Where’s Mommy? is a scary story from Japan about a little girl whose mother has disappeared under mysterious circumstances.
There was taxi driver whose wife disappeared, leaving him with a five-year old daughter to bring up on his own. The father had to work long hours and wasn’t able to spend much time at home. He often went out early in the morning and didn’t return until late at night.
His neighbor was a single woman and she kindly volunteered to come over and look after the child while he was gone. Every night, the little girl would lie awake, crying her eyes out and calling her father’s name. Then, one night, she stopped crying. Listening at her bedroom door, the neighbor could hear the little girl laughing. It sounded as if she was talking to someone.
“Oh, her father must have come home early,” thought the neighbor.
She opened the bedroom door and found the little girl sitting alone on her bed, laughing in the dark. There was nobody else in the room. The neighbor decided that she had to get to the bottom of this strange behavior.
“Who are you talking to at night when your father is out working?” she asked.
“My mom,” replied the little girl. “Whenever I’m lonely and crying, my mom comes and hugs me and kisses me on the cheek.”
The woman was shocked. “But I’m always here and the front door is locked,” she said. “How does she get in?”
The little girl pointed to the basement door and in a whisper, she said, “She comes crawling out of there…”
A chill went down the neighbor’s spine and she immediately called the police.
