The Closet (2)

Jule, Alberta, Canada
February 2000

One night I was laying in bed wide awake, for I could not sleep.I was laying on my side staring at my CLOSED closet for about half an hour when I remembered that I had school the next day so I rolled over with my back facing the closet, closed my eyes and tried to go to sleep but had no luck doing so. I rolled back over and looked back at my closet but now it was open! My eyes widened and I began to shake, I suddenly grew very hot and started to feel sick to my stomach for I knew nobody could have came into my room and I thought that I had a ghost in my room, right that second I heard the rattling of hangers banging against the metal pole and saw a shirt slowly coming off the hook. I glanced at the door and back to the closet to see somebody that I did not know holding up a shirt that she was very interested in. She looked at me and said something that I could not make out. It was as if she did not have a voice box or something.

I saw her lips moving but I could not hear anything. Then she just faded away along with the shirt. I was so scared I couldn't even open my mouth to scream and I felt as if I had been paralyzed. I was now very tired and finally fell asleep.

The next day my mom asked me if I had a good sleep. I was still terrified of last night so I did not say anything or even want to think about it even though I could not help it. It was the only thing I could think about so I simply nodded my head and went to school.

I still do not like to think about it.
