Mrs. Evans is a character created by Megan. She appeared in the episode "The Tale of the Secret Admirer".


Margaret "Meggie" Evans is the loving wife of Mr. Evans. She knew her husband since high school. Back in high school, she and her husband knew of a real a tough intimidating bully. His name was Teddy Mars, he was also a petty thief, a vandal and pretty much anything else rotten. Teddy developed a crush on her. So he began writing her notes. The notes usually said "Do you feel the same way about me that I feel about you?". She didn't like Teddy but she didn't tell him personally. Also Teddy couldn't take a hint.

Then one night Teddy wrote her a note asking her to meet him in the woodshop. But her husband (boyfriend at the time) went instead, Teddy was in the finishing room making a carved wooden heart, for her spraying it with lacquer as a finish. Her husband on her behalf, told Teddy that she wasn't interested in him. Teddy answered back saying that he didn't believe him and wanted to hear it from her.

Then they began to argue and Teddy began to aggressively push him. Her husband didn't want to fight him because he was a violent guy, but finally her husband had to defend himself so he pushed him back. Teddy tripped and hit his head on a drying lamp, breaking a bulb and releasing sparks. Since lacquer is flammable the woodshop caught fire in one spark and it exploded. Teddy died in the explosion, while her husband was blown out of the room and only injured his arm.

Teddy's spirit haunted the wood shop since then, still waiting for her to answer his notes and come to the wood shop. Years, later her daughter also nicknamed Meggie attended the same high school. Due to heredity her daughter looked very much like she did as a teenager. Her daughter even went by the nickname Meggie as well. Recently she passed down her old backpack. Then her daughter soon found an old letter and mistook it as a new letter to her. Teddy's spirit awoke and began sending her daughter more letters asking her to show up at the wood shop. He even appeared in her mirror scaring her daughter out of her skin. Teddy's ghost was half burnt from the explosion that he died in.

Teddy began to also send threatening letters to her daughter's new friend and crush (later boyfriend) Nick telling him to stay away from her daughter or he would hurt him.

Finally one night later, her daughter was asked to meet him in the school woodshop, Nick decided to go in her daughter's place and tell him to leave her alone (preparing to repeat the same events as years before). Nick showed up and Teddy lured him into the drying room and nearly suffocated him with the fumes of lacquer and the heat from turning on all the drying lamps. Also he was about to pound him with a crowbar, and threatened to blow them both up by making a spark if he couldn't have her.

During dinner that night, her husband pointed out that their daughter now had her old backpack. Then her daughter finally found out that the letter she got wasn't for her. It was just an old letter stuck inside the backpack for all these years. When her daughter mentioned finding one of the letters, bringing up memories of the past really upset her. Finally her husband told their daughter the story about Teddy Mars. She was unaware that Teddy had been mistaking her daughter for her. But her daughter now knew who was stalking her and that both she and Nick were in serious danger.

So her daughter showed up to the woodshop just in time to save Nick. Teddy was so pleased to finally see whom he believed to be her had shown up. So Teddy asked her daughter for his long awaited answer. Her daughter posed as her. Then her daughter told him she didn't feel the same way about him at all. Then in a fit of heartbroken rage Teddy hit a drying lamp, breaking another bulb and the room burned up in an explosion, putting his spirit to rest for good. her daughter was left unharmed while Nick also slightly hurt his arm.

Whether or not her daughter ever told she and her husband about what had happened is unknown.
