When I lived in Los Angeles I worked the graveyard at a hospital. I had begun a friendship with a security lady who I called C and who always stayed in the lobby. That was her post so every night I worked I would go see my buddy C.
I used to love going over on my break because we would talk the night away. The night would get interesting and the hours seemed to fly by. The good thing is that during the graveyard shift there wouldn't be any supervisors so sometimes we would all take advantage of our breaks and we'd tell of eerie things we had experienced like our encounters with the ones who belonged to the other world.
One night me and C where sitting in the lobby goofing around like always when out of no where we both turned in the same direction towards the E.R. Doors and saw a light heading towards the doors. The first thing we did was look at each other puzzled. We both at the exact time asked, "Did you see that?" "Yes!" we responded.
It was the strangest thing. It was like 2 a.m. And we were the only ones in the lobby. We both saw it. A light that didn't just flash by but walked itself along the wall towards the E.R. Doors. There was nothing that could've reflected that light. It also didn't look like a light that a flashlight would make.
Another thing is the light wasn't just floating. It took it's time and it appeared like it could've been someone's head. I got the strongest feeling in the pit of my stomach that it was someone heading out and it wasn't someone from our world but from the spirit world. As I kept looking in the direction the ghostly or spirit light had headed out I was interrupted by C, "Oh, don't worry it's probably just a ghost."
When I asked C if she really believed it was a ghost, she responded, "We work in a hospital where people pass away all the time. Are you kidding, these suckers are here!" Just like that we both agreed and dropped the subject.
