The Demon Side of my Brother

Posted on December 20, 2009

In the summer of 2005, when I was 9 years old, I was playing on the beach in Oregon with my brother, Thomas. He was almost 7 years old at the time. I was building sand castles and he was trying to find sea-shells. He ran up to me, showing me the cool shells. He wanted me to know if they were good enough. I asked him what they had to be good enough for. He said he was going to do something with them later. I told him they were really cool. And with that, he walked back to where he was finding shells and kept looking. And I went back to building sand castles.

Later that day, our mom and dad had told us that it was time for us to get back in the car to go to the motel we were going to be staying at. Once we got in the car, I looked over at my brother, who was having a hard time getting his car seat belt buckled. I told him I would help, but he just made this growling sound and told me he could do it himself. I told him fine; be that way. He finally got his belt buckled and we were on our way.

I kept looking over at him, and I kept catching him smiling in an evil way. I told him to stop, that it was making me nervous. He finally stopped, and he started to take out his shells. He asked me if they were sharp enough. I asked him what they had to be sharp enough for. He said he needed nice, sharp shells for what he was going to do later. I told him he can’t be using sharp things, but all he said was, “Whatever.”

When we got back to the motel, my brother asked me if his shells could hurt someone. I told him I would take those shells away if he kept asking me stupid questions like this. I was beginning to feel a whole lot nervous when my brother pretended to be stabbing something or someone and made stabbing noises like a knife plunging into someone’s heart or throat. I told him to stop or I was telling mom and dad. He stopped for awhile.

Then, a few hours later, he made those slashing sounds again. I told mom and dad what he was doing, and they told me that if he does it again, to tell them and they would do something about it. He did it even more than before, and I told mom and dad. They stomped into the room where my brother was, and told him to stop what he was doing. He then, growled, like nothing I’ve ever heard from a 7-year-old. It sounded like a demon to me. He marched over to my mom and dad and slashed a very sharp shell at them. I screamed, and my dad caught the hurling shell in his palm – creating a few cuts – right before the shell hit my mother. She was so horrified, that she told the family (except my brother) that we were going to take Thomas in to Father Hodge for an exorcism. We sprinkled the house with Holy Water for that night, and let things be.

The next day, we went to visit Father Hodge and he gave the exorcism. After that, my brother was fine. I don’t ever think I will get those “pretending-to-slash-you” moments. It was scarier than ever. All I wanted was my old brother back, and he is. And that is all I can ask for from the Lord.

    WOW….that is kinda creepy stuff that happened to your brother when he was 7 years old. You must of been terrified to see him like that at such a young age. Glad that he is okay now.

  2. Karen M. says:

    He could turn out to be a serial killer later in life!

  3. Karen M. says:

    I can, almost promise that I’ve heard this same story somewhere else!

  4. trolldoll1681 says:

    that sure must of freaked you out!

  5. KNOWTOMUCH says:

    Karen M. thats not a very nice thing to say!!! I thought that was a very scary time for your family… what did Father Hodge say about it???

  6. Jae says:

    LoL Karen don’t you think that was a little tooo blunt?! Don’t go scaring her more now. Breanna that was indeed a scary story but I am happy that your brother is doing a lot better and back to normal. And keep having faith in the Lord hunny. You’re on the right track. :)

  7. Karen M. says:

    K2M,

    I’m sorry that was insensitive, but it could be true!

  8. Hossam Hamdy says:

    I am glad that your brother is fine now, I think that he is just a small kid & may watched a horrifying movie & want to imitate some sights as the evil smile & other events.I think he will not repeat it again & you will enjoy playing with your brother,just love & trust him.
    Regards.

  9. M.Renee says:

    I do not believe your story- no one can get an exorcism that quickly-it has to be approved after a thorough investigation.

  10. Sean says:

    actually exorcisms were not uncommon in germany and i dont think that a father would hesitate especially if he believed that the boy was possesed becuase that would be an interesting one “yes ma’am he very well could be possesed but just in case i am wrong lets see what happens next.”

  11. matthew says:

    he was possesed look out for any strange happenings around you ar your fam and alwas bring a holy bible or sacred water

  12. Josh says:

    from this (and other reports) it seems that if someone is killed by a demon or someone being used by one, that their soul can go to Hell.

  13. Shelby says:

    Wow. That’s an eye opening story! I would have been scared out of my wits! I’m sorry that you had to experience such a dramatic story at such a young age. I’m kind of surprised that you knew about demons at 9… I didn’t know until a few weeks or so ago.

    Did you ever have any more experiences with demons or paranormal activites later on in your life or was this the only one?

    Also, do you know how the demon could have taken over your brother? Or when he would have done it? Was he acting strange earlier or before this event happened?
