. “Don’t worry, it’s just a scratch,” the father said. He picked up his gun and loaded it with bullets. As the moaning sound grew louder, the father said, “I love you”. Then he put his gun to the boy’s head and pulled the trigger.

7. Hide and Seek

Mommy told me we were going to play a game. It’s a game called hide and seek. She said we would have to hide and Daddy would try to find us. She told me to find a really, really good hiding place. She told me I had to stay quiet and not make a sound. She said that if Daddy finds me, I have to run away as fast as I can. Then, we went to hide. I’m really good at hide and seek. I don’t think Daddy will find me. I heard him calling Mommy’s name. I heard Mommy let out a yelp. Daddy must have found her. Everything’s quiet now. I hear a creaking sound. The bedroom door slowly opens. I see a shadow standing in the doorway. It must be Daddy. He’s really good at this game.


  • Blind Girl curse: the first word of each line reads “if you read this you will go blind.”

  • This is really annoying. People are saying to read “arson” slowly to reveal that it was “our son”. The answer to #3 is actually that Housewife A did it. The only thing that she was worried about was that if the police found out who did it. Also, how would she’ve known if it was arson, while Houswife B only knew that it was a house fire. Ugh. 😑 people these days. THIS IS WHY MY ONLY FRIENDS ARE SLENDY AND JEFF THE KILLER.

  • 1) It was the picture of the front door of the house where you lived.
    2) There is a gas in the car that is making them go unconscious and/or die.
    3) It was arson. Read it really slow.
    4) The girl was holding up severed fingers.
    5) This was a cursed story if you read this story till the end you will go blind.
    6) The boy was bitten by a zombie and the dad just killed him.
    7) The father is on a mission to kill his family.

  • 7- The dad has gone insane and has already killed the mother. then he is in the room where the narrator is hiding and will kill the narrator too.

  • @HorrorGhoulReflection you mean she lost her thumb, not her fifth finger. As far as I’m aware, people only have four fingers and a thumb, not five fingers!

  • In #5 the narrator didn’t say anything to the blind girl so how did she know he was there when she asked him to help her? Maybe it was a person with white contacts and was messing with kids.

  • I love these kinds of puzzles….. Even though I don’t crack their answers sometimes ibenjoy reading them.

  • I don’t know why, but #1 TERRIFIED me. I’m so glad there are other people that have read this.

  • Yay! My answer and SFK’s answer of 1 are almost the same! (I also commented before the answers were told so :D)

  • 1. I don’t know
    2. There was some sort of gas spilling in the car. The dad was dead/unconscious and the kid passed out/died.
    3. Housewife A said “It was arson.” But that sounds like “It was our son.” Her son was the murderer/fire lighter.
    4. Something happened to the girl in the garden. She was going to be five years but only held up four because HER FIFTH FINGER FELL OFF!
    5. Maybe the blind girl knew about the ghost story and liked playing jokes on people (she pretended to be the ghost).
    6. He was putting the boy out of his misery?
    7. The dad is a murderer and killed the mom and is going to kill everyone else.

  • 1 it was the front door of the house you live.
    2 the dad and boy where drugged
    3. they killed the 3rd house wife
    4.the girl had a finger missing the 1st words of each line
    6.the boy got bitten by a werewolf
    7.the dad was a pychopath and wanted to kill them

    1. The first words of each line: “It was a picture of the front door of the house where you live” O_O
    2. The mother has left the father. He is committing suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning. The kid got into the car, the exhaust fumes make the kid sleepy so the kid will die as well.
    3. Housewife A set the fire. When B says “Aren’t you worried” A’s answer shows she is only worried about whether the police know who set the fire.
    4. The little girl was holding four severed fingers.
    5. The first words of each line: “This was a cursed story if you read this story to the end you will go blind”
    6. The boy was bitten by a zombie and the father kills him before he turns into a zombie.
    7. They are hiding from the father who has gone nuts and it trying to kill them (like Jack Nicholson in The Shining). The father already found the mother and killed her.

  • 6. The boy is going to turn to be a zombie or a vampire? Or maybe he got something contagious and the father kills him for he has not to suffer long?

  • Maybe in 2. The father was a doppelganger
    and in the last one, maybe the father was a crazed murderer or a ghost… I don’t know if I am right… When will SFK give the answers?

  • 1. The first words of each line say “It was a picture of the front door of the house where you live” O_O
    3. Housewife A did the deed :P. How could she know that it was arson and Housewife B knew that a woman died in the fire.
    5. The first words of each line of number 1 says “This was a cursed story if you read this story to the end you will go blind”

  • I don’t know if this is also right, but at the beginning it says she couldn’t stop shaking but at the end she was relieved she lived in an apartment. So hopefully that helps.

  • Housewife A committed the murder, because she knew it was arson. I don’t know if I’m right, though.

  • 3. The housewife A was the one who did it because how would she know that the person who died was a woman and how would she know it was arson?

  • 3. the murderer could be housewife A cause she knew someone started the fire even though it wasnt indicated that the fire was delibrately started by a person.
