The Adoptive Parents is a short story by a user named ally. It’s about a girl who has terrible dreams about her crazy birth father.
When Sally was just four years old, her dad went crazy and killed her mom. He was sent to an insane asylum. Just a few months later, she was adopted.
Ever since she started living with her adoptive parents, she had been having bad dreams. Every night, she would have the same nightmare. Over and over, she would watch in horror as her father murdered her mother. The dream always ended in the same way. As the police dragged her dad away he would stare at her and shout, “I’ll get you, little girl! One way or the other, I’ll get you!”
One night, when Sally awoke from the terrible dream, she was more scared than she had ever been before. The nightmares had been getting steadily worse and every night the frightening dream seemed more real and more intense.
Sally was shaking with fear as she got up and ran to her parents’ room. She told them about the nightmare. They said that it was okay and she was safe and nobody could harm her. They brought her back to her bed and stayed with her until she fell asleep again.
The next night, she dreamed that her birth father came into her bedroom and sat at the foot of her bed. Lying there in shock and fright and mortal terror, she could not move or speak or scream at all. She just lay there silently trembling.
Her father’s cold, evil eyes seemed t bore right through her. As he came closer, she put her head under the covers and prayed to God to please make him leave her alone! Soon, she footsteps leave and go out the door. When she looked up again, he was gone. Relieved, she soon fell asleep.
The next morning, when she woke up, Sally told her parents about the frightening visit her father made last night. Her mother and father just looked at each other in dead silence and were obviously scared.
sally looked at her parents expressions on their face and sensed something was wrong.
“What is it?” she asked. “What’s the matter, Mommy?”
Her adoptive parents looked at her sadly and said, “We wanted to find the right time to tell you…”
“We got a phonecall this morning,” said her mother. “Your real father… your birth father, I mean… He died during the night.”
Sally stared at them in shock and confusion.
“But I saw him,” she said, her voice shaking. “He was in my room last night.”
“Sally, you probably just had a bad dream last night,” her father tried to reassure her.
Sally just nodded and said, “OK.” Then, she went out to play. Her mother was still worried and wondered if it was possible that Sally hadn’t been just dreaming.
That night, Sally was tired and went to bed early. Hours later, she awoke to find her insane father lurking at the foot of her bed and said “im gonna get you now”!! Her father came near here and said come with me now!
Sally refused and said “no!!!!!!!! i don’t want too leave me alone go away!”
But her father would not go away he grabbed a knife and said “Tsk tsk tsk ha-ha your stupid parents got a call last night saying i was dead too bad they didn’t know it was me lying”
Sally screamed in horror but to no avail. Her adoptive parents couldn’t hear her. Grabbing the knife, her insane father cut her body into pieces, hissing ”You should have listened and gone with me when you had the chance!”
The next morning her parents awoke and thought it was strange sally wasn’t up yet (as usually shes up before them). the wife noticed her husband didn’t seem worried and was actually calm. They went upstairs and her horror they found sally in a pool of blood and dead!
Next to her was a note that read: ”This is Sally’s father! You think you got a call from the police saying i was dead didn’t you! Well that was me i was alive and i finally got your little princess! good luck getting me! you’ll never find me!! If i cant have my daughter no one can!”
Finally, at the bottom of the page was Sally’s scrawled handwriting. It read ”mommy daddy why! I told you it wasn’t a dream and that he came to my room the night before! Why didn’t you believe me! Mommy daddy I’m not mad at you anymore i just wish you believed me! I love you mommy and daddy XOXOX sally. BTW don’t be sad mommy I needed to be with my real mommy again. But i wish it wasn’t this way. You gave me all you could. Thank you mommy and daddy ill always love you”
After reading that the mother sank to her knees and cried and screamed and asked why why why!?!?! I should have believed her! The husband didn’t do anything and appeared to have a devilish smile on her face. she didn’t understand why.
An hour later another man came in and asked “honey why is he here” she looked confused for a moment then realized the man that was with her earlier and last two night wasn’t her husband……. it was sally’s father! she forgot her actual husband went on a business trip and wouldn’t be home till that day but the man said that he got off and came home early.
They quickly called the police and took him into custody and a few years later he died in an insane asylum.
