Sea Of Voices In The Night
I had just gotten home from a friend’s house and was in my bed and cuddled up ready to go to sleep in a flash. I was extra tired that night for whatever reason, but that’s beside the point.
I was laying in me bed, the television off, drifting into sleep but still very much awake and aware of what was going on around me.
Suddenly, I began hearing faint but very clear whispers in my right ear (the left side was laying on the pillow). The whispers got louder and louder, and grew into straight up voices. And it wasn’t of one person, but of many, many people.
You know when you’re sitting in a crowded movie theatre, just before the movie starts and everyone in the theatre is talking and it’s just a loud jumbled sea of voices… That’s what it was like.
They got louder and louder as if they were coming from the television, which was off of course. Finally, I swiftly jumped up off of my pillow and the voices abruptly stopped and the silence was so thick I could slice it with a knife.
I brushed it off and laid my head back down on the pillow. Within a minute or two, the voices started again with low whispers and grew into a loud clatter of voices in seconds.
Again, I jumped up off of my pillow and the voices fell completely silent in the snap of a finger. I couldn’t make out a single word that was being said, it was just a sea of jumbled voices.
Again, I lay back down on my pillow but this time the voices didn’t return. I drifted off into sleep and the next morning was puzzled at what had happened.
