Real Ghost Stories

The Demon In The House

 

Wow I haven't even thought about this in so long, but recent events triggered it and I needed to let it out. My fiancΓ© doesn't believe in ghosts, demons and the paranormal. The only thing he knows is that they're all 'ghost stories' since nothing's happened to him. Mind you, since he's met me he's witnessed a few things but thinks it's just a figment of his imagination. But this isn't about him - it's about me and my experiences. I can tell you stories about stuff that happened when I was five, when all my experiences started, but this happened when I was thirteen/fourteen. I'm currently twenty-one, and I still have nightmares about this. Let's begin.

I'll start off with giving a brief history about me and the house I'm talking about. Since I was a child I've always been a little more... In-tuned? With the paranormal. They triggered seizures sometimes at night, but of course I just thought I was sick back then because I could never remember what happened before the episode happened, my mom and dad always saying that I was 'sick' and that 'I'd get better soon'. I believed them until I was old enough to put pieces together.

ANYWAY! This house in particular was across the street from Dundurn Castle, which was haunted on its own. It's a museum now, allowing tourists and locals to enter the mansion and look at the history of my old city. It had been there since 1835, and the houses across the street were almost one hundred and two years old when my parents bought the house. Only later would I find out that they were built to house the maids and butlers of the castle. You can read the history about the castle and such if you search for it on Google, there's an official website as well - so if you want to learn more, go ahead and research.

Back to the story at hand.

My parents had separated, my mother moved to the mountain in Hamilton, Ontario with her sister. She had taken my brothers and me with her and we were on our weekly visit with my father. It was a Friday night; my dad had already begun packing his things in our house on York Blvd to move back home with his parents. He stayed there though, since we had a puppy that my Grandma refused to bring into the house. Never being a fan of hockey, he bought tickets for my brothers and himself to go see the Hamilton Bulldogs play down the street at Copps Coliseum. Before he left, I asked if I could invite my friend Deanna over so I wasn't alone. He agreed and I called her, inviting her over to watch the first couple InuYasha movies.

It was great - she was my best friend at the time and I hadn't seen her in months. At this point, she was the only one I ever told about being able to see strange things and such, and it was then she told me she could do the same. If we were together, I would feel the safest. I was always scared of being in that house by myself, and when we got Sparky (our dog at the time) it just confirmed there was something wrong in that house. He'd freak out, growling and such, at the walls and stand in front of me as if to protect me from whatever was there. Sparky was beside me while I waited for her to show up, sitting on the floor beside me facing the hallway on the second floor. When he made his way to the stairs I figured Dee had finally shown up and followed him down the stairs to open the door. Luckily it was her who had arrived and I hugged her tight. It seemed like it was going to storm that night so I was happy she made it safe and sound.

We walked upstairs into my brothers bedroom (I had the basement bedroom, which I enjoyed at first until I kept having nightmares) and I shut the computer room door so we could have a good talk while I looked for the DVDs that were in one of the drawers. Sparky had nested into a ball on the opposite bed while Deanna had been asking me how I was doing, and if I met any new friends at my new school. I started talking about Alex and Kim, who were my good friends at Saint Daniel's Elementary. We had already finished the first InuYasha movie and I was starting to put it away and grab the second DVD when Dee mentioned if I felt safe in the house alone.

Of course I told her the truth, stating that I didn't and it was one of the main reasons I asked her to come over. She asked if I felt like I was being watched, and I said constantly in this house. Anywhere else, I didn't feel like there were eyes watching my every move. Sparky had already perked his head up and positioned himself in front of me again, sitting down and alert; Dee patted him on the head and stood up, mentioning that we should move out of the room and into the computer room to do some research. Knowing that I have had nightmares in the house before, she asked me to recall anything that I can remember from any one of them. I threw my hands up in the air, wondering what the hell she was up to.

I told her I couldn't remember much, but it seemed like an angry spirit was after me in each of them. I even thought to mention that when I brought Sparky out for a small walk in the backyard from him to do his business at night, that in the bushes I could feel someone staring at me and hear a bit of laughter. Sparky always seemed to bark in that area too - so I always wondered why he did. We researched about spirits and all we could find was that it was a between a possibility of a demon or a poltergeist. That was when I had enough, getting out of my seat and grabbing a piece of paper and a pen.

The reason I did this, was because I read online somewhere that we could communicate with the dead through 'automatic writing', and that was what I planned to do. I wanted to know what was in my house, what could have possibly caused my dad to hit my mom every night, what took away my mom's eyesight... It just all seemed to connect with each other. Dee looked at me strangely and I wrote down the first question: "are you here?"

Of course, it answered "yes."

