The family next door disappeared. The answer to their vanishing is in the woods.
2023.05.28 13:55 Colt_Leasure The family next door disappeared. The answer to their vanishing is in the woods.
I live in a suburb surrounded by forest. My house is in a row of other properties built next to a tree line. The neighborhood was always quiet. The sounds of crickets, birds, and sight of black bears were routine on most summer days.
The scenic area was something I was always grateful for. I lived completely alone since the death of my parents. An accidental fire took both of their lives. Once I collected my inheritance, I relocated to a much more peaceful region. I had always fantasized about moving there.
I tried to start a relationship with Samantha. I had gone to High School with her sixteen years before. She had gone on to become a respected Detective. My attempt at something long lasting with her failed. She was too career oriented. I was reeling from grief. Focusing on building something meaningful with her was a pipe dream.
Things around my community changed once the Murphy family went missing.
The first sign that something was off on that Wednesday was how their blinds had closed. Their silver Chevy Chrysler remained parked in the driveway.
A tennis instructor at the country club noticed the wife of that house did not show up for the program. He called their number to make sure everything was alright. When no one responded, he notified the authorities. Rumors abounded immediately among the home owners association about an alleged affair. The gossip only furthered when the married couple and their three kids were not found in the abode.
I watched from my balcony as the patrolmen roped the place off with caution tape. The domicile was a three story building with brick chimney’s and a few peaked roofs in the style of English towers. They were beige, light blue and crimson.
On the morning of the Murphy’s desertion of society, the architecture became a hollow image. It was one that was once filled with activity and life.
The law did what they could. Any success they may have had in the investigation was secret. A few months passed by and they removed the caution tape.
I followed the on-line police logs. The weather was pristine and clear the day they vanished. The fact that there were no witnesses to what direction they may have gone disturbed me.
I had heard how the man, Frank Murphy, had a bit of a temper and always had a bourbon in hand. I had heard mutual friends describe him as an alcoholic in denial of his servitude to liquor. He was an indignant individual who knew no true repercussions for his behavior. He always had bail money from a software company he founded and sold a long time ago.
I was never close to that family, but I peered out at their vacant house far more than I ever had. I was in need of an answer. What could have happened?
I called Samantha one evening as I sat on my bed, wondering how she would respond to my reaching out. We were never argumentative or on bad terms. I still worried about her reaction, and hoped it would not be a dismissive one.
I heard her say hello. Her voice still impressed me. I had almost forgotten how silky her tone was. I knew it could change to a much firmer pitch when she was interviewing a suspect.
“Hi, Sam. I’d like to know if you’d be free tomorrow for a cup of coffee. We can go to that place, The Bean Field, off Pond road. It’s been a while and I know you have a lot to tell me about what’s new in your life.”
There was a pause on the other end, and for a second a bout of anxiety hit me. I judged my own words as robotic, stilted, and sure to push her away. I reasoned she was summoning an excuse to get out of having to interact with me. How dare I presume she would even entertain the notion of having a meeting.
“That sounds great,” she said. “Tomorrow is my day off, luckily for you. I’m in the middle of an incident right now. It’s a five car pile-up about forty minutes from where you live. I’ve gotta run. I’ll see you tomorrow.”
When she hung up, I was triumphant. I looked at our old text conversations. I realized we had not been in communication with each other for over twelve months. Now was my opportunity to reconcile that gap of unintended avoidance. I knew it would be an undeserved opportunity.
I sat outside of the cafe the next morning at a black metal table. I had a view of rolling hills dotted with trees. A highway with multitudinous shrubberies sat on either side of it. I sipped a piccolo latte while waiting for her.
When she arrived and stepped out of her hatchback in the parking lot, her appearance floored me. She had not dressed up for our supposed date, but that did not make a difference. She had arrived from the gym and wore shorts and a top set. She donned a gray and green hoodie.
She sat across from me and reached for the menu.
“Can you go to the front and order me avocado toast?” Samantha asked. “I’ll also take a mocha with a few shots of espresso. Please.”
I did exactly that. When I returned with her items, she apologized for consuming her meal in less than two minutes.
“I hadn’t eaten since five PM yesterday,” she said between sips.
“I understand,” I said. “I doubt you ever have a consistent schedule anymore.”
“You’re right, but that’s why I have to enjoy my free time when I can.”
We settled into talking about what had happened since we last saw each other. I referenced my trying to learn another language (French) with the hopes of moving to Europe or Canada.
