They're Friendly by Limey

Before I relate my story, I would just like to say for the record how irritating it is to see so many infantile time wasters submitting stories that are clearly works of poorly written fiction.

Dream Visitation And Possible Astral Projection? by Emilieoxox

I have two stories here, the first of which I am certain was a spiritual visitation from my Grandparents in a dream state, so it wasn't an actual dream but rather a way of lost loved ones coming through to us as we're sleeping and on a different vibration to what we are when awake. STORY 1: It...
