Still feels like yesterday. . ..I was 9 years old living in Wasilla, Alaska 1986. My mother had put us to bed, but I'm a night owl, and I have always loved the stars. I was watching out my bedroom window, watching a big orange star. Well, I thought it was a star. As it got closer, it was really hot, giving off a lot of heat like the sun. The next thing I remember, I was on a metal table....not strapped down, but I couldn't move a bit, as if I was being restrained. They surrounded the table. ...I was screaming and all of a sudden my voice wasn't coming out of my mouth, but it was inside head and so loud. ...I stopped! They had mouths, but they didn't use them to communicate, they were talking to me inside my head! They proceeded to poke and prod me, through my bellybutton and between my toes. They seemed to be trying to soothe me, by stroking my forehead like my mother did when I didn't feel good. I don't recall how I got back in my bed, but when I opened my eyes, I was drenched! As if I had jumped in a pool! I immediately ran to my mother's room and began to tell her what had happened. She was quite freaked out, but did believe me. We still talk about it from time to time, but we've always wondered. ....what happened! ? I was recently watching the History channel and I saw the episode of the Japan flight over Anchorage in 1986, I was frozen in shock! I looked at my husband and said, that's it! That's the ufo that took me!!!!!!!!
