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?

  • 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. :(

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

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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