This Dad one day Follow His 12-Year-Old Daughter and saw that She Visited an Old Abandoned House

A hardworking dad named Peter White raised his 12-year-old daughter Mary all alone. After noticing that his daughter stopped walking home with her friend like she always did, he decided to follow her one day, which led to a surprising discovery. Peter was a hardworking businessman who started working from home when his wife Annika passed away years back. He decided to do everything from home to take good care of their only daughter Mary and provide for whatever she needed.

Although Peter would take Mary to school every morning, she would usually walk home with her friend Anna every afternoon. He would then sit on their porch, waiting for her to arrive. It’d always be Mary who’d get home first, as their house was right at the corner of Anna’s street. The two girls would wave at Peter, and he’d wave back with a smile on his face!

In the past month, Peter noticed that Mary would always return home with her clothes dirtied. He didn’t think much of this, as he thought maybe she played with other kids at school on the field or at the playground. However, he started to notice that Mary would no longer walk with Anna, and Anna would always pass by first. Mary would usually follow after around twenty to thirty minutes.

He decided to ask Anna’s mom what happened. “Hey Lucy, how are you? I was just wondering… is anything going on between Anna and Mary? I noticed they haven’t been walking together after school anymore,” he asked. “Hi Peter, the girls are having one of those quarrels again. You know, teenage girl stuff,” Anna’s mom replied. This didn’t sound good to Peter, so the next day, he decided to see where Mary would go after school.

Peter waited inside his car from across the school. He spotted Mary leaving, and her clothes were not soiled the same way it’d be every time she’d come home. He started the car and slowly followed her as she walked. After a while, she turned towards an old abandoned house and entered. Peter quickly parked the car and ran towards the house to follow inside where he saw Mary approach an old man in ragged clothes.

“Mary! Get away from him!” he shouted. Mary jumped at her dad’s loud voice and dropped the bag of food she had brought for the man from their school cafeteria. “But dad…” she started to say. Before she knew it, Peter lifted her from the ground and brought her inside the car. “Mary, you can’t be walking into abandoned houses and talking to homeless men like that! What if he did something to hurt you?!” he said angrily.

“I’ve been giving him food, dad. He hasn’t touched me, ever,” Mary replied in tears after her dad raised his voice at her. “Just because he hasn’t done it doesn’t mean he can’t in the future! And besides, there are many dangers out there. You can’t be hanging around dangerous places alone. Promise me, Mary. You’re not going back there,” he said again, still shaken by the startling discovery he just made.

Hesitantly, Mary nodded. “I promise. But daddy, can you please get the drawings he made for me? Please, I want the drawings,” she pleaded. Mary wouldn’t stop crying, so after he dropped her home, he went back to the abandoned house and saw the same man sitting on the floor. “My daughter won’t stop talking about some drawings she left over here,” Peter said.

The homeless man quietly handed him pieces of paper. Peter was surprised to see that they were portraits of his late wife. “Your daughter is a kind young girl. I was very ill and hungry one day, and I was lying on the ground because I was exhausted. Mary wanted to help, but her friend told her to get away from me. Mary stayed, while her friend angrily ran home,” the man started to explain.

“She bought me a sandwich and some tea, and after I slowly recovered, she helped me walk back here to the house that I stay in. We talked for a while, and I told her I used to be an artist. She gave me art materials and asked me to draw her late mom,” he added.The homeless man revealed that he never asked for payment for the drawings, but Mary would always come and bring her sandwiches. He shared:

“She is a wonderful young lady. I was glad to paint the photographs for free since I could see how much they meant to her, but she was always willing to feed me. She would sit on the ground with me while I finished drawing. That’s why she was continuously soiling her clothes.” Peter felt guilty for having misjudged the man. He saw Mary’s longing for her mother, and she found a companion in this compassionate guy who gave her paintings of her mother.

“I apologize for passing judgment on you earlier today. I suspected you were up to something horrible, and I couldn’t take the prospect of losing my kid. I apologize and thank you for keeping her mother’s memory alive in her heart and mind, “He stated. The homeless man then handed him his final artwork. “This is the drawing she wanted me to do the day before. I finished it today and planned to deliver it to her “He stated.

Peter took the piece of paper in his hands and noticed it had a drawing of their family on it. As they ate dinner together, he, Mary, and his late wife Annika were laughing. Peter couldn’t stop crying. “This is beautiful,” he sniffled. “Thank you really lot. This is going to be framed.” After gathering his thoughts, he asked the man a question: “My best friend owns a nearby art gallery.

For his exhibitions and art shows, he hires artists. Would you be willing to give it a shot?” The man grinned. “That would be fantastic. Thank you very much. I’ve been camping in this deserted area for quite some time. I’d like another chance at living a normal life “He replied. That was the start of a beautiful transformation in his life, one that allowed him to eat, sleep, and live comfortably while doing something he actually enjoyed.

He was able to rent a modest workshop and live there after consistently generating money through the art shop. He began to earn a good living by accepting art commissions. Meanwhile, he kept in touch with Peter and Mary, who frequently asked him to supper. He also began teaching Mary painting lessons because the young girl was interested in it.
