This is my 2nd story I'm submitting today and it's also about something that happened after my daughter found her uncle dead from a drug overdose. For any details about that, they're more specific in my other story about Uncle Dusty.
Ok, just a few months after his death, I was alone in the house, sitting at the dining room table on my laptop. To my right is a glass door leading to the back deck and to my left is the archway into the living room. It was mid-afternoon, shortly before I needed to pick up my daughter from school.
It was totally silent in the house, not even any noise from what I was doing on my computer so when a loud smacking sound came out of thin air right beside me, my behind left my chair it startled me so badly. It sounded like a large, heavy book had fallen on the tile floor, like a clapping sound is the best way I can describe it. I got up and searched the house and found nothing, went outside and found nothing. We live in a very quiet subdivision, and I was certain it came from inside the house anyway.
I shrugged it off and sat back down but almost immediately my right shirt sleeve began to be tugged at. I was wearing a loose, long-sleeved top and I could actually see it being tugged up and down and that whole side of my body was cold, but I saw nothing. I've never been frightened of these experiences so I just said, "Ok, yeah, I know you're here." I didn't know WHO it was, but it was someone.
Shortly after this, I'm sitting in my car waiting for my daughter to get out of school and my cell rings. It's my aunt, Shae, who is totally like my daughter in picking up on things. I answer and the first thing she says is, "Hey, Dusty says to tell you he likes your haircut."
All right. Let me get this straight- first of all, Shae hadn't known yet that I had cut my hair but most importantly I had told no one yet of my weird experience earlier that afternoon at my house. What I don't get is why I didn't see him myself. I have seen him before, so why not this time? Why did he have to tell Shae what he wanted to tell me? I don't know but it was very strange.
