I woke up with a severe throbbing headache. The sun was shinning in my window as I tried to get myself out of bed. I had to definitely have my coffee in the morning so I made a quick cup of coffee. I went to the bathroom cabinet and reached for my antispasmodic medication for my Cerebral Palsy. I took a huge glass of water and swallowed them quickly. I went into the kitchen and sat down to read the daily news on my smart phone. As I began to read I heard a helicopter approaching from a distance. I got up off my chair and peeked through the blinds. The sound of the helicopter blades were getting louder and louder.
From a distance the helicopter looked like a very dark blue, but as it got closer I noticed it was black. So I thought to myself just another government helicopter. It flew over the house and I sat back down to read the daily news. I finished reading the news and decided to take a shower. As I started the water in the shower I could hear a faint noise of helicopter blades. I quick turned off the water and ran to the my bedroom window and peeked through my blinds on my window. It was another black helicopter, but this time I noticed it had tinted windows on it. Once again it flew over my house and was gone. I went back into the bathroom and started up the shower water again and took a quick shower. As I was getting out of the shower I heard a loud knock on the front door, so I quick got out of the shower and wrapped a towel around me and walked to the door and asked who was there. Nobody answered, so I asked again, but nobody answered again.
I slowly unlocked my door and slowly opened my door by a crack. There was a guy dressed all in black with a police helmet on his head with a tinted visor on the helmet so I couldn’t see his face. He asked me if I was Samantha Smith. At that point I was scared because he looked like he worked for either the police or the military. He then told me that I had to get dressed and I had to go with him. I quickly got dressed and did what he asked. As we were walking out of the front door the black helicopter with the tinted windows was approaching my house and began to land in my back yard. The guy with the police helmet told me to get into the helicopter. There was another guy and a girl around my age and I noticed that they also had Cerebral Palsy like me. I asked the guy and the girl if they knew where they were taking us, but they told me that they didn’t know and that the guy with the police helmet showed up at their house just like he did with me.
As we were flying the helicopter began to shake and then a huge like worm hole appeared and the helicopter was then sucked into the worm hole. We saw complete darkness for a few minutes. The darkness started to fade slowly and there was a bright light ahead. It appeared there was a futuristic city below us with flying cars passing by us as the helicopter was landing. The guy with the police helmet never took his helmet off, so we weren’t able to see his face. We landed next to a huge glass futuristic looking maze. It had walls but you could see right through the walls because it all looked like made out of glass material. The guy with the police helmet directed us into a building that was right next to the Maze. He told us to get inside the building and that we had to change into special clothing. The clothing I had to put on was all white and I also had to put a police type helmet on that was white. He told me the guy and the girl who were on the helicopter had to go in the maze first before me. So they went together inside the glass maze.
A huge glass door shut the entrance so they couldn’t get out. A big hologram clock appeared in the sky and a loud evil voice told them they had an hour to figure out the glass Maze and get out. I couldn’t see how far they got because very bright lights turned on in the maze as they started walking. As time slowly went on for me. I was wondering why the guy with the police helmet didn’t let me see his face, but as he was standing there with me he slowly lifted up the tinted visor on his helmet and I noticed he had black Alien like eyes. He looked at me with a very evil look. At that point after I saw his face, I didn’t know what was in store for me. An hour has passed and it was my turn to go into the maze. I was all sweaty and scared. The alien pushed me to the entrance of the maze and the hologram clock appeared and once again the loud evil voice told me......

It was January 12th, 2009 when I got the news that my dad shot himself with a gun. My daughter Mia was only four years old when her grandfather killed himself and I was in total shock when my stepmother called me on the phone to tell me he killed himself. I knew I had to get DNA from his body to prove that he was my father, before his body was cremated. My father always told me if anything ever happened to him and if he died that I should make sure to get a DNA test. My father denied me for nineteen years before he came into my life, so it was important to get the test done to prove to the rest of the family that he was indeed my father. My step mother Marie and I went to the nearest DNA center called Zeena DNA testing center. I told Zeena that I wanted a test done on my father and I. They came to the funeral parlor to take the DNA samples from my father’s hair, nails and they also took DNA from his mouth with a swab. I had to go to the laboratory to get my mouth swabbed. It cost me a total of a thousand dollars to get the test done for my father and I. Zeena asked me if I wanted to keep my father’s DNA for the next 15 years for medical purposes or if another person came forward saying that they may be my half sister or half brother. So I agreed with Zeena DNA testing center to keep my father’s DNA samples for the next fifteen years just in case something popped up.
Several years later in August 2024.
Mia was going off to college finally and I was so excited for her to go into architecture design as a major. She was going to be four hours away from her sister Bree, my husband Logan and I . It was her first year completely living on her own in a dormitory. The first week that she called me on the phone at college she was frantic. When I asked her what was wrong and why she wanted to come home so quickly and drop out of college, she told me that there was this guy in her math class at college that looked exactly like grandpa George. I basically said to Mia that surely it was just a guy that resembled grandpa George and that he was just a lookalike. She told me she wanted to come home from college because she was freaked out over this guy in her math class that looked like her grandfather. I told Mia that she could come home just for one weekend and then she would have to go back to college then after the weekend was over. I decided at the last minute that it would be better to fly there to pick Mia up then to drive the four hours to pick her up. Mia was always afraid to fly alone, so she always needs somebody to fly with her, when she has to fly. When Mia and I got on the airplane to fly back home from college, the plane was completely filled and there weren’t any empty seats on the plane. Mia and I had seats all the way in the back of the plane. I was peacefully looking out the window out at the airport when all of a sudden Mia started breathing heavily in a panic. I looked at her and said “Now what is wrong?” She said “look mom in the front row it is that guy in my math class that looks like grandpa George.” I reminded Mia that she was over reacting and that he was just a look alike of grandpa George in his early 20’s.
