A young girl's description of an imaginary friend that visits her at night has recently gone viral online.
The three-year-old, whose name is Ruby, described her unusual visitor for an article which featured several examples of imaginary friends as well as children's drawings of them.

The page was shared on Twitter by Parks and Recreation actress Natalie Morales.

In the article, the girl described her 'imaginary mum' who she had named 'Grateful'.

"Her yellow eyelashes mean she can see in the dark - she only comes to see me at night-time," she wrote. "It scares me sometimes, but I always want her to come back. She has two babies in her belly."

"She's 14, but can never have a birthday."

This unusual description has led some people to suggest that the girl is being visited by a ghost.

"This is straight up terrifying," Morales wrote.

It's a still developing brain. Not spook vision.

It isn't anything paranormal nor occult. It's simply a healthy child with a healthy mind.

No.....not that strange.  Tinnitus is a real problem that affects about 1 in 5 people.  I have had a touch of it.....and have also experienced being sensitive to sounds when stressed.

Call the Winchesters.  I thought they got rid of the yellow-eyed demon.

Had I been in your position, I would have asked some more searching questions, like his name, his parents' names etc. Should anything like that happen again, I would suggest you do exactly that.

The name is the giveaway, she’s hopeless with inventing names, at the time her list of stock names was limited to ballerina, cici, Scarlett or Charlie, the last 2 being friends.  The imaginary brother defaulted to Charlie. Of course we asked questions not everything is supernatural.

What makes you think they're inventions? Nobody's saying there's anything supernatural going on, quite the opposite in fact.

My daughter had two imaginary friends. They were elf sized little heathens that she could carry in her pockets. They were named Brother and Ponch and went everywhere with us. This allowed my daughter to somewhat release her less...civilized desires in a way that didn't get her in trouble. Brother and Ponch would do it and she would tell us about it and we would scold them. To her they were as real as other people and she would play with them when she was alone as well as when she was with us. They lived with us until she had to go off to school in Kindergarten. Every morning we had to shake he... [More]
