This story happened to me this summer. I’m 12 years old and this happened about three months after my twelfth birthday. I know, not relevant but I just wanted to let you know approximately how old I would’ve been when this happened. I was visiting my dad for the weekend and we were staying at his girlfriend’s house in another town. It was about 8:30 when we decided to run to the Dollar General a few blocks away from Kayla’s (my dad’s girlfriend) house to get some groceries.
My dad piled my sister, my brother, and I into the car and we headed off for the store. When we got there, everything seemed normal. We walked in the store, my siblings had already started complaining about wanting candy and snacks, and we basically just walked around as usual.
After about 15 minutes, I saw some guy, probably in his mid 40’s or early 50’s walking behind us. I didn’t think anything of it, I just assumed he was getting some groceries just like us. The man began talking to himself, but I still brushed it off because hey, we’ve all done it.
