One night a couple weeks ago, when my window was open because it was cool, I was just getting ready to get into bed when I heard a strange sound. I stopped moving so that I could hear it better. It sounded like what I thought it was: a flute. I was dumbfounded. It wasn't just a flute, but it sounded mysterious, almost like you would expect Merlin to play in order to lure Arthur out of the monastery at night as a boy so they could go on adventures and teach him lessons. This is what Merlyn did in the book The 21 Lessons of Merlyn. To make it even stranger, I could tell it was moving around, because as I crept closer to the open window as I hid behind the blinds, it sounded farther away. I was just thinking to myself, "wow, am I really hearing this?!" I've never heard anything like this before. I was cautious, because I had no idea what it could be, but still, I wanted to go out and check it out. It didn't feel scary, but I'm a careful person. I think about worst-case scenarios, like stepping outside on the front steps, only to have my soul sucked away by whatever or whoever it was. Well, eventually, I did give in to my curiosity, and I opened the front door a wee bit, and peeked out - and listened. I didn't hear it anymore at this point. I waited there, looking out into the dark neighborhood, trying to see if I could catch anything moving, but I didn't. Finally, when I felt that the threat level was low, I stepped out onto the front step. I was prepared to scurry back inside in a split second if I had to, but as I sat there, I happened to look right at a window of a neighbor's house across the street. There was a mysterious white streak of light that went one way, then quickly turned around and went back the other way and vanished. I also remember slightly smelling apples when I was listening by the window before I went out. I had been melting some scented wax that evening, but not apple. I have no clue what the heck that was all about. I hadn't told anyone about this, because of how crazy it is. What do you guys think? I don't expect anyone to believe me. Edit: Oh, and I don't know how relevant this is, but it happened around the time of the full moon.
