In the late 80′s, my older brother was really into hard core films and music. His bedroom walls were adorned with posters of every horror film villain to heavy metal bands such as W.A.S.P.
As were everyone in our sleepy town, we were southern Baptist. Devout southern Baptist. I remember a traveling evangelist came to our church. He preached about the dangers of rock music and even went as far as playing def leopard’s “hysteria” backwards! Well that was all it took for my mother. As soon as we went home, the movie posters came down and all of the cassette tapes of rock music were confiscated.
My mother put these items under her bed for the night until she could burn them the next day. I slept in my mothers bed that night so I know what happened is true.
At about midnight, I awoke to whispers. Once my eyes adjusted to the light, I could see that my mother was peering over the blanket, wide eyed at the foot of the bed. As I looked in that direction, I could see an indentation in the covers, as if a cat was pacing across the foot of the bed. My mother drew her feet up to herself and the whispering got louder and louder.
Mother grabbed me, pulled me close and began to quote scriptures from the bible, from the book of Romans. We shut our eyes tight and my mother repeated scripture after scripture. Then suddenly, the whispers stopped. The scurrying across the foot of the bed ceased.
The next day, my mother took the items to a burn pile. It took almost an hour for the tapes to even begin to burn. And as they did, the whispers returned. But we, walked away and never looked back.
