about this story

The car hummed as I drove to my favorite spot to go think and relax. I walked along the coastline of the beach for hours and felt the cold water wash against my feet. "What are you doing out here so late?" A familiar voice asked. I quickly turned around to see my brother Alex, who was standing only a few feet from me. "Why are following m-" I began to say but got distracted by what looked like a little blonde girl standing by the trees not to far from the beach we were at. "What are staring at?" Alex said confused. "There's a girl standing there" I said quietly. "What are you talking about? There's no one there" He said. Alex grabbed my hand firmly and pulled me away. It startled me so a looked away for a second. When I looked back, she was gone. We both agreed it was time to go home. The next morning after breakfast Alex pulled me aside and wanted me to tell him exactly what I saw. "It was late, I was probably just really tired and my mind was playing tricks on me" I reassured him. "I don't know. You just seemed genuinely scared" Alex said. "Just forget about it" I said shrugging it off. "Are you coming Katrina?" Mom yelled. "I have to go. Mom and I are going to get a manicure" I said getting up and waving him goodbye. Later that night I was about to go to sleep when we got a call on our house phone. It was our neighbor Ms. Jones. She asked us if we have seen her daughter. It was strange because Ms. Jones husband died a few days ago and now she suddenly has a daughter. "The last time I saw her was two days ago. Alex and I both looked at each other and we knew we were both thinking the same thing. "What does you daughter look like Ms. Jones?" I asked. "Her name is Samantha. She has blonde hair with brown eyes" Ms. Jones said. "Thank you" I said and hung up the phone. "So she is just a little girl?" I said. "But- why would just stand there. Not ask for help or anything. It's suspicious" Alex said trying to process the situation. About a month passed by and we almost completely forgot about what happened. Until, there was a police report about a young girl about 10 years old who fit the description perfectly. The only scary thing is, she died 25 years ago. The lore is she visits women and tells them she'll be their little girl only if they get rid of their husbands. But sooner or later she gets rid of the women too and she visits other houses for her next victim.
