This isn't my first encounter with the paranormal, but I'm sure it's one that I'll never forget. I know my daughter won't forget it.
My daughter, Callie is only five years old. She was upstairs in her bedroom playing with her Barbies and her Bratz dolls. I could hear her talking from downstairs. I expected her to just be y'know, acting out things with her dolls and making them speak and whatnot.
I was downstairs gazing out the bay window in the main room watching my husband, Andy, drive off to visit his mother to help her move into her new house. As soon as my husband left, my dog, Kyo, began to bark at a corner in the office. My dog rarely ever barks. He only barks when something's wrong. I rushed over to Kyo and tapped him on the nose. I sent him outside. He knows not to bark. There was nothing for him to bark at anyway.
I slowly walked towards the corner Kyo was barking at. I felt around for something there. Maybe he had seen a spider web and thought it was something else? As soon as my hand went near the wall, there was a blast of cold air. I quickly jumped back and let out a little yelp. Kyo was still outside barking at the door trying to get in the house.
At this point, I was getting frustrated with Kyo. I rushed towards the door and slammed the door shut so Kyo couldn't see anything in the house and we could barely hear him. I leaned against the door and calmed myself a bit. The whole corner-thing frightened me a bit.
After a couple seconds of calming down, I hear my daughter shout from upstairs, "Mommy, where's my mermaid Barbie?" As I walk up the steps to her bedroom, I reply, "Darlin', it should be in your bathtub toys bucket." Callie walks out of her room and says, "No, Mom. I brought her in my room to play with."
I walk into Callie's room and gaze at all the dolls on the floor. I don't see her mermaid Barbie. "Callie, are you sure you brought it into here?" I ask once again.
I hear her gasp. Sounds like a happy gasp. I quickly turn my head to her and I see her pointing at the ceiling...
"Up there, Mommy. She's up there!"
I look up to the ceiling. There it is. There's her mermaid Barbie doll on the ceiling. It's just floating there. I scream at the top of my lungs and run out of the room pushing Callie in front of me. I look behind me and the doll drops to the floor. I let out another yelp and just run down the stairs with Callie.
I tell her to put her shoes on. I grab Kyo's leash and rush to the back door to hook him up the leash and slam the door behind me. As I'm running towards Callie who's waiting at the door for me, I hear five big slams. *BANG, BANG, BANG* then when I go to slip my shoes on, the last two bangs, *BANG, BANG*
I grab my purse. Callie, Kyo and I run out of the house and into the car. We drive away. I've never been so scared in my life. I've never experienced anything like this before. In the car, Callie started crying. She was terrified when she heard the banging.
I drove to my sister's house and stayed there for the rest of the day. When Andy got home, he called me on my cell phone. He asked where I was. I explained what had happened. He told me that I'm being ridiculous and he told me to come home. I refused. I told him I'm staying at my sister's for the rest of the week with Kyo and Callie and that he can stay there by himself.
And that's how everything played out.
