Child Apparition Ghost Story

from Rick Peters

I am not normally one who believed in ghosts or that type of thing, but the past three years I have had three incidents where I could not explain what happened.

I was not under the influence of any drug or alcohol, nor was I under any particular unusual stress. The one (apparition sighting) I am most curious about happened while I was on vacation in Idaho. I was visiting at friend of mine and staying in her guest bedroom. About 3-4 a.m. (don't remember exactly). I was asleep on her futon bed in her guest bedroom with the door shut.

I was awakened as if someone had touched me. I opened my eyes and straight in front of me, about three feet away, was a little girl. She woke me, as if she needed me. She was maybe 3-4 feet tall, guessing her to be about 5 or 6 years old and wearing a plaid dress with shoulder-length hair.

"A little white" is the best way to describe her. I rubbed my eyes thinking, "This must be a dream." She was still there. So, I sat up in bed and looked over at her. She was still there and moved toward the door, trying to open it.

At this point I am freaking out a little and so I jumped up and out of bed. I was standing and looking at her.

The child was only about eight feet from me, still trying to turn the door knob. Still, I could see her even when out of bed. I realized she wanted out of the room, so I walked over (still seeing her the whole time) and reached for the door knob to let her out. As I reached for the door knob I accidentally hit her hands and she dissolved. Very bizzare!

I immediately went straight to my friends room and woke her up saying, "You won't believe what just happened." Naturally, she didn't believe me. However, I know what I saw.
