Blood-Curdling Scream

I was home sick in bed one day when I was 10 years old. I had been vomiting and had a fever. Mama was in the kitchen washing dishes and I was trying to yell for her because I had a big headache and felt as if I were dying for a drink of water. No matter how hard I tried, nothing would come out when I tried to speak.

I caught a glimpse of something over by the bedroom window and turned my head to take a look. The curtains were white with red polka dots. The dots started going round in circles making one big circle. Right in the middle if it all a transparent person dressed in white surrounded by light was entering my room via the circle. I tried and tried to yell for Mama to help me but nothing would come out of my mouth.

Finally I broke my silence and let out a blood-curdling scream. Mama came running in to see what the matter was. I told her what I had seen and she assured me that no one was there. She took my temperature and it was up to 105. She rushed me to the Doctors office. I haven't thought much about this incident since that day but I believe that there was an Angel there that made me scream so my Mama would notice that my fever was up so high.
