I have a twin sister. We are as close as you can imagine twin sisters can be. I am going to recall an occasion in my childhood, that at the time,
scared me a great deal, and to this day is quite fresh in my memory.
I was about 11-12 years old, and my sister and I were sitting in our bedroom deciding what to play. We lived in Eastbourne, in a home right up against
the Downs - a heavily wooded and hilly area (here is the google map:
My old home in Eastbourne
. Our bedroom window faced the garden and the woods.
As we sat there we decided to play hide&seek. I ended up being the "seeker" while my sister ran off to hide. Counted to 10 and began looking for
her. Immediatly something caught my attention from the window. I looked outside and saw my sister pop-out from behind a tree smiling/giggling looking
right up at the window at me, and she went right back behind the tree as soon as our eyes met.
Of course, I ran outside, into the yard, and she was nowhere to be found. I looked behind the tree I had seen her pop out from, nothing. So I ran into
the part of the woods immediatly behind our house, up to where my parents allowed us to go, and still couldn't find her.
I remember feeling panicked and scared, and immediatly wanting to run to safety. I bolted back through the garden and into the house and started
calling out her name because I got so scared. She didn't answer back, so I continued to search for her, and she ended up coming out from the behind
the door of the downstairs bathroom. At that point I wasn't having fun anymore because I thought she cheated by continuosly moving her hiding spot.
So I asked her, "did you hide outside? behind the tree?" and she looked at me puzzled and said "no!". In fact I recall the clothing was totally
differnt too. The "twin" behind the tree was wearing a long white nightie and her hair was down, totally different than what she was wearing when I
found her in the bathroom.
I almost want to say I saw something that was akin to a mischievous/deviant looking being with my sisters visage?!?!?!?
To this day we both have no idea what that was. Was it my imagination?
Also, I do remember hearing a few vivid horrific voices in my ear while residing in that home. Also, the feeling of hands or pinching on my skin.
Never figured out what it was it was trying to say or what it was trying to, and have never heard or felt anything like that since.
Thoughts? Comments? Ideas of what/who/why I saw what I did?
