Older Sister

The Older Sister is a creepy story about a young girl who longs to have a sister to play with. It is based on an idea by Bellemaus.

Older Sister

I always wanted a little sister. When my parents brought Sarah home, it was the happiest day of my life. She was so cute! I couldn’t wait to share my toys with her.

She slept in my mother and father’s room for the first couple of days. She cried a lot at first. She cried so loud that sometimes she would keep us all awake at night. I’m surprised the neighbors didn’t hear her.

Eventually, Daddy made a bedroom for her in the basement. He also built a bed for her with bars so she couldn’t get out. Sometimes I would creep down to the basement just to look at her. I’d see her lying there with her eyes open, just staring at the ceiling.

My parents told me not to give her anything sharp in case she hurt herself. I passed her some of my toys through the bars, but she just threw them away and started crying again. She didn’t seem to care for toys much.

I went to school during the week, but Sarah had to stay home. Mommy said she wasn’t ready for school yet. When I came home, I would always tell Sarah all about the stuff I had learned that day. I drew pictures of us playing together.

I’ll never forget the day I came home from school and Sarah was nowhere to be found. Her bed was empty and all her clothes were gone. Mommy was just sitting at the kitchen table, smoking a cigarette. She looked really sad. When I asked her where Sarah was, she started crying.

“Sarah’s gone,” she sobbed.

I didn’t understand. “We need to find her!” I cried.

My mother just shook her head. “Sarah’s dead. She’s in Heaven now.”

Daddy took her bed apart. He threw away all the drawings I had done of her. My parents never talked about Sarah again and they refused to mention her name. It was as if she had never existed.

I was puzzled by their behavior.

Then, one Saturday, my mother took me shopping with her. She had a package to mail, so we stopped at the post office. While my mother queued up to buy stamps, I looked at all the posters on the walls.

My eyes settled on one poster in particular. It was a picture of Sarah.

She was just as cute as I remembered.

Underneath her picture, there was some writing. It read:

“Missing. Sarah Winfield, age 16. Abducted from her home in 2011. If you have any information regarding her whereabouts, please contact the police immediately…”

    oh i get it. the girl who is telling the story is mental and is like 18 or something. and the girls dad made sarhah a jail cell so she could not escape. and the parents told the kid not to give sarah any sharp things so she could not kill herself. and sarah got something sharp and killed herself maybe. and they put her in the basement so no one could hear her when she screamed for help. atleast sarah didn’t have to suffer anymore… i feel bad for her.

    You guys are idiots. It means that the daughter had a mental disorder and begged her parents to have a younger sister. The parents kidnapped Sarah who was 16 years old. And they put her in the basement in a jail cell so she couldn’t escape. The parents told the daughter not to give Sarah anything sharp so she couldn’t kill herself. And they said Sarah wasn’t ready for school because they knew that if Sarah left to go to ”school” she would actually run away.So on the day that Sarah died what probably happened was Sarah got ahold of something sharp and killed herself. So when they went to the post office, the poster said Sarah was missing.

    and I also doubt that the parents killed sarah… I mean it says that when the narrator asked where sarah was, her mom started sobbing. if they killed her, why she be crying? it makes a lot of sense to me…

  4. PurpleGirlTheHorrorFan says

    I think the “older sister” was either younger than sarah, or she had a mental problem… anyway, its a sad story (and confusing)

  5. crazy-guy89 says

    So let me get this clear….. Sarah wasn’t a baby at all she was 16 .. Argghh!! This story sucks

  6. Shadow_of_Darkness says

    OKAY GUYS!!! HERE IS THE SUMMARY:
    I think that the narrator has a mental disorder and because Sarah, who was kidnapped, was brought to the family AFTER the narrator, the mentally disabled narrator automatically considers her a baby. Sarah refuses to accept anything from the family, explaining the toys. She can’t go to school because she could escape or someone could help her escape. Her “bed with bars” is a cage. She can’t be given anything sharp because she might kill herself or escape. She either was killed by the narrator’s parents, starved to death, or killed herself.

    IT NEVER SAID ANYWHERE THAT SHE WAS A BABY!! I GET IT NOW, IT SAYS SHE WASN’T READY FOR SCHOOL BECAUSE SHE HAD JUST MOVED IN! I WAS SO DUMB!

