Richard and Rose Pearson had done everything in their power to raise their son, Hugo, to the best of their ability but the young boy was a five year old child that was a trouble maker from the day he was born. Despite the parents frequent attempts to discipline the child all he would do is laugh at them, behave for a bit and the next day he would be up to his same old mischief. He was not a child that liked to destroy things, he was a child that liked to play pranks on his parents. He loved to hide around corners to see their reaction to his gags and after he saw the reaction from them you could hear him laughing from his hiding spot.
At first his pranks were nothing to be overly concerned about as he was doing simple things like hiding his parents car keys and wallets. These pranks really caused his parents to panic and when he sensed that they were going to lose their minds he would tell them where he was hiding their possessions. After a while when something was missing they knew it was him and instead of looking for the object they would instead search for Hugo. He became extremely hyper when they would look for him as this was what he really wanted because he loved to play hide and go seek.
By the age of six he would routinely prank phone call his parents at work by making weird noises over the phone or by simply hanging up on them. Hugo's parents eventually believed that the only way to straighten him out was to teach him a lesson and they knew that there was one thing that he was terrified of and that was his fear of the dark and the monsters that lurked in it. Hugo was so scared of the dark that he slept with the light on.
His parents decided to begin scaring him by knocking on his door in the middle of the night and when he would get up to anwser it there would be nobody there. They would also knock on his walls, tap at his windows and shine flashlights into his room. The whole time making weird and unusual noises to scare him.
Hugo would talk to his parents about what was happening and they would play dumb and told him if he wanted the bogeyman to go away then he should not pranking them. Their plan was working.
The next night Hugo turned off the lights in his room and his parents really went to work by continuing to haunt the young boy by moaning through the walls, windows and door. In eerie voices they would say that the Bogeyman was coming to get him. They could hear him crying through the walls and that's when they knew that enough was enough and they stopped tormenting him.
The next night the parents checked in on the young boy to make sure he was in bed and they found him sound asleep in the dark. Then at about 3 a.m. the parents heard a knock at their bedroom door and a little voice giggled, "Be careful, it's the Bogeyman knocking."
