Time: almost a decade ago.. About the fourth afternoon in summer.
Location: the building by which we live in Egypt, Mahalla town, specifically the second floor, where we live on the third.
Event: My wife’s sister, whom was aged at this time twenty years on her way to visit us and when she got into the building by which she started to climb over the stairs leading to the flat where we live and when they stepped up to the second floor landing encounter someone in the same moment, making her pay attention to it, but soon she had a smile on her lips as he was a person familiar who had to talk to him many times and was the grandfather of her friend too, which lives on the fourth floor, he was distinctive with his white beard White elegant, well-known by the stick and the head cover is also white, which makes you feel as he is illuminated man Approached the man while getting her to almost separated by one degree So the peace to deliver him by a smile, saying: “Hi my grandfather” as used in the vision but the man quickly passed but did not turn to a familiar and non-existent and completed the landing of the stairs quickly and if he wanted to catch up with something, turn she felt him by a little embarrassment for neglecting greeted friendly, but not any interest and indifference to the past than to the unknown.
My wife’s sister came to our apartment and entered the reception room and sat down to talk share and suddenly said: “I happened during the embarrassing position of going up to you and then recounted what happened and felt sorrow because the man did not read too much attention, and during that my wife and I exchange looks of surprise which held in tongues, and finally delivered It is my wife asked: Whom did you meet? She said: my grandfather”s friend I told you my sister? My wife said: Impossible! The old man with a white beard who lives above us,she said yes, he was, and began to feel worried, she said Why does it seem surprising to you and why all these questions and I told her: You are certain that you met the man now? she said: sure I met him on the stairs a few moments ago, then I said: Of course not the man, but she was impatient and shouted: can not be missed in a man I have known him a long time and its shape is very distinctive and has no equal in the same floor, I’m very concerned about what happened? I am bored of all of these questions.
Where there was silence for a few seconds and we were still exchanging worried glances my wife and I,then her sister said: Did I make something wrong? but she did not find clear answer only surprising that it was still on our faces, she shouted loudly and said : I’ll go if you do not answer, Finally I said to her voice shaking: the man who you met died two months ago. She called out in fear: What?! You sure joking me, and looked to us but as confirmed on our faces and looks of horror and fear in our eyes owned a panic like a delirious wondering: oh my God ,whom I met now ?! and vowed that he himself was the man, but he seems strange it seemed that he could not feel any body beside him and quickly was not commensurate with his age and decency usual
This is a real story and I certify that these events was happened as I saw the true terror at the face of that witness and I am sure that she met a ghost of this dead man.
