When I was around 6 or 7, me and my family were up in Texas visiting our relatives. We were staying with at our grandparent's house during our visit with them. We would all stay in my grandma's room because she had a huge king-sized bed. I was the one who slept next to the window and well, at that time, I wasn't scared to sleep next to the window.
I was laying there waiting to fall asleep. I fell asleep eventually and then I was awoken by a unfamiliar voice. The voice was calling my middle name which was odd because no one really called me by my middle name at that time. The voice sounded like a young woman. Her voice sounded so gentle and heartwarming that to this day I cannot even forget her lovely voice. She was saying my name like if it was a lullaby.
I got up from the bed and walked over to where I thought the voice was coming from. The voice was leading me to the a mirror my grandma had in her room. I looked in the mirror and I saw a young girl standing there looking back at me. She was so beautiful. She had a white sparkling dress and beautiful brown hair. When I first saw her I got scared and I ran back to the bed and, as I jumped on the bed, I felt something scratch my elbow and I realized that it was a nail that was poking out of the windowsill.
I woke my mom up and told her about the young girl. She just told me that there was nothing to be scared of cause it was all all a dream. So I just listened to my wise mother and went back to sleep. The next day I woke up and noticed that everyone had already woken up and was already in the kitchen eating breakfast. I got out of the bed and walked to the mirror again. When I looked in the mirror, I remembered about my elbow being scratched with the nail. I looked down at my elbow and there it was, the scratch from the night before. Till this day, I still remember the girl and this story, but I kind of kept the story to myself, now afraid that no one would believe me.
But I know what I saw that night and I will never forget that beautiful lady.
