I am 26 years old now. I do not consider myself gifted with the ability to see spirits, but as I grow older, the encounters seem to be getting more frequent. The most memorable encounter though, is the very first I've ever had. My eyes still get watery when I remember. It's dumb to be afraid now, but just remembering makes my hair stand up.
I was twelve years old. I went to school on a Saturday for dance practice. My friends were there. We practiced, we ate snacks, and we talked. It was a great day. As afternoon came, we grew tired and just talked while we waited for our parents. I remember that there were three girls with me. For some reason, I looked up at the third floor of the new building where my classroom was. And that's when I saw her. I will never forget her face.
She looked terribly pale and thin. She was wearing something light-colored but I couldn't tell if it was a school uniform because the white lace curtains were surrounding her. The first thing that came to my mind was that no student was allowed inside the classrooms on Saturdays, and she was breaking the rules. Her eyes moved. She looked to the left, just her eyes. Her face remained still. And then she did the weirdest thing. Her eyes looked at the school grounds in a slow 'rolling motion'. From the left, her eyes looked up, then to the right, then down (like she was trying to look at her nose). Then left again, and then up, right, down... I stood there staring at her. Until she rolled her eyes one last time... And when she looked down, she stared at me. She looked at me like she was angry at me for staring at her.
My friends said goodbye. I, the idiot who thought she was so brave, decided to go up to the third floor and confront the girl who was breaking school rules. At that point, I still had no idea that the girl wasn't human. And yes, when I got to the room, the door was locked. I peered through the glass portion of the door no-one at the windows nothing but curtains.
I remember running down and getting out of the building in a hurry. I felt like I couldn't run fast enough, that everything was in slow motion. I didn't tell anyone until much, much later.
