My Mother's Ghost

I will start my experience like this I suppose. My experience as it is, happened about eight years ago. My mom’s dear friend who I had come to conclusions was like a mother to me in every way. She passed away from cancer when I was just a little girl. I am now 14 years old and starting high school.

Since my "mother’s" death I have seen all kinds of strange occurences, but one in particular which will haunt me for the rest of my life. I was sitting at my computer all alone in my house and I had my hall light on as I always do. I looked up for a moment when I heard a strange noise, and like I said no one was home with me!

I saw nothing at first and returned to what I was doing, and soon enough I saw something out of the corner of my eye. A black shadow that was nothing but a blur at first. But then it changed into a figure and became my "mother"! Coming towards me saying something but no sound came out. She looked at me for a second and vanished. I never saw her again to this day. I still wonder what she was trying to say...