After fifteen minutes of small talk, I asked her about work, but I did so with caution. It started with me wondering about what the call she was on when we were on the phone was about.
“A drunk driver blew a stop sign and hit two other vehicles,” she said. “It was ugly. A few people died. We’ll see if the man in silk pajamas gives him the proper sentence or a traffic citation.”
“You know, I’m curious about what happened to the Murphy’s, if they’re hurt or not.”
“You and everyone else,” she said. “We’ve been getting so many witness accounts, and so far they’ve all been bogus. All I know is what I saw when I got there.”
“I didn’t know you were one of the responders,” I said.
“Yeah. Something about the place was off from the moment I walked in. I found heavy items in placed they should not have been in. The toolbox was not in the garage but on the second story. A disassembled snowblower lay scattered everywhere in pieces. The oven door was on their bed. Frank Murphy was not the strongest guy in the world, either. For him to cause the kind of property damage I saw doesn’t make a lot of sense. At the risk of sounding crazy, inexplicable things happened when I was there.”
“I was under the impression that something was playing a trick on me. Electrical outlets sparked a few times out of nowhere. The ceiling fan would go from still to spinning when I looked up at it. Books would fall off of the shelves. A volume on black magic, of all things, almost hit the top of my head when I walked on by. Another book about fairies collapsed with it.”
“So the home intruder set up a bunch of weird diversions,” I said. “I’ve heard of that before. These killers or kidnappers want the victims to think there was more than one of them. It’s so their account’s disputed in court.”
I’ll tell you right now,” she said, “we didn’t find any outside DNA.”
“So it’s a case of family annihilation,” I said as I took a long swig of my beverage. “I don’t know if you can substantiate the facts, but a few people have said that Emily had a big life insurance policy. Frank knew about. He may have been using steroids and having an affair, and that could have contributed to-“
It occurred to me that she eyed me with suspicion, as though I was digging too deep. I could also tell she regretted letting information about the forensic results slip.
She stood up and stared at me with a flash of anger in her eyes.
“I thought you wanted to piece something back together with me,” she said. “I didn’t know you wanted to play armchair investigator like every true crime fan. You know, your parents were kind. I wish you’d follow their example. I’ll let you get the bill.”
She walked back to her vehicle and I knew it would be a while before we conversed again.
Later that night, I stared out my window at the Murphy home. I saw a star shoot across the sky, and it almost seemed ready to plummet into the side of their house.
The next evening, I took a walk around the suburb. I spotted a thin line of dried red fluid along a path which led into the woods.
I was attempting to get in some movement to get my mind off of the events of the day before. Negativity and self-deprecation were all-consuming. I felt the need for a long saunter to try and release some of the meandering and pessimistic energy I accrued.
When I saw the carmine ribbon along the dark soil, a sense of worry filled me. I was not that far removed from a cul-de-sac with palatial manors a block away. There was no way I could speculate on me being the first to see it.
Could it be a hint where they are? I thought.
The notion seemed absurd, a reach.
I had read in the local newspaper that there was an uptick in bobcat sightings due to recent wildfires. The animals relocated during prior summers. I reasoned it could have been a house pet which became a victim after it got snatched away into the overgrowth.
I followed it, and the uneven road of red stretched on past many bushes and over logs. A shrill chirping in the background became louder. I moved between two conifers with petrified wood and found myself in a part of the forest I had never been in.
There were so many branches that it blacked out the falling sun. Ahead of me was a clearing. A swarm of gnats and mosquitos descended upon it. The sea of insects soared together in chaotic unison as a wave among the sedges and lichen.
I looked towards the right of the meadow and saw a ramshackle tree house. I trailed the red line towards it. I peered in through one of the windows and saw a statue of a woman with wings. I knew she was not an angel. There was no halo, nor were her organs of flight feathery, but rather they were thin and bat-like.
I entered the place knowing the danger I was putting myself in. I had tracked mud in and was oblivious to the incriminating actions I partook in. I was trespassing and risking stumbling into whoever may have owned the land. My curiosity got the better of me and caused me to keep moving forward.
The room was sparse but decorated. The walls had carvings of men and women, also with wings. Their bodies held yogic-like positions as they reached out to one another mid-air.
A piece of parchment with a few words sat in the corner. I picked it up and read it:
‘Humans are the greatest living beings to play tricks on. Especially when they go through a time of drought and extreme cold.’
I sat it down where I found it, unsure of what to make of it.
