Seeing ghosts

First I want to tell you about myself. I've been seeing ghosts since I was a little boy. I am not the type of person who thinks every noise or every shadow that I see is paranormal. This is the first time that I'm going to tell my story. I never told my experiences to anyone because I was afraid that people would think that I was strange or a liar. I speak Spanish so please forgive me for the mistakes in my writing. So here is my story:

This story was in 1970, I was 11 years old. Sometime when I used to go to the store was a girl that was so cute that I got a crush on her. I didn't know where she lived. One night I went to my best friend's house and we were on the front porch talking and to my surprise that girl was in the living room, so I asked my friend about her and he said she was his sister's best friend and they were going to school tonight to see a movie about child birth.

I told him about my crush and asked if we could walk them to school so I can get to know her. So we did and we talked for a little bit. We arrived at school and the girl and my friend's sister went inside the home room to watch the movie.

Five minutes later this girl came out and said that she can not see the movie because she don't have her parents signature. So to make a long story short she and I were walking around school talking. We end up on the back of the school next to the fence, on the ground was an old tree. Behind the fence the ground goes down about five feet and after that, is an open field with trees and very tall grass.

We sat on the old tree with our back touching the fence. We were talking and around 10 minutes later she gets the chills. She looks to her left and right and then she kept talking. A couple of minutes later I was talking and she gets the chills so she looks to her left and right again and then she keeps listening to me. I did not ask her what's wrong because I didn't want her to feel uncomfortable. So I kept talking and a couple minutes later she gets the chills but at the same time I get the chills too. Again she looks left and right and then she continued looking at me but then she looked behind her. What she saw she got her so scared that she wanted to scream but she couldn't. Her eyes were wide open and her mouth too but no sound.

Next she takes me by my arm and puts her face on my shoulder. I looked back and I saw a woman coming to us. She was floating on top of the grass. When I saw her I got up so quick that I became loose from the girl. I looked at this woman and her face looked like she was very angry and very hateful. She was wearing a very old fashion dress. The color of the dress was purple and blue. The material of the dress was like silk but of a very heavy material.

I kept looking at that woman and she kept getting closer to us. I don't know if she was looking at the girl, at me or the two of us. The expression on her face was so hateful that until this day I never forgot. So I was looking at this woman and then I looked at the girl and she was paralyzed with fear looking at me. I looked back to the woman and she was getting closer and closer. At the same time I was feeling chills on my back and I felt that my stomach was burning.

I believe that we had a guardian angel watching over us because with out hesitation or thinking I grabbed the girl's arm and pulled her up and ran away. We did not stop running until we reach the parking lot. When we stopped at the parking lot the girl started crying. My friend showed up and asked me what happened and because there was other people around I told him that she's not feeling well and she probably is getting the flu.

I took the girl home and to my surprise her mom knows my mom very well. I told her mom that she is not feeling very well. I didn't say what really happened. Her mom put her hand on her forehead and said that she was very cold. So I went home.

Two days later I stopped at her house to see how she was doing and she said she was feeling better. I didn't mention anything of what happened at school so after a couple of minutes later she said to me "Tony, did you really see that woman that was coming to us?" Because I didn't say anything about a man or woman I know that we did see the same thing.

I don't know if any of you had the same experience that I did and if you did I would like to know about it. After that experience, this girl and I lost contact with each other because her family moved and then my family moved. If she reads this story she will know and maybe she can get in touch with me. This is one of many other experiences I have had with ghost. In many of my experiences with ghosts I was lucky to have somebody with me so I know it was not in my mind.