I glanced over at Deanna and inhaled sharply, Sparky was growling then too - so I knew it must have worked. I gulped, glancing down at the paper and wrote my second question: "what is your name?" It was then we heard a loud banging noise downstairs, Sparky sprung up and ran down the stairs as fast as he could. Dee and I followed, looking around the living room, dining room and kitchen. Nothing had happened. I let out a sigh of relief, double-checking to see if the windows and doors were locked up. Sparky had gone to his water bowl at this point and Deanna was sitting down on the couch when I finished double-checking everything. I joined her, a worried smile on my face. She asked me if this was the first time I tried to contact it with automatic writing, and I told her the truth. It was, because every other time I would yell for it to go away and leave me alone.

That worried my parents into thinking I was insane, so I stopped that and didn't tell it to leave me alone for a while.

It was then we heard scratching and we thought it was Sparky, who had gone under the couch by our feet, that was just stretching. We laughed it off and we both decided to get some chips before we went back upstairs to watch the second movie. We both moved to the kitchen and heard something fall down the stairs. I freaked out, thinking Sparky had hurt himself, and I rushed to the staircase. Sparky was growling at nothing and I looked down at my feet. There was a chef's knife there and when I touched the handle it was cold. Instinctively, I glanced at the wall and on it was "Mamon". I screamed and Dee rushed over to see what happened. When she saw that, she ran upstairs to grab her things, just as I did. I ran around the house grabbing important things and shoving them into a bag (Sparky's food, a couple bottles of water, some food, a blanket, couch pillow and the house phone) and my own sweater, jacket, dog leash and keys.

When my dad got home from the hockey game, Deanna had already gone home and I was in the blanket, Sparky had fallen asleep on my lap and I was leaning against the brick wall on the pillow. I simply refused to go into that house without my dad. I didn't tell my dad about my experience, because if I mentioned the writing on the wall I would have been blamed for it. He didn't see it until the day he went to get everything out of the house a month and a half later, and asked me about it. I played stupid, I didn't want to think about it anymore.

Anyway, that's my story. If there is ANYTHING you guys can tell me, I am willing to discuss in the comments. I still think until this day that this... 'Mamon' was a demon, possibly higher ranked. I didn't notice until now that I had goosebumps while I wrote this. But yeah, this is one of many stories I have for you all. Thank you for taking the time to read it.

i think that I read this weird kind of writing before... Maybe the same writer of the Zozo lover, or the Ouija board trilogy?!. So creative!

But come on! A "ranked" demon who came from the other realms just to try his new white board pin and call dibs on you that never came back again after that!, what's the matter... You have a creative block?

Ladyglow- I did read both pages. And this could just be a young girl tryin to write her story the best she knew how considering the site puts much into that. I'm just saying NONE of us can know for sure what is fake and what is true. My story is still waiting to be published but one of my experiences was so terrifying to me and I have searched for years to see if anyone has seen the same thing and when I found this site I thought it was the perfect place for advice. And to me all those comments were bullying. And I don't agree with it. If you don't believe move on to the next story why spend that much time being hurtful when there's no 100% sure way to tell if it is true or false. The best wrote and played out story on here could be false you just simply don't know, a risk we all take here. And the whole google thing maybe she looked at an unreliable site. I Just think all these comments were mean and unnecessary.

deidrej24: with the due respect but I think you need to read ALL the comments to this tread, including the previous page, and this would give you a good idea of what RedWolf is talking about.
You are right, "This is a site where people are supposed to be able to come talk about there experiences without getting ridiculed." Unfortunately many people use YGS to try their luck like horror writers and submit overdone stories that are hard to believe and I am afraid this particular story is one of them. 😒

Redwolf- you are extremely disrespectful if you don't have anything better to do than go ranting on a stranger calling them a liar you need to get a life. And how do you know her parents would take her to the doctor? Some people don't have parents that give a crap. (not sayin her parents are this type) and she may not be an expert in automatic writing but demons/entitys have been known to do crazy things so you never know. And insulting your intelligence? Lol your insulting yourself by getting so offended by a story that YOU HAVE NO IDEA IF ITS TRUE OR NOT. This is a site where people are supposed to be able to come talk about there experiences without getting ridiculed. You don't deserve to be on this site.

Miracles51031, as everybody else has said here already, we meant no disrespect to the mods. I'm sure you guys are working very hard (and I don't mind pitching in too, I have experience in the editing department). We were just responding to the OP's BS story.

Miracles
We mean no disrespect to you or any other mods. We appreciate the work you all do for us. It must be very difficult for you to juggle work home life and this. I wish I could help out.
That being said we are just having some fun with this story. The O/P has not posted anything to either clarify the story or ask us to quit our little party. We certainly would stop if the O/P asked.
So grab a cold one relax and enjoy your weekend.
Regards
Red.

