When I was a kid my best friends older brother would baby-sit us when my parents went out, we would watch terminator to give you an idea how long ago this was. It was typical for me to pass out on the couch.
One particular night I woke up in the middle of the night. I sat up and looked over the back of the couch into the dining room to see if I could catch a glimpse of what time it was. To my surprise there was a little girl sitting at the far end of the table. She looked to be about 7 years old, she was wearing a dress and she has this green ambience to her. I wanted to talk to her because she was just sitting there staring off into space, she didn't seem to notice me looking at her.
I couldn't muster up the courage to talk to her so I laid back down on and tried to go back to sleep. About an hour later I looked up over the couch again and she was in a different chair, this time facing my direction but her head was down looking at something on the table. I watched silently to see if she would do something, she sat there for a long time, then eventually got up and walked through the wall into the backyard. Once she was gone I turned on the lights and investigated the area she had been in. The room was a lot colder than the living room, but other than that, there was no sign of her doing anything in particular. I went back to sleep and that was the last time I saw her.
The only other incident was when me and the neighbor kids were camping out in my backyard on our trampoline, we had a ton of blankets and pillows out there and were just goofing off late at night. We had 2 really large oak trees in the back yard, one had a bee hive in the trunk and someone had cemented the holes shut in what I assume was an attempt to trap them in. We would always mess with the hive for fun, we were dumb kids you know? We always threw rocks in the hole or did something to taunt the bees, then wed go running off to get away from them, it was our form of entertainment.
Well while we were all sitting on the trampoline telling jokes and what not, we heard a loud boom, and a bright ball of light shot out from the tree up in the sky, zoomed back around way above us then came slamming back down into the tree. It scared the crap out of us at first, and we stayed up all night to see if it would happen again.
To our disappointment nothing happened at all. The weird thing is there is a knot in the side of the tree that looks like a human skull, its probably just a coincidence but it was our outlet for imagining what it could have been.
I'm not sure if anyone else has seen anything like this, I almost forgot about it until I found this site. I'm not a believer of orbs being anything significant because those who claim to have taken photos of them, don't seem to be trying to photograph them in the first place, so I come to the conclusion that its just a light refraction in the lens of the camera.
This incident was different though, I'm not sure I want to call it an orb, it was a bright ball of light that seemed to move around sporadically and it was loud and bright. Any ideas? This all happened before the mommy ego stuff.
