I Think I Was Possessed
by Cindy S
I was in 7th grade, and I still can't forget about it, and now I'm in 10th, this is also back when I lived in Duluth, MN. I was in my last class of the day with my friend. We were talking and I was standing beside her as she was sitting and drawing. Her finger was bleeding but we kept talking to each other as she kept drawing.
Then, she started complaining about bleeding on her paper, and how it was ruining her picture. I kept trying to comfort her, telling her it was going to be okay. Then, something strange happened.
I stopped talking and I felt completely blank. I couldn't feel myself standing, it felt as if I couldn't read my own thoughts. It was so weird. I was still aware of my surroundings, but I felt as if I couldn't move or do anything of my free will. It felt like my eyes were slightly wider, and I was still staring down at my friend. I couldn't even feel myself breathing. Then, I say to my friend, "You could paint it with your blood." in a twisted way, and then I stalled for a moment. I felt completely normal after that. Like I could control myself again.
I thought to myself, oh my god! And I covered my mouth, and I looked at my friend. She was still drawing. I was so relieved that she didn't hear me. Or whatever that was. I have no idea what came over me. I know this story's short, but this is all I remember. It was pretty freaky at the time.
