Before I begin, let me tell you a little bit about my kids and me. (My profile has more info if you are interested.) We're just like a lot of you; we have "ghostly activity" everywhere we live. I've experienced spirits for over 30 years. My 18-year-old daughter and 8-year-old son have been exposed to them for most of their lives. So we aren't new to this and pretty much take things in stride. However, this one absolutely terrified me.
It was late February or early March of 2009, and my little boy and I were having dinner. My daughter was with a friend, so it was just Dalton and me. Dalton had been hearing voices in his head for about a week, but he couldn't figure out what they were saying. I really didn't get too excited because of the abnormal (paranormal) state of our lives. I figured since the three of us can hear voices, he was just mentioning it. Anyway, Dalton and I were eating dinner at the table when Dalton said "what?" I told him I didn't say anything. Again he said "what?" and cocked his head like he was listening to someone. Only this time he was a little bit impatient. I told him, again, that I didn't say anything. He said "I'm not talking to you, Mom." I asked him who he was talking to. At this point, I really wasn't thinking anything about it. I was in my own little world and really didn't pay attention until he said he was talking to "them." That definitely got my attention. I asked him who and he said "the boy and girl." He said, "why they messin' with me, Mom?" I told him I didn't know and asked him what they were saying to him. My heart stopped when he said "they want me to go with them." I think I had a heart attack when he said that. I know I couldn't breathe and I got chills all over me.
I told Dalton to tell them he can't go with them. Ever. So he said, very quietly, "I can't go." I told him he needed to tell them louder and make sure they understood and he very strongly said "I can't go with you. Leave me alone!" He then told me they were gone. I told Dalton that he can't ever go with anyone when they ask him to go, unless I tell him he can; especially when they are talking to him in his head.
This absolutely terrified me. I still want to cry when I think about it. I don't know what would have happened if it had just been my daughter and Dalton at home. I thank God I was there when they asked him to go with them. This has to be the scariest thing that has ever happened to me; even more than the incident when I was 16 and more than the evil man I heard in my head 10 years ago (future submissions). The scariest thing about this is the "what ifs" that go around in my head when I think about this. Dalton is so trusting, I'm really afraid he'd have gone with them and I'd never have gotten him back.
I wonder now if this happens a lot; if this boy and girl (I believe they were demons - they can't be anything else) convince children to go with them and the children are never seen again. I know it's possible. Look what could have happened to us.
