Real Ghost Stories

Church Yards And Ouija Boards Don't Mix

 

I can hear you all now DONT USE OUIJA BOARDS! I know and have said the same plenty of times, this is why!

Back in 1996 I was 22 and at a friends place (deb) was around 10:30pm.

Deb was a friend of Abby, girlfriend to Spike, whose friend Rick was dating Deb so full circle. We were just sat chatting chilling out with a few drinks that went on to more drinks that became 5 very tipsy friends.

Rick started going on about a film he had seen involving a ouija board (cant recall film) and was going on about "how cool" it would be to try one.

If I was sober I would have put a stop to it there and then, but drink and stupidity go so well together. I even drew the thing on cardboard!?

So Deb is moaning: we had used one of her best glasses and her scented candles but was still joining in, Abby wanted nothing to do with it, Rick and Spike are laughing like little school boys and I feel "wrong". Not ill, not worried, but just wrong. As though I knew someting was going to go bad real quick but had no control over it.

To start it was the usual. Nothing except the odd push from one of the lads being daft, that is until the glass moved and spelt STOP LAUGHING! The lads stopped.

We started to ask questions~

Who are you? Mark!

Where are you ~ here and St Margrets!

Any messages for Spike, Abby, Deb, Carl? No!

For Rick? Yes

Rick sudenly screams like a little girl jumped up and ran into the kitchen!

We said goodby to Mark. No reply! 3 times we said goodby Mark, then he replyed goodby.

No one said anything for a long time, then Rick turned round and said "lets go find his grave"

We all looked at him as though he had said he was a teapot!

Are you crazy? Why?

"Need to see it" said Rick. "Ok in the morning." I said. "No now!" He replyed.

He was determind to go and kept asking until we all agreed to go with him.

12:45 am me, Spike and Rick walking through a church yard, sented candles in a glass (yes same glass) looking at old headstones looking for "Mark". Abby and Deb stood outside, Deb shouting, "dont break my glass its part of a set!"

Breaking the glass was the last thing I was going to worry about!

As we get to the back of the church yard there are 2 long stone seats facing each other easy seat 3 people on each one.

Now it was getting real cold and I needed to sit down for a few moments. Getting out my cigarettes I gave Spike and Rick one and sat facing the way out with Rick and Spike facing me.

Rick was looking around and I could tell he had something to say but felt worried about saying it, so I waited.

"I brought this," he said after a few more moments and took the cardboard ouija board out of his pocket. "Thought it might help find him" said Rick. What I and Spike said is sadly unrepeatable but was not polite.

All of a sudden the candle in the glass (was on the floor between us) went out, we are sat in the pitch black, a small flame appears in Ricks direction. I thought it was his lighter, but no: it was the cardboard, it had started to burn on its own!

The candle relights by its self, too. Rick and Spike ran, leaving me sat alone in a church yard with a burning homemade ouija board!?

I joined them in there little run.

Deb was going crazy, "my glass, where is my glass? My gran brought them" and stormed off into the church yard to collect it.

When she came back she was furious. "Who broke it?" she was shouting at us, "come on own up who broke it?" No one had touched it, but when she showed us the glass it was broken clean in two pieces, not cracked or blackened like it had over heated with the candle, but almost like it had been cut in half (like a coconut).

We left then and vowed never to try using a ouija board again!

(I replaced the glass set with some cut crystal glasses)

There's part in your story that was funny to me where you actually drew things on the cardboard, so it'll be an Ouijah Board. And your friends were mess up when they left you at the Church yard with that Ouijah Board. Take care and thanks for sharing

Taz,
I left you a VERY special email. Please read it ASAP.
It would mean the world to me if you could give a critique on the whole thing. Haven't decided what to do about it yet.

You know, that doesn't make sense, does it? It would tell me I have exceeded my daily voting privileges or whatever it says if that was the case. I still need the crown, DragonStorm πŸ˜†.

Taz - don't know why I can't vote for you, but I will vote that troll comment up whenever I can. Right now I'm signing off. See y'all later ❀

taz - then I can't for the life of me figure out why I can't vote for you. Uh oh... Nevermind 😳. Ummm...DragonStorm? Remember when I said I might need that crown back sometime today? I think I need it now πŸ˜†. Maybe I am out of votes entirely for today instead of just out of votes for you, taz. That would be the only other explanation. And right now I'm too tired to try and figure it out, so I'm just going with the Dumb Blonde thing πŸ˜†

i don't think its a daily thing miracles have voted up a few different peoples comments in the past week (ok a lot of up votes lol) and now keep being told to vote someone else, which I am doing!
Will return to original list when I can't up vote dragonstorm, lou, rook and darkness any more lol

taz - I thought the same thing, but I haven't voted for you today. At least, I don't remember doing so. Could be having a dumb blonde moment though. If I have, it's only been once, so unless they've changed the voting to only one time per person πŸ˜•. And that's okay too.

great idea miracles will just add it when the trolls get too much to bare
And I have the same problem with votes I'm guessing the voting has changed a bit and it won't allow too many votes for the same person annoying but hope will stop all the negitiviy been floating around so much lately but not getting into that.

taz - thanks for adding this! Maybe every once in a while, when one of our trolls gets on a roll, you can just pop this back on after one of their comments. Just to remind them πŸ˜‰ Oh, and I am being serious 😐

HI GUYS had to add this today a troll her in the uk that had been adding sick messages on f/b and other places has been taken to court over his trolling, found guilty! And sentenced to 18 weeks in jail (not long enough though)
And according to the papers to day its not the first troll to be taken to court.
Check it out at www.thesun.co.uk/the troll who prowled face book
Trolls beware! You can get taken to court over your garbage

DARKNESSSSSSSSS.
Yes mate sorry to say but my time in reception/ on internet has changed way too much I get 4 hours a night and that's rolling too so if I get on between 7pm and 11pm one day the next won't start until 11pm until 3am (like today) ~next day 3am to 5.30 am (gets too busy after that)
Then back to 7~11.
I miss our chats and putting the world to rights, plus sorting you out with the strange stuff πŸ˜†
Will be looking out for you every time I'm on though mate you and all the loonies but I do miss out most of the time 😭
