It first began about 3 weeks ago. I had just gotten out of the shower and was standing at the sink, brushing my teeth, wearing nothing but a large, fluffy white towel and still dripping water on the floor. I lived an average life up until that day and I haven't had an average day since. When I first heard the childlike voice calling out, I thought it was someone outside. Dropping my toothbrush, I ran to the window and looked out but the street was deserted. Funny, I thought. Must be some kids playing somewhere nearby or something.
Later that night, I was awoken but I knew not by what. Until I heard it again.
Help meeeeee
The voice of a small child calling out for help. I jumped out of bed and stood at the window, looking out. The street was illuminated by the nearby lamp pole but there was no one out there. Then it came again, louder this time.
Help meeeee
It almost sounded like it was coming from my house, but that can't be right. I've never even had a child in here. I dismissed it from my thoughts and headed for the bathroom to relieve my bladder when I heard it again. Much louder and much clearer.
Help meeeee
This time, after a bit of searching and listening, I was able to pinpoint the source. The voice was coming from the drain in the bathroom sink. I quickly ran to the kitchen and threw open the door to the basement, flipping on the light switch, and ran down the stairs.
"Don't worry," I called out. "I'm comin'. Where are you?"
Just as I reached the bottom step, I dimly heard the voice again. This time it appeared to be coming from upstairs. I climbed the steps and went in search of the child in need. Once again, It sounded like the voice as coming from the drain in my sink. Impossible, I thought. How could a voice be coming from the sink when no one is in the basement. A person couldn't fit in the small pipe, not even a hand could fit in there. But there it was, a small and defensless voice crying out for help.
I start to worry. Maybe I'm losing my mind. Living alone all these years couldn't have been good for me. But I've never heard of this happening to anyone before. Still, I can't call the police, what if I am insane? I can't go to work, what if I go and it crawls out? So now I sit here before the sink and listen to the voice. The crying gets louder each day, not exactly louder but closer. Maybe the child will come out of the drain. If it does, I'm ready. I have a baseball bat and a chainsaw for it.
