She Just Wanted To Play

Alrighty. I had this "encounter" when I was 13 years old. I lived in a 2 story house at the time. Ok. On with the story.

One day, I had a friend to come over and stay the night. My parents were gone to Tunica, and my sister was babysitting. Anyways, it was getting late, and my friend and I were gonna head on to bed.

My sister was already in bed on the top floor. As me and Rob went to go get something to drink before bed, I felt a horrid feeling come over me. I thought I was going to collapse. I suddenly felt that something bad was gonna happen. Rob asked if I was Ok and I nodded. I told him what I felt, and he just laughed and joked with me about it. I ignored him and poured a glass of water. When I was done, we headed off to bed.

Our room was on the top floor, and at the top of the stairs was a double door that lead to the bedroom. To the left of it was the room where my sister was sleeping.

The hall light was on but all the other rooms lights were off. Anyways, I was in front of Rob and we reached the staircase. As I looked up to climb them, the double doors were open, and I saw a black figure standing there.

As soon as I saw it, it quickly disappeared into my bedroom. Once again, I felt the feeling come over me and I kinda staggered. Rob asked if I was Ok again. This time I said "No" and told him that I didn't feel like sleeping in my room.

He was puzzled, but didn't question me. So we went back downstairs into the living room and I got a sleeping bag and he got on the couch and we went to sleep.

I awoke early in the morning around 3:20am or so, and saw that Rob was not on the couch. I got up to see if he had gone to my room, and straight ahead of me was a little girl. Her head was facing the ground and she was standing there silently. She had NO "Ghostly Aura" around her. She was just a little girl standing in front of me. The lights in that room were dim, so I could see her pretty well. She had red hair, and a yellow gown on with a big red star on it. She had no shoes on. At this point, I was VERY freaked out. I stood there for awhile and just looked at her. I couldn't see her face, for it was pointing toward the ground. I slowly took one step forward and VERY suddenly her face shot up and she was staring right at me. She had no eyes, just sockets, and no expression on her face. She just was looking at me with those bottomless eyes. At this point I was about to cry. She then emitted a low rumble and said something in a very deep voice. I know this will sound stupid, but it sounded like "Monyoooooooo" I was frozen with fear. The last thing that happened was she raised her right arm in the air and smiled. She and no teeth or gums. Her mouth was also empty. She then turned and ran out of the room, and I could hear her going up the stairs. Of course I didn't follow her. I just fell on my knees and cried myself to sleep. I awoke in the same spot and saw that Rob was back on the couch. I quickly woke him up and asked if he had seen anything. He replied "No. I've been asleep the whole time. "Right here?" I asked. He replied "Where else moron?" At that point I thought it was a dream, until my sister came down the stairs holding a small yellow gown with a red star. "I found this in your bedroom Daxer." she said. I told them both the story and they thought it was strange. So we searched the house but didn't find anything weird.

To this day I still wonder what happened that night. A few nights ago I had a dream. In the dream it was pitch black and I heard a voice. It was that of an older womans. "She just wanted to play" is what it said. I don't know if that had anything to do with it or not, but I can only wonder.


Allright. I'm a little scared to be writing this, and it took a lot of thought to decide if I should do it or not, and the reason for that is due to part one as you see above, and a little bit after it, THIS happened. If you haven't already, please read my previous first so you can understand this one, I guess. Anyways, on with the story.

My first story happened when I was 13. I am now 24 and love this site and was encouraged to tell you all about my experience that happened. Well, a little after I did, something happened.

My girlfriend and I had just got done seeing a movie (Cast Away) and I had just dropped her off. When I reached my driveway, I noticed that none of the lights in my apartment were on. Why is that strange? Because I always leave the light on in one room when I leave so that it doesn't look like I am gone (after my first encounter I am freaked out by anything).

Well, I thought to myself, I must have just forgot, and that was all. I unlocked the door to my apartment and stepped into the dark room. As I reached for the light switch by the door, I felt a horrid feeling. It was only in my head, and it lasted only about 2 seconds, but I heard a girl giggling, and then screaming a blood curling scream.

The door then slammed behind me and I charged for it, but it would not open.The lights were still off, and I stumbled in the darkness until I realised I knew what was happening. It was her again.

I fell on my knees and screamed, "What do you want from me!!!". Then I felt wind very harshly blow by me, as if someone had just ran right by, followed by foot steps, and then a winding sound, as if someone were winding up a music box. Next came the music. It was just like a music box would sound, and I cant really describe what the song sounded like.

Then, I heard the girl singing along with it, using "La" to sing the notes. After awhile, the music stopped, and I waited there, on my knees, for about 30 seconds. This next part I'm having trouble telling, because remembering it always frightens me beyond belief.

I had just begun to try and stand back up, when, well, it's so horrifying I cant really describe it, but a rotting face, that of the little girl, complete with the empty eyes, rushed out at me from the darkness screaming in a deep voice, like the one I heard her use before. It happened very fast, and then it was gone. I waited there, mostly waiting for me to die, for I was so frightened that is how I felt, until I quickly got up and flipped on the lights.

After they were on, I leaned against the wall and just cried. My face was to the wall, and when I turned around, I saw that my floor was covered in little pink notes.

In black pen, it wrote, "Why are you so scared to play with me? I just want to play."

If anything else happens to me, and if I don't die of fright or something else, I will no longer write about it, for I fear telling the story angers her, and, well, you get the idea. Maybe I should just play with her, or maybe I should just run....
