This story takes place around 10 p.m. When I was a teenager, around 2001. There isn't much to the story, it's not fantastical, but it freaked me out and left me wondering what the heck just happened.
The rooms that are important to this story are the kitchen, my mom's room, and the family living room. From the family living room you can't see directly into the kitchen but the couch is facing that direction so you can see when someone leaves it, if there is light in it, and if someone is walking from it and towards the family living room. Another thing is you have to pass through the family living room to get to four of the five bedrooms, my mom's room included. My dad was asleep, my sister was asleep, my mom was in the kitchen cleaning up, and I was in the family living room when this event occurred.
I had just gotten out of the restroom and saw that my mom's room door was slightly open as there was a little light coming from her room. I could hear her cleaning up in the kitchen though. I sat in the family living room to watch TV. After watching TV for about ten minutes my mom comes walking from the kitchen wearing a blood red nightgown, one I had never seen before. She had also left the light on in the kitchen. She walks past me without saying anything, without making a noise, and without even glancing at me or saying anything to me. She opens her door, walks into her room, and leaves it slightly open. I think nothing of it and continue watching TV when five minutes later I see the light in the kitchen turn off and my mom comes walking from the kitchen wearing a white nightgown, the one she always wears. She says she's going to sleep as she walks past, opens her bedroom door, and closes it behind her. I'm sitting there in disbelief at what happened expecting her to scream or come out running because there's someone in her room but I hear nothing. I stay in the family living room for another hour so I assume she just goes to sleep.
I've never told her about it but I have told my wife and her family. I don't think she would believe me.
