(Bloomington, Indiana, USA)
On the night of my 10th birthday party, I had a sleepover. All of my friends and I slept in my living room, just before I went to sleep I saw a girl in a long white night gown, she had black hair all the way down to her elbows, and it covered her face. Then I blinked, and she was gone. I know what you're thinking, that's it? She saw someone who looked like the grudge? Well, its not it, at the time I thought very little about it, but after that, I became obsessed with ghosts, some years later, I was sitting with my mother and I asked her, "Do you believe in ghosts?" she said, "I ought to, i've seen one before." Excited and now curious, I asked about it, and she told me, "It was around your 10th birthday party, you remember? The night you had the sleepover?" "Yeah what about it?" I asked. "Well that night your stepdad and I were going to bed and this apparition appeared..." "What did it look like?" "It was female she had long black hair down to her elbows, she was in a white night gown. She floated above our bed and laughed malevolently at me. Ehen she was gone, I asked your stepdad if he'd seen and heard it too, he said he most certainly saw her, but he didn't hear her."
