It was late one evening in the middle of the summer of 2006. My boy Joey, his younger brother Jeremy, my (now ex) girlfriend, Rosanna who we called Roxy, and myself were all swimming in my neighborhood pool. Joey and Jeremy ,the little brother, were sitting on each end of the pool throwing a football, and Rosanna and I were swimming in the middle of the pool doing our mushy couple thing. The subject at hand was ghosts and being able to see them. We got on that subject because the previous night I, she, and a few of our other friends used an Ouija Board. (I'll post that story later. It's my most incredible experience)
We were there talking, and I kept asking her if she seen anything because her eyes weren't really focused on us. You know, just wandering about the property staring at nothing from what I could see. She said no and focused back on the conversation. Joey being the skeptic that he is started making wise cracks about the ability to see ghosts and about other things of the paranormal nature. I, myself, am very respectful of the dead and spiritual world so I kept quiet and asked him to grow up and stop being immature.
On a side note, Rosanna can see things. She was blessed or something when she was a child and has had the ability to see these spirits and anomalies since she can remember. She's shared many incidences with me about what she's seen. I found it out one night when we were sitting on her porch outside and she kept looking behind me and following something with her eyes, and I would turn around and ask her what the hell she was looking at. She would smile and give a little giggle and say, "nothing..." Then after a few hours she cracked and told me. So, I became very interested in ghosts and the paranormal more than before asking her all kinds of questions and stuff.
Well back to the story. So, it's about 6:30 or 7ish, and Joey's making fun of my girl's gift. Jeremy was just sitting in the pool quiet because he was one of the people that was in the room from my story about Ouija Boards, and I'm sure either he believed in the board or just didn't want anything to do with the conversation at hand. Joey's still trying to go on and on about there's no such things as ghosts and that they're made up things that people say they see or hear to get attention. When he said that I seen my girlfriend's eyes focus on something in the grass behind Joey. Of course I noticed this and asked her what she seen. She didn't answer the question. She just leaned in and whispered in my ear that "They don't like Joey..." I asked her why, and she said, "They get mad when he talks about them and makes fun of them..." I then asked her again what she seen. She said there was a girl standing over him trying to push him in the water off the steps of the pool.
By this time it had gotten really dark out, and there was only one street light in the pool area. Rosanna said she was getting scared and that she was seeing other spirits coming across the field. (Mind you I lived out in the sticks in this nice little subdivision in the northern Florida. There are big fields, trees, and randomly placed houses everywhere.) So, I told them it was time to go home. We had already been there almost 4 hours. (The pool was our "stomping grounds" when we were teens. We swam there every summer for countless hours.)
As we were all making our way across the pool to the side closest to my truck, I seen my girl look back where Joey was and turned around and continued to swim, but faster. I asked her again what was going on. She said that the little girl had jumped into the pool with us and was trying to "get" Joey, and that there was a tall man walking along the side of the pool with him as he was swimming. All the color in her face was gone. (Rosanna was from Nicaragua, so she was pretty tanned.) She was as white as I am, and I'm pretty damn white ha-ha.
We made it to the truck and started making our way down the dirt road to Joey's house to drop them off. Well we were ascending from this small slope in the road and I had my high beams on. We came up over the top of the hill and my lights shined over this huge field of grass, and about 3-400 yards ahead of me I seen this figure. Now I've NEVER seen any kind of apparition or figure in my life at this time (as bad as I would like to), and I see this tall white figure walking on the road. As soon as my beams shined on it directly, it just took off across the field like a bolt of lightening and disappeared. I thought maybe it was a reflection, but there was nothing in the field and as soon as it hit the darkness it was still just as white as it was when the light was on it. I didn't want to say anything to her until I dropped them off.
So, after I dropped them off I proceeded to tell her what I had seen, and to my surprise, she had seen the same thing. I was kind of at ease because she had seen it too and I knew it wasn't just my imagination playing tricks on me. So, being all excited and hyped that I had seen something FINALLY, she told me about this old church that was a few miles away from her house.
We drove there in about 20 minutes. The road the church was on had branched off the County road about 3 miles from my girl's house. She had told me before it was really creepy and that she had only been down there once before now. I knew the church was there because one of my old friends used to live down that road. He and another house were the only houses on the road that I had ever seen, but he lived about a mile and a half down from where the church was located.
We got there around 9 or 9:30 pm. She pointed out the church on the left hand side. It was as run down as it was when I had been past there when I used to visit my friend. It looked really creepy now that the darkness was really set in around the place.
She told me to slow down really slow and just leave my parking lights or fog lights on. So, I dropped the gear down into 1st, and turned off my lights. I actually came to a stop parallel to the area in between the cemetery and the church. About 45 seconds went by and nothing. Then all of a sudden, Roxy leaned up and looked out my window and whispered, "Go..." I was like, "Huh?" Then she spoke loud and clear, "GO! They're coming!" So, I didn't want to wait and ask questions. I starting rolling off and she screamed, "GO FASTER! They're running after us!" So I punched it spinning in the dirt. By now she was screaming frantically to go faster. She said they were on the bed of the truck trying to get in. I was about to freak out cause almost as soon as she said that, I started to hear rapping on the back glass of the truck. Then, she starts freaking out that there was a woman on the hood snarling at her with her hands on the windshield. So, I being a smartass turned on the wipers. Apparently that didn't help because now I can see the handprints on the windshield and I'm flipping the hell out! We drove father down the road at about 50 mph until I reached my friends old house. By then, the tapping had stopped. I turned around in the driveway, and there were people in the yard, I'm sure wondering what the ---- was going on, but I didn't want to tell them what just had happened. For all they knew, we were drunk and just speeding down the road.
I took Roxy home kissed her goodnight and went home myself. The next day my parents came in my room and woke me up all pissed off. I was asked them what they were so upset about, and they showed me this big dent in the left side quarter panel with white scratches on it. I told them I didn't know what it was from, and didn't dare tell them what had happened the night before because I knew that they wouldn't believe me.
I called Roxy to tell her what my parents had found on my truck. She answered the phone and sounded like she had just woke up so I offered to let her go back to sleep. She had told me she hadn't gotten any sleep from the night before because "they" were messing with her all night. She said that they had completely trashed her room throwing clean clothes all over her floor and knocking her jewelry cabinet off the dresser and shattering it. I went over there within minutes. I was very surprised when I walked into her room and found stuff everywhere because I knew how neat she was and how everything "had to be in place".
Thanks For Your Time And God Bless!
I will be posting the other Ouija incident Very Soon
