The Older Brother

A girl told her friend that she had a dark secret she had been hiding for years. Her parents had been murdered when she was 15 years old. She said that her older brother had gone insane and stabbed her mother and father to death.

The friend was shocked at the terrible story she was hearing.

“I’m so sorry,” she said, comforting the girl. “What happened to your older brother after that?”

“He was arrested by the police”, said the girl. “There was a trial. I sat in the courtroom for weeks, listening to the lawyers argue their case. Eventually, my brother was convicted of murder and sentenced to be executed.”

“That’s horrible!” said the friend.

“Yes, it was,” the girl replied. “He was on death row for a long time. Then he was executed by lethal injection.”

“It must have been so difficult for you,” said the friend.

“You wouldn’t believe how hard it was”, said the girl. “I went through life in a daze. I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t sleep. I tried to block out the terrible memories. I suffered from depression, anxiety, even amnesia. It took me years and years to recover.”

“Have you ever talked to anyone about this before?” asked her friend.

“No, never,” replied the girl. “I have so many questions, but they’ll never be answered now. I was present at my older brother’s execution, but he never said a word. He never explained why he killed our parents. He just stared silently at me as they gave him the lethal injection.”

“There’s still a way you could get some answers,” said her friend. “I don’t know if you would be interested, but I know a woman who is a psychic. She can communicate with the dead. She’s very good. Maybe she could help you find the answers you are looking for.”

A few days later, the girl arranged to meet the psychic and consulted her about her past. The psychic turned down the lights, lit some candles and sat down in her chair. Then, she tossed back her head and went into a deep trance.

A few minutes passed and the girl sat in silence.

“Now, you may ask me any question you wish,” whispered the psychic.

“What caused my older brother to lose his mind?” asked the girl, nervously.

“Your brother was never crazy”, replied the psychic quietly. “He was always perfectly sane.”

“Then Why did my older brother kill my parents?” asked the girl.

“Your brother was only responsible for the death of one person,” said the psychic.

Suddenly, the girl understood everything. She buried her face in her hands and began crying uncontrollably.

Do you understand what really happened?

    The girl went crazy and killed the parents. Her brother took the blame and saved her life. She had amnesia and when she went to the psychic her memories flowed back and she remembered what she had done. Scaryforkids am I right?

  2. xxkittycatxx50 says

    Awww that’s sad. Girl had killed the parents and got amniesia and the brother stood up for her and was only responsible for his own death. :(

  3. lovevamps7 says

    Wow! Thanks PurpleGirltTheHorrorFan,
    I understood the story finally
    poor brother :( …

  4. P.S.Y.fan says

    Answer: The sister got crazy and killed the parents. The brother stood up for her. He was only responsible for his own death.

  5. PurpleGirlTheHorrorFan says

    The only death her brother was responsible for was his own. He got himself arrested and executed because he didn’t want his sister to die, since SHE was the one that went insane. Then, due to amnesia, she lost her memory, and blamed her brother. BAD GIRL!

  7. BloodyKillers says

    It maybe that –
    the father killed the mother & the brother killed the father for killing his mother.
    or
    the mother killed the father & the brother killed the mother for killing his father.

  8. kamkamsmitty says

    The girl killed the parents, but the brother took the blame because she was the crazy one and didn’t know what she was doing. The brother was only responsible for one death – his own.

  9. evbatarseh says

    There’s little to no thought put into this.

    Thoery 1 & 2 are the same just a simple character switch.

    Theory 1: The Father killed the Mother and the son killed the Father after grieving over his mother’s passing.

    Theory 2: The Mother killed the Father and the son killed the Mother after grieving over his oFather’s passing.

  10. iknowtheanswer says

    The girl went insane and killed her parents. Her brother killed her because she killed her parents. Now he’s arrested. The girl, now a ghost, was watching him on court. And the girl watched him die. I’m guessing that she forgot she was the one who killed her parents, now that she is a ghost. So now, she was telling her GHOST friend that he killed the parents. The ghost friend recommended the human woman, so she went there. Since the woman can communicate with ghosts, the woman can talk with her. Then she realized what she had done.

    That’s my best guess XD but I bet there is a more sensible one.

