Today at school I was talking to two of my best friends, Sanna and Niamh about ghosts. Niamh dismissed it and said that ghosts didn't exist but my Sanna's head popped up (she'd been drawing) and she said very seriously, "Yes they do." She seemed to be really convinced on this so I asked her if she'd ever seen a ghost or anything supernatural.
She nodded and told me that she had woken up one night because the willow tree next to her house had been banging loudly on her window. She didn't want to get up because it was very late but the room was very stuffy so she opened the window to let some air in. She described to me that she'd seen a "black oval shaped thing" just floating there. It didn't move towards her but she felt very drawn to it. Her mother had seen and told her about orbs so she closed the window and went back to bed, deciding to talk her mother about it the next day.
She said that she'd had different experiences with the other side but wouldn't tell me anything about them. Sanna and her mum are not the type of people who say that they attract ghosts/demons/orbs and whatnot and I really don't think she'd make this up.
Does anyone have any information on orbs? Dumb it down a bit for me so I can understand exactly what sort of thing is stalking Sanna's family. Information such as;
* Are they dangerous?
* Could it be a dead relation?
* Is it watching over Sanna's family?
* Will it attract other supernatural beings?
Thanks for anything helpful though!
