First of all, I need to start with the fact that even though I sort of have a sixth sense, that doesn't mean I know everything about ghosts, spirits or even the future. All I do is sense what is going on in my close friends' and relatives' point of view. So, let's start.
I was at a local swimming pool, just swimming as you can guess and I was enjoying the time with my 10 year old daughter, Kaylee. We were having fun and splashing about. Basically, just having lots of fun in the water.
A couple of hours passed, so everybody had to take a shower and return home, but since Kaylee and I are related to the lifeguard, we have a special pass that allows us to stay until five 'o'clock pm in this particular pool.
I thought that since the adults' pool was empty and it's right next to the juniors', I would have a swim in the deep end as I'm a strong and fast swimmer.
When I swam to the half way point of the deepest column of the adults' pool, I felt a splash on my back and I sensed it wasn't my own splash of my feet popping out of the water because my feet are under the water at all times and that's the reason I can swim fast.
I looked behind and no-one was there, even though I spotted a shadow approximately three meters away from me, showing on the opposite wall I was swimming beside.
I carried on swimming because I thought it was just one of those days when your mind gets all muddled up... But of course... It wasn't.
When I reached the three quarters point, I felt a splash again, but when I looked behind, the water was clear and still and the shadow was gone. I got pretty freaked out so I called Kaylee and said, "Come on sweety, it's time to go now. You've been here long enough..."
She replied, "Mum, you promised we'd stay until five 'o'clock and that's still half-an-hour away from now, Please mum..."
"Kaylee, I've changed my mind, we'll come back on Friday," I said.
When I got to the showers, I turned the Power shower to the fourth hottest temperature for the shower water. I touched nothing on the showerhead after that. When I turned the shower off and went to dry my hair in the hair-drying section (which is right next to the showers). I have a sixth sense so something told me to suspect that particular shower head I was using. As I was drying my hair, I was trying to concentrate on the shower-head and when I looked away and didn't expect it, the shower-head burst out with water.
I ran to turn it off when I felt that it was freezing-cold water. I looked at the pointer and it was still on the fourth hottest temperature.
I continued to dry my hair in the section behind it so I could try to avoid the spirit that was stirring things up. After I'd finished drying my hair I checked on Kaylee who was still in the shower. I thought I wouldn't walk in because I sensed the spirit wanted ME!
I just waited until Kaylee was ready and I left in relief.
That's the end of my story.
Please comment and try to help me sort out this spirit that wants me!
My boyfriends dad threw something into the pool and it got stuck behind the ladder you walk in to get into the pool. I went under with my trusty mask and was attempting to wiggle around the ladder when I heard a very loud, very clear high-pitched noise. Now, I am sure you have all been swimming before, and you may notice when under water, sounds are louder yet more distorted. Startled I rose out of the water and asked of anyone had called me. They shook their head and I shrugged as if I was hearing things.
I went back under the water attempting to look for (I think it was a dime he threw) behind the ladder. It was dark behind the ladder because obviously there is a shadow, however I wasn't thinking it was scary because it was a clean, blue pool filled with my favorite element. What can be scary about that?
I finally found the dime and it was wedged half way under the ladder (my luck). I had to squeeze and muster a lot of strength to get far enough behind the ladder to grab it, but when I did I heard the scream again louder than ever, and right next to my ear. I shot a glance next to me and I saw a woman
's face almost directly in front of mine. I panicked, and almost drowned myself while faliling my arms and attempting to get the the surface. When I rose out of the water with a scream everyone looked at me. I didn't know what to tell them so I just said a water bug bit me. The face of the woman still haunts me to this day, he face was so solemn and is so much agony. I wish I could have controlled myself and acted rationally so that I might have been able to help her. I haven't seen this woman since, but who knows, Summer is coming and the pool will be open for business soon. <I might write a more detailed story of this and post it once the submissions are open again>
PS. The showers at any public swimming pool scare the CRAP out of me. They are all so creepy.
Thanks for the story!
