A Small Haunting

The first visitation happened one day when the girl was in her 14th year.

She had gone to her room  and was looking at herself in the mirror while she brushed her hair.

Gradually she became aware of an eerie clicking sound.

It was as if she was hearing a far away room full of people tapping away at manual typewriters.

The intensity of the clicking grew and, puzzled, she stopped what she was doing.

Suddenly the tail end of the comb which had been sitting on the dresser in front of her rose in the air until it stood erect at a 45 degree angle. 

The heavier end of the comb, the part with the teeth, still rested on the dresser.

Terrified, she dropped the brush and ran down to the kitchen to find the safety of her mother's presence. 

The girl was extremely innocent. 

It wasn't until many years after it happened that she realized the sexual nature of her first encounter with a poltergeist.

A true story.

Did things go further on the second encounter? Where will this all end?
