My name is Angelique. I have just moved into a new home (I think it is around three hundred years old.) It is very large and has four floors. I am not going to waste your time by describing what the whole house looks like, just the cellar as this is where most of the activity happens.
First of all, whenever I am in any of the rooms other than the cellar it feels very cold, even when I have turned the heat on and closed all the windows. The only other people I live with are my two roommates, Seura and Amy, so it's fairly empty around the house. I also feel sometimes like someone or something is watching me. This mostly happens when I am cooking in the kitchen or when I am trying to sleep.
One time when I was having a bath I saw the shower curtain move about a foot in my peripheral vision. I then saw a white mist for about half a second before it vanished, which could have very well been my imagination. I was a bit spooked though.
Now to the cellar. The cellar is fairly small. You enter through a set of double doors and then walk down I think six stairs. The floor is carpeted for some reason. There is a very wide hallway for about two seconds of walking straight and then a big, open area where we haven't placed anything yet except for out boxes. The lighting is very dim because the only source is lanterns on the walls and there are wine racks, which to me makes it feel ancient, as if it was a cellar back in medieval times.
About two days ago I was entering the cellar to retrieve one of my boxes when I swear I felt a hand brush my face. It was cold and very soft, as if a mother were calming her child by brushing her hand against their cheek. I was stunned after that and remained standing in the same spot for about ten seconds. Then I ran upstairs, frightened.
The next time I came downstairs was with one of my roommates, Seura. (Let me tell you now that all three of us very much believe in spirits/ghosts/entities, whatever you wish to call it.) I told her to come down with me because of what happened earlier.
Now, what I am about to tell you is very true, and I know I was not imagining it or dreaming because Seura told me she saw it as well. As I was grabbing one of my boxes, I saw a black shadow hand rest gently over mine, trail up my arm, brush against my cheek, smooth my hair and then disappear. I felt it too. Seura was frozen the whole time. She said she saw it and was too startled to move. I just decided to hurry up and get my box so I lifted it. Seura was beside me and obviously afraid, so she was walking fast. Suddenly it was like we both ran into an invisible wall as about a foot away from us a large wooden block fell from the ceiling. We fell over and after examining it noticed that it was not a part of the ceiling. When we looked up it was intact.
Just today I went back down to the cellar with Seura, Amy and my ouija board. We lit some candles and sat in a circle around the board. We first asked 'Is anyone here.' The pointer immedietly moved to 'yes'.
Amy said it felt like someone was standing beside her and it was scaring her, so we moved a bit away. We then asked 'What is your name.' It said 'Davide.' Let me tell you that it wasn't hesitating in any of its answers.
I assumed it was a man because of its name.
We asked some more questions like 'How old are you'. It said 'centuries'.
It was when we asked 'Why are you here' that it replied 'To protect you'. Right after that all the lanterns and candles went out and we heard quiet, menacing, demonic growl from the corner of the room. Frightened, we left everything there (after moving the pointer to goodbye) and ran upstairs.
I haven't gone back to gather my items, I am too afraid. What should I do?
