My details (at the time)

175cm 62kg
A regular face

Never had a girlfriend, only a few friends

Okay, let me write this down.

At the time I was a first grade university student and living alone, so I didn’t have much money (my allowance from home was also quite small).

I worked part time jobs at family restaurants and convenience stores, but I noticed that home teachers got paid a lot better.

But registering to be a home teacher on the web is a bit of a hassle, isn’t it?

So I got permission from the neighbourhood and started handing out flyers.

I’m pretty sure I had on there that I could teach junior high school students English and Japanese, one hour was 3000 yen, and it had my contact details.

Then a few days later I got a phone call.

It sounded like a middle aged lady.

“I saw your flyer~ Would you be able to come over?” she said.

When I asked her about it she said she was looking for someone to teach her son.

She wanted me to come every day and teach him for four hours.

I was like, are you for real? That’s 12 000 yen a day, awesome!

I should have thought it was a little strange she wanted me to be there for four hours a day every day.

I get it, they kidnap and kill you on the day, and then demand a ransom.
I saw that yesterday.

I saw that too and thought I should start a thread!
Because this story happened about four years ago…

11: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:07:30 ID:agIBjaFPH
Being a home teacher really is a scary job, huh…

8: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:04:52 ID:DJ9qQQei7
She wanted me to come the very next day, so the next day I went over.

It was in the evening (from about 5pm I think) for four hours, so I ate dinner early and went over.

When I arrived at the address a tiny old house was sitting there.

It was also that time of day so it gave off a bit of a creepy atmosphere.

Well, it’s work… I thought, so I timidly rang the door bell.

When I did, I heard the voice of that same middle aged lady from the phone and felt a bit relieved.

When the door opened and I saw her I was at a loss for words.

Her head was full of dandruff.

She had dark bags around her eyes.

Her grin was horrifying.

Instantly I wanted to go back home, but in the end money won out.

Old lady: “Please, come in.” (grin)

“Thank you,” I said and stepped inside. I think my voice was shaking.

I asked her where her son was and she was like, this way, and led me into a further room.

To be honest I was absolutely terrified. I dunno how to explain exactly but the atmosphere the house gave off was really scary.

Reluctantly I followed her further inside and we ended up in what looked like a child’s room.

There was a chest of drawers, a TV, a bed, stuffed toys, toy robots, a study desk…

There looked to be a child sitting at the study desk in the back, but when I walked over to it I suddenly realised.

12: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:07:41 ID:DJ9qQQei7
“Hello!” I said as I approached, but upon closer inspection… it was a doll…

Not just any doll, it appeared to be handmade. It was about the size of a real child and was even wearing regular clothes.

Its face was awful. There were just three dots made of cloth.

In Mario there are these characters called shy guys, right? It looked just like those.

Old lady: “That’s my son.” (grin)

I turned white. This place was dangerous. Really dangerous.

“Uh… that’s a doll… right?” I accidentally spit out.

That was the wrong thing to say.

Old lady: “Huuuuuhhhhh?!?!?!?! What are you saying?!!! That’s my son!!! Ken-kun!!!!”

She suddenly screamed out in a loud voice and began to cry.

This was really bad. She’s probably gonna kill me. I don’t want to die.

I need to end this peacefully somehow and get back home.

“Oh yeah I know! I know!” I said.

“Ken-kun, let’s study!!” When I said this, the old lady started to smile again and returned to normal.

Of course Ken-kun didn’t answer. Why would he? He was a doll after all.

Rather than calling it study, I just turned towards the doll and began talking to it.

Having to do this for another four hours would be hell. Even taking a break for ten minutes was still painful.

“The be verb is here so it becomes this~ This is the conjunctive form so it’s ‘u’ okay~” I went on like this alone for four hours.

The old lady watched from behind the whole time grinning. It was really creepy.

15: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:09:38 ID:2q03lblwb
That’s terrifying.

16: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:09:48 ID:DJ9qQQei7
Somehow I managed to pass the four hours.

“Okay, well let’s finish it there~” I said to Ken-kun.

There was no reply. Of course not. It was a doll.

Old lady: “Well done~ Thank you very much~” (grin)

While thinking about how creepy her grinning face was I got ready to go home.

Old lady: “It’s already late, so why don’t you stay and eat first?” (grin)

No, I ate before I came so I’m alright, I told her.

Besides, any food that came out of this creepy house was bound to be awful.

Old lady: “Please eat!!!!!”

She screamed again. It was so scary. She was mad. But I thought she would kill me, so I reluctantly accepted.

She took me to what looked like the dining room and I sat down in a chair.

She took out a knife and started preparing dinner.

When she took out the knife my heart began to race. I broke out in a cold sweat.

She took out a dirty old pan and began to boil something. It smelled like curry.

Ah, curry. I’m glad it’s something normal, I thought from the bottom of my heart.

Old lady: “Okay, here you are.” (grin)

She put curry onto a dirty plate for me. The spoon was also the type you get free from the convenience store that she was using again.

“Thank you,” I said and timidly began to eat. It was just regular curry. Not awful, not great…

Old lady: “Tastes good, I hope?” (grin)

“Yes! It’s great!” I said in a really loud voice. I was so scared I may have have replied a little too enthusiastically.

Old lady: “I’m glad. Why don’t you stay the night?” (grin)

I had no idea what was going on anymore.

17: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:10:43 ID:VfIQkBZza
Why couldn’t you refuse the food?

20: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:11:44 ID:DJ9qQQei7
Because I was so scared.

“No, really, that’s okay,” I answered.

Old lady: “Ken-kun would be so happy~ Please, stay.” (grin)

“No, it’s okay,” I said again.

