A Brief History
What follows is (as far as we are aware) a continuation of a work of fiction written several years ago by a young lady interested in the supernatural in the style of the stories found in Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (1981) or a more modern creepypasta. For Chapter 1, please click here.
Digging Deeper: Full text of Chapter 4 of The Nightmare of the Baby Head
There once was a 6-year-old boy named Jason, who loved playing with his Sonic the Hedgehog toys and dressing up as Sonic for Halloween. What he would not love is that he is the tenth kid of our sad story.
On a particular evening, as the day began to end, Jason said, “Hi, Mommy.”
The mom asked in reply, “Hello. Do you want anything to eat?”
“No thank you. I’m going up in my room to play with Sonic and his friends,” said Jason.
When Jason was upstairs he saw something move in his closet. He went to go see what was moving, but nothing was there aside from a baby head and some outfits…or so he thought. He soon spotted nine practically mummified human heads on the floor!
“Why are there heads in my closet!!!” screamed Jason in terror. Although seeming urgent when the mom came running upstairs, her urgency changed to a peculiar calmness when she entered her son’s room.
“Oh… they are nothing,” said the mom, “Now go to bed.” The mom then tucked in Jason.
When she left, the closet door opened. The baby head came out of the closet and floated in the air. Jason got out of bed and started attacking the baby head with his Sonic toy. Then Jason grabbed the baby head, opened the window, and threw it out. The mom rushed in and saw Jason out of bed.
“What are you doing?” asked the mom as she rushed to the closet to look for the baby head.
“There was a big baby head in my closet! It was about to kill me!” shrieked a scared and crying Jason.
“Go to sleep!” ordered the mom. Both of them went to bed and did not see the baby head for the rest of that night.
