story 1There was a young boy named Kenneth who lived with his parents at the top floor of a residential building. When Kenneth came home from school, he had to take a long elevator ride to the 25th floor. One evening, when he arrived home from school, he saw some other boys who lived in the same building and noticed that they avoided the elevator altogether. He caught up with them as they walked up the stairs.
When he asked the boys why they weren’t taking the elevator, they told him about some rumors about a kid who had gone missing in the residential building only a few months before he and his parents moved in. Kenneth had a sinking feeling in his stomach as he listened to the story the older boys told him. They said the kid had mysteriously disappeared and nobody was able to find him. He was still listed as a missing person. The adults thought he must have been kidnapped and the police were still investigating
When Kenneth reached the top of the stairs, he ran into his apartment and breathlessly told his mother about the unsettling stories the older boys had shared with him. She just laughed and said that there was no such thing as a haunted elevator and it was childish to believe such outlandish tales.
One evening, Kenneth came home late after football practice. He was deathly tired and was really dreading having to climb the stairs. He walked into the lobby of the residential building and breathed a sigh of relief when he saw his mother standing there, with her back to him, waiting for the elevator. The doors opened and she stepped inside. Kenneth jumped in after her
The elevator doors closed and that’s when he realized that the light wasn’t working. They were in complete darkness. Kenneth broke out into a cold sweat. In the darkness, the frightened boy heard an eerie chuckling sound. “Mom, did you hear that?”, he asked nervously. As the elevator ascended, the chuckling grew louder. It sounded like evil laughter. “That’s the sound I told you about, Mom!”, he said, shaking with fear
A chill ran down his spine when he heard a deep voice reply “You really believed I was your mother?”
