That Evil Smile


This is a very short but terrifying story which happened to me last year.

One night me, along with my family, were praying the Rosary as we would normally do every night. Now, I am not very fond of being there every night praying for more than an hour but I would definitely do it when my parents would ask me to.

I do believe in God. Me and my family members are a very religious family. Every often, in between the prayer, one member of my family would make a personal prayer. It was my dad's turn. As he was speaking I started feeling weird, different, I knew there was something wrong. My face started to smile, and I say my face because I was not trying to smile. It was like I wanted to laugh looking at my dad as he was speaking. My dad stared at me and kept praying.

I don't know how it happened or why because this is usually a serious time. No one made me laugh and my dad had not said anything funny. I just smiled and giggled under my breath. Everyone stared at me with confusion and shock. I was shocked myself and very scared under my smile. I knew it was not a friendly smile. I was almost snarling a very evil smile, like making fun of what my dad was saying. I felt fear inside me but I couldn't stop. I was just smiling a very big nasty smile.

He then started to pray to God so that he can liberate us from all evil. My dad spoke about how sometimes the devil uses us to manifest itself towards things or people that intimidate him. We all knew he was talking about me.

After he finished, I stopped smiling and we never spoke about it. Until this day nothing like that had ever happened to me but I will never forget that night.

I believe you're telling the truth. But I agree with the other posters too.

Couple questions though, how did you know you were smiling a evil smile? Did you see your self in a mirror, or someone tell you?

WishfulNull - that reminds me of when I was 17 and in a Christmas program at church. Several of us teens were offstage waiting our turn and someone told a joke. It really wasn't that funny, but of course... When it came time for us to take stage, it got funnier to me. And even moreso when it was my turn to say my lines 😆 I laughed so hard at a really not-so-funny joke that I had to leave the stage. Unfortunately not many of the church members saw the humor in it 😉 My mom just laughed and said something like, "Only my daughter 😊" I was in hysterics and don't even remember if I could continue with the play LOL

Very interesting theory, Ladyglow! I was also thinking somewhat along the same lines... I often get the urge to giggle/smile when everything is too solemn/quiet - even though I don't necessarily WANT to giggle or smile, it's not related to what anyone says, its just a reaction my brain has sometimes when it gets "too serious". 😆 if someone looks at me funny, I usually just shake my head and say "sorry". The way you described this event did give me the chills though! Best wishes to you,

Have you considered the possibility of your subconscious mind manifesting your dislike to pray the rosary?
I'll use your own words: "I am not very fond of being there every night praying for more than an hour"
