Saturday Shivers by Eleni of La Femme Readers

Have you ever had a paranormal experience? We asked this question of several bloggers and readers. And we've gotten some haunting answers, so we'll be featuring them on Saturdays. Today we'll be hearing from Eleni of La Femme Readers. Here's her brush with the paranormal:

Do I believe in ghosts? Yes. Do I think supernatural entities are around us? Yes. Did I actually think I'd hear a creepy story about my fiance? Not in a million years. About five years ago, he went on vacation to his country, Indonesia. A country full of beauty and unique aspects. Ever heard of black magic? Well, I never knew it existed till now. My fiance has been known to have two sides: temperamental and sensitive. Why does he have split personalities? Well, in his country, the theory is that a twin lives inside him. Yes, you heard correctly, a twin. He stuffs his face with food everyday, yet doesn't gain weight. Fast metabolism? Or is it something out of this world that gains the calories for him? At first, he didn't believe in this hoopla. But, one day he was hanging outside, enjoying the sunny day, when something, or should I say someone was staring at him. He creeped closer and saw his own self, just staring at him. Was this possible? He saw the "twin" that lived within himself? In a split second of looking away, his twin disappeared. Was he being delusional? Or was it his surroundings of magic that caused him to see his other self? We'll never really know. All I understand is supernatural occurrences do exist, and hopefully I never run into his "twin."

Whoa, Eleni, you'd better be very, very careful on your wedding day that you're not marrying his twin. This gave us shivers. Feel free to leave comments for Eleni. Anyone else want to chime in with a strange tale of the supernatural? Send your stories to our blog tour coordinator, Lexie North.