I touched the central figure’s neck. The chiseling was not only cold, but below freezing, as though I had submerged my hand in a polar pool.
The noise of some kind of bird attempting to escape a confined space reverberated below me.
Something brushed against my leg. I looked down and saw an army of glow bugs float up between the cracks, and they circled around me. They were like dragon flies. At the time I had labeled them as such, but in reality their shapes were far too humanoid.
I walked back home. I went to bed and slept. I was still perturbed at the wine-colored avenue and cabin.
I awoke in the middle of the night after something tapped at my walls from the outside. I peered out and saw the Murphy home, and observed how the blinds over their casements were wide open. A hive of mites filled every inch of the interior.
I found the decomposing body of a chipmunk stuffed into the tailpipe of my vehicle the next day.
This horrified me, because the deliberation of the act was too evident to ignore. While I did have a surveillance camera on my porch, the coverage of my vehicle was non-existent. I calmed myself down by thinking it was likely a tempestuous child. I retrieved a pair of medical gloves and disposed of the creature before going on with the errand. The rotting body had a horrible smell. It was like an onion left out in humidity for days, and my stomach turned as I sealed it off in the garbage with the lid.
The next morning, I looked in my closet. Some of my favorite shirts had disintegrated. Holes and patches of destroyed fabric littered them. I found it odd, and even searched on-line for possible answers before I decided it had to be a moth infestation. I sprayed lavender. Information on a website statEd that was a cure-all, but the problem persisted. It bothered me that I had not seen a single aphid, but I pushed that concern away.
A few days afterward, when I had tossed my disheveled pieces of attire, the power in my house went out. This was not such an unusual occurrence during the heavy winter months. For it to occur in the summer was strange.
It was a rolling blackout. Once my house had electricity again, I noticed how someone moved items around.
Something turned my kitchen table on its side and stuffed into a part of the kitchen I would have never placed it in.
I grabbed a butcher knife and did a sweep of the premises, and I did not find anything. There were no footprints or signs of anything else tampered with. When I got to the second story, birds nested along the tree tops, and the repugnant odor of fish attacked me.
My allergies became insufferable over the next month. Nothing purchased over the counter which helped it.
I went to the beach on an overcast day. After roughly half a mile of walking, I saw an illustration someone had drawn in the sand with a stick. It was of a being with airfoils.
A light precipitation had fallen earlier. As I trailed along the former part of the sand, a glint in the corner of my eye caught my attention. I looked out at the water and saw what appeared to be a light blue outline of wings beneath the surface.
A phosphorescent wall of creatures surrounded me.
As the days march on, I know I am stalked by something I cannot rebel against, let alone have any agency or autonomy over. My pillowcases have shredded, the pipes in my basement have burst, and someone left me a gift at my front door. When I opened it, I saw mice scurry away. It was a book, and it was one about the history of fairies.
I picked it up and had to blow the dust off of it. Someone had stolen it from a musty subterranean chamber and brought it here.
I theorized that it was Samantha, passive aggressive with her disappointment in me. Yet I flip through its pages and find it all too familiar. I cannot help but wonder if this is a sign of something far more dangerous.

I can’t remember if it was a manwha or a novel but I distinctly recall that the main problem was that the ML looked scary but he was actually just super shy and socially constipated.
FL at one point helps him in a shop choose a gift for someone (a sister?), because he almost got scammed. If i recall correctly, he was attempting to buy a music box.
Sorry this is vague :(

2023.05.28 08:23 thehappiestdad BingGPT4's interesting answer to "Heat or Celtics"
| || |
I recently engaged in an entertaining interaction with Microsoft's BingGPT4 client. submitted by thehappiestdad to Bing_ChatGPT [link] [comments]
Intriguingly, my first conversation with BingGPT4 started by testing its ability to process current events. I asked a seemingly straightforward question, "Who won tonight's Boston vs. Miami game?" This wasn't a historical trivia question but a live test to assess if BingGPT4 could deliver a timely and accurate response like it said it could.
BingGPT4's reply unfolded a fascinating paradox. It harkened back to a college basketball game from January 11th, 2023, between the Miami Hurricanes and the Boston College Eagles, providing the scoreline, 88-72 in favor of Miami, and even the leading players: Isaiah Wong for Miami and DeMarr Langford Jr. for Boston. The degree of accuracy was astonishing, akin to a well-stored historical archive coming to life.
