    The Gift

    Posted by u/ashersladegregory:

    I’ve always had the supernatural ability to know where someone was by looking at a photo of them.

    So it pained me to tell the mother of a missing child that her daughter was in several different places.

     "Look dad, the sharkies are so big!," my son said gleefully, pointing towards the glass.

    "Yes they are, champ," I said as I held back my tears and pulled him into the driver's seat for one last hug before the windows broke in.

    I work at a crematorium loading bodies into the furnace.

    You'd be surprised at how many times you hear screams after the furnace door closes.

    'See If You Can Catch It'

    Posted by u/bigboisexyboi:

    It sounds like an ice cream truck baby, go outside and see if you can catch it," I said to my daughter.

    As I pushed her out of the door and hurried down to the basement, I could still hear the nuclear siren wailing and was well aware I only had enough supplies for one person.

    In his last days, Grandpa would weep and rave about the fires of Hell, and I wondered how such a good man could fear such a thing.

    After the funeral I found the photographs, and learned for the first time that his days in Buchenwald had not been spent as a prisoner.

    'Behind Her'

    Posted by u/inhalesomcal:

    The teacher looked confused as the children motioned frantically about the man crawling out the closet behind her.

    Too bad she muted all the kids so they wouldn’t talk over her story.
