My best friend Payton visited for the summer and spent about a month at my house. She left today, and since I have nothing else to do and since I've been meaning to get around to it I decided I'd post a few stories tonight.
This story happened a few weeks ago when we were both trying to fall asleep. We both lay in bed talking for a while, and after some time we both started falling asleep. Sometimes when I try to fall asleep, I hear people talk. They never talk to me, but they talk amongst themselves. Half the time I only understand what they say while they say it, but when I come to realize that someone is talking, I don't remember what they say because it automatically stops.
But that night, it wasn't people that I heard talking, but the clanking of metal, and chains banging against each other. I immediately sat up and woke Payton and told her what I heard. I never really get scared when I hear people talk, but that night for what ever reason those noises seemed threatening.
Payton told me there was nothing to be afraid of, having experiencing worse things herself, so I tried to fall back asleep. Just as I was almost asleep I felt a really warm hand wrap around my left hand. It stayed there for a moment then let go. It left warmth radiating from my hand. When it let go, I could feel a kind and warm presence floating above me, as if protecting me.
Needless to say, I slept really well that night, knowing someone was watching out for me.