  11. juststrange says

    Aww I get it the older brother was responsible for killin himselfand the girl killed her parents

  12. sas1509 says

    THE GIRL KILLED THE PARENTS AND LIED TO HER FRIENDS AND SHE BLAMED HER BRO ABOUT IT AND SHE CANT REMEMBER CAUSE SHE HAS AMNESIA CAUSE SHE WENT CRAZY AND PROBABLY GOT PILLS FROM THE INSANE ASYLUM SO SHE CANT REMEMBER THINGS SO SHE CAN LIVE A NORMAL LIFE THEN THE PSYCHIC REMINDED HER AND NOW SHE IS CRYING

  13. Jeb says

    Oh, sorry to everyone who posted the answer before me. I hadn’t read all the comments before posting.

  14. Jeb says

    Isn’t it obvious? Her brother took the fall for the girl murdering her parents. The person who’s death he caused was his own by making that sacrifice. She can’t remember due to amnesia.

  15. GhostGirl1607 says

    aaaaaaaawwwwww omg hew brother is so sweet…but wait it said only 1 parent got killed by the boy so he murdered one and she murdered one?

  16. color_my_chaos says

    I’m not sure what the answer is but i think the 1 death he was responsibal for was his own.

  17. puppykisser5678 says

    The girl killed one of her parents and her brother killed the other because she has the disease Amnesia she could’ve possibly thought they were bad OR her parents were evil and they killed them before they could kill the children.

  18. spottedfire25 says

    the girl killed the parents but her brother took the blame the reason she wouldn’t remember is because she had amnesia
    is it right? i’m not sure :D

  19. bloodypup13 says

    I think that either 1:The brother killed her,or 2:The girl was insane and not her brother.

  20. Nicole9 says

    im 9. OH! :) i under stand! the brother was jelosh because the parents were probly mostly caring for the girl! yours is good too, fem-demon21

  21. fem_demon21 says

    i think the girl murdered one of her parents, and the brother murdered another so that there will be no witness to the crime. the older brother took all the blame and punishment just t protect his sister.. he must have loved his sister so much..

  22. ShellBee says

    I KNOW EITHER THE MOM KILLED THE DAD OR THE DAD KILLED THE MOM
    AND THE BROTHER KILLED ONE TO STOP THEM FROM GETTING TO THE LITTLE GIRL

  23. xChicken nuggetsx says

    Liar! The girl is liar! She lied to her friend! Her friend told her “Did you told this to someone?” She said “No,Never!” but she is a liar she told us!

  24. gothixgirl says

    The girl killed the pearents and the boy got the blame but the girl tried to kill herself and went to an isylum?

  25. Banana phone says

    OMG this is scary so at first I thought the brother murdered the girl and she was a ghost and the parents were still alive but I was wrong it turned out that she was the killer and his brother took the blame bad girl excellent brother god that brother is nice concidering brothers and sisters always fight.

  26. keyoko12 says

    i got it!, the boy killed himself,and instead of the brother being dead by injection, it was the father, and the father killed the wife

  27. Paradise says

    Aw! The brother is the nicest sweetest brother ever! I wanna hug his pain away! ;(

  28. KayKay says

    The parents committed suicide and the brother died by the injection? Oh, I got it so wrong.

  29. Xx da ghetto ghost mamaXx says

    ommgg,duhh,common SINCE,i luv scaryforkidz,i wudda guessd if I knew what amnisia was

  30. BloodymaryBloodymaryBloodymary says

    xXUNISTALLXx the answers were already written by SFK you obviously copied the answer. it say almost exactly the same thing. COPIER DETECTED

  31. GhostGirl666 says

    When it said that the girl burst into tears, I definetly knew that she was involved with some of the slaughter….

  32. xXUNINSTALLXx says

    The girl was the one who killed the parents but the brother decided to take the blame for the death of the girl’s parents so he was killed for no reason but the girl forgot because she had amnesia and it took years to recover so she didn’t remember but when the psychic told her that the brother was never insane and he was only responsible for one death which was his death, the girl suddenly remembered everything that happened and realized that she was a killer and she did everything and caused 3 deaths. Did I get it right?

    Scaryforkids says: Yes.

  33. xXPhantomFangWolfXx says

    Wow. This is really creepy. I mean, it’s vague yet obvious at the same time. The whole time I had the feeling that something about that girl’s story didn’t sound right.

  34. NekoPrincess101 says

    I know now, I think that he killed himself and she killed her parents and nobody knew she killed them? Right? :D

  35. theawesomeness says

    People! this is supposed to be a story! A story generally explains everything!

