While baby-sitting the new neighbors children for the first time, Katie answered the phone and someone said in a deep scary voice, "I'm watching you."
Katie immediately said, "What do you want?" And he hung up the phone. Sitting the phone down she ran up the stairs to check on the children. When she opened the door she started to cry because the kids were not in their room. She shut their door and started yelling for them. "John, Jason where are you?" They didn't answer. She decided to run back downstairs and call the police. He already got to it and cut the phone lines.
Taking a moment to think she remembered that she had her cell phone. As she were to get it out of her jacket it rang. She answered it. "I'm outside watching you right now." What do you want form me?" She asked. "Well let's see, I have the children so now I want you." He said. "Give me the children please, they're only kids." He hung up the phone.
She had no idea what she was going to do now so she ran and locked herself in the bathroom. Crying really hard her phone rang again. "I want to calm down because April Fools." As they ran into the house she was still in the bathroom scared to death. They ran in there and hugged her and she forgave them. They are still friends today.
