I’m 40 years old. I have played with the Ouija board many times in the past with friends and had never had a bad experience. I always thought it was just for fun.
In February of 2010, we just moved into a new home In Michigan. It was all updated, looked so beautiful but was actually built in 1980′s. I know since it was a new house, we heard noises and we all accused each other of who left the lights on after I know we turned them off etc.
At night when I would stay up watching TV and everyone else was a sleep. I swear I would hear someone walking around in the kitchen. I even got up thinking my son got up but no one would be there. Another night, when it was just me up, I heard a door open and foot steps. Again I thought my son got up cause his room was on the main floor, again I listened cause from the living room I couldn’t see into the kitchen. I heard the walking going on for a while then it sounded like someone opened up the fridge. I then flew up out of my seat, was going to yell at my son for being up so late and again no one was there and I know for a fact I heard this. I went into my sons room thinking I’d see him awake and he was sound to sleep in his bed. Back of my mind I was wondering if we had something there but brushed it off.
One Saturday afternoon, my daughter, who was 17, said she was bored. She then asked me if I would play the Ouija board with her for fun. I first said oh you want to bring something into our new home. But thought I had never had anything bad ever happen before so I told her I would. We went into my bedroom so it would be quiet. It was only her and I playing and in the room.
We had a Ouija board already never really played much, used a shot glass cause we lost the pointer that came with it, we got a ghost named ‘mlk’ would always say ‘mlk’, wouldn’t say what it stood for, (at first), it said it was a female and she lived in the house with a man named ‘stay’ we kept asking if that was his real name, it would say yes, we asked all kinds of questions etc. then after about an hour of playing and we noticed the room got a little cold, and we kinda just looked at each other, never experienced that before, so I decided to record what we were doing. Never done this before out of all the times I ever played.
I placed the recorder down next to the board and started asking questions again. I asked if your hear with us, do u like us living here, the shot glass went to yes. I said, can you say my name into the recorder? The shot glass went to yes, I said go ahead and say my name. We heard nothing, my daughter and I were quiet to give it time to do so, I then asked did you say it? and the shot glass went to yes. I then asked a few more questions, found out they were both in there 80′s and found out the mlk, stood for May, that’s all she would say. I asked if they were nice ghosts and she said yes, I said do you make noises in the house to try and let us know your hear, and she said yes but didn’t want to scare us. I then said you do know if I ever see you I would move out. and the shot glass went to yes I know, and then moved to, we don’t want to scare you. I said yes I would be scared.
Well we finally quit the game and I went outside to smoke and when I came back my daughter said she was listening to the tape and she said you can hear a woman’s voice on it. I said no way… she said ya, listen, she “May” didn’t answer by voice to all of my questions but when I asked her to say my name, you can hear right after I ask, someone or “her” saying Cindy, perfect as day, and then when I asked, you know I’d move if I ever seen you, you can her a, yes, right after that.
At the end when we were closing out I had said if your nice and you don’t scare us, you can stay but I don’t want to see you or we will move out of here, and then you can hear, a yes… it was only me and my daughter in the room and every time we asked a question we were both quiet, you can even hear the glass sliding in the recorder cause we weren’t talking, so that freaked me out that you can hear her voice on the tape.
I have never done that before and now that I recorded a Ouija board session, and got that on it, which to this day I still have cause I still cant believe it, I have never touched one again! I don’t let my daughter play with it. I’m a true believer now that there is ghosts out there. I have moved out of that house, not because of them, but cause of work, but I truly believe they are there but not to hurt no one. I play the tape every now and then cause I still cant believe it but still curious to see if I can get another voice on tape. I want to try out of curiosity but scared too, if that makes sense. Her voice was very kind not scary at all, which makes me want to see if I can get another voice on tape but like all other stories, scared it wont be so nice next time around. I play the tape for others to hear and they think its freaky too.
I threw the board away when I moved, but wonder if they moved with us cause at times it does sound like someone is walking around in my kitchen. I guess the biggest question is if I do try one day with just the recorder no board and ask if anyone is here, would I invite something in? Hope you enjoyed my story and hope I explained it ok, just so weird we can here her perfectly. Kinda exciting and scary knowing they were in the room with us and we didn’t even know it, thinking it was just a game. I have always wondered and tried to research for that house if there ever was a May that lived there. Still have not found out that answer but if I ever had papers showing that there was a May that lived there in the past years I’d really be shocked.
