Death by Fear
The following is the true story I was told by one of my friends. Truthfully, I hope you are ready for this because it is one of those bizarre and scary yet sad stories.
Events took place in the middle of the 20th century to my friend’s family. It was evening when parents put their daughter to sleep and soon they went to bed as well. In the middle of the night, parents were awoken from their sleep by their daughter.“I’m scared” – she said. Parents brushed her off probably thinking their daughter had a nightmare or that, whatever it is she was afraid of, was nothing but child’s imagination. Therefore they did what majority of parents would have done.“There is nothing to be afraid of. Go to sleep” – they said.The girl listened to her parents and went back to her bedroom. The entire house fell asleep again. However, soon after parents were awoken from their sleep by their daughter one more time.“I’m scared” – that’s all she said once again. Parents tried to convince her that there is nothing to be afraid of. Eventually they sent the girl back to her room. She left. The house fell asleep.The morning comes. The parents wake up and continue on with their daily routine. After a while they noticed that their daughter is not waking up so they went to check on her. You guessed it. As they went to check on the girl, they found her dead lying in her bed.
No one ever knew what exactly happened to the young girl. There were no signs of trauma or anything that would indicate the reason for her death. The only thing we know is that she was afraid. However, we do not know of what or who exactly was she afraid of.
