Me and my brother are two highly educated professionals and often regarded highly in the scientific community. As logical individuals we are not expected to talk about or believe in the supernatural. But this particular incident in our childhood still intrigues both of us. When I was about twelve my younger brother and I were handed over an old video game console of my cousin. We both were allowed to play only for half an hour on it, either individually or as a team. I distinctly remember, this once we brothers were having a big fight over the matter that which one of us will go first and how much time we both will play. Our mother's voice came from the kitchen asking us to stop fighting or else she would kick us both out of the house. She sounded strange, we thought it was because she was angry. So finally we came to a compromise that both of us will play at the same time against each other. That day the we had just returned from the school and right away started playing. We were so preoccupied with the game that we didn't even care to look for mom. We just knew she was there and even saw her moving around. After a couple of minutes we heard a knock at the door. We thought Mom would get it and kept on playing. Both of us asked mom to get there door since we were playing, but she refused to go and asked one of us to go and get it. So finally I went and grabbed the door. Now, it gives me chills to even think about it today after almost a decade later. I was startled to see my mom and dad outside the door. I almost fainted. My brother was equally shocked. Mom told us that she was gone to pick up Dad from the airport about an hour ago. We told them what happened, they looked around only to find my mom's new dress torn up. The dress that I thought she was wearing. There wasn't any sign of break-in, so obviously our parents thought we were making up the whole story to cover up our shenanigans. But we know what we heard and that was real. Even today both of us couldn't know who was in there that day.