My dear Holmes,
I know that when you say something then that is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth😐 😁
No need to clarify to me. When I stated that I stood corrected, I meant it.
Remember!I am your bumbling stumbling Watson 😊

Hey val - just caught your comment about "life" (yep, got one of those and am trying to do the part that pays the bills πŸ˜‰). But I did want to step in and say thank you for your comments and support.

A lot of times it does appear as if we just toss BS stories in here, but we don't. There really are guidelines we have to adhere to and, even though I've requested this rejection category a couple of times, the administrator (s) haven't given us the option to reject a story based on our opinion that it is complete bullsh*t. (I still have my fingers crossed, though.)

And, yes, if y'all are counting sometimes there are only 3 new stories in a days' time. But you really don't see the dozens that are sent back because we just cannot publish them. Sometimes I wonder what the reaction would be if we did just that, though πŸ˜†

Dear Watson, Honestly truly I was not 'hinting' at anyone. I just thought, a reminder for all (me too) on how hard what the mods do was in order. Because believe me when I say there are times I read a 'story' and sit here thinking "How the heck did this get published?" And I guess too, I just think that every once in awhile for no other reason then giving a sincere pat-on-the-back maybe our mods should get one.
*Take's Wishful's margarita* Thanks - just got home from work- thirsty and very hungry. Any of Ari's Mishti Doi left? I'd like to try some. UGHHH! I think I just gained 10 pounds just reading all the stuff you guys brought!

Awesome, this is turning into a blockbuster of a party - thank you so much for joining me, and for bringing along all the food & drinks - anyone who hasn't joined yet is certainly welcome to come as well...we've got quite a spread!

[at] Ari (*slaps high-five), thanks! Every once in a while, everyone just needs a good rant, don't they? It's very cleansing... Boy did it feel good to get all that out! Haha,

[at] Mysterious_sunset- yes... If this author is the one I'm thinking of, then *sigh...no doubt this won't be the last. Just the last one under this username...

[at] lady_glow - how very kind of you! This blanket is indeed going to have to be huge!

[at] Ari- (*slaps high-five) thanks! You know how sometimes, you come across something really, Really frustrating, and you just need to rant about it? Yeah... Have to admit though (*takes deep breath), it was very cleansing! Feeling much better, now that I got that all out!

(* takes a sip of icy margarita, samples one of Redwolf's hot wings)

[at] Redwolf, ha - yeah, I didn't know automatic writing was so easy, either - until "educated" by the O/P of course! Next time I lose my keys, all I have to do is a quick scribble on a piece of paper, and *BAM, my hand just writes the answer..."they're in your other hand". D'oh! On a serious note, sorry you had to go through that experience with you child, and really glad it was a one-off event!

[at] Smoken- Sweet! Thanks for the homebrews... Here in the US, it's Memorial Day weekend and lots of people have off this Monday, so I would say, an extra-long weekender is in order! Glad you could make it!

[at] girlie- awe, very thoughtful, thanks- we needed a dessert! It's cool if you want to bring along Sparky - doesn't look like the O/P is going to be able to make the party... Too bad, she's missing out on one heck of a good time!

(*samples some Puran-poli...mmmm...sweet warm flatbread!)

[at] Allesgute- glad you could make it, and thanks for bringing along all this great food - I don't know if there will be leftovers, because the crowd is loving it! Since it doesn't look like the O/P is going to make it, I'll stand in for her & thank you for following her advice & "googling it" to come up with that eye-opening research on Mammon! Maybe she was trying to say she's being haunted by Caesar... AND now her dad has Caesar's ancient signature on his wall! 😲...hey, has anyone brought Caesar salad? For some reason I find myself in the mood...

Thanks for coming, everyone! Hey, does this park have a pool? πŸ˜†

There are quite a few holes in this one. I have to lean towards the fake side, partly because the writing on the wall seems like something out of a movie. And I also find it very hard to believe that your dad didn't notice until a "month and a half" later.

Oh, and by the way, I did some researching on the name 'Mammon' and this is what I got on Wikipedia: Mammon, in the New Testament of the Bible, is material wealth or greed, most often personified as a deity, and sometimes included in the seven princes of Hell. Mammon may have also been a reference to Caesar whose tax coin claimed Caesar was a god, forcing Jews to break the first and second commamdments to have no other gods, nor to have their engraven images, or idols everytime they paid taxes or tribute to Caesar. Mammon may have also been a reference to government, since the creator of money is government. Jesus was discussing two masters and the only other master besides God was Caesar.

Dear SmokenMirrors,
Don't worry. I think Val was hinting at my earlier comment and answering in general. Or do I stand to be corrected My Dear Holmes?

I know the mods are having a tough time. I do not intend to take anything away from them. With all due respect, I was just having fun, surrounded by friends, on this picnic day! 😜

Sorry Val. I wasn't having a dig at the Mods. Although re-reading my comment I can see how it could be read that way.

I was mealy trying to say that the comment section had become an interesting read in it's own right. 😳
