Around six years ago I got grounded and was sent to bed early. I closed my door and climbed into bed around 6:00 and I fell asleep around 7:45. I woke up at 12:00 o'clock on the dot, I thought I heard someone crying in my room. When I turned on the light something screamed and the light blew out, then I felt something claw my face. I passed out after that.
I knew it wasn't a dream because mom started screaming when she saw my face in the morning it was covered in blood and there were five long thin scratch marks on my face coming from the right side of my forehead all the way down my neck. I know many of you will probably think that a cat did it, the thing is we didn't have any pets then, we couldn't afford them. Others will probably think someone climbed out the window there is just one problem, my room had only one door and no windows.
The next night I looked in the mirror and one of the scratches was gone, the next night another was gone. This continued until all five scratches were gone. The day after they all disappeared, I almost got hit by a truck that ran a red light. The driver laughed and kept driving.
Five years after the incident my dad got divorced from my mom and we bought a new house. The night we moved in I heard singing outside my window it was in a strange language. I can still remember the melody but not the words it was both haunting, joyful, and sad at the same time. It was the most beautiful thing I have ever heard.
After the singing stopped I heard crying outside my window I pulled aside the curtain but there was no one there. Resting on the window sill was a lotus flower. I put it on my dresser to show my mom in the morning, but it disappeared during the night. I still don't understand what happened but, I stay up late every night hoping to hear the song again even though, I am pretty sure I never will.