  36. unicorn5 says

    Hotel: When he only saw black, it was because the ghost of the wife was looking through the keyhole at him, the black was her pupil. So she will be coming for him tonight.
    Ashpit: The one thing you can’t do with an ashpit was fall in it. Jared murdered Angie and dumped her body in the ashpit, and is after the new girl

  37. unicorn5 says

    I have two riddles. One was inspired by the story “Keyhole” and the other one I made up.
    Hotel
    I was staying in a hotel in Florida. When I checked in, the hotel manager told me not to go into Room 67. That was the room across from mine.
    The next day I couldn’t resist. I tried the door, but it was locked. So I crouched down and looked through the keyhole. At the window, I saw a pale skinned woman with beautiful long black hair. Her back was turned. Hearing footsteps coming up the stairs, I ran back to my room. I was planning to look again the next day. I looked through the keyhole again in the morning. This time, all I saw was darkness. Plain black. I looked for a few more minutes, but continued to see black. I gave up and walked downstairs to check out. I thought this was the oppurtunity to ask about Room 67.
    “A man and a woman were staying there a few years ago, and the man went inside and murdered his wife. The man was sentenced to death in prison. The ghost of his wife is still in the room. She has pale white skin and long black hair. It is said that if you look into her eyes she will come for you that night.”
    I thanked the man for the stay and went outside to call a cab.
    Did you notice the horror of this story?

    Ashpit
    I met a man on a dating site on the internet. I was scared because I had read about men murdering women they had met on Facebook and MySpace, but Jared seemed really nice. We went for a drink and things were going really well, so we went back to his house. He said he was going to get something, so I looked around his living room. I saw a little hole in the corner next to the fireplace, so I went and looked. It led to the ashpit. Inside, was the dead body of a woman. She was wearing sunglasses and had ANGIE written across her top. I gasped. Angie was Jared’s ex girlfriend. He was telling me about how she left him in the night a few weeks ago. She must have been putting some coal in the fire and fell in. The poor girl.
    Do you realize the horror of this story?

  38. ceebbees1234 says

    Now that i know the answer i just want to say…..that is one nice brother. Oh well… it is sad when you kill your parents and your brotherngets blamed for it.

  39. Bob Jones says

    Wasn’t the brother the physic or something? Creepy cuz I have two older brothers… And yes, I’m a girl.

  40. Alice says

    I think the girl went insane and killed one of the parents. And the brother want to take the blame for her so he killed the other one. The girl have friends and talked to them: the girl still alive. The psychic said the boy have responsibility on one person which means he killed one.

  41. LarryScary says

    I think the girl went insane and killed her parents, and forgot because of the amnesia. But, the brother was convicted. The reason he just stared at her was because he couldn’t believe what she did and that she blamed him.

    After reading answer: Dammit, so close!

  42. says

    Dreymon got it right. Answer: The girl was the one who went insane and murdered her parents. Her brother took the blame in order to save his sister’s life and allowed himself to be executed (killing himself). The girl went into therapy and lost her memory (amnesia). When she went to the psychic, the memories came flooding back and she realized the truth.

  43. XxdeliciosscreamsxX says

    OMG IM SO CONFUZZLED! sfk plz pst the answer, im dying 2 know who got it right lol

  44. B-Lovely says

    I thought that he killed the girl, and that her parents and him disappeared after that. Or the girl may have been insane, I don’t really know.

  45. MrPsychokiller69 says

    Well his sister was the one who’s insane, she killed her parents. But the one accused was her brother, maybe he loved her sister so much that he didn’t defend himself or nobody really believes him. He let himself die.

  46. DeadlyDeath says

    Lol he killed the sis and then they killed thereselves after seeing ther daughter dead the girl is a ghost

  47. griffin88 says

    Eeyup. I’m going with this.
    >She killed them both
    >He took the blame
    >He thus ‘Killed himself’
    c:

  48. Really? Scary? Call me Rose! says

    Ok,ScaryForKids,Plzz put more riddles on becuz this “stories” thing is getting boring. Thank You,Really? Scary?Call me Rose!