However, the context was significantly misplaced. We were in May, with the NBA season being the only active basketball series. Considering this, and the date of the query, May 27th, 2023, BingGPT4's response, albeit precise in detail, seemed a contextual misfit. The exhaustive reasons discounting the NCAA game as a plausible response, especially given that college basketball invariably culminates with March Madness in early April, cast a peculiar light on BingGPT4's reply.
When I presented the same question to my 10-year-old son, his answer, though not identifying the victor, correctly contextualized the query to the ongoing NBA match. This child's simple intuition made BingGPT4's misinterpretation even more striking.
This situation simultaneously showcased BingGPT4’s impressive precision in recollecting detailed information and its struggle with deciphering the intended context. This stark duality in AI behavior brought to mind Rainman, capable of swiftly counting 396 fallen toothpicks from a box of 400 or instantly answering comlex division, yet unable to answer "what is 2+2?"
This episode serves as a compelling glimpse into the complexities and challenges of AI's context understanding. It underscores the fascinating enigma that AI continues to be, as it advances, stumbles, learns, and evolves.

2023.05.28 05:54 slimjim258 2014 Trimbach Gewurtztraminer Vendages Tardives
| || |
Mmmm. This is my first encounter with late-harvest gewurtz, and it does not disappoint. Drinking this, it occurs to me that beautiful aromas are at once sweet and tart, inviting and withholding. And what is gewurtztraminer if not aromatic? Suffice it to say this stuff has me trying and failing to wax poetic about it on the internet. submitted by slimjim258 to wine [link] [comments]
It has this tart raspberry-brioche-potpourri thing going on on the palate (I’ve never tasted lychee or white flowers but yeah I’ll buy that this is what those things kinda taste like), with bright acidity, red fruit sweetness, and a tiny beautiful yeasty funk all playing together and having fun :)
This isn’t intended as a serious and sober review (final grades came out today, 4.0 babyyy I’m killin grad school🤙), but I’m having a very nice evening with some very nice wine and just wanted to share that with y’all.
2023.05.28 05:51 Fun-Whereas-8982 31[M4F] Here I go again, trying this out! Looking for a genuine connection and fellow ice cream enthusiast.
I am posting to see if I can find someone to share the future with! I would love to share stories, share interests, and be there for one another! Tell me your story, and I will tell you mine. I believe in going deep and not cutting corners. Physical attraction is real, but real attraction grows with love and care.
Currently I work for a rather large insurance company. My long-term goals are to open a book, board game and wine bar, a place where you can read and drink wine, which are two of my favorite things. The books would be free, and we would be active in helping those in needs which is a big thing in my aspirations. I have a small catering company that does small time events and gatherings.
Most days, you can find me outdoors, by the ocean, or working in the garden. I enjoy the arts, music, and the occasional reality show! I would consider myself to be an active person, but I won’t pass up a cookie. Being healthy and happy is something I value. Family is very important to me.
In a partner, I like someone who has goals and dreams. I value loyalty and honesty. Someone who appreciates silly romantic gestures. Someone who doesn’t mind going on adventures but who is just at home have lazy days. I could go on and on, but I would love to have a conversation, and hopefully we can get a spark going.
To help, here’s some fun facts about me. If any of these things seems appealing to you, feel free to drop me a message, I look forward to our conversations.
-6’2, Contagious laughter, and someone who loves to listen to you
-Emotional open, I know who I am, and I am not afraid to express my feelings.
-I’ve been cooking for years, and I can make some pretty bomb tacos.
-Nothing makes my heart happier than giving gifts and surprising others with them.
-Traveling is something I love to do, hopefully you do too!
-I love tattoos and mine tell a story. I would love to share.

2023.05.28 05:09 GorgeousJo35 What the hate with section8 I need a place to stay
So I am so frustrated I am fleeing my abusing ex and got brought here so I ported my voucher from fl… People are so hateful. I work hard my parents have long passed I am a mom trying to start my life over work school my side hustles stay at home raise my kids drink water and mind my business literally. Yet we need a home nobody likes to rent to section 8 and these same people got government programs not all to help buy their first home which i am aiming for next yr. If low income ppl had 650 700 credit scores they could buy homes. As long as you dont owe utilities, no bankruptcies, no criminal history, and your score not 300 you should be good. Its like they want to push you to crime-filled areas my kids are good students and scared of atl just like miami smh I just wanted to vent. I work from home so I need a quiet house to rent and safe. Truly this is frustrating but The Most High Yahuah will work it out. No negativity will be allowed keep it to yourself please.
