When I was about 14 years old I was staying with my Aunt, Uncle and Cousin for a week during the summer. They live in a rural area outside of Winston Salem, NC. My cousin and aunt had been asked by their neighbor across the street to tend to her flowers while she was out of town.
Now, my cousin lives down a long dirt road (at the time-is paved now) and a lot of woods surrounds her home meaning it is not visible from the road. Directly across from her driveway stands the home of her neighbor. It is a fairly large home. Some might say it is a 'McMansion'. The owner of the home was a woman, whose husband was a Judge in Forsyth County. He had recently passed away. I believe he passed away in the home, although I can not say that is a fact.
Late one afternoon we hopped in the car and drove over to her neighbor's home, to water her flowers. My aunt was using a watering pail to water some flowers while my cousin was getting the water hose. I was basically just along for the ride, watching them. My cousin became upset with her mother over something about the time we had got there. She was being a bit 'ill' towards having to water the flowers, I suppose.
My aunt made a joke that she better not mess up Mrs. Y's flowers because Mr. Y was going to get mad at her. We laughed at this, because obviously my aunt was just joking about a dead man being mad. About that time we started hearing what sounded like the wind blowing but there was absolutely no wind. Kind of weird, but they kept watering.
My cousin then pulled the hose right over a flower bed, when all of a sudden the noise of 'wind' became even louder! It was a very eerie feeling. My aunt got scared and told us to drop everything and get in the car. So of course, we ran and jumped in the car and my aunt took off. We were parked in the back and when we came around to the side of the house, I looked to my left into a large picture window on the home and saw what appeared to be a large blue glowing ball of light. It was there for a good 15 seconds. (About as long as it took to get to the end of the driveway.) I was in awe and couldn't say anything but "Oh my gosh!" I then told my family about the light. Neither one of them saw it. I am sure of what I saw though. There was no one in the home, no television on, no lights on, it was day time!
My aunt later told me that she just had a feeling of someone watching her, whether it was a 'ghost' or an actual person, she just felt we needed to leave and that it possibly wasn't safe. We returned with my uncle, after telling him what happened. He brought along his shot gun just incase, but there was no sign of anything or anyone. The house was locked up and there was no one on her property. So we left.
Just about a month ago I was visiting my cousin when she brought up this situation, only to tell me that the home had been broken into recently. She said that a police officer was walking around the outside of the home, looked into the big picture window and saw a bright blue ball of light.
The home had since been sold to another couple, who were not home at the time of the break in, and police were dispatched by their home alarm system. So there were only 3 officers on the property. The officer had told what he saw to my Uncle, in hopes my uncle could explain why this light had been seen, possibly, that the couple leaves the television on or have some other kind of light in that room, but my uncle had no explanation to give.
I would love to go back to this home now that I am older and not afraid. I would love to find out what this blue light was and see if there is any other activity that goes on there.
