(~Based on a true story that happened to me~)
It was a quiet afternoon. I was playing with my favorite toys. My candy was piled on a table. I ate one vanilla tootsie roll every 2 minutes.
Yep, today was a good day.
My mom was in her room playing stupid Facebook games, my brother was outside playing with a deflated ball, and my great grandma was taking a nap.
And I was alone.
It never bothered me that much, but I always felt like someone was watching me every since we moved in with our grandma. Nobody even died in here, yet I still felt a strange feeling every day.
I usually look around every minute to see if someone is there. Nobody ever was. Everything was fine.
Then another minute passed, and I looked behind me. Someone was standing there! She was black and white, just like an old picture. She just stood there, staring at me. I blinked once, and she was gone. I thought about it for a few minutes, then started screaming. I ran into my mom's room and hugged her. I told her everything that happened. My mom had a shocked look on her face when I was done. She told me it was just a hallucination. I believed her, and went into the hallway to get more candy.
That's when I saw the picture.
The woman in the picture looked just like the ghost I saw. I was ready to pass out now. I really saw a ghost...
That night, I tried not to think about it. Cartoon Network was on. I always watched it at night. But then it turned to Adult Swim. I watched Family Guy for a while, not getting any of the jokes, when it changed to a movie trailer. A movie trailer for a horror movie. I suddenly thought of my great great grandma's ghost. The next morning, I asked my mom about the ghost.
She said the ghost might be there to watch over me and keep me safe. Of course, I didn't believe her, until I had a dream about her that night. The ghost said she was there to watch over me. I believed the ghost and my mom now.
It's now been 5 years, and whenever I see my great great grandma's picture in the hallway, I feel like someone is watching me.
But you know what?
It doesn't bother me anymore.
