My story begins when I was about 8 years of age. My sister Christina and her friend were babysitting me, but were messing with their Ouija board. My mother had thought they had gotten rid of this weeks beforehand but, to no avail.
My mother had told my sister of things that had happened to her when she was younger and swore that it brings bad presences through which follow you and are hard to get rid of. They were in the bedroom in the closet with candles around the board asking it questions like: who? what? where? and when? The board gave them an answer. I can't remember the name of the person but, it also gave and address. It was on to a location on the main road North Anthony Blvd. in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Her and her friend were determined to find out what this thing wanted to tell them. She packed the Ouija board up and had me get my shoes on to go with her. So we drove around looking for the address and it was really late and dark already. They finally found the address the "Thing" as I like to call it gave them. It was a cemetery. This alone just freaks me out to this day.
They take me with them into almost the center of the cemetery. We passed many statues and grave stones along the way. I was sitting by someone's head stone waiting patiently for them to finish was they were doing. The name given to them was next to them and they had placed candles all around and on top of it.
They began to ask it more questions. I'm not really sure what but, I do remember a few moments later, my sisters friend is struck with terror of something that was said to them.
Suddenly, the candles blew out and they turned to see one of the statues of an angel was looking right at us. It was originally facing the other side of the cemetery. They ran screaming leaving me behind. I got up and just remember the terror that went through my body when I saw this thing. The face was so white, and the eyes were hollowed out and black but, I could still feel that is was staring at me. Its mouth was open, almost like it was trying to say something. It terrified me. I ran out of there so fast and never wanted to ever go back. Years later I still have been trying to see if I can find any pictures of it online, but I haven't seen any yet.
My aunt told me a similar story that happened to her. To keep it short she was messing with the Ouija board as a teenager with a friend and they saw the white face in a window. She claims to have seen it for many years before finally getting baptized before her wedding and she never saw it again. I just wonder is this face good? Bad?
I will never forget her. Jenna was my best friend. She was mostly my sister, since I had no parents. My relatives were on the other side of the world, though I never knew where. They had no idea that I was an orphan, so I had to stay with Jenna and her mother. A few years later, it was her birthday, and she decided to have a sleepover. There were 4 of us. Me, Jenna, Elissa and Aamna. This was when the nightmare began.
We ended a game of Truth or Dare, then we had a vote of what to do next. Somehow we ended up choosing to play the Ouija Board. Jenna pulled it out of the back of her closet. It was brand new, and she said that she was saving it for the party. We all watched as she set down the board, then the magnifying glass thing. "This might not be safe," she has said. "So I'll be the one doing it."
Jenna lightly put her middle and index finger on the magnifying piece, then the same with her other index and middle finger. She stared hard at the board, concentrating, focusing. She chanted something, I forgot what it was, then waited. We all waited, anxious. Then the piece began to move; it vibrated lightly under Jenna's fingers. Someone squealed.
"Ask it something!" urged Elissa. "h-h-hello?"
The magnifying piece slowly slid to W. Aamna grabbed a pad and a pen from a desk, then wrote the letters as the piece slid down the board: W, H, A, T. "what?" I said, confused, then noticed there was more. D, O, Y, O, U, W, A, N, T.
Aamna quickly scribbled on the pad, then tilted her head. "'what do you want'...?"
Jenna, surprised, quickly said, "oh, we don't want anything, we're just trying this game out"
The piece scraped along the board, and spelled out, 'this is not a game'
"Jenna," Elissa said, shaking her shoulder. "are you SURE you're not moving that?"
"n-no," Jenna responded, staring at the board. "I think we should pack this away,"
Then the room started getting icy cold. A chill ran down my spine. I knew something was going wrong. Before Jenna could slam the things back in it's box, the piece moved again. Her hands were practically glued to it. The piece was darting faster and faster around the board, and poor Aamna had to write faster and faster to keep up.
'You have done something wrong,' the board spelled. 'its rude to leave someone without saying goodbye.'
And Jenna just dropped. She dropped to the ground from her heels, and didn't get up. The chill in the room faded, but we all felt like we were buried in ice. I checked her pulse gingerly. Jenna was gone.
Two weeks later I had a dream. First of all it was black, and I seemed to be walking into the darkness, then the place started twinkling with stars. I continued walking, then running, and soon started to fall and fall. Then, I think, I was in a room, and standing in front of me was a girl with shoulder length blond hair tied in a ponytail. She had chubby and rosy cheeks. The girl looked familiar. Maybe a distant school friend.
"hello." I said. "You know I'll be watching you," the girl said, as if I hadn't even spoken. Her eyes were pure black. "you know I'll be there for you. Tell Mother I say hello." And the girl just fell flat on her back.
I had woken up with a very tiny gasp, sweating and clutching the blanket. I closed my eyes and tried to remember my dream, then it all came flooding back to my head. That girl was Jenna.
After that, every week or even everyday, I saw something white in the corner of the bedroom, and a whispery little voice as quiet as a mouse murmuring my nickname. "missssssh maaaaaaaaaash..."
No need to be scared. I knew who that was.
The Ouija board also known as a spirit board, is a flat board marked with the letters of the alphabet, the numbers 0-9, the words "yes", "no", "hello" (occasionally), and "goodbye".It uses a planchette (small heart-shaped piece of wood)to indicate the spirit's message by spelling it out on the board during aséance.
But If things do get out of control then move the pointer to goodbye and that's it.Relax. Oh and never EVER burn the board. Beliefs says that it releases spirits, it couldn't be destroyed in any kind of way. Also never EVER insult the spirit because it will piss them off, you know by simply avoiding questions like "Is he cheating on me?" or "Are you sexy?" "Is he going to call me back?" kind of questions, they don't have time for that kind of questions. ask some polite questions, like "what's your name?" "how old are you?" . Other than that relax, you'll be fine. Oh but you should never use it alone, so if you're going to be alone, scratch that, get someone to use it with you. That's all you need to know.
