i had just turned 10 the other day, all my friends had big bounce house parties and I wanted one as well. 
I wanted a castle to jump around in and my dad was good friends with a guy who had his own fun house business so of course getting one was no problem. Now I turned 10 on a wendsday but because of school, and my parents work schedules I did not have my birthday party until Saturday. So as a kid I was upset at the time but the days went fast and I knew I had a party to look forward too at the end of the week.
 So by the time the end of the week came I was excited I woke up Saturday morning and saw the castle in my backyard. I was so excited that I ran all the way down the steps and hit the glass door to the patio I forgot to open the door.
 My mom of course had to check me out to see if I had any concussions but I was too excited to let her. She opened the door and I ran out. My dad was near the entrance and he said "Hey sport are you ready for fun?" I said "yeah!" My dad said he had to go do one quick thing inside and not to go in. He expected me to wait outside. It was at that moment he left that I walked inside I jumped up in the bounce house for a few minutes but suddenly I saw iutnof the corner of my eye movement.
 Someone was in the bounce house a man I had never seen he was wearing a t shirt and shorts he had a mask on of a duck so I couldn't see his face. He came over towards me. I froze in panic as he reached his hand out and played it on my shoulder. I screamed as he put a hand over his mouth and told me to be quiet. He reached into his pocket and handed me a bag of candy. Just then my dad came into the bounce house and screamed at the man.
 The man took one look at my dad and managed to get past him and took off running. We never saw the guy again and my dad never told my mom what happened and my birthday party went off without a hitch. 
A few weeks later my dad read an article in the newspaper about a abductiin in another town over, I got goosebumps when I read the description of the man, it was the same person who was in my sons bounce house. The article read "man in t shirt, shorts and reporderly wearing a duck mask abducted a kid on his birthday."
