Me, my husband, and my 2-year-old daughter vacationed in the Catskills for Easter this year to get away from everything. We stayed in my cousin's beautiful mountain chalet.
The cabin was quite a drive from the nearest store, so on our first day I went to the grocery to stock up for the week. My husband was tired from the drive, so I left him at the house and put my daughter in the car seat in the back. My little girl fell asleep pretty quickly when we got on the interstate. Even five minutes into the ride I started hearing what sounded like white noise. I thought it was the radio at first but I don't usually turn the radio on when I'm somewhere new. (I get so nervous on mountain roads.) I checked, and it was definitely off.
The sound was still there so I thought it was my little girl because she likes to mumble to herself. I checked the rearview mirror make see if she was still sleeping and I caught a glimpse of ANOTHER CHILD in the backseat, leaning over and whispering something to her while she slept. And this wasn't a normal child - he/it - had tan skin and SHOCK WHITE hair, maybe six or seven years old.
I called out to the child, but the next time I looked in the mirror, it was gone. I pulled over as soon as I could and checked the car thoroughly several times... Not a trace of the child. My daughter was still sleeping. I could barely make it to the store, my hands were shaking so much.
It's been a while since Christmas, and my daughter is more vocal now. Still, whenever she mumbles to herself, I jump a little and half expect to see the whispering child again.
I thought I could forget about it (I really tried) but I just can't. I don't want to tell my husband about it unless I know for sure I'm not imagining things. I get nervous when the air conditioner is on. I can't even listen to the radio anymore because part of me is waiting for the whispering child to return.
I need to know what it said to my baby. Has this happened to anyone else? If so, did you hear what the child was saying? Any information would be would be much appreciated!
