  1. I went into a cell where a man was held for six months as a traitor, and I felt something horrifying there-about a week ago. I left the cell and scampered away, but that evening, I got so sick, I slept for 15 hours. I could not eat the next day. I had to call a doctor and my antibiotic had an uphill battle. There is something in that block, and it needs to be closed. The very next morning I “saw” a soldier laying in the air it appeared. He pulled his head up and looked at me, and laughed, then rolled away! He appeared to be 19-20 years old with black, hair parted longish on the side, and it seemed like he was so confident/ He vanished in the air.He looked me aquare in the eye, but HE had a greenish confederate hat on. I was scared enough to see a priest about it.
