Where do I start? I guess 33 years ago, I'm about 5 years old. My father took me and my brother on a trip to see our uncle and his family. They had a beautiful home, part of it was built underground.
So I'm the youngest of all the kids by at least 5 years They played pool, checkers, cards, it was kind of boring. Well for me of course, because I'm just getting on everyones nerves. Haha! So, my older cousin decides we'll have a seance. He gets candles and tells us to get into a circle sitting indian style on the floor. He lit the candles and put them in the center of the circle. Unfortunately I do not remember the words spoken, wish I did. He told us we had to join hands and repeat after him. He also said it was utterly important that we believe, if we didn't believe, the spirits would not present themselves.
So we repeated the words and at some point were told to close our eyes while continuing to repeat what he spoke. When he told us to open our eyes, I looked to my left. My mouth dropped open, I see a man standing on the outside of the circle. He's not your average man, he's a greyish color, transparent. I can destinctly make him out though. He's tall, has on long pants, and a sleeveless under shirt with suspenders. His hair was slightly bald on top but in the back and sides its flowing to the base of his neck line and curly. He had a beard and was holding a cigar in the corner of his mouth. This cigar was lit I could see a the smoke climbing up from it. He was also walking towards me on the outside of the circle.
In this short moment it seemed like an eternity. I screamed out in fear and ran from the room, to where my father was, who didn't even believe me. No one else in the circle saw him, but I did and still remember very clearly to this day.
