i have been interested in the paranormal for as long as i can remember even though it scares the crap out of me. if anyone reading remembers my name its because i have submitted 2 stories and i plan on submitting more later on. but this one is different because its not mine, its my friends' that had an experience and so did her husband. well here it is.
my friend, lets call her sara, used to live in hotels with her mother because that was part of her mothers' job. they lived in the menger hotel in downtown san antonio for a while and that is where my friend sara had her first experience. she said her mother would work sometimes til 3 or 4 in the morning(don't know what the hell kind of job that is, i need to ask) so sara would stay awake and explore the huge hotel. she said one morning really early she was wandering around when she came upon a tall spiral staircase that didn't look like the other staircases. she said there were walls around it instead of railings, you know like most spiral stairs have those steel railings or whatever. she went up the staircase and was bumping along the wall like a typical annoying little kid trying to make a lot of noise. she was about half way up when she bumped into the wall and fell in a hole. she said the paneling on the wall just moved right in and she was in a pitch black hallway thing that you couldn't see anything. but being the type of kid she was, of course she had a flashlight her mom gave her because she said most lights would be off since people were sleeping. so she took off down the hallway. she said there was absolutely nothing in the hallway at all, she walked for maybe 10 min and then came to a door or another panel because you could see light around it. she pushed it and it opened into the hotel's room where the guests' pool is. she walked in to find some staff cleaning the area and when they saw her they ran to her, shut the door and told her to not say a word about that hallway. they apparently knew who she was because they took her to the area where her mother was and kind of pushed her into the room and when my friend turned around they were gone. she ran and told her mom everythign of course and they went to investigate. when they got to where she fell in the wall there was no moving panel anywhere to be found. later she talked to hotel management and they said they knew nothing about any
of that. she even described the two staff members that escorted ehr to her mother and the management said they didn't have any staff that resembled her accounts. to this day she still doesn't know anything about the "disappearing hallway". and she also found out that the pool had been closed off and the doors chained for over 1 yr so the management don't know how she was able to get in the room and get out not to mention 2 more people doing that.
