This thread is probably gonna get some flack and I have considered that but feel this is the right forum to first post this. I hope no-one is gonna copy and paste it on another forum.
It started a long time ago. I was 1972 and I was 9 years old. It was a sunny morning with everything normal. The birds were singing, there was the smell of freshly mown lawns in the air. I was wishing I did not have to go to school on such a wonderful day. Little did I know I would not make it to school that day.
At 7:30 AM i got my bicycle out and started my ride to school, a ride that would normally take 10 - 15 minutes. I had the choice of 2 routes I could take to school. 1 was on the usual roads that were always chok a block with traffic or another that took me through a small woodland. Being such a nice morning, I chose the route through the small woodland. As I entered the woodland I felt a weird feeling like I was being watched or something. I was at the time somewhat unnerved by this feeling but shrugged it off with a "what the hell". You have to realise that this was 1972 and the world was a lot safer for a kid back then, so no thoughts of pervs or anything.
So I entered the woodland brushing off the strange feeling. After a few minutes of riding I noticed a very bright area of the woodland. It seemed to be too bright for it just to be the sun breaking through the trees above. I guess I got the curiosity bug and rode in the direction of the bright area. On nearing this area the brightness became so bright that everything just seemed white! I suddenly felt myself raising of my bicycle and soaring upward not at a great speed or anything.
I seemed to emerge through this brightness and into a sort of bubble, where everything around me was bright but not within the bubble. Sorry it is difficult to explain this. The only way I can describe it is..........Imagine being in an area where there are very powerful lights all around you pointing away from you. But those lights are so powerful as to blind you from seeing what is outside your area but allowing you to see what is inside the area. I hope this has not lost you all now.
So in this area I am like floating in a kind of space. I was strangely calm, no fear or anything, just a kind of wonder to what was happening. I continued in this state for some time, how long I can not guess but it did not seem long. Then the brightness stopped. I found myself sitting on some kind of floor that was soft to touch, like foam or something. It was some kind of room. There was a door. My first thought was to open the door and see where I was and what was happening. Exactly as I thought this though the door opened and a young lady entered carrying a cup that looked like it was gold. She offered it to me and requested in English with no accent to drink. I thought, Yeah right I'm gonna drink something offered me without knowing what it is. As i thought this she said, it is only water. Somehow I trusted her so I took a sip. It was water but not waht you would call water. It was very pure tasting and even smooth!
I drank a little and returned the cup. The lady told me to wait a little longer then some people would visit me. She then left the room. I was feeling even more curios as to what was happening by now and decided to open the door and see what it was all about. As i decided this the door opened once again and the same lady entered this time with 2 other ladies and 1 man. All were young and healthy looking. I say healthy because they looked almost more alive and healthy than anyone else I had ever seen.
I was then asked about where I lived, what my family was like. What we had in our house, how did we live, what we ate, how we cooked. I was asked so many things that I hadn't even really thought about before but juts taken for granted. It was all so strange.
This questioning went on for a couple of hours where some things i answered would be talked about with me for more information. After this couple of hours another person entered the room and said, we are here. They all then left the room asking me to follow. Not demanding or anything just asking. I followed and as we left the room we entered another area. I need to point out here that we did not leave that room and enter another room in the sense you are thinking. It was like, well, we stepped through the door and were instantly teleported into another area, not that we walked into another area. When I was in the original room and asked to follow, all I could see through the door was a bright whiteness, nothing more.
So now I am in this other area. What I see is many people all looking the same young and healthy looking. No one looked older than 20. Around me there was was what I can only describe as large black glass looking panels. Every now and then someone would place a hand on one or another of these panels. Nothing seemed to change when the did that. After a few minutes (it almost seemed they were waiting for me to take this in before they continued (almost like being patient for me to be ready for the next thing)) they returned to the door asking me to follow. I did. This time we arrived in a very beautiful meadow. There were flowers of colours i can not even try to explain here. There were people laughing and playing, all that same young healthiness.
The sky above was clear, it was blue but different to the most pure blue sky on a summers day. There was a lake and a river in the distance. There was 3 suns but not like we se our sun. These 3 suns you could look at without hurting your eyes. It was warm in a very comforting sort of way. There were also many other planets in the sky. I do not remember how many but at least 10. I saw many flying machines going in different directions towards these planets. But there was no noise fro them. I looked around me and wondered at what i was looking at. There was only the 1 door that seemed to be belonging to some sort of small hut. I looked at the people that had led me here with questioning eyes. They smile a warm comforting smile. The lady that I first met now spoke to me. She told me that I was a long way from where I came but would return there soon. She pointed to one of the planets above, a planet that looked huge and a beautiful blue colour and told me that was their world. She told me that one day I would visit that planet but not now. She told me all the other planets above were part of their system and that they visited them on many occasions. I started to think that maybe I had had an accident and had died. As I thought this another of the people a man told me that no, I had not died. I was a guest of "Alexion". As I thought what or who was "Alexion", the same man answered me saying, "Alexion" is where you will come to in the future, but that is not for now!? Live your life free from slavery as much as you can and you will join us here.
At this point I found myself in a Hospital. A nurse cam and asked me how I felt, the same young healthiness. I replied that I did not know why I was being asked that question. The nurse asked me if i remembered what had happened to me. I guess I looked confused because she went on, you were found in "Bray woods" asleep. Someone tried to wake you and see if you were all right but you would not wake up. So they went and made a phone call for an ambulance. You are in the hospital.
I tried to explain what had happened but was just given the look of "you are not well" and was told that my parents were on the way.
When my parents arrived I told them what had happened and they looked very concerned, my dad was talking in whispers with a doctor. I was told I would need to stay in the hospital a couple of days as they wanted to monitor me.
During those couple of days various tests were done on me. The thing that interested the doctors most was that I had a red burn mark down my left side, starting from my cheek to my hip. A large wide red thick straight line. On examination it was confirmed to be caused by radiation!!
Some time during the day of this radiation being confirmed 2 police (no uniforms) came and interviewed me. They were especially interested in my account of the events that had taken place. After what seemed like hours they finally sid there goodbyes and look after yourself and left.
Remember I was 9 and so the radiation comment did not mean anything to me at the time. I did not find out what radiation meant for a couple of months.
I told my account of what happened to many people, but they only ridiculed me for it. I was the subject of many bullys for many years as a result of my account.
I have not repeated this account for many, many years.
I hope that I will not be ridiculed now for it. I have told you the truth about what happened to me. I have exaggerated nothing in my telling of this. There is probably some more for which I have forgotten, it was after all a long time ago.
I wonder if that bloody duck is gonna duck me on this one?
The reason I have posted this. I have been a member of this forum only a short time but I have found it to be a forum that is not full of hate and racism. I have seen the way people here have supported US in her time of need. I have seen the way people ha ve been welcomed into this forum like a family. I myself have felt like I am part of the Kritter family. This has given me the confidence to once again relate my account of that summers day in 1972.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
OK let the laughter begin............
