This is my second story and experience with ghosts, to be honest I'm not sure what this was, it looked ghostly.
I remember in my early teenage years - I was maybe 14-15, I lived in an old school in the country, civilization was quite the drive away. Luckily my best friend lived nearby (by nearby I mean 15min drive) and we saw each other outside of school often.
I remember one night she came round to stay, usual teenage girl banter and we went to sleep. My bedroom had my single bed under a window on a slanted roof, and her makeshift bed was on the floor near mine, so I could see all of her very well. I remember waking up in the night and looking at my friend, and then I got a shock. I saw her ghost standing at the foot of her bed, she was very pale and she was in her PJs but her hair was down, rather than tied up. She had an ethereal glow about her and I had no doubt in my mind that it was her ghost which is puzzling as she was very much alive. I was petrified. Her ghost had one hand on her chest just resting and she looked very protective at... Well, her 'human' self. The ghost of her slowly looked at me; she didn't feel threatening but looked protective. She didn't look at me for very long and returned to gaze at her 'human' self. I was so scared I remember throwing my duvet over my head and curing up in a ball. Then my friend mumbled something... "Sui... Get back into bed..." I was thinking, oh my god I AM in bed.
It took me, what felt like an eternity to get to sleep. In the morning I told my friend what I had experienced but she didn't believe me, which really annoyed me. I also told my dad, who did believe me (Thank you dad!) I'm sure he said it could be her from a parallel universe, or a guardian angel. My friend also told her dad what I'd seen and he said to see the ghost of someone living was a bad omen and that she may die. That scared me. Thankfully she is alive and well to this day! Over 10 years on.
I still don't know why I saw the ghost of my friend, and I know I wasn't having a very vivid dream, I was wide awake and saw what I saw.
What do you think it was?
Can we see Ghosts of the living or apparitions of them?
It's the second time I ever saw a ghost.
