Bedtime Stories


The Parents is a scary story about a teenage girl who encounters a lot of hardship in her life.


There was a teenage girl who wanted to go to a disco for the first time. She asked her parents for permission, but they said she was too young. When she argued with them, they refused to listen and sent her to her room.

The girl was angry and decided to sneak out of the house. She really wanted to go to the nightclub. She took some pillows and put them under the blankets on her bed, so it looked like someone was sleeping there. Then, she got dressed up, put on some makeup and slowly opened her bedroom door. She could hear her parents talking in the kitchen, so she quietly tip-toed down the stairs and made her way out the front door.

When she got home, later that night, she climbed in her bedroom window and found that her bed had been disturbed. The blankets were crumpled and there was a hole in the sheets. There was also a hole in one of the pillows. In the morning, when she came down for breakfast, she didn’t say anything to her parents, but they were looking at her strangely.

In the evening, her parents went out for dinner. The girl wanted to call one of her friends, but she had run out of credit. She went out to the local shop and topped up her mobile phone. It was getting dark and, on her way back, she had to walk through a park.

She was going down a deserted path, when all of a sudden, a masked man jumped out of the bushes and tried to attack her. He had a long iron bar in his hand and he swung it at her head. She managed to dodge the blow, just in time, and the iron bar whizzed past her ear. The girl immediately fled before the masked man could catch her. She ran as fast as she could, not daring to look back, until she arrived at her front door.

The girl’s parents came home a few minutes later and the terrified girl told them what had happened. They scolded her for walking through the park on her own in the dark and told her to be more careful in future. They were still giving her strange looks.

The parents told their daughter to take a warm bath to relax and calm her nerves. The girl undressed and got into the bath. She shut her eyes and tried to forget about the disturbing events of the day.

Suddenly, the door opened and mother came rushing in with a toaster. Before the girl had a chance to react, her mother tried to throw the toaster into the bathtub. However, the woman misjudged the length of the wire and the toaster couldn’t reach that far. The wire stopped it short and it dropped harmlessly on the bathroom floor. The girl had narrowly escaped being killed by an electric shock.

Jumping out of the bath, the girl started screaming at her parents. In that moment, she realized that they had been trying to kill her. Grabbing her mobile phone, she told them she would call the police unless they told her why they wanted her dead. Her mother burst into tears and her father hung his head in shame. The parents sat down on the edge of the bath and tried to explain.

It turned out that the girl’s uncle, her father’s brother, was terminally ill in hospital. He was a successful businessman and had amassed a huge fortune during his long career. He had no children, so when he drew up his will, he decided to leave all his wealth to his favorite niece. When the uncle died, the teenage girl would receive over a million dollars. If she died, then the money would automatically go to her parents.

The girl couldn’t believe what her parents were telling her. She realized that the pair were incredibly greedy and soulless. Infanticide was the worst crime that a parent could commit. She struggled to understand how her parents could be so low as to try to murder their own daughter for money. It was a betrayal that could never be forgiven.

The girl immediately packed her belongings and left the house that very night. She booked into a cheap hotel and decided to cut off all communication with her parents. Despite the many difficulties she faced, she tried to make a life for herself alone. She got a job and earned enough money to put herself through university. Although she was very busy, she set aside some time each week to visit her uncle in hospital.

In her first year of university, she met a guy in her class who seemed very nice. He wasn’t very good-looking but he had an attractive personality. He was kind and gentle and always made sure he was there for her in times of trouble. When she was in his arms she felt safe and protected. Finally, she had found someone in her life who she could trust.

A few months passed and the happy couple decided to get married. They had a modest wedding in a local church and invited all their friends to celebrate the joyous occasion with them. The girl insisted that they not invite her parents to the wedding. When the guy asked her about it, she told him how they had betrayed her.

The day after the wedding, the newlyweds went on their honeymoon. They booked a short holiday at a scenic resort in the mountains, next to a shimmering lake. When they arrived, the location looked so beautiful that they decided to take a boat trip on the lake and take in the view. It was autumn and the leaves were falling from the trees. The sun was setting, casting an orange glow across the skies and the resort was almost deserted.

When they rowed out to the center of the lake, the husband got up and grabbed his wife. He pushed her over the side of the boat and she tumbled into the icy water with a spash. He grabbed an oar and began beating her over the head with it as she struggled to stay afloat. Eventually, he knocked her unconcious and she sank beneath the waves. Then, he rowed back to shore and called the police, tearfully recounting how his wife had accidentally fallen overboard and drowned.

A few days later, the girl’s uncle was found dead in his hospital bed. He had been smothered with a pillow.

Within a few months, the girl’s husband received the million dollars inheritance and he split it with the girl’s parents.


  • Stupid parents ┻━┻ミ\(≧ロ≦\)
    Poor girl, it seemed like [everyone] she cared about betrayed her… I don’t see why the husband killed her though. If he just killed her to have the money for himself only, then why did he share it with the parents? ɾ◉⊆◉ɹ

  • If that were me my ghost wouldnt rest until they died and lost every single penny.. NOBODY DESERVES THAT MONEY!

