In 1987 in Kansas City, Missouri, it was the end of my summer break and my step-sister had been babysitting the neighbor’s boys of the usual family she babysat. She had been watching them for the past week as a favor while the Mom was in court during a divorce hearing. The babysitting job was supposed to be for two weeks, however, the mother ended up coming home a bit early and stated that she no longer needed a babysitter for the following week.

These stories do not originate from a single writer’s mind, but rather from a collective consciousness based in a dark, grim reality.
