About a year or two ago, in winter it was really, really snowy and I just coundn't wait to get outside and enjoy the snow. It was so deep and me and my brother had even got our own sledge that we coundn't wait to try out. Near where we live is a massive hill that is ever so fun to sledge down in the slippery snow. So my mum, dad me and brother took the sledge and walked the icy walk to the hill.
It was so fun sledging down but near the end my hands went numb and I thought I would freeze to death! So we called my brother over and headed back home. We took a different path and past a broken down farm type of building and down a path that led us to a road near homes. "yes!" I thought excitedly, " we"ll be home soon!"
I was ahead of the rest of my family and a couple of old friends my parents had met with. Bieng a good girl and knowing the safety of road crossing, I stopped at the end the path so my parents could catch up and cross the road with me. Across from where I was standing was a line of houses. In front of one of these houses was a woman, clear as day, standing on the path waiting to cross. I can still remember her. She had a multicoloured winter coat on and blue jeans. I coundn't tell her facial features because I was too far away but close enough to know she was there.
It being a common thing, I looked away to look at a snow covered tree that looked beautiful, just like in the film Narnia the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. I heard a car go by and looked towards the road again. Now the woman was gone. I had seen the car go by and the woman had vanished. I had let my eyes off of her for only a second or two! There was no way she could run that fast too, especially in this icy ground weather!
I peered to the left and right of the road but she was nowhere to be seen! My family had caught up with me now and I didn't tell them a thing.
At home I was still asking myself where on earth did she go but to this day it is still a mystery. Did she die one unfortunate winter, or was she a person who was in a collision and appearing to me for thanking me to remember to be safe near roads? I will never know.