  8. XxNightmaregirlxX says

    I think that Sarah had a disorder that meant she never grew and looked just like a baby.

  9. bloodrose130902 says

    @WolfWitch13 but at the start, isn’t Sarah a baby? Because the story said that Sarah threw away her toys and started to cry all the time, she wasn’t ready for school, and the girl kept saying she was so cute. I honestly don’t get that she could be 16 year old in place of a baby body.

  10. SmileYourBeautifulx says

    The little girl wanted a little sister, so her parents kidnapped Sarah. When they first brought her home the parents kept her in there room so she didn’t escape. She was crying for help. The dad made her a cage to sleep in. She refused to play with the toys, because she wanted to leave. The parents told her to not give Sarah something sharp, because they knew she would commit suicide. They didn’t let her go to school, because once again, she would escape. Either Sarah committed suicide, or she starved to death she died. Then that’s when the little girl sees the picture of Sarah.

    Maybe Sarah was in the parents room cause they tried to explain the older sis had disabilities and maybe they were begging her to pretend to be a little sis. I think Sarah killed herself and not the parents. The parents just wanted to make their daughter happy. Sorry for my multiple comments. Oh and Sarah might have disorders too so she wasn’t ready for school and tried hurting and killing herself. I love these thoughtful stories and who is Bellemaus? Couldn’t find her in google.

  12. Requiem says

    I had a classmate that had a cousin who had a mental disorder and acted as like a 3 year old, it’s not called being retarded. I also think the parents kidnapped Sarah so their real daughter could have a little sis/ friend. This story is really tragic…

  13. Requiem says

    I had a classmate that bad s cousin who had brain disorders and always acted as if he was still 3 when he was a lot older. I like this story. I don’t think her parents were perverts, they probay kidnapped Sarah so their real daughter could have a little sister/ friend. It’s sad…

  14. tophatmiss says

    I don’t think the story mentioned that Sarah was 16 because you’re supposed to think she was a baby and be surprised at the end when you find out she wasn’t. But, that’s just my idea.

  15. RvB_Sigma says

    She was crying for help.

    She refused the toys because she knew what had happened to her, and refused to accept anything from the family.

    She wasn’t ready for school because if she was let out, she would have gone home again.

    EVERYONE ITS SIMPLE THE GIRL WHOS SUPPSOSED TO BE THE OLDER SISTER IS EITHER RETARTED OR REALLY YOUNG THE REASON SHE SANT GO TO SHCOOL IS BECASUE SHE RUN AWAY OR TELL PEOPLE SHES KIDNAPPED OR THE RECONIZE HER AND THE PARENTS WERE PROBALY INSANE OR PERVERTS AND THATS WHY SHE WAS IN THERE ROOM

  17. deadbymidnight says

    I’d say maybe the “older sister” (the one who narrates the story) is a mentally disabled girl.
    that’s why she still plays with toys. A normal kid will not say that sarah was her “little sister” because she’s bigger and older than her.
    The parents forbid giving sharp objects to sarah, because she might use it to escape or kill herself.
    when the parents saw that their child was getting too attached to sarah, they killed her.
    the parents are a bunch of homicidal maniacs..
    take note of the mother smoking cigarrete even her daughter is looking.
    that’s not good parenting as well.
    well a bit confusing.. but nice story!!

  18. csandy23654 says

    The reason why I’m confused is that I thought she was the older sister due to the fact that it says in the text: “I’ve always wanted a little sister”. So I thought she was a baby who was growing up during the whole story. In the first paragraph it read: “she cried a lot at first She cried so loud she would keep us all up at night.” Only babies bo that. The way she brought toys for her made me think tha aswell.

  19. Aurelia says

    Yeah, didn’t make sense at all. I get that the parents kidnapped someone to have a new daughter, but her being sixteen? How is she not old enough to go to school? Why is the older sister, who has to be at least seventeen, drawing pictures like a little kid and playing with toys? If she had been six, if would have made sense. My mind is also boggling over the fact that the parents had Sarah sleeping in their room. Someone that age…were they doing bad things to her?!

  20. WolfWitch13 says

    @catseeable It is a little confusing, but what I’m guessing happened is the parents kidnapped Sarah, who was a teenager, and tied her up in their bedroom at first. The father made a cage for her in the basement and then they moved her down there.
    I’m guessing Sarah either starved herself or found a way to kill herself, if not the parents probably did it.
