It was the autumn of 2006 when my story took place, which made me 10 years old.
I was at my grandmother's house, and my brother, grandmother and I were watching something on TV. Let me describe the living room: when you walk in there from the kitchen, dead ahead there is the balcony door, and just about more than half a meter beside the door, is a couch. The TV is just by the left wall. By the right wall is another couch, where my brother and grandmother were sitting.
I was sitting on the couch by the door, not really paying attention to whatever we were watching. I've also made it a habit to look through the glass door, because Swedish autumn evenings are kind of mysterious, and somehow fascinating.
I was shocked to see a woman outside the door. She was tall (about 180 cm) and had curly hair that reached her back. She was wearing something that looked like a 19th century ball gown. Her eyes were staring straight forward, and I don't think she saw me. But she didn't look like a regular person. She was like water: you could see right through her (literally). But it was like grey-ish water. The woman looked like she was about 18 - 20 years old. She was stretching her hand forward, as if she was going to open the door. But just as she was about to touch the handle, she vanished.
Now I am 14 years old, and this still interests me. When I was 12, I was on a camp with some friends. We were telling ghost stories, and I told this story. Then something I never expected happened. Daniel told me he had seen this woman too. Apparently, my description fitted the woman he had seen perfectly.
When I was 11, however, I was in a theatre group. It was the day of the show, and we had just acted it out for the first time, and we were going to have lunch. Only Nike and I were left and I told her, too, about this mysterious woman. She said immediately that the one I had seen was the White Lady. She was a good spirit. But I was lucky - the White Lady has a twin, namely the Black Lady, who is an evil spirit.
If you have seen this peculiar woman, tell me. I've been wondering about this for a while.
