The night I got home from resident camp this year I called one of my best friends and told her everything that happened in the course of the week. By the end of me telling her everything I was almost in tears because I girl that shared a tent with me, who became like one of my best friends, is in real danger. I didn’t want to scare her and me tell her that how she is telling me, it sounds paranormal. But leaving her to believe that whoever is trying to hurt her is alive and very real, it broke my heart to see her so terrified. What my friend told me after all of this scares me even more.
Bethany has been having dreams, in these dreams she is being warned to run, someone is coming. The most that she has seen is an outline of a man, that’s it. She had those dreams the same nights that my tent mate freaked out.
I made a terrible mistake.
On the last day at the camp I was the last one in my tent. I was tying the flaps shut so animals couldn’t get in before the next Sunday when more girls would sleep there. I looked into the woods where my tent mate first saw the man (while at camp) and very clearly said for whomever was hurting her to leave her alone or they’d have to deal with me. Now I’m not much of a threat on most days, but you harm someone that I care about I’m going to be pissed. And pissed off redheads aren’t fun to deal with.
Bethany is refusing to tell me if she is still having these dreams and I have a horrible feeling that something bad is going to happen.
I was at my aunt’s house yesterday for my cousin’s bachelorette party. After we got back to Aunt Jenny’s house after dinner they were doing wine tasting. I’m underage by many years, but I was allowed to take a sip and join if I wanted to. I’ve had a sip of wine before and I nearly threw up. I decided to get my bathing suit back on and go swimming at night while everyone else was getting drunk.
I’m a strong swimmer, and the pool isn’t that deep. Maybe eight feet, if that. I ran and jumped into the deepest area, and right before I hit the water I saw a woman standing in the woods. As soon as I hit the bottom of the pool I shot myself to the shallow end, closer to everyone else. When I was above water again I looked for the woman and she was gone.
Alright, so that was okay. One of my cousin’s friends came over because she was wanted to know who was swimming. That’s understandable. That’s what I went with, and I forgot about it.
I grabbed one of those bed things for the pool (do they have a name?) that floats and I pulled it into the water. I went over to the edge to make it easier to get on. Once I was on I dog paddled my way into the center of the pool so I could freely float without hitting a wall. I was watching the stars and trying to find the third star to the summer triangle when I heard a splash in the water. I knew that no one was over there with me because I would of heard them walk around, or I would of at least seen them. I looked in the water, there wasn’t anyone with me. I sat up on the bed thingy and looked under me. Still no one. I laid back down, and then the bed was jerked towards the shallow end about three or four feet. I was floating in the water for about fifteen minutes beforehand, and nothing like that had happened. I dived off of the thing and swam the rest of the way to the stairs where I sat for about twenty minutes.
My aunt lives about fifteen minutes from Grand Rapids, MI, so there are a lot of people around. She has tons of oak trees in her backyard (huge backyard) and you can’t see the neighbors fence behind them. A bright blue light, almost like a cell phone light, came on behind a tree. I sat and watched it until it faded away.
After I had calmed myself down from the jerk forward I swam to the middle of the pool. I moved just my head backwards to look at the sky. Then something pulled me under.
It was just a jerk, real quick and I was back above water in almost no time. As soon as I got my head above I saw a man standing on the edge of the pool. He was there, I know that he was. But when I blinked he was gone.
I got out of the pool real fast after that and went over to watch them try the wine.
We all got in later, and I was swimming trying to push my mom under because she pushed me into the pool before I was ready. I felt really nervous the entire time.
We went inside one by one to go to bed. I was one of the last ones in. I slept on my aunt’s chair in the living room.
My cousin (the bachelorette) has a tiny dog that she brought. He was laying down next to her and when I came into the room he started to bark. That’s normal I know, I have a dog here at home who barks at everyone. But this little dog kept waking up in the middle of the night, look at me, and bark. Just at me. And where was the chair? In front of the window. What did you see through that window? The deep end of the pool. Could the dog of seen something behind me, outside by the pool, or was he barking at me?
Thank you for reading.
