Margaret O's Experience

Experience description:   

I was at home with my little boy age 5 my husband was at work he worked nights, I took my son to bed at 8.30 then watched a little t v ,then at around 11.00 I retired to bed myself, I was woken by a lifting feeling I opened my eyes and saw 2 monk like figures at the bottom of my bed, I remember being afraid and they pointed to my bedroom window asking for me to go with them, I remember saying I couldn't go I couldn't leave my son on his own, but they kept saying don't be afraid he will be ok ,I then remember floating towards them under protest, I tried to grab the bed ,that's when I noticed I was still lying there, they took me towards the window, at such speed I remember cringing waiting for the glass to break, but we just floated through it ,I was floating in the air still very scared asking to go back to my son. they just kept saying, remember this place we take you to ,when we arrived there it was a small bridge, they pointed over and there on the edge near a brook was a baby wrapped in a blanket, they said remember ,I replied I will but please take me home.

as we floated back everywhere was just the same the houses the shops even people coming home from the pubs ,as we approached my house I woke up in my bed I was petrified went in my sons room he was fine fast asleep, I climbed in beside him to scared to go in my own bed. my husband returned from work I told him all about what happened he said it was just a bad dream. 9 years later we decided to move house we still had one son we didn't want anymore so now was the right time. we fond a house we loved and moved in at the back of the house was waste land 2 years after moving there they built a small housing development on the waste land when they cleared the waste land we found we had a brook at the bottom of our garden, when they tided it up I recognized the place from my experience.
