This all happened when Madison was about nine or ten years old, and she went to her neighbors birthday party with her brother and sister. At some point in the party, everyone decided it would be fun to play hide and seek. There was this one girl at the party, Emma, who was a friend of Madison's neighbor, who Madison really got along with well. It's not like she was her best friend, but they really liked each other.
When it got to be Emma's turn to be "it" and do the seeking, and she began counting down, everyone started running around like crazy, trying to find a good place to hide. After having played a few rounds of hide and seek, it was getting harder and harder to find a good hiding spot.
Madison looked in the bedroom, under the bed, and someone was already under there. Then she went underneath the table and someone was there too. It was the same story in the living room, someone was there. So, she had a bright idea - she'd hide in the bathroom!
She ran into the bathroom, and then jumped into the tub and pulled the shower curtain closed, and hid behind that curtain. As she's hiding there she can hear Emma out in the house searching for the other kids, and finding some of them. Madison was so scared, excited, and nervous hiding there in the bathroom - she could hear what was going on, but it was weird not to be able to see, and she was sure that any second Emma would pull the curtain back and find her!
She eventually hears footsteps walking toward the bathroom, toward her, and she was convinced that Emma was going to find her and make her it. But then, much to her surprise, the footsteps came in to the bathroom, and then the door closed. That's when she realized it wasn't Emma who had come into the bathroom, it was someone else, and they didn't know she was in there.
So, carefully, she peeked around the curtain, and there was older red haired guy, way older, and he's about to USE the bathroom, the toilet, about to go to the bathroom! As fast as she could she ducked back behind the shower curtain and covered her eyes. But she couldn't cover her ears AND her eyes, and she hears him unzipping his pants. And then, well, she hears him using the bathroom, going to the bathroom. This was so wrong, but she couldn't react.
She sits as still as she can because she doesn't want him to find out she's there, that would be the MOST embarrassing thing ever. She's just praying that he'll finish fast so she can get out of there. Her plan was to wait until he finished up and left and then she would dash out of there as fast as she could - game of hide and seek or not. She was pretty sure she'd need counselling.
Just as he's finished up and she can hear him starting to open the door, someone bursts in and pulls the shower curtain back. It's Emma, still playing, still seeking. She yells FOUND YOU!
There's this super awkward moment when the older man realizes that Madison had been in the bathroom the whole time he had been in there using it! And, to make this worse, it turned out to be Emma's dad. Madison was so embarrassed, she turned bright red, more embarrassed than she'd ever been.
She was so freaked out by the whole thing she made an excuse and went home and never went back to the party, she was young and thought she was going to get in trouble. So, that's her embarrassing hide and seek story.
