This happened to my brother Joe when I was back in Elementary, probably when I was 7-8 years old. I remember the event vividly in my mind until this day.
I lived with my 3 brothers, 1 other sister, and my parents. The rest of my siblings lived elsewhere with their spouses. Anywho, we lived in a duplex that had a basement that was dark and really creepy. We lived on the first floor, and had neighbors that lived on the second.
It was just another regular sunny day, I was playing outside by myself when I suddenly heard my mom shout out to me. "Hey! Go check out what your brothers are doing downstairs in the basement! They keep yelling for no reason!"
I remember having to drag myself towards the basement because I didn't want to stop playing, and I couldn't really care less as to why my brothers were shouting. Anyways, as I started to get closer to the basement, I could hear the shouting and yelling of my brothers.
"What are you guys doing?!" I remembered shouting as I walked down the wooden steps into the basement. When I was halfway down the steps, I saw my brother Xue standing on his bed (with my brother and his friend cowering behind him. And yes, my brothers slept down in the basement because we didn't have enough rooms for them if you're wondering why we have a bed down there) shooting spurts of flames with his lighter and some sort of gas can.
At that moment, I could tell that something was really wrong. I could feel the ends of my hair on my entire body prick up. My brother Xue shouted at me to go grab my older brother Koua or my mom. I turned my heels around and sprinted out of the basement to go grab my mom since my older brother wasn't home.
Once my mom and I were back downstairs, my mom asked what was going on. My brother Xue told my mom that my other brother, Joe, had seen a woman at the end of the basement staircase. Joe said that he had finished showering and was walking downstairs when he saw a woman who was ALL white, from her skin to her hair and her long white dress. Joe explained to us in detail that the woman was smiling at my brother with her long tongue out. Almost as if she "enjoyed" scaring him.
My family and our religion believes in spirits, so of course, we were convinced. My mom told my brothers and their friend to come upstairs while we discussed about it. A little while later, my brother admitted that he actually took some drugs earlier and said he was a bit high as well. Immediately, I knew that it was probably just a hallucination. However, my brother said that he also remembered the lady having a purple flower brooch on her white dress.
My mom said it was no hallucination because my mom and I went to a relative's funeral just the day before this incident, and she had the purple flower brooch attached to her clothes as well. My mom said that she probably followed us home. SO, to give you guys more of a backstory. In our religion, we can't "nap" at the funeral home while they are performing ceremonies. My mom said that if you nap at the funeral home, there's a likely chance that the spirit of the dead person might follow you home. And of course, I took a small nap at the funeral home. (Although I always thought that it was just a scare tactic of hers when I was little.)
Nothing ever happened after that. Hope you guys enjoyed one of my stories! I have more to come! Comment below!
