I stood still, then went outside my room and saw that their room was dark. I thought again, mom couldn't have switch off the lights at 3.30am. No, that could not have been her. She goes to sleep before 12! Right that instant, I went back to bed. Switch off the lights in case 'mom' comes in to turn it off. I tried dozing off but couldn't because of that little incident there. As usual I recited some Surah and closed my eyes but I kept opening my eyelids looking at the corner of the room wondering if 'mom' was there. All I know, I woke up to a sunny morning.
I asked mom later today, if she came in my room that night. She answered yes, it was her. It was hard to believe. Really it was. I still don't believe her. Maybe she was covering the 'mom' up so I would not freak out. Still. Thankfully, even if it wasn't her, I'm glad it turned out to be 'her' not some other form. You know how that is like.
