At the end of the road is a big old mansion that could house several families but it only has two inhabitants Old rich Mrs Poppel and her butler Adam Mrs Poppel was never much of a smiler but there doesn't seem to be a mean bone in her If children kick a ball into her garden she doesn't make a fuzz just nods at them and watch as they retrieve it Most days people can see her embroide own little ring by the window seemingly caught up in her She is peculiar but never bothers anyone She's just an old lady who spends her days sowing and socializing at the local book club Tell your sister I hope she gets well soon Adam is quite different Always smiling and friendly Always ready to help if he has the time He's incredibly popular in townF not to mention at the pub when he has a few hours off He drinks laughs and sings and can even be talked into playing the guitar if asked enough times Women love him too but he just winks at them and jokes that he's committed to Mrs Poppel It's his own fault that people started spreading rumors that he was really Mrs s live-in lover who had been put to work around the house Typically Adam he just played along I don't kiss and tell When some drunk lads saw him walk arm in arm with Mrs Poppel down the street no doubt to steady her they teasingly shouted Taking your sweetheart out fora stroll?! while making kissing sounds been up to now? l looked up at him like What have you They're an odd pair but they seem happy together in the big house Pork? Again? I'm sorry Mrs Im still waiting for a delivery Adam even does things not expected of a butler like gardening while she rests in a sun chair which has only added fuel to the rumors SU way Adam d every once in a while something incredible happens Mrs smiles No one knows how Adam does it but neither is it a surprise to anyone It l An Only one truly odd thing has ever happened to them One night a neighbor saw a man sneaking around the house testing the cellar windows The bedroom That's where old ladies keep all the good stuff She didn't see him get in but suddenly he was gone so she grabbed the phone and called the police just to be safe What!? She's still home? That means her boy-toy has to be somewhere in the house too- Huh? Adam opened the door dressed in a robe when the police rang the doorbell He woke up Mrs Poppel and together they could confirm that the house hadn't been broken into The officers couldn't find anything out of the ordinary but gave Mrs Poppel a number to call if they saw anything The following day a man by the name Eric was reported missing He had lived a rough life of petty crime and robbery and sometimes didn't contact his friends or family for weeks so it was impossible to say when exactly he disappears It could have been that same day or two weeks prior People wondered if maybe he had been the man sneaking around outside Mrs Poppel's house but everyone agreed that it was probably just a coincidence After all people like him went missing all the time in the surrounding towns And even if it was him what did it matter? Mrs Poppel and Adam were good eople who were loved by the whole town There was no reason to cause trouble for them no matter what their relationship was Besides Mrs Poppel had one of her good weeks after that night seeming a lot more cheerful and happy It would be a shame to ruin it thehumon I’m not entirely sure if this story has a supernatural element to it or not Are they just run of the mill cannibals or vampiresdemons? Occultists? Maybe only Adam? So many possibilities I also struggled a lot with Adam’s looks I wanted him to look like an honest to god nice charming guy who also looked super creepy in the right wrong? light There was supposed to be a whole backstory about Mrs Poppel’s husband and when Adam came into her life but I decided to leave it out as it was already pretty text heavy Meme
