My family has a history of weird happenings. My grandmother on my father's side is a firm believer in the Paranormal and has tried to impress the same belief on me. My mother on the other hand, has always been a sceptic and disapproves of my grandmother's tall tales. I tend to side with my mom and write most things off as strange but explainable. Most of the goings-on have been confined to our home but this is the first experience of something in the wild and is I believe, my first actual sighting.
It was November last year, coming up on midnight. It was a cool night and road conditions were clear. Mom and I were driving back into town over a stretch of road called the 'Brae'. It's the secondary road into town and pretty desolate. There's a few farms but quite a lot of them are abandoned.
We were on a straight part of the road. I was on my phone while talking to mom. As I look up I see a figure of a girl suddenly appear. It's hard to put into words. It's not like the girl was lit up as the car moved forward or walked out from the edge of the road, she just appeared in the middle of the road.
Mom braked but it was no good, there was no way we were stopping in time. The car skidded. I clenched my teeth and waited for the impact of the body hitting our car but nothing came. Our car ended up sideways on, basically blocking half the road.
I turned to mom and saw she was slumped in her seat. Panicking, I realised she had somehow been knocked out. I didn't understand how, we didn't hit anything and the car had only braked. I shook her arm but she didn't respond. I kept prodding at her until I got a groan in return. As she came to, I turned to look and could see the figure behind us, completely fine. As I watched her, she disappeared as she had arrived.