Old lady: “Please stay!!! You’ll make Ken-kun sad!!!!”

I was scared. But staying overnight in this house was even scarier. The thought of being killed was even scarier than that.

I had no choice. I decided to stay.

I’d pretend that I was staying and when the opportunity presented itself, I’d run.

It was decided I’d stay with Ken-kun in his room.

Having to sleep in the same room as this creepy doll was most unpleasant.

She put out a futon for me in his room.

Old lady: “Isn’t it great~ You get to sleep with your teacher tonight~” (grin)

I was so scared.

18: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:11:13 ID:2q03lblwb
I don’t get it.

21: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:13:27 ID:agIBjaFPH
Isn’t that confinement…?

23: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:13:50 ID:DJ9qQQei7
Old lady: “The toilet is next to the dining room, so don’t go upstairs okay.” (grin)

First I’d wait for the old lady to go to sleep, so I awaited patiently in Ken-kun’s room.

I lamented that I’d forgotten my phone. If I had that I could call for help.

She’ll fall asleep once it gets late, so I waited some more.

That was around 10.30pm.

I had nothing to do so I just lay there in the futon.

26: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:17:08 ID:DJ9qQQei7
Before I realised it, it was 1am. Looked like I’d fallen asleep.

The old lady has to be asleep by now, so I got ready to make my escape.

I grabbed my bag and began to tip toe to the door.

One step… another step… Only my heartbeat made any sound.

“What are you doing?”

Uh oh… that’s it, I thought. I’m dead.

27: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:17:27 ID:DJ9qQQei7
When I looked over the old lady was sitting behind the dining room door, grinning at me.

No way… she’s been sitting there watching me all this time…?

All the blood drained from my body.

Old lady: “You weren’t trying to go home now, were you?” (grin)

I panicked.

“Uwaaaaaaaaaaa!!!” I screamed and ran towards the back of the house.

There was no window a person could escape from in Ken-kun’s room.

I ran up the stairs as fast as I could.

Dotadotadotadota!! I saw a door in front of me. I opened it. It was pitch black.

I looked for the light switch and turned the lights on. Everything in the room lit up.

The room was full of nothing but stuffed toys and dolls. It was terrifying!!

I was brought to a standstill when suddenly

“Kyakyakyakyakyakya!!!” I could hear a voice screaming from the back of the room.

I looked over and saw something that looked like a person? with a really huge head and eyes that looked like they were gonna pop out.

Our eyes met.


It was terrifying. I wet myself. It was disgusting.

In a panic I opened the second floor window and jumped out.

I didn’t feel any pain. My fear won out over that.

I ran all the way home. That night I couldn’t sleep, and my foot was in so much pain that the next day I went to the hospital and found out I’d broken my left ankle.

Afterwards I moved away and didn’t go there again. I didn’t want to go there again.

I wonder what it was I saw in that room?

The end.

28: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:18:40 ID:jey5ysCe1
Perhaps it was a disabled person locked up?

32: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:20:30 ID:DJ9qQQei7
I thought it might have been the real Ken-kun. Maybe he was a handicapped kid and the doll was her way of escaping reality…

29: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:18:47 ID:RcNiQtX6w
Wow that’s terrifying, haha.

30: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:18:55 ID:agIBjaFPH
So scary.

33: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:21:47 ID:DJ9qQQei7
When I said I moved, I meant I moved away from that town entirely.

If you have any questions, I’m happy to answer them.

34: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:22:15 ID:jey5ysCe1
Do you remember where that house is?

37: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:23:24 ID:DJ9qQQei7
Kind of.
I forgot the exact address though.

35: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:22:37 ID:VfIQkBZza
In the end did you get the money?

38: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:23:57 ID:DJ9qQQei7
Returning home safely was more than enough.

36: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:22:44 ID:dHk9aLaVg
Was it hydrocephalus?

41: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:25:08 ID:DJ9qQQei7
Maybe, his head was really, really big.
Like it was gonna explode.

39: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:24:56 ID:jey5ysCe1
I’m sure it was really scary, but no doubt it was Ken-kun locked away on the second floor.

Was he really there in the dark all that time?
He was probably happy to see another person after so long.

42: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:26:04 ID:DJ9qQQei7
The more I think about it the scarier it gets…

44: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:26:53 ID:lfysAOZOU
I was just kidding.
That’s the first time in a while I’ve been so scared.

40: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:25:05 ID:lfysAOZOU
I’ve foooound you~

42: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:26:04 ID:DJ9qQQei7
Quit it…

43: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:26:46 ID:wnJtOEtzv
What prefecture was this?

45: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:27:04 ID:DJ9qQQei7
Kanto region.

47: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:31:25 ID:wnJtOEtzv
Was it Chiba?

48: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:32:48 ID:DJ9qQQei7
Do you live in Chiba?
Never fear! It wasn’t Chiba.

51: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:37:21 ID:JrNj686dD
What an interesting story.
Anyway, did you change your phone number?

52: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:40:34 ID:DJ9qQQei7
I blocked her number and changed mine soon after!

55: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:53:02 ID:MXh05JNfs
This isn’t something you should read on the street at night.

I decided I’m not gonna walk and read my phone anymore.

56: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:53:27 ID:DJ9qQQei7
Are there no more questions?

Well I’m gonna go to bed now, if you’re gonna be a home teacher make sure you’re really careful.

See ya.

58: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/06(日)03:29:31 ID:jJGIHsjDD
Been a long time since a scary story gave me goosebumps.

22: 名無しさん@おーぷん 2014/07/04(金)22:13:44 ID:JrNj686dD
Man that’s scary.
But the fact you could make this thread means that you’re still alive.
I’m relieved.
