While baby-sitting the new neighbors’ children for the first time, Katie answered the phone with a quiet “Hello.” As I waited for her next response she gave a cautious look and handed me the phone. I put my ear to the phone I heard a deep man’s voice say “Is Mrs. Vandershmit home.” I worried about what to say. I can’t tell a stranger I am by myself with the kids. So I said the first thing that came to mind. “Umm… Mrs. Vandershmit is busy right now. Can I please take a message?” With his scary voice next he says, “Oh really but this urgent. HAHAHA I will be right over then.” “HAHAHA Have a nice night.”

Still walking back to the living room, she was beginning to get jumpy.

Katie just turned 14 and just got a job from the new neighbors a couple of miles down. They had two kids, 2-year-old Kyle and 4-year-old Haylee. She’s baby-sitting at their house all by herself because her friend Jessica couldn’t make it over. Their house was miles from everything or anyone. She got there around 7 p.m. because their parents were going partying for the night. She fed them dinner and let them play for a little while. Finally they wore themselves out and fell asleep.
