For me there have been a few but the most recent is a girl that lived next door to me several years ago. She is now working at a coffee shop owned by the same company I work for, but it wasn’t until a couple of visits to the café I began to realize she knew me. During that visit she hinted we knew each other but didn’t say where or when and made it obvious it was up to me to remember. After a few move visits and hints I still had no idea until she said, “ok well do you remember when you lived in *********** in the house at the end of ******** Street. I lived beside you with my parents”. That immediately reminded me of who she was and how annoying she was, although I didn’t tell her that.
At the time she was quite young and used to come over a lot with one of her friends. I became good friend with her parents, and we spent quite a lot of time at each other’s houses, so her visits didn’t seem suspicious at the time. That was until today when she came out with my coffee and sat down at the table where I was seated. After talking about the time I spent living beside her she said “I shouldn’t tell you this but do you want to know what my friend and I used to do” when I replied “yeah ok” she said, “we both really liked you and used to spy on you in your bathroom by laying on the roof of the garden shed looking through the trees between the shed and your house”. That came as quite a surprise, but it got even more interesting when she said admitted to having a key to my house and sneaking in “a lot” while I was at work.
Suddenly the realization of just how much she must have known hit me and I just sat there with no idea what to say next. With that she stood up and said, “its ok your secret is safe with me, besides your not the only one”. As she walked back into the café, she looked at me and said, “hope I haven’t scared you off, see you next time”.
Her admissions really stunned me, and I have spent the afternoon thinking about what she said. Its also made me wonder if the odd occurrences in that house now have an explanation.
