This happened a few years ago, I'd say about 5 years, I am now 18. This isn't my first paranormal encounter, but this is the one that stuck with me the most.
My whole family was getting ready because we were going out. I was ready, and I was looking for my dad to ask him something, although I don't remember what it was. I walked in the house, and from the front door you can see down the hallway. In the hallway, we had a dresser with a mirror, and I see my dad combing his hair in front of the mirror. So I start walking towards him, to ask him whatever it was I was going to ask, when he walks away. He turns and goes into his room. I just follow him, and when I turn the corner into his room, but he wasn't there. My parent's room wasn't that big, so I could see the whole room from where I stood, and it didn't have a bathroom, so he couldn't have been in there. I simply turn around and leave. I walk into the living room and ask my mum where my dad was. She says he's probably outside, and when I go outside I see he's in the car, going through his collection of CD's while he waits for us. There's no way he could have passed me and gone outside, because there were only three doors that you can get out of the house through, and none of them are down the hallway.
For some reason, I never thought much about it, I didn't think about what had happened for a few years. I've always been interested in the paranormal, but as I grew older I began to read more about it. I read ghost stories all the time online and in books. One day I came upon a story talking about a doppelganger, and I didn't know what that was, so I looked it up online. I found a story about a lady, I don't remember much of the story, but it was about a lady that had been seen around this building at different locations at the same time. As if there were two of her. But she was alive, and not a ghost. As I researched more about doppelgangers, I learned that when you see a person's doppelganger, it's pretty much a death omen. Five years have passed, and my dad is well and in pieces. I just want to know what that was all about; I don't know what to think.
