I think I had an encounter which happened recently (early March 2020). I have no idea, what it was – fae or not – however, it was very strange, so I’d love to share.
It was a completely normal day, around 3 pm in the afternoon.
I was having a coffee chat with my sister (she’s 31, I’m 29) in our kitchen.
She was holding her 5 months old baby boy, while my 1 1/2 year old baby girl was sleeping in another room.
Suddenly, we heard a strange, short sound.
Later, we tried to describe it.
It was a sound of friction, the sound of heavy furniture moving on a carpet.
We immediately turned our head towards the sound – I turned right, she turned left, at the corridor door. Then we turned at each other:
“Did you… see that...?!”
It lasted just for a second, but it was long enough for us to later describe the exact same thing, at the exact same spot:
there was this little, about 50 cm tall, white, human shaped… something or someone, beside the half-opened door.
Our immediate instinct was to look behind the door (there was nothing), and to check on my baby, because she was sleeping in the room next to this door. She was sound asleep.
It felt very strange, eerie. Our hearts beat faster, but we weren’t afraid, just feeling this “what on earth happened?!” vibe.
We later discussed, if her baby boy started crying, we would have freaked out for sure, but his calmness made us feel at ease too.
Still, even without this actual fear, for 3 hours we constantly felt chills, and just thinking about it made our skin crawl. We never experienced anything like this before, and haven’t since.
One of the things that puzzled us the most was the fact that we couldn’t link this experience to anything.
We just chatted about everyday mom life stuff. Nothing special, we were relaxed.
It much rather felt like an ‘accidental’ meeting, an unintended lifting of the veil – to both of us. My Sister said:
