This is my second post of a paranormal experience that happened to me, I can't remember this directly myself and has come from five reliable witnesses, my mum, dad, gran, great aunt and great uncle.
It was around Christmas and I was about 4 we were visiting my great uncle and aunt's house with my gran. It was mid afternoon time and I was playing with my toys by the fireplace. The fireplace was a big open fire; the house was built in the Georgian times, so imagine big tall ceilings and windows very grand. The fire obviously was not on in fact it had been unused for some time due to an accident that occurred many years ago. My great uncle and aunt had a daughter called Sophie who was roughly the same age as my mum, unfortunately when she was seven her nightgown caught fire and she suffered horrific burns and died later on in hospital, since then the fire had never been used. It was a family tragedy and obviously it took quite sometime to move on from.
I'd been playing happily all day by the fireplace and kicked up a fuss anytime anyone tried to move me, I was laughing and muttering to myself playing away and talking out loud, when my gran asked me who I was playing with and I just turned around and told them I was playing with Sophie. The room fell quiet and nobody knew what to say, I turned around and carried on playing. On the way home my mum asked me more about Sophie and I described a little girl playing by the fire in a nightgown.
Unfortunately my great aunt and uncle have passed on and the house was passed to my cousin who has a young son of her own who often sits and plays with Sophie by the fire, it doesn't seem to scare anyone, maybe I spooked them that first time, but I think everyone finds it quite comforting that Sophie's still in the house playing by the fire!