  • Who tf kills their child for money?!? Even if I was offered 56m I wouldn’t dare kill my child. I wouldn’t even take a second to think about it. Those are one f*cked up parents. Girl should’ve called the police. I hope her and her grandfather take revenge.

  • This is one of the best stories on this site!! So scary and sad😔 10/10 murderous parents

  • Suddenly everyone seems so selfish…poor girl…i wonder why she didn’t call the police on her parents….my dad would never do that

  • 2 words for the parents and husband:
    f*** you
    i mean seriously you killed someone who thought they could trust you.

  • I want the girl to come back and have her revenge with those stupid people -_- they could’ve just asked her ,y’know?

  • So they were looking at their daughter strangely at breakfast ’cause they thought she would be dead and I think they hired that masked man to kill their daughter last night, so he came with his iron rod and mistakenly stabbed the sheets and pillow……… I think this was the reason behind those holes.
    And imagine how funny it would be, I mean… “the door opened and the mother came rushing in with a toaster”. At least she could have made a good plan….after all it was a matter of a million dollars…>:)

  • if i would be the girl this is what i will do:
    the mother tells that they wanted money
    me:oh thats the matter.ok mom
    (mom is bathing)
    (father is resting in the bed)
    me:*sneaks into kitchen take a toaster , sneaks into fathers room takes out gun from the drawer goes near the bathroom slam open the door*
    mom:woah what are you doing.
    me:*evil grin* throws toaster in the bath*
    mom:aaaaaaahhhhhh, *gets shock*
    me:*goes in fathers room takes out gun*
    dad:*opens eyes* aaaaaahhhhh
    me:bye bye *shoots dad*
    well my parents wont do that they love me and i love them i will never do like this to them

  • My god o ___ o
    What even… This is like…
    Really messed up.
    (The girl in the picture is also very scary looking.)

  • jacked up in so many way this story is. oh well, i guess you can elude death forever. the biggest mistake a human can make is to trust someone. if they had found her body they should have been able to tell what really happened.

  • I’m glad ive got awesome parents. Cause if they tried to do that to me, well, lets just say I wouldn’t die first.

  • Oh gosh, who does that?!?! Some kinds of parents they were…and looking back on it, the holes in her bed were from the parents trying to stab her? Geez…
    @danceliketheresnotomorrow-I agree. They’ll all be in prison and I’ll be laughing on the other side, waving money in their face…Lol jk but they deserve it.

  • And this is why, my dear children, you give your money to charity instead of your neices with pyshco parents, next i’ll be teaching you about how to survive a zombie apocalipse.

  • Wow that’s very low of the parents. No parent would ever do that. I hope. :/ And the man that married her, ugh, what a loser. If they tried to hurt me, I would have called the police and had all three of their butts put in jail.

  • urgh why plpl had to be so greed killing other for money, i don’t want do anything for money cos i am not greedy and i not heartless person! if i get them for free, i will pay them proper no silly thing

  • @KayKay
    Actually, dreams are not freaky. They’re just the mind’s way of reminding you to go to school naked and have your teeth fall out. Not joking. U_U

  • Okay, you can’t kill someone by putting a toaster in a bathtub. The water would break the circuit breaker. I’d give this story a 1.5. Whoever wrote this didn’t do their homework.

  • Stories like these remind me how lucky I am to get as wonderful parents as mine:)
    And .. To know the guy im about to marry.

  • thats really sad and what was the point on killing her in the beggining it was three people sharing the money and at the end three people were sharing the money I don’t get it do these people have somthing against her or somthing

  • Well im not going to kiss ass & say this is a good story, but i like how this story makes sense, like something that could actually happen in the real world. Thumps up for that.

  • The parents and the husband so crazy and greedy and should be punished in such a horrible way just like the are!!! >:-()

  • Oh my god! Why would they do that to her?!?!? Just for money! Greedy skunkbags! >:(

  • Haha. So he teamed up with the parents huh? That’s crazy dude! BTW, SFK i’m so glad I ever got to discover your website in the first place. The one who owns this website could’ve been some writer or something. 😭 And SFK, you are so freaking creative! ✌Lots LOVE SFK!

    Scaryforkids says: Thanks a lot Imgianna! :D

  • Hey, I have a short story :D
    .:Princess Peach and Daisy:.
    “Hey Daisy, guess what!” she said eagerly, skipping up to her. “What?” Daisy asked. “I’m having a baby!” she squealed. The two best friends shared the excitement with Mario and Luigi. They had a party, and when it was time for the baby to come, Mario drove Peach to the hospital. She was wheelchaired away into the room with a doctor. Mario sat in a chair in the waiting room. It seemed like centuries before a nurse called him in to see his kid. “Mario,” Peach said in a sweet but tired voice, “we’ve got twins!” Mario stared at the doctor, something about him wasn’t right. “Congratulations on the twins…” he continued, “that is, MY TWINS!” he ripped off his mask and laughed, holding the two dragon babies. “BWAHAHAHAHAHA-”
    “Mario,” Luigi shouted , “Get up, and EAT YOUR PANCAKES!” Luigi then slapped hot pancakes onto his face. “Do ya want whipped cream with that?” Luigi giggled. He didn’t wait for an answer, and sprayed Mario’s face.
    ~Remember kids, dreams are freaky and whipped cream is cool :D