I promised Mia when we landed and got off the plane that we would all go to the mall and shop around now that I have a self driving car to get around. There weren’t many people that went to the mall anymore and people in general wanted to stay at home and shop online. The first place we went to in the mall was our favorite stuffed animal shop called Stuffoos. Even though I was forty six years old I still loved collecting stuffed animals. While we were in the mall I had the urge to go to the bathroom, so I told Mia and Bree to stay in Stuffoos while I went to the bathroom. As I was sitting on the toilet in the stall, I heard somebody else enter the bathroom. They coughed while they came closer to the stalls. It actually sounded like a man’s cough and for some odd reason it sounded like my dad’s cough. I could hear the man set his stuff down on the bathroom counter. I tried to look through the small crack of the stall door to see if I could see what the man looked like while I was sitting on the toilet. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I looked through the crack of the stall door, it was my father exactly how he looked when he passed away in 2009. I couldn’t believe it how could that be my father when he passed away in 2009? At that point my whole body was filled with severe anxiety and I was in a panic. I kept peeking through the stall door crack and saw him starring at himself in the bathroom mirror, the next thing I noticed is that his both his eyes turned coal black like an alien’s eyes. I was panicking at that point so I decided to stay in the stall until he left. As soon as he got out of the bathroom I ran back to Stuffoos to get Mia and Bree. We got into my self driving car and went home quickly to my husband Logan.
I tried to explain everything to Logan about what happened at the mall, but he just looked at me and laughed and said “Yeah right like your dead father was at the mall with black alien eyes.” He said “You know me I don’t believe in aliens or ghosts Melissa.” That night Mia and Bree didn’t want to sleep in their own bedrooms that night alone, but I told them that they had too. I made sure that all the doors and windows were locked throughout the house and I made sure that the security system was on. As I was falling asleep next to my husband Logan. I was laying in my bed in my bedroom about to go to sleep and I drifted off into a light sleep half awake and half asleep. I was awake but I couldn’t seem to move my body like sort of what happens in sleep paralysis and a very bright strange icosahedron three dimensional object came very close to my face and it was hovering over my face and body. The energy it was leaving off felt dark and evil. I was trying to yell for help but nothing came out of my mouth. The very bright light from the icosahedron object was blinding my eyes because it was so bright. I wasn’t sure what this thing was while I was laying there, but in my mind I was thinking it was a ghost, demon or the devil. I then was able to break out of the sleep paralysis in my dream then my dream oddly switched to me getting photos taken by strangers for something important. I then woke up from my dream and felt very confused about what I dreamed about. The next morning I needed to clear my mind from that horrible dream, so I decided to ask Mia and Bree if they would like to go for a nice short walk with me around the neighborhood block. We walked about two blocks when we saw the UFOS in the distance in the sky. I told Mia and Bree that we better run as fast as we can before the UFOS caught up to us. So we started running back to the house, but one of the UFOS quickly caught up with us and beamed us up in the UFO with a bright light. We were in a room that looked very similar to a movie theater, yet there weren't any seats in the movie theater and everyone was sitting on the floor including me. Everyone in the room were strangers besides Mia and Bree and there was a man on the movie screen wearing a silver cape with a silver veil on his face, so I couldn't see his face, yet while he was conversing with everybody around me appeared as though they were in a trance, his voice was extremely frightening while he was talking then there were two people pouring some sort fluid on the peoples' heads, and they poured the same liquid on Mia and Bree’s head too. I got off the floor and began crying and saying No! I have faith in God and starting running out the door. I ran down a long narrow silvery looking hallway and found a futuristic looking elevator at the end of the hallway. I pushed the number 3 button on the elevator. The elevator stopped on the second floor and a normal looking man got on the elevator. He took a look at me and said "Melissa you know who I am and I need you to accompany me." I obviously knew who he was despite the fact that he was a normal looking man. I know he was camouflaging himself as a normal man, however he was Satan. I took a look at him and began shouting "No!" I quick got off at the third floor and came to a crystal clear in ground swimming pool with large amounts of people inside the swimming pool. The man with the silver cape was there standing at the edge of the swimming pool with his veil still over his face. His voice was systematic and demonic sounding. He turned towards me slowly and took the veil off his face to reveal himself to me. It was my father, the alien father. His eyes turned coal black like they did in front of the bathroom mirror at the mall. He said to me “Melissa come join your father.” I looked at him and screamed no. He then said “ If you resist me you must die with the others.” He then pushed me in the swimming pool and then these small metal silver round balls came out of the ceiling and then started swooping down at the strangers in the swimming pool at at me. The metal silver balls had very sharp blades on them and they were swooping down and killing everybody. I quickly got out of the pool as fast as I could and ran out the door into a very dark and dim and narrow hallway. I heard a subway coming near in the distance. As it stopped I got on it and stayed on it until it came to the next stop. I got off it once it stopped and I noticed I was in what appeared to be my old high school building except that it had a huge roller coaster in the middle of the school building along with two swimming pools that looked very filthy. As I was standing there watching the indoor roller coaster going around a man with long white hair was standing in front of me smoking a cigarette as he slowly turned around and starred at me I noticed the pupils of his eyes were slits, his pupils weren’t round and they reminded me of a demon or the devil’s eyes. He looked at me and said in a very evil and demonic voice “Melissa you must come with your father.” Stop resisting me.”........
