True Childhood Story

Living in my great grandma and grandpa's house, I slept in the room farthest from everybody else. Located near the newly remodeled dining room was my bedroom door, and nearby was a china cabinet displaying various photos with mirrors in the backdrop.

One evening I left my door open as my dog slept at the door to keep me company. It was unusual since he was always in my parents room, but the company was nice. As I slept on the top level of my bunk bed something had woken me. It was dark and my dog had left, so I climbed down the ladder and walked toward my open door. I stepped out into our huge dining room. There to my left was our beautiful china cabinet, and to this day I cannot recall why I looked inside, but what I saw has haunted me forever. There, standing behind my reflection, was a pale elderly woman staring back at me with the darkest eyes. Her curly hair was white, and she wore a simple blue dress with white polka dots. My eyes watered and my skin crawled. I woke up back in my bunk bed.

A couple of months prior to my family moving in, we had attended a funeral. That funeral, was for none other than my great grandmother. Oddly enough I find myself remembering what she looked like that day. There she lay in her open casket, her white hair curled up. Her skin cold and pale, donning a blue dress with white polka dots. Why did she look at me with those eyes.

I do, the only thing recently that got me good is Five Nights At Freddy's. But it's the stuff that happens to us that we never forget. I do hallucinate from time to time.

It was apparently a hallucination/dream, but I felt everything as if it were real.

Had you recently done something that you felt she would be ashamed of you for? That would explain the eyes. Otherwise be happy and not fearful that you got the chance to see her again.

Creepy, but it could be true. Whether it was a dream or a hallucination, you still did see it before her funeral.

whoa, now that's something to think about:
it could have just been your great-grandmother telling she's watching over
or even as @Shishiosa has said " did you do anything that may have been seen as dishonorable to her? "
cause that's where the dark eyes play a part in this in my opinion, but since
they didn't reoccur it could have just been a sign to tell you she's looking over you.

You still managed to witness your great grand mother? Wow. It's either she lived a long life or her children married and bore children of their own really young.

Well, in today's society, it's possible. 16 and pregnant.
