This is my very first post after three years of reading ATS. I know enough to believe that this should be categorized as The Grey Area , but I am not
sure. This incident that took place in my childhood has stuck with me for years and I came here to this forum because I was hoping that someone else
would address it and I could sort of feel as though I wasn't alone. I have read similar incidents happening to others, but nothing that touches my
personal incident. I am looking for assistance. I have done searches. I have looked for explanations of it. I cannot find it. I think about it a lot.
My sisters do not want to talk about it. But I do. I want to know what I saw, why I saw it and just what the hell ?
Okay, I understand that I am to give full detail and background info to assist others in helping me. I also understand that I may or may not be teased
about this and have decided that I don't care about that much anymore. That was the reason why I didn't post this before so the fact that I am
telling this now, means I am over that. In any event, I will share as much relevant background as I can. Here goes. God help me.
When I was a little girl , my sisters and I were all outside at night enjoying the cool California breeze and just playing. I do not recall why we
were still up that late only that it was during Summer when school was out. We ranged in ages from 6 to 16. My older sister who was the teen , was
having strange psychological/spiritual issues. I say that because we were raised Christian and something happened to her that we as children
understood to be demonic, but now that I am an adult , I believe it to be possibly psychotic in nature. She was seeing things and needed prayer.
After she was "delivered" the first time, we were all outside playing and looking at the sky. This is when the incident occurred. All five of us
screamed out in terror at the same time as we looked at our next door neighbors house. I will tell you what I saw and what I believe my sisters also
saw because it was confirmed. I saw a dark creature that looked like a monkey/gargoyle with wings. It was large like a human, but too thin to be one.
It was looking at us and when we screamed , it jumped off the roof and was gone. My father , a preacher did not believe us at first when we ran inside
and told him and when we kept telling him that we did see it he angrily grabbed paper and pencils and sent us to different parts of the living room to
draw what we saw.
I freaked out when we came back and showed him what we saw because we all drew the same damn thing. My father still did not believe us and joked that
it looked like one of the flying monkeys from the Wizard of Oz and that we all must have gotten the idea from that movie. This did NOT look like that
and it made me more afraid because the one man who could protect us was him and he didn't believe us. I know the difference between a movie and this
thing. And my sister who had the "problems" earlier said that it was the same thing that was bothering and tormenting her but he didn't believe us.
Several months later on after school had started , we came home one day, to find my Mom trying to call my Dad to come home from work because my
sister who had the problem was crying with snot coming from her nose and walking in circles in the middle of the living room pointing at things saying
"Thank you Jesus". My Mother threatened to call a hospital if he didn't come home right now. When my dad got home he took her into a room and was
praying for her and we heard her screaming , banging on the door trying to get out and talking back to him very weird. It didn't sound like her, but
it was her. They were the only two in the room. This lasted for hours and when she came out, she was quiet.
Today, my sister is doing ministry charity work in Mexico and the only issue she has is Diabetes. Not the fat people kind , but the other one. She had
lost so much weight and she started losing her sight and needed surgery. Well, the surgery went fine and the last I heard of her from my other sister,
she joined and outreach ministry and was helping people in T.J. Mexico. But I am still left with the memory of the thing that tormented her and I want
to know why did four children see the same thing and respond to seeing it and her saying that it was the same thing that was , in her words ,
"bothering" her. ? Why did I see that ?
For those who see this as another spooky story, well, I hope you've been entertained. For those who believe me . What was that ? And why did we ll
see it ? And is there any scientific explanation for it ? If I were your friend and you knew me personally, what would you say to me ?
