Crybaby Bridge

One night when Jaz and Jack are bored they decide to go out deep in the woods to crybaby bridge. They wanna see for themselves… and the myths true?


3. Chapter 3

We went onto the bridge and looked over the edge down at the running water. I walked over to the edge and sat on it, letting my feet hang over the bridge. Jack came and leaned by the edge next to me. We could hear the wind whistling through the trees around us. The moon was almost full, bright in the sky.

"Hey why exactly do they call this 'Crybaby Bridge'?" Jack asked. I forgot Jack wasn't at our school at the beginning of high school, so he never heard any of the myths that went around the school about this place.

"Oh yeah! You never heard about the stories!" I said with a smirk. "Come sit next to mama, darling and I'll tell you." I said with a funny accent while patting at the spot next to me on the edge.

I began to tell him the story… "They say long ago, when times were hard and some people couldn't take care of themselves and their family. Most tried everything they could do for their families, most tried. But, there was this one lady who cared for herself and only herself, not even her baby. So one day, when times were getting very hard she decided it was too much. So she wrapped her baby up, and brought it deep into the woods. She wondered all the way out to this very bridge. Coming up to it, she looked over the edge, and without hesitation she just threw the baby over into the running water. Then just walked away like nothing happened. People claim that the guilt and haunting of the baby spirit drove her insane and she ended up jumping off this bridge to her death. They say now, at night you can hear the crying of the baby…"

"Wow, that's some crazy shit" Jack said wide-eyed. "I'll be right back, I gotta take a piss"

"Ew Jack, why didn't you before we left! Just hurry because it's getting late." I yelled as he started walking into the woods to pee.

The wind really started picking up, so I wrapped my arms around me shivering. "Where the hell is Jack? He left 15 minutes ago to piss, it doesn't take that long for guys to pee!" I started walking into the wooded area Jack headed in earlier. "Jack! Jack!" I started yelling. "I swear if you try scaring me, I'm gonna kick your ass!" I pulled out my phone to use it as a flashlight. After taking a few steps I heard a noise behind me. Quickly whipping around to see what it was, nothing was there.

"Jack?" I said softly. Then a hand went over my mouth and pulled me back. I started kicking and attempting to scream…
