|My Daughter and Her Family 2011|
We never got to the bottom of what was actually causing the weird personality change or the conversations Vehda (vay-duh) would have with "Kika" which were quite eerie, but they stopped soon after they moved away from the basement apartment next to the cemetery. For these reasons, I was thoroughly intrigued and feeling a bit "crawly" when Brittney (my daughter) shared this conversation with me yesterday:
Brittney: Mom, if I tell you something, you can't tell anyone else, okay?
Me: Of course I won't tell, what is it? (thinking of the possibilities to myself...is she pregnant with my fourth grandchild, thinks her husband is cheating, etc...guess I'm not very good at keeping secrets since I am telling the world right now!)
Brittney: Well, I was sweeping the floor the other day and for the first time in my life I was actually terrified that we have a ghost! (I'm thinking, ooh this is juicy - she can't possibly relate the events quick enough...but is she in danger?)
Me: Oh my god, what happened!?
Brittney: The house was cold so I had my blanket wrapped around my shoulders. When I bent over, to position the dust pan, I felt my blanket lifting up! I froze in that position and it kept moving ALL BY ITSELF! I was really scared - nobody else was there except the kids - one sleeping and one playing in the other room!
Me: (feeling tingly chills - thinking of how the presence of ghosts makes the room cold) What happened?
Brittney: I was still hunched over and I turned my head to try and see what was behind me. I saw my blanket moving up above me, moving higher while I was still!
Me: (eyes wide open wishing she would talk faster) What WAS it?!!
Brittney: I have honestly never been so scared in my life Mom, but I got the courage to reach for the blanket...you CAN'T laugh...the broom handle which had been leaning against the table had caught under my blanket and was pushing it up! The more I bent over, the more it pulled the blanket off of me!
Me and Brittney: (LOTS of laughter! I broke another promise by laughing!)Share your stories, crafts, rituals, parties, events, traditions and much more in The 2011 Countdown to Hallowe'en from The Whimsical Cottage, or check out The Real Witches of Halloween from Witch Blog!