  49. AlicetheAngel says

    My answer would be that the brother had only killed one parent, and the sister killed the other because she did say she suffered from amnesia and she probrably forgot she killed one?? I dunno…that’s my best guess

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~The Zoo Zoo~~~~~~~~~
    The zoo zoo is a story about the oriental people of Bangladesh and India. The immigrants who came about three decades ago. They have a strong believe in Ghouls and Demons.In fact,every tribe in that area have a strong believe in a Ghoul named “Zoo zoo”. According to their statement “zoo zoo” come and take their child in a form of wild animals. They have different paintings,art and specially masks.the legend about “zoo zoo” remained silent untill the recent event. For kind information i want to mention that there are many tea gardens in that area.Few days ago a manager came for a visit at his garden with his wife and younger son but his rest_g=house were considered as a haunted place of zoozooo. Some mask of zoozoo can be still founded on that rest house. When that man was visiting his wife saw a allegoric mask of zoozoo, Then she took it with her, in deed she never had the knowledge of zoozoo,She took it with her…….3days letter the couple realized that their kid were very afraid of that mask.So they use this policy to feed him such as:when that kid dont wanna eat something thay told him that zoozoo will come, then the kid ate.(Paranormal entities get power if someone call their name). Oneday the mom suddenly heard something when she was feeding his child. she heard “zoozoo ahong” which means zoozoo is coming. It happened twice in a day soo she was tensed about it. when her spouse came back home at midnight she concerned him about this. He was laughing and saying “let the zoozoo come”……then suddenly they heard a whisper “zoozoo ahong jab” that means zoozoo has come and he is eating! they ran into their chid;s room….but suddenly thay saw a tiger shaped animal jumped out their windows and alas! they baby was teared into tei pieces! The mom became mentally unbalanced on that time. But the father is still finding the demon to huant down.

  51. TheHollowDevil says

    there are so many possible answers, but i don’t know wich one is best :/

  52. Tigerhallam says

    The girl killed the parents in a fit of insanity. She can’t remember this.
    The brother pretended to be the murderer to save her life, therefore killing himself.

  53. lacole luv99 says

    here are some guesses i have…
    1.one of the parents went insane killed the other parent and the boy killed the parent in self-defense or anger?

    2.the girl killed the parents and then the boy killed the girl so she couldnt kill him?Then she didnt remember it?

    Please post the awnsers scary for kids!Was I right?

  54. furrykinz2234 says

    the older brother killed himself and the girl killed her parents,she was then put in a mental hospital where she told her friend about her older brother

  55. Saw-Girl says

    Scaryforkids can you tell us the answer and did I get it right? Thank you ^_^

  56. Saw-Girl says

    The brother killed the girl because she was killing the parents but she didn’t get it now because she had amnesia.

  57. Dreymon says

    i love the riddles!!! girl was the killer she went nuts n took years 2 recover b/c she was crazy. The brother took the blame…she didn’t remember b/c she had amnesia…right?

    Scaryforkids says: You are correct :D

  58. PeanutPete says

    oooh! I know this ain’t the answer, but… So she’s dead? She killed both the parents, and the brother killed her. While in court, he stared at her, or in his version, the wall? So the psycic can talk with the dead? SHE WAS TALKING WITH THE GIRL?! Was the girl dead? Oh, and when it said he was scedulled to be excecuted… Thats not of our time, is it? I mean, it’s death row… But… Excecution?
    And from prettydeadgirl5 view, I understand that too. But when they say the boy was perfectly sane in both of our stories, that makes me wonder…. WHYYYYY? O___O I am a very logical person ^^ heehee

  59. prettydeadgirl5 says

    no what happened was the father killed the mother and the son was so upset he killed the father.

  60. Cat21860 says

    One parent was crazy and killed the other parent, then tryed to kill the boy but the boy killed him.

  61. GhostGirl666 says

    I have NO idea. Please help me, scary for kids! I think that the brother killed her or something…. I’M SO CONFUSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  62. scary617 says

    the brother was the one that got killed and the girl was the insane one… did i got it right?

  63. Burning.Betrayl says

    I think that means the boy never killed his parents but he never stood up for himself so he was put to death, therefor killing himself. Did I get it right?

  64. Saw-Girl says

    The boy killed himself ? Did I get that right or wrong? ^_^ Or was it the mother?

  65. killerkat101 says

    I’m stumped so did she kill,one parent or did the brother kill i really don’t know does anyone else know?¿¿¿?¿¿?¿?¿?

  66. Icyblu4211 says

    I’m guessing the boy killed himself and the girl was insane (and probably in an asylum at the time with another insane person or a medical worker).
