I love listening to my great-grandma's stories, so I didn't object when she started to tell me a story about one of her strange experiences over a glass of iced tea…
 
My Great-Great Grand-dad died in 1918 at the age of 48 when he fell off of a galloping1 horse. My Great Grandma was only 17 when this happened. The story goes that at the get together after the funeral, a strange man showed up. No one had seen him at the funeral, or anytime else for that matter. He stayed for a long time, hardly talking to anybody, and refusing to take off his coat and hat. When my Great-Great aunt pointed2 out to this man that, for the life of her, she could not recall who he was, he became absolutely livid and ran from the house. You can imagine how strange this seemed to everybody.
 
Curiosity got the best of Great grandma and she decided3 to follow this strange man outside to see where he had gone. She stepped outside and proceeded out into the middle of the yard, but she stopped short because the strangest sight met her eyes…the man was standing4 quietly on the roof of the barn, just about 5 yards away, illuminated5 only by the moonlight. She remembers that he had an unnatural6 gleam to his eyes, and when the clouds passed over the moon, and the night was pitch black, that gleam remained.
 
我喜欢听曾祖母讲故事。有一天喝茶的时候,她要给我讲一个她所经历过的奇怪事情,当然我是不会反对的。
 
曾祖母的父亲是在1918年去世的,那年他48岁,从一匹烈马上面摔了下来,当时曾祖母才仅仅17岁。故事发生在葬礼过后大家一起说话的时候。有个奇怪的男人出现了,没有人在葬礼上见过这个人,并且也没在别的什么时候看见过他。他出现以后呆了很长时间,没和任何人说话,也不愿意脱下外套。这时姨姥姥对他说,自己这些年从来没有见过他而且也不知道他是谁,他突然变得脸色铁青,随即跑了出去。你可以想象的到,人们对眼前的这一幕会是多么奇怪。
 
好奇心占据了曾祖母的内心,她决定去看个明白。于是她跟了出去来到院子中央,但是一看到眼前奇怪的情景…差不多五码以外的地方,那个人静静地站在粮仓的屋顶上,在月光的照耀下格外醒目。曾祖母记得刚才看见他的眼睛里有一道很不自然的亮光,随后乌云遮住了月亮,夜晚变得更黑,那道光就又出现了。
