|At the Crypt (M.A. Reilly, 2009)|
"What girl?" I ask.
"Don't you see her?" he asks, pausing. "She was right there," he adds pointing to where Jack is standing in the family room.
Neither of us have seen the girl. But here is where the story gets a bit strange. Departing or death-bed visions are not unusual. What I didn't know is that family members may also experience these visions.
Since Rob has returned home, I have seen a quickly moving, yet ill-defined woman cross my sight and disappear down the front hallway of my house several times. The vision happens very quickly, lasting no more than a second or two. At first I thought it was nothing more than eye fatigue. The last time though I had a strong sense of my mother that accompanied this flash of person. Each time it happens it occurs in the same spot. I am sitting in a chair next to Rob's bed in the family room when some ill defined movement compels me to look towards the front hall of the house. And in that quick glance, I think I see something, dressed in white, move out of sight down the hall.
Sometimes it is not with our eyes that we see.
