These Are Your Stories #23 – UFO Coincidence

Our  story comes from Marcella Cunningham. This is one of the strangest we have had and certainly stands out as original. I received this on the website and it appeared in episode #380 – Night Of Fright.

I have a best friend named Becky in middle school who I lost contact with when she transferred in the eighth grade. Two years later, I had a dream that I visited her new school and we sat at the back of her math class. In the dream her teacher was a tall, brunette with curly hair, and wearing glasses. 

The next day I got a message on Facebook from her, which was completely out of the blue because we hadn’t spoken in months. She writes to me how she is doing and that she is still having trouble with math. I have always been good at it so I helped her with math and she helped me with english. I thought it was odd! I wrote her back and told her about my dream. With-in seconds I get a reply. She freaks out and tells me that she sits at the back of her math class, and her teacher fits the description I gave her from my dream perfectly.

The next night I was out walking my dog around the neighborhood with a friend. We would occasionally look up to the sky in awe of the stars. I saw a fast moving light like a meteor, but slower, although much faster than an airplane. Then, it made an impossible ninety degree turn. First to the right, then to the left, and it disappeared. My friend and I both stopped, looked at each other and said at the same time “Did you see that?”

A woman’s voice from behind us spoke out, “I sure did, never seen anything like that before?”

We both turned and standing there was a young woman who was tall, brunette with curly hair, and wearing glasses. She introduced herself as Mary. We talked for quite a while about what we had seen. Through our discussion she mentioned that she was a teacher. I stopped mid-sentence and mentioned my old friend’s name. She was in fact my Becky’s math teacher.

Was all of this coincidence? Why the UFO and why strange connections? I renewed my friendship with Becky and we are better friends than ever. I am now a junior in highschool, and yes I still help her with Math and she still proofreads my english assignments.

Well that is an amazing story Marcella. That does seem like a lot of coincidence to me, but who really knows how the universe works.  Thank you for your story!

It’s Been Hot … Really Hot!

Hello! Well if you have been watching the news and weather reports you know that we have had an incredible event here in the Northwest. Normal temperatures in this part of the world for June are in the 70’s. Also, more than likely it will be cloudy and rainy. None of that has been the case. In fact we have had record breaking heat. Two straight days of 115 degrees. With the 90’s in our foreseeable future. One more thing, most northwesternians don’t have air conditioners. I suspect that will change now.

Why am I telling this? There was no way I was going to try to work during this time and came to the decision to take some time off. So having said that, this week I have picked an episode from Aug of 2019 to update and present. It is one of my favorites and I know you are going to love it. It features your stories and nothing else. It is titled These Are Your Stories II. I look forward to returning to normal stuff next week.

RAS #497 – The Yillian Way

On Ron’s Amazing Stories this time we focus on the Diplomat in the person of Jame Reteif. Who is he? He is the main character in our featured story. A classic science fiction adventure from the pages of the pulp magazine, Worlds Of If.  Also on the show, we’ll visit the Hotel Diplomat in the Philippines and we review an audiobook titled The Short, Strange Life of Herschel Grynszpan. Truly some amazing stories.

Featured Story – The Yillian Way

Our featured story this week comes from author Keith Laumer and the pages of Worlds of If – Science Fiction January of 1962. It is the introduction of Laumer’s recurring character Jame Reteif who is a low-level diplomat. The ceremonial protocol of the “Yill” was impressive, colorful—and, in the long run, deadly! It was up to Retief to figure out how to respond to their overtures in the correct manner; all the while keeping his superiors from making a deadly mistake. The story is titled The Yillian Way.

Other Stories Include – Carnival Caper, The Short, Strange Life of Herschel Grynszpan, The Diplomat Hotel, and The Yillian Way

These are Your Stories #22 – The Red Fairy

We have a story that is frightening! Omar Qadri is a faithful listener who has contributed to the show several times. He sends us this story as told to him by his mother. It comes from a time when she was still in the old country. 

Here is her story as told by Omar:

When my mother was a young girl, she and her sister were playing a game in the neighborhood park with a group of friends. The park, mother told me, was located near an ancient temple ruin that dates back thousands of years ago during the rule of the Hindu Kush. They controlled the Northern parts of India which is now Pakistan. It was late at night and the game they were playing was called “Red Fairy”. It is similar to hide and seek. In the game all the children hide and the caller would say, “The red fairy is looking for you.”

That night my mother’s sister was the caller, “The Red fairy is looking for you!” 

Suddenly, my mother heard a scream that could only have come from her older sister! All the kids scattered, out of fear, and ran to their nearby homes. My mother, of course, ran towards her sister! She caught up to her and then stopped dead in her tracks. She caught a glimpse of a woman dressed in red. The park’s dim lighting illuminated the creature’s clothing. 

When they got home my mom’s sister was hysterical. She kept repeating, “I saw the red Fairy!” She was crying and my grandmother asked her what happened. Breathing wildly she said, “I was counting down with my eyes closed and was saying: the red fairy is coming. When I opened my eyes a woman shrouded in red garments was standing directly in front of me! I screamed and ran!”. 

My mom said that her sister was sick for about two weeks after that and would not leave the house. From that day on they never played late in that park again. However, the story does not end there. My grandmother told them both, years later, about a young woman who was murdered in the woods near the ancient ruins. She was found wearing red garments that night. Hence the tale of the red fairy!
