We Saw our Friend as a Spirit


At the time I was about 9 years old and my best friend Celia had just had her birthday the day before and turned 9. Me and my other friend Greta stayed the night at her house. We had a normal fun night like any kid that would stay at their friends house.

The next morning we got up and we played our favorite game to play at that age, hide and go seek. But we decided to mix it up. Celia would go hide and me and Greta would both seek because you see, celia was a VERY good hider. Me and Greta were in celia's moms bedroom counting and by the rushing footsteps we could tell she was having trouble trying to find a place to hide.

Finally we finished counting and stood up. We yelled "Celia you better find a place fast! Were coming!" and we stepped out of the bedroom to see "Celia" rushing into her bedroom (which was directly across the hall.) Me and Greta thought Ha! We've got you now! But this "Celia" was kind of foggy looking and didn't exactly have anything from the hips down and she floated through her bedroom door. For some reason me and Greta paid no attention to this and barged into Celia's bedroom. We looked all over that bedroom and Celia was no where to be found. She couldn't have possibly gotten out without us seeing for her bedroom wasn't exactly big.

So me and Greta, still in celia's room, shouted "Celia just come out we can't find you!" and the next thing we know Celia came from the living room. Me and Greta exchanged a glance as to say "I thought I saw her go in there?" at that moment I said "Greta was it just me or didn't I see her do into her room?" Greta was like... "no... I saw it too..." celia stood there wondering what the heck we were talking about. I then asked celia how she had slipped out of her room without us seeing her. She said "I was never in my room I was behind the couch the whole time" Then me and Greta started to think about how we had seen her. She was transparent, glowing, kind of foggyish, had no legs, and walked through the door. But it looked EXACTLY like her! We told celia what we had saw and we just though about it for a while.

The first thought that came to mind was GHOST! And we did what any smart little kid would do, we ran into the dining room to her mom to tell her what had happened. Her mom told us we were imagining it but I know we weren't. We spent the whole day trying to figure out what had happened and I thought maybe Celia's life was slipping away and her spirit had gotten out of her but she was technically still alive. You get what I'm saying? But celia said she felt just fine and never felt as if her life was slipping away.

Does anyone know what this could have been? Celia said she didn't even feel like she was out of her body or anything. I am now 13 and we still have not figured this out. It puzzles our mind even today!

My Friend Celia actually HAS had another weird experience in her house...well...atleast she tihnks its weird I don't think of it as much of anything. Her mom was out of town and her grandma was watching her at Celia's house. Celia closed the door to her mother's bedroom because that's where they keep the dogs when they are gone (they were about to go to the mall) Her grandma forgot something in the room and went back in to get it and the door was locked... The door only locks from the inside (trust me I've stayed in that room many times). They had to go outside and climg through the bathroom window and unlock the bedroom door. Celia says you can't lock the door then shut it but I have no idea.

We didn't know she was hding behind the couch since we tohught we saw her walk into her room and we didn't get to find where she was hiding until we got creeped and called her out. When we first saw the "thing" we weren't exactly comprehending it until we realized thta celia wasn't in her room that she was in the living room. Do you get it?

Celia--master hider, inventor of such implacable hiding places as "behind the couch..." You really need TWO people to find a girl who hides behind furniture? Seems like a set-up to me...

Sorry, there are some inconsistencies here that raise red flags to me. A glowing, foggy half-girl with no legs that disappears into a room doesn't make you stop DEAD in your tracks? Just doesn't add up to me.

...but hey, that's just me, and what do I know?

That might explain a lot, they call it 'out of body experience'.Your friend Celia must have an ability to let her spirit out of her body, but it doesn't fit because if her spirit is out of body, you might have not been able to be a full body spirit, but that still does not fit the part that your friend Celia is half bodied spirit. ❤

There is a possibility that what you saw was a doppelganger, SnowClaw.
The literal translation of the German word is "double walker", meaning someone who is acting the same way as another person. They have the same traits and are often times called the "evil twin". But that does not mean that they do evil things.
Just a thought.
Thank you.

This could of been just a "copy cat ghost". I seen my uncle stand next to a man that looked just like him, in his house once. Yet my uncle was not dead, and he lived a long life after that.

Do you know the history of this house? It might be interesting to find out, if anything happen in there. It could explain what happen with you.

Nope, there have been no other ghost experiences in that house. Well except once but we figured out that her big sister was playing a joke on us.

God Bless!

Also one thing I forgot to add, I've seen a ghost of a girl that looked exactly like me at my grandmothers house. But I'm sure it wasn't me. ❤

Thanks for your story
Well, I think it might be a ghost, Maybe your friends mum didn't want to tell you if there was a ghost so she wouldn't scare you. Has anything else happened in the house that you know of?
