I came across this story that I wrote a few months ago and forgot to submit. The site was full at the time, and, well, I forgot!
This is October 19, 2009. The wind has been blowing quite strongly here in the desert for the last 24 hours or so which is not very unusual at this time of the year. However, three of us heard some unusual sounds last night, and one had a sighting. I would appreciate any and all theories as to what it could possibly be.
Last night, I was just dosing off, when I heard a male voice (I think) whisper in my ear, "hello." I was lying on my side, and it seemed to start behind my ear and continue toward my face, like someone flying past my head if you can picture that! I raised my head with a start, and looked at my bedroom door, and my son, Brandon, was standing there. He asked me and my husband, "Did you hear that?" I said, "What?" He said, "Someone screaming, or a loud moan."
Here in Las Vegas, we welcome any chance we get to open our windows and air out our homes. Last night was a great opportunity to do so. My husband likes to sleep with the television on. It being the month of October, everyone knows the kind of programs that are on. Well, we weren't watching any of those. Our bedroom window is at the back of the house, so my son thought that maybe we were watching a horror movie, since he was downstairs at the time he heard it, and it sounded like it came from the back yard.
Both Brandon and JR were in the kitchen, having just come home from shooting pool with their friends. It was about 10:30 pm. I asked them to describe the sound, but they couldn't. They said it was like a scream but not. I told them that since it was windy that night, maybe it was something blowing around or someone outside playing around in their backyard, and the sound travelled. They heard it two more times before they went to bed.
I woke at my usual time, had my coffee and at around 3:15 am, I went to the laundry room to get my work clothes. That's when I heard it. The best description I can come up with is, it sounded like a woman or girl would if you suddenly reached over and pinched her arm. Like: a short little loud "AHH!" Try it on someone and you'll get the idea. Don't pinch them hard though! LOL! Later in the day I gave this description to my boys and they said that yes that was it. It sounded like it came from the patio, right outside the family room window. So I went to investigate. I thought it could be a cat, but my dogs hate the one that comes onto the patio with the sole purpose of terrorizing them, and they where lying quietly on the couch, awake, but not nervous or anything, like they hadn't heard a thing! Nothing was scraping, nothing was blowing around and no cat! I took a walk around the back yard and peeked over all the fences and no one was outside playing around. I am at a loss as to what this could have been.
The next day I was telling this to my daughter and she said, "Wow. That's kind of weird, because I saw a little girl last night." She had been in her living room and had gone to the kitchen for a drink of water. She glanced down the hall and at the corner where my granddaughter's room is, she saw a little girl. She thought it was Zoe, so she told her to go back to bed. She got her water, and on her way back to the living room, she looked down the hall again, and the girl was still there, only she was peeking around the corner. Leslie placed her glass on the kitchen counter and went into Zoe's room. She was sound asleep, snoring and slobbering. I add that last part, because even four year olds can fake a snore. But they don't know they slobber! Leslie asked me around what time did the boys hear their noise and I said," You first." She said, "Around 10:30"!
Okay. What's everybody's take on this? Do you think that all of us experienced the same thing at the same time, different things at the same time or nothing at all? Those aren't the only choices though!
