The Swamp Road Chronicles


"Like a Kite"

Dear Editor,


WOW!!!!! I just had the most exciting thing that has ever happened to me in my entire life! I saw Swamp Road Sally!!! We were coming back from my brother's graduation rehearsal, driving up Swamp Road, when we saw her. It had to have been her. I have never seen a ghost before, but that is what we saw. Right in the middle of the road, dressed in white, just like people say. We came up behind her, it was raining real hard, I thought it was just some lady or girl walking in the rain for some reason. I never thought that it might be a ghost, but when we were pretty close to her, she looked over her shoulder at us and then she raised her arms straight up toward the sky and like a kite in a strong wind, she flew straight up into the air and out of our sight.

Exactly like a kite in a strong wind! What else could it have been except Swamp Road Sally? This is what everyone sees! I can't believe that I saw her too! I know I won't be able to sleep tonight! WOW.


I never imagined I would EVER see a ghost, and I thought I would be scared, if I did see one, but I'm really, really excited instead. I can't wait to tell my friends about this. I'm going to order a shirt that says, "I saw Swamp Road Sally", and wear it to school. You don't sell those, do you? Let me know if you do. You can use my real name too, if you want to; if you do use this email, I mean. Anyway, thanks!
