My generation has forgotten paranormal experiences. Until recently, hunting ghosts or phantoms was deemed pretty cool. Plenty of people I know have had these experiences. They just don't share them because nobody talks about these poltergeists anymore.
I’ve had my fair share of hauntings, especially in the countryside. People are quick to be skeptical about my experiences because lately scientists have been “debunking” these experiences. Many studies have been made about people that report ghost sightings, and scientists have attempted to debunk their stories. They typically blame these sightings on head trauma or religious trauma.
I’ve had neither.
My aunt’s farm is a fun place, during the day at least. Birds sing, the bees buzz, the flowers dance, and the snowy mountains are beautiful. The fields stretch to the little hills near the mountains, only separated by a dirt road. Everything about the environment makes you think nothing sinister goes there. And that’s the truth: nothing sinister does goes on there. Unless you’re vegan, of course. It is a farm after all.
At night, though, it’s too dark. You can’t see the mountains. You can only go a certain distance until you reach the void of darkness. You can only hear your footsteps on the dirt. It’s eerie because you don’t know what’s in front of you. A mountain lion could be in front of you ready to pounce and you’d have no idea.
