Did I see a ghost?
Next we had a nice dinner and a few drinks and then walked back to the hotel for the night. We may or may not have had more drinks at the hotel, but that’s neither here nor there…my slight drunkenness in no way impacts this story. I swear. Around 3:30am, long after we had passed out went to bed, I got up to pee. I closed the bathroom door, but didn’t want to put the light on because the shock would probably have burned my eyes. Besides, I pee in the dark all the time. It’s my curse for always drinking too much wine water before bed. So, there I was, sitting in the dark, half drunk and peeing, when in front of me a white light flashed, almost like some one was taking a picture. I froze. I stopped peeing. What the hell was that? Then a few seconds later, it happened again, only this time twice in a row. FLASH FLASH. That was enough for me. I pulled up my pants and ran out of the bathroom and woke up Ben. He said the flash was just the light from the hotel’s hairdryer that was plugged into the wall. Unconvinced, but tired as hell, I went back to sleep.
The next morning, Ben told me he had hardly slept at all because he felt like someone was watching him all night. Well, that’s a bit creepy, I thought. That’s when I remembered the flashes of white light in the bathroom. I went in, this time with the lights on, to investigate. There is NO WAY the light from the hairdryer was the light that I saw. First of all, the hairdryer was behind the toilet, and the flash I saw was right in front of me, facing the opposite direction. And secondly, the light on the hairdryer was orange, not white. That did it for me. I was, at that point, thoroughly creeped out to the max and soooo happy we weren’t staying another night. I still don’t know if anything supernatural really occurred, but I’m going to tell myself that it did. You be the judge.
