Bloody Mary Experience (2)

Victoria, Illinois, USA
February 2005

When I was a young girl I would attend many sleep-over parties. As many young girls did we would always play the game "Bloody Mary". For people that do not know about this game, you go in front of a mirror, turn the lights out, and repeat "Bloody Mary" a number of times. Supposedly you see the image of Bloody Mary in the mirror and if you do not either run out or turn the lights on fast she will stick her hands out from the mirror and scratch you! Well, of course this never worked for us...until one day.

I am now in college. I went home for Christmas break to visit my best friend since first grade. I ended up staying the night at her house. We were just remembering all the good times we had as kids and all the silly things we used to do. During this discussion we got on the topic of how we used to play Bloody Mary and how stupid it was since it never worked. We decided to play the game again just for old times sake.

We went into her bathroom, shut the door, and turned the lights off. Her bathroom had no windows in it so it was witch black in the room. We could not even see our hands in front of our faces! We held hands and began repeating "Bloody Mary". I am not sure on the exact number of times we repeated it, but I would say about ten. Then something appeared in the mirror. It was not a face of Bloody Mary at all. What appeared in the mirror was a green triangle. The triangle stated out small and grew larger. We stopped repeating the line and just watched this triangle grow in size, not sure what to think. We did not expect to see anything at all, especially not a triangle. If anything we thought we would have seen Bloody Mary herself. I can not say that I was very scared at the time, more like extremely confused and intrigued as to why we were seeing a triangle. I would say we just stared into the mirror in awe for about 30 seconds. All of the sudden I felt something grab my arm and I screamed. My friend started screaming too and turned on the light, opened the door, and pulled me out of the bathroom.

We ran into her bedroom and just looked at each other. I asked her if she saw anything. She too saw a green triangle that continued to get larger. She also felt someone grab her arm which freaked her out and made her pull me out of the bathroom. We closed that bathroom door and did not go in it for the rest of the night. To this day she will not use that bathroom if she does not have to. That bathroom is now always colder than the rest of the house, which it never was before. Nothing else happened, but I definitely think that this was a very, very strange experience. I do not know if there is a connection at all between Bloody Mary and a triangle, but that is what happened. Although this story may be a little strange, it is all very true.
