I See Dead People
I have been ghosted by Lisa at Laughing Orca Ranch so I have to tell a ghost story. I could tell of the time I heard someone open the back door and walk around the kitchen but when I went to look....no one was there! I'm not.
Because I see dead people. Lest you think I'm crazy, hear me out. I don't get it either.
It all started when Hubby and I moved into a small house in the quaint town of Steilacoom. I would go to sleep and I would wake up in the middle of the night with someone standing by my bed. I'd wake up and see them and scream like crazy. Poor Hubby would wake, ready to fight off whomever, only to see no one. But he could tell I felt like I really did see someone. And frankly......I do really see someone. I have seen women, men, old and young and even dogs once. They aren't trying to hurt me, just looking at me. I thought the house in Steilacoom was haunted but I see dead people at all the houses we have lived in, and even at the Westin in L.A.
This went on for 25 years. Me waking, seeing someone looking at me, me screaming, Hubby waking ready to fight, me going back to sleep, Hubby with the adrenaline flowing unable to get back to sleep. For 25 years.
One day I was talking to my very religious sister when I told her about my dead people sightings. I told her I really do see someone. She wasn't a bit surprised. She told me the devil was trying to scare me and I was to do the "devil get thee behind me" thing. Now that really scared me!
So that night, when I went to bed, I said my prayers and said the "devil get thee behind me" thing.
I have never seen them again.
