This is actually something I'd like to ask others' opinions about, and if anyone else might be able to interpret this very creepy, very strange event.
Several months ago, I recall being in that sort of limbo-state between asleep and awake. I remember sitting up, and standing there, just to the right of my bed was a black-haired boy who seemed to be wearing an old German school uniform. I'm actually German myself, so I'm not sure if there's a connection with that or not, but here's the creepier part.
As soon as I saw him, it was as though someone had flipped a light switch and I heard a rush of several different sounds at once. I heard the sounds of whipping and children screaming and the thumps of bodies being hit against something or each other. The boy began to cry tears of blood and he held his hands out to me as if offering something that wasn't there. All he said to me was, "Look - blood and salt - salty blood." His voice was barely above a whisper but it was so overwhelmingly loud that it hurt my whole head.
I remember feeling a sharp jolt like when someone splashes you with cold water, and then I looked around and the boy was gone but I was still sitting upright. I can't be sure if I was really asleep or awake.
I hadn't watched any horror movies or anything that might have triggered it, and I wasn't under a whole lot of stress. The thing is, I'm usually pretty good at sensing a presence, even when I can't see anything. I can also read auras. I've never had any sort of sense of children or child-spirits in my home. I've since moved away from that house, but the dream, or experience, whatever it was, still haunts me to this day.
