The Guardian

I'm not quite sure what I saw, but I believe it was some sort of spirit or angel or what have you. I was about 10 years old. I was living in an apartment with my mother and sister at the time. I had alot of friends in the neighborhood so frequently I had guests over. Well it was one such night. My friend and I had spent a long day playing and being normal silly girls. That night we decided to have a sort of "camp out." We took blankets and pillows and made two spaces on the floor around the table. The table was to act as a sort of tent for us. The way we were on the floor was head to head sort of forming a right angle if you could see us from above. We settled in for the evening, she and I on the floor, my mother and her boyfriend in her room and my sister in hers. I woke up several times in the night, like I always had before. My skin sort of tingled and I sensed something, different in the air. I didn't think much of it, it wasn't the first or last time it had happened. It did make me nervous so I pulled my covers over my head and went to sleep. Later that night I once again woke up, this time I was more nervous. The air was peaceful, and very cool. It was also quiet in the house, and it was probably early morning. I had this weird habit as a child of sucking grapes when I ate them. I would sort of bite off part of the top and suck on it. I heard that sound now. I never heard that sound any other time but when I was eating grapes. I also heard some sounds like what I was told I sounded like when I slept. So these sounds were all associated with me. These things would help me understand what I saw that night. I looked around and sitting not more then 2 or 3 feet from me, there it was. I was so scared, yet felt so peaceful. I didn't know what to do. It was sitting on my friend she was on her side sleeping and it was there on her. It was really strange. I was scared but fascinated. I couldn't move, afraid it would do something to me. It was a human shape except its head. Its head reminded me of a horses. More like a cartoon horses head would be, not much definition. It was like nothing I'd seen before. Its eyes weren't there but more like black sunken in holes in its head. Its face was very pale and looked like bleached bones look. It looked as though it was smooth to touch. Its nose continued to follow the look of a horses, its nostrils were small oval slots. I couldn't really see a mouth on it. It didn't have ears either, but its hair followed the look of a horses mane, long and black. I don't remember what it was wearing. If I am correct it might have been like a robe. It continued to sit perfectly still, I would say now it looked like a warrior. It sat perfectly still facing forward not moving at all. I didn't know what to do. I wanted to scream but I was so afraid. I lay still and closed my eyes, hoping it would leave. I opened my eyes again, but it was still there. I became a bit more brave. I whispered to my friend but she was too asleep to hear me. I moved slowly towards her, carefully, slowly. It must have been almost ten minutes till finally I reached her. I shook her a little not taking my eyes from the creature. Finally she woke and just as she did, it vanished. I told her, something was on her, but I think she was too tired to understand. All the noises I heard earlier, like the sucking, stopped. What do I think it was? My warrior angel. He was really magnificent. It must have been, that explains why he didn't look human totally. I also knew somehow that he wouldn't hurt me. I know he was there for me because of all the clues, the noises, and I have always had a deep love for horses. I don't know why I was able to see him. I do know that there was a reason I did see him. I felt that nervous tingle again after that several times, maybe it was him and I didn't know it. I do believe I understand and sometimes see things that others can't. Once I was at a conference where people were dealing with some very difficult issues in there life. They were crying and all. I could hear the demons leaving them. I cried and people thought I was afraid, but I cried because I knew. Maybe that's why I could see him. Thanks for listening to my story. I know its not scary and it might not be a ghost story, but it was strange.
