Screaming Banshee / Stock Photo

One evening as I was reading, I started to hear a faint wailing noise. I did not pay much attention to it until it got louder. I asked my son if he could hear anything but he said no. Thinking I had a headache I took some aspirin but I could still hear the wailing. The wailing was starting to disturb me so I went to bed.

In the middle of the night I woke up. The wailing was now so loud that it sounded like someone was screaming in my ear. I looked out the window and I could see a shadow of a woman screaming, but as I looked closer the screaming stopped, and the woman vanished. The next morning I got a call saying my grandmother had passed away. When I asked what time I was told that she started to fade in the evening and passed away at midnight.
