When I was a kid, about 6 or 7 years old, I remember waking up in the middle of the night and seeing a man sitting in my room reading a book. I said hello to him and he ignored me. I tried speaking to him again and he again ignored me. I remember thinking in my head, "well if you don't want to talk to me, I don't want to talk to you either!" and I laid back down. I remember this all vividly, and I especially remember that I was not scared. A few years ago (I'm in my late 20's now) I was relaying this story in the company of my mother and she said that she remembers me insisting that there was a man in my room reading a book, but that she thought I was dreaming or something about it.
I want to know who the man was. Did I dream about it? Did I really see him, and if so, who was he?
Another mystery is that I want to know what happened with my great-grandmother. There is a whole missing chunk of her life that everyone refuses to talk about. Apparently her family knew where she was and they were in contact with her occassionally, but no one will talk about what happened. I know that she left with some women (who have been described as "evil") and went to New Orleans where they participated in "evil" things that involve and element of magic or something. She died at a very old age, but she apparently always felt haunted about whatever she did during that time period. It's also strange because I can't get a grasp of when all of this happened. On one hand they say that she was gone when she was very young and that she was gone for about 20 years, but then my mother doesn't remember meeting her until she was older (and they lived next door to my great-grandfather, her husband) so that would mean that she either wasn't young when she left, or she left for much longer than 20 years, or maybe she left and came back a few times.
Anyway, I really want to know what happened with my great-grandmother. I want to know what the big secret is. Is it really as bad as everyone makes it seem?
