At least a year back in the summer of 2008 I was living in a little house in north west London. When I’d first moved in in 2005 I did not notice any presence in the house expect maybe a slightly cold and empty feeling, friends often said that although my house was cozy and cluttered and still felt empty and it didn’t have a sense of home. I ignored these comments, But some nights I couldn’t help but a hear a little movement in the loft, the loft had previously been my sister’s room but she said she didn’t like it she couldn’t explain why so it became the junk room really, but I could often hear heavy objects being dragged and little taps and knocks, almost foot steps. When I would go up to the room the next day it would be different, some of my picture would be turned facing down and just clothes thrown on he floor. Again I ignored this.
It was no until the summer or my eighth year when I had started messing around with Ouija boards. Probably half to do with boredom and rebellion, but me and a couple of friends would go into the loft at night and bring along old Victorian dolls or old photographs, anything that we thought may attract spirits. We were naive and would not do the Ouija board in a sensible manor and laugh and mock the spirits that came, we’d ask personal questions and not say thank you, basically we would be a little disrespectful and I think this welcomed evil spirits into my home.
There were two spirits that came to the board that I didn’t particularly like. The first was a spirit that claimed to be a three year old girl, I straight away knew there was something wrong because this spirit has excellent spelling. Anyways� I carried on communicating with the ‘little girl’ and came to find that she had apparently lived in Liverpool and had been drowned by her father. I stupidly asked the question of if she was lonely or scared in the spirit world and she replied “Its ok, I have you.” that sent an instant chill up my spine and instantly knew to leave the board, I politely told her I had to leave and she replied “no” with a sense of anger in her strong push on the pointer, so strong it flew from me and my friend’s hands. The whole of speaking to her I had a funny feeling in my stomach.
The Second strange spirit that came to the board was a time when we had a very old china doll present, one that a friend of mine had found it a park when she was a young girl. This spirit was strong that the glass movements were quick.The conversation started with the spirit saying “Help” I asked what was wrong and it claimed to be trapped within the doll. We asked if there was anyway we could help the spirit and it said “join me”. We instantly left the board.
For I long time I lost interest with Ouija boards as well as being frightened of them but then strange things started to happen.
One night me and a friend where just chatting in my living room. Everyone else in the house was asleep, randomly during the night the radio turned on to the news, and they were talking about a raping that had happened near to me recently. Then the lights flickered and a chill ran through our spines at exactly the same moment.
Other incidents like this continued and the movement in the loft became a little more sinister as sometimes things would randomly break in there and things would go missing. This carried on until jus before Christmas when I suffered the most frightening experience of my life, One night when I was with a friend a fire broke out in the middle of the night, apparently the cause of fire were the candle I had lit earlier that night but I am certain I blew them out.
I guess its almost been a year but I’m moving into my old house soon and I’m not looking forward to it. I don’t want to tell my mum or my sister because they won’t believe me.
