Me and my friends have been fascinated with the paranormal for a long while and it sounds stupid but we kind of want "scary" things to happen just to prove that there is something more to life. So we had to come to school on a Saturday to do some Maths study sessions and when it ended, one of my friends- let's call him Gary- suggested we do a Ouija board outside the school library. It all sounds rash but we research on things like this so we were prepared I guess.
So we all sat in this secluded area outside the library and Gary drew up the Ouija board on a piece of paper. We heard that any form of boards work. The people involved was me, Gary and another friend (let's call her Ramona). I'm making up names in case they aren't comfortable being revealed online. Before we start we all say a prayer for protection and put out hands on a guitar pick which we used as a pointer. After a few deep breaths, Ramona asked "Are there any spirits wanting to communicate?" The pick moved to "Yes". Throughout the whole thing I was convinced it was Gary or Ramona but they swore it wasn't them and it was not me.
Then I asked for the spirit's name and it spelled out "T-E-D". From then we addressed it as Ted. One of us asked if it was friendly and the pick went to "Yes". After that we asked more questions but there was no response from Ted. Suddenly the pick started moving really fast towards "Goodbye", we were slightly upset to hear Ted wanted to go but we bade him goodbye politely.
I don't really know what to think, it seems immature using a guitar pick and paper but it did seem to work. I felt a prescence but it wasn't threatening it was almost like talking to a shy little boy. It was weird because when we asked questions me and my friends all seemed to stare at one area to our right without noticing as if we knew he was there.
Just wanted to share this little experience I had. Do you think my school could be 'haunted'? I find it unlikely as it was built quite recently- 2007 (it was a brand new secodary school and we are the oldest in the school though we're like 15/16). But I don't know how to explain Ted. Any suggestions or?
Thank you if you read all of this and you believe me, it means a lot.
