Michele was four years old when she remembers seeing the face that frightened her. Her parents thought she was having nightmares. Michele remembers a face with big eyes that would frighten her so much that she couldn't move. She would wake up to find herself in her bedroom, surrounded by something that felt like an invisible solid wall, at which point she would become hysterical.
When her parents came to her she was unable to explain what had happened and could only tell them about the face. Naturally, they thought it was a bad dream.
When she was a little older she began playing doctor, with various kitchen utensils, pretending they were surgical instruments. Her playmates were often made to undress and play check up. This abruptly ended when her parents learned of this odd behavior and suspected that she might have been molested by someone in the neighborhood. They couldn't imagine how their eight year old could have been exposed to this behavior.
Michele once was missing and returned home late from high school. Her friends told her parents that she would sometimes insist on walking home alone through a remote wooded area. This caused concern that she had had an accident or met with foul play. She eventually returned in a dazed and confused state leading her parents to think that she might have been experimenting with drugs. They took her to a doctor but there was no evidence of any medication in her system. Instead, the physician found raised, reddish, triangular patches on both arms. Michele was unable to explain how she got these marks.
In her senior year of high school, Michele remembers that one of her friends became pregnant and left school to care for her infant at home. When Michele first saw the baby she became hysterical, so much so that her mother had to come and get her. It was then that she started remembering things.
Michele remembers feeling that she, too, had a baby. This was foolish, of course, since she had not even dated a boy. But she began to believe this more and more. A year earlier she had suddenly stopped having her period and thought nothing of it. Several months later she recalled having a bloody discharge that initially scared her, but she kept it to herself. Later her regular period returned. It made no sense to her, but the idea of having had a baby persisted.
She began to see mental vignettes which she described as like scenes from a movie trailer, where she was being shown an infant which was then taken away from her. The emotion she felt when recalling these memories was so strong she would start to cry. Eventually she became obsessed with the memories and confided in her parents. They then sought psychiatric help for her.
Under hypnosis, her therapist sought to revive the truth of what happened to her in her younger years. It is common for girls to repress things like a rape or sexual abuse. But when she began to recall the ongoing events in her life it was obvious that something more extraordinary was happening.
There was a small person I call the face because his face used to scare me. He had big eyes and was really skinny. But he talked to me, I mean he could send me thoughts, and he would tell me that I would be ok and that I was special. There were other small people who would do things to me but always the face would be with me and tell me that no one was going to hurt me. They would put me on some kind of bed or table and then they would touch me with instruments like in an operation. I don't remember getting hurt but I was afraid. Some times I would be in a small room and I would see the face, and I would suddenly know what was going to happen, like I had done that before. I think it has happened many times.
When she was asked to recall her memories about the baby, Michele got very emotional.
One time the face took me to a different place. It was much bigger than the room with the bed. It was like a waiting room with chairs. Then another small person came into the room, she looked more like a person, but had different eyes, and she held a small baby girl and showed it to me. It was a beautiful baby girl. I asked if I could hold her and the person with the baby looked, as if to ask permission from the face, and the answer was no. But they held her close to me so I could touch her and she grabbed one of my fingers. She looked like she was sick or something. Then the being took her away.
I remember I started to cry when they took her away but the face told me that I would see her again. I kind of knew it was my baby but I didn't remember ever having a baby. It was confusing. The face said that I would understand some day.
He once made me look at his face, which was horrible. When I looked at his big eyes it was like watching television. I had a movie inside my head and the earth was on fire and lots of people were dead. I didn't understand why he made me see such sad things.
Michele is now in her mid 30s, married and has children of her own. Her youngest daughter, now 7 years old, knows nothing about Michele's past and yet has started to exhibit similar behavior, suggesting that she is also being abducted. Abduction experts say that it is common for aliens to be interested in specific genetic lines.
Michele is at an impasse now, not knowing whether to discuss such things with her young daughter for fear of traumatizing her. Michele also believes that her own abductions are continuing. She often finds herself waking up in different rooms of her home, or outside, with no memory of having intentionally walked there.
