So after Alan left, Mike put the Ouija boards out on the porch until he could get rid of them, which was suppose to be the next day. The next day came and went and he left the boards laying there, all but forgotten. I mentioned them to him and he mumbled that he would get rid of them "later". Needless to say, later has become never.
Things have become much more active lately. Now everyone is seeing the shadows a lot more often and Rob has heard the whispering too. All of us are experiencing cold spots all over the house, but especially in the downstairs rooms. Last week while I was in the shower, the air around me got freezing cold. I was shampooing my hair and suddenly felt something jab me in the stomach. You bet I got out of there fast!
The other night Rob was sleeping on the couch and I was sleeping in the recliner with the dog on my lap. Suddenly I was wide awake without knowing why, but I immediately felt extreme fear. I laid there for a minute just trying to adjust my eyes to the darkness and listening in the silence when simultaneously the dog started growling and Rob sat up and said "what was that?" and then laid back down, never waking up. It was so weird because he never opened his eyes and he looked like a zombie. If he would have done that after the dog started growling, it would have been more understandable, but he started saying that at the same split second as the dog started to growl. It was really creepy. To top it off, it was exactly 3:00 when it happened! Now I know that could have just been coincidence, so I don't put much stock in the 3:00 thing, but it certainly didn't help my fear to lessen!
Mike has started to stay at his new girlfriend's house more often, leaving the house to just me and Rob a lot lately. Fearing that we are crowding him out of his own space, I asked him if we were wearing out our welcome. He said no, but he feels very depressed and anxious when he's here lately. Alan stopped by for a visit and spent most of it staring into the kitchen. At one point he asked if Mike was home because he thought he saw him in the kitchen walking past the door. Later, out of earshot of Rob, he mentioned that he keeps seeing small shadows all around the living room.
I have become depressed and anxious too, and I can't sleep well at night. I wake up often, like a noise has startled me, but when I listen closely, I hear nothing. But sometimes during the day we can hear a man's voice saying things right out loud, but you can't understand the words. And the worst experience yet is that I keep seeing these tiny black shadows right on me, almost like there's a bug crawling on me, but when I look, there's nothing there. I didn't tell anyone about them when I first started seeing them because I thought they would think I was losing it. But Alan actually started to tell me that something was on me, and then stopped mid-sentence, when he looked directly at it and it disappeared.
I am a reasonable adult who doesn't drink or do drugs of any kind. I don't have mental health problems, and neither do my sons. I am trying to explain all of this away with rational explanations, but it is becoming impossible. I don't know what to think of all this. Yes, the Ouija boards are still on the porch and the cross is in the attic. Nobody has touched them or done any rituals or any kind of paranormal stuff with any of it. Rob and I will be moving back to our home in a couple of weeks, as soon as I get my new truck, and Mike is talking about moving in with his girlfriend. But until then, we are all creeped out by this place. Am I letting my imagination get the best of me, or could this stuff really be happening? I try praying for protection when we see this stuff or before we go to bed, but it doesn't seem to help. I hate to think that our overactive imaginations have created a mass hysteria, but it's even worse to think that it's really happening!
