My name's Olivia and I'm only 13 years old. Of course it sounds stupid because most 13 year olds would lie about things like this to get attention. But this is real. More real then I want it to be. The things that have happened give me the shivers just by the thought of it.
Lots of supernatural things have happened to me in the past. For example, I have seen figures in the dark before, little girls with black hair in white nighties, therefore I am really scared to sleep in the dark, or be in the dark at all, even.
Once me and my friend were playing a hide and seek game, in the dark, in my room, when I was looking for my friend. I hadn't realised she had actually gone for a drink. I opened the wardrobe, and heard breathing, slowly, steadily. I couldn't see but I heard laughing, just like my friend's, and felt her long hair. I started laughing too. But then I heard a voice behind me asking what I was laughing at. She was at the door with a glass of apple juice, she had just switched the light on. There was nothing in the wardrobe. I couldn't talk, eat or sleep for the next week.
There was also another time where me and my little sister were eating breakfast, our mum was doing the ironing, we all heard a tapping on the window. The tapping turned into a knock. Me and my sister were aware of this, so we kept checking the window, and at the same time asking our mum what it was. She seemed really closed in about it, and scared herself. There was no bushes or plants or trees that surround the house, neither anything that could make that noise, it was just like somebody knocking. There was no other explanation for it.
The list of stories goes on. There have been other events where the light has been switched off, us thinking the bulb has blown but it hasn't, just been switched off.
Another time I was home alone, the light switched off and the door slammed. I switched the light back on and the TV switched off, I switched it back on. This went on for a while with lamps, chargers, WiFi box, so on. The lights kept flickering for the next hour or so, I couldn't move at all after a while, even to just switch my iPod charger back on to keep a small light source with me. I had my cats with me, that do usually act quite protective over me. This time, surprisingly, they were acting like nothing was happening, although now and again they would look and meow at nothing, well, not that I could see anyway.
I live on a street opposite a graveyard and church. I don't know if that's anything to do with it, but I used to go there and talk, as if to someone, ask 'them' questions I'll never have an answer for. Sometimes I would feel a vibration on the bench I used to sit on, and a purring almost, a stroke against my skin. If a spirit at all, I think its either Toasty or Bruzer, two of my cats that disappeared around two years ago, just disappeared. Gone. I used to hear knocking on the church door as well, and other things, like they were trying to communicate in any way possible.
One day I will have an understanding of this. Once I die, I'll know.
