Boy in the Pool


When I was about seven years old, my family and I were at the pool. We were about to eat so I went to the indoor pool for a quick swim. This kid, who was probably around 12, started to talk to me. He said "I know your name." and I asked "What is it?". He said "Tyler", which is my name. I have never seen or been around him before, so there is no way he could have overheard my name. So I asked "How do you know my name?" and he said "Future". Of course, being seven years old, I ran out of the indoor pool, crying and running to my mom. I told her what happened and we went to go find the boy. When we got in the indoor pool, he was gone. Now, I don't know if he was a ghost or just a kid playing a prank on me. I don't know why he would want to play a prank on me.

Peace and chicken grease,

I'm afraid to say, it was probably a kid playing a prank on you. Maybe he over heard you name when your parents were talking to you? I don't know, it's just my opinion (:

strange but weird. Just say it's a ghost it makes the story better. It could of been one you never know but I have seen ghosts they don't seem to talk in real life they talk in my dreams though. I enjoyed reading your little story LoL truthfully I like reading short stories not really really long ones. 😊

I think that was more than likely just some kid who probably heard someone call you be your name or something, and was probably just trying to be a jerk.

I think that it is about a 50/50 chance that it could be a spirit or a kid pranking on you. I really don't know if it was a spirit or a real kid unless you describe to me his appearance, if you can actaully bring yourself to remember. It the kid as extremely pale he probably was ghost or maybe just a very white kid. Did you feel chills or did you feel cold when you were around him? I don't know what else I can tell you, so if you remember what he looked like, tell me, so for now, take care and be safe. - Janice
