About three years ago in April my best friend Bill died of a drug overdose in a Taco Bell bathroom in Newport, KY. Best friend is really an understatement. He was more like a brother to me. Everybody loved Bill and the kid was a real genius. Just a one of a kind guy you maybe meet maybe once or twice in your lifetime. Needless to say I was devastated when I heard the news.
About a month later my Dad wanted to drive across the country to check out some land he was thinking about buying. I didn't want to go but he's on oxygen from this crazy lung disease he got out of nowhere so he needed me for carrying stuff and making sure he didn't die.
Our first night out we pull in to this nice newer looking hotel and get a room. Nothing unusual about it, just a normal looking nice hotel room with all the works. As I was going to sleep I couldn't stop thinking about Bill and I tried to contact him. I guess I prayed to him. Asking him to please give me some kind of a sign that he was okay. Eventually, I went to sleep.
The next morning my dad was already up early just sitting up in bed. He would be there for a while cause the altitude was getting to his breathing really bad. It was early enough that it was still dark and I decided to take a shower. Flipped the light on, hopped in, I'm showering.
While I was washing my hair I suddenly hear the light switch flick. Blackness. I wasn't really scared or anything, figuring it was some kind of malfunction, but I was amazed when I reached my hand out and the light switch was actually in the off position! I had to turn it back on myself. Thankfully it worked. I remembered trying to contact Bill the night before, and turning the lights off while I was in the shower seemed like his style honestly. Like one of his pranks.
I finished up and when I stepped back in to the room my dad was still sitting on the bed breathing heavily. I still asked him about the light switch. Of course he just looked confused, said he'd been there the whole time, and that was that.
This is 100% true. Also the only ghostly encounter I've had in my life, at least that I remember.
