This story actually happened to my sister. I was not involved this matter, but I heard comments from people around and was questioned by my sister herself about it.
My sister is using the famous "apple mark smart phone", recently she got the "version 7" and had downloaded an application called "W". (I have decided to use letters and logo marks to censor certain things. Some of you might know what I mean but for this story please do not name anything just in case we will get into any trouble). My sister had downloaded the same application on my "version 5" phone but was running slow. I cannot accept any more new friends due to lack of capacity, maybe I need to get the coming up "version 8"?
Anyhow, I was working late at night, my sister sent me a message on "W" and she was saying that she is meeting an old friend. I was happy for her and so I had just sent her a smiley face. When I was home, my sister was still out probably still in the bar where she will meet her friend, suddenly my phone rang, it was from my sister.
I drove my car to the bar where she was and fetched her. She did not drink at all and told me that her friend did not come. I asked her why she was there for such a long time, and she told me that she was sending messages with her friend and had a long conversation on phone.
From the log, her friend was telling her that she is coming "Estaria em um minute" (I will be there in 1 minute).
My sister had replied things like take her time, do not rush... Than her friend replied again "Preciso demais um minute" (I need another minute).
My sister tried to phone her but she never took the call but instead replied "Não posso falar agora" (I cannot talk now).
Than after that, she had received a very strange message from another friend at the famous SNS "F" asking her if she know about anything about the funeral of her friend.
My sister thought she and her friend were doing a really bad joke on her so she replied, "Se você quer vir também, venha, mas esteja no horário da próxima vez." (If you want to come too, come, but be on time next time.) Her phone rang and it was from her other friend, she told her that she was surprised that my sister did not know anything about her friend. Her friend was at the hospital for an year and half because of an accident, she became a "plant", and just recently her parents had decided to let her rest in peace. She had passed away few weeks ago. They did not believe that just minutes ago she and her friend was text messaging each other on "W".
Now, I cannot let you guys see my sister's texts since it is personal and I am not sure if her friend had a proper "W" account. The situation... Yes, could be explained very easily either it was a fake account or a "robot". But I need to say that it could be real since I too know her friend well, since she had been coming to our home since my sister was small.
The 2 of them met each other when my mother was working in an elementary school in the city as a secretary. My sister was the student of that school and her friend's mother was a teacher of her class and had a daughter just 1 year older than my sister. My mother took care of her daughter as well as a "part time child-sitter", and that is how the 2 knew each other and became good friends. The 2 were like sisters and they messaged each other as well when my sister had to go to the States. We moved out of our city during our adulthood but still the 2 kept in contact with each other.
And yes, I do know that she had an accident, my sister had been sending her messages through "W", she did not get a reply for a period, but few months ago she got a reply from her. Even I was surprised that she had been dead.
Yes, again it could be someone else playing a prank to my sister but she is not a teenager girl who knows nothing, she will realize it, like any of us will. She had even asked me if it is OK to take a person cured from an injury to drink alcohol. I thought she was OK and the accident was not as bad as we thought.
My sister still keeps her messages, but of course like any other stories that we could guess, there is no reply anymore. Sadness could be felt every time I think of the situation. We both went to her funeral held a few days ago. Let her rest in peace and I hope you all would be interested in this story.
