My friend Margaret, (She's in her late 80's), is experiencing some problems. She loves dolls. She just bought a ton of dolls at an auction. They were from around the early 1800's.
A couple nights ago, she had them all spread out on her dining room table, and she left them there when she went to bed. About 12:00 that morning, she heard a noise, and she woke up, and got out of bed to go see what it was. As she walked through the hall and into the dining room, she saw a little boy sitting at her table. She walked a little closer, and saw that the whole side of his face was burned, like maybe he had been caught in a fire? So she started shaking her cane at him and started yelling at him, saying things like, "Who are you? What are you doing in my house?" And so on. The little boy looked up at her, stood up, then disappeared.
This, of course, startled her, and she spun around to go back through the hall. Now her den is right next to her dining room. As she spun around, something caught her eye in the den. She looked in again, and saw a man staying above her coffee table looking at something. She started yelling again, and the man immediately disappeared.
Okay, that was a couple nights ago. Now last night, she was sleeping, and around 5:00am, she heard a noise, and woke up again. This time to see a young lady, in a pre civil war type skirt (full length and such). The lady had a small, fine paintbrush in her hand, and it looked like she was painting the mirror that Margaret has on her wall. Margaret started yelling at her, and she disappeared.
She eventually fell back asleep, when at 7:00am, she woke up and saw a young black girl, about 14 maybe, standing at the end of her bed. She was wearing the same type of dress. The girl looked like she was looking down at something near Margaret's feet. Again. Margaret yelled at her, adn the ghost disappeared.
She's pretty freaked out, and she can't figure out why this is happening. I think it has something to do with the dolls. That day after the sighting of the little boy and the man, she packed all the dolls up and put them away in a spare room. I think these ghosts might be the owners of these dolls, and their just looking for them. We have tried to convince her that she needs to try to talk to them, but she refuses.
Any advice, or help explaining any of this?
