Hey everyone, I just thought I’d share an odd event that happened to me when I was about 12 years old because I like weird/creepy stories and it’s getting close to Halloween! I would really like to hear a story from you too if you have one that you’d like to share! You can send it to me, reblog this post with your story, or make your own post (but tag me at the bottom so Ii can find it).
This story isn’t actually scary or anything, mostly just odd. Here’s a little bit of background info before I share the event: My cousin Shelby (whom was either 5 or 6 at the time) supposedly could see & talk to spirits. And from what I was told, this happened pretty often. So often, in fact, that her family wasn’t really freaked out about it when it happened. I did not know that she had this ability at the time this story took place though. I on the other hand have not had too many paranormal occurrences, and although I love paranormal things, I don’t like paranormal things happening to me. Okay, on to my tale now.
It was a normal afternoon, I was hanging out with Shelby at her house. We had just finished playing barbies and her mom brought us lunch to eat in her room. I was finishing up eating my food on this kiddie table next to the bedroom window. The window was larger than your average window, the blinds were open and there were not any curtains hung up yet. You could see the front door and pathway to the house through it.
Shelby had her karaoke machine on and was caught up in singing/dancing while I was watching her when in my peripheral view I saw some kind of small black and white spotted animal run up to the front door to the house. I immediately could tell it was a dog just by the way it ran up and did a little circle. I turned my head to look at the animal, because animals rule. But when I looked out, there was nothing there! I would have just figured that maybe I imagined it, or perhaps the dog bolted off out of sight BUT a millisecond after I looked out the window, Shelby gasped and her microphone ploped to the floor. She squealed “Zoe!! Zoe’s here!!” as she ran up to the window.
I was thoroughly freaked out. I left the room while Shelby was still smiling with her eyes locked on the spot where I thought I had seen the dog. I found her mom and vaguely explained what happened in a few sentences because, like I said, I was FREAKED OUT. And her mom kind of chuckled and was like “Yeah, we used to have a little black and white doggie named Zoe but she passed away. Sometimes she will pay us a visit though! :)” And then I shit my pants and flew into the sun because NO THANK YOU.
Thanks for reading! I hope it was a good one. I can’t wait to read some of your stories too!! I have some more I could tell that are actually scary (but they didn’t happen to me, I just heard them from friends/family.
