the little boy in the pool

Author: Iliana Whittier

I had just came home from work to see my children sitting on the couch watching TV i told them to do there chores since i told them they had to after school. I was laying in my bed and then thought “wait… i forgot to give my daughter a bath tonight!” i hopped off my bed and started walking to my daughters room but she wasn’t in there i hoped she was not in the pool it was 8 o’ clock at night! I looked out the window and sure enough she was in the pool i came outside shouting at her to “get out of the pool!” she understood and got out looking ashamed i told her to go inside and go to the bathroom. Then when i was about to turn around and go inside i herd laughing not like a adult laugh but a child laugh i turned around and there was a little boy sitting on the side of the pool and after what seemed 1 whole minute of staring he started to form a smile not the type of smile of a real person but a REALLY unsettling smile. I blinked and the boy was gone. I then turned around and just continued with the night but i wouldn’t go to sleep it was just that unsettling smile… i just couldn’t get that image out of my head when sun came up i woke up in my chair by the side of the bed and dint remember anything about last night about the boy so i just continued with my life. 2 days later and i was watching the news and then something came up about a little boy that’s body had been found drowned in a pool and the boy looked exactly as the little boy that i had seen at the side of my pool and it all came back to me. I still don’t know if that little boy was trying to tell me something like where his body was but i don’t consider myself lucky that ill always have a creepy story to tell. But that image up that little boy smiling still gives me the creeps to this day and i will never get that image out of my head but once again it is fresh in my mind.
