This story took place in December of 2004 at my sister Kelly's apartment in Mesa, AZ.
My whole family has dealt with the paranormal for all of our lives, but my sister Kelly and I have had the most experience with it. She had recently broken up with her boyfriend and had been living alone for a good month by this time. Needing company she invited us, my girlfriend Tamrah and I over to her place to hang out.
Now, Kelly had already told me she had something new in her apartment, and where it came from, she hadn't a clue. She told me that one day she came home from work and walked straight into the kitchen to put her purse and coat on the counter as she usually does when she gets home. She ran a bath and got in for a little bit. When she got out, after doing whatever a girl does when she's done bathing, she went into the kitchen to get a drink. To her surprise her purse was sitting in the middle of the floor in the kitchen. Nothing fell out, it wasn't on it's side, it was sitting normally on the kitchen tile. This wasn't the only time this happened to her, but it was her first in this place.
She's also had other things mysteriously end up exactly in the middle of the floor, like a bowl, a glass, mainly things you would find in a kitchen.
So back to my story. We went over there late afternoon and did the usual, hang out outside and smoke and talk and play a little bit of Dance Dance Revolution. We're nerds, I know. We got into the conversation about the happenings in the apartment. My girlfriend was a little freaked out, but we were able to get her more excited than afraid somehow, so we turned off all the lights and tried to get it to do something. Demands and questions for a good 30 minutes but nothing ever came of it.
We turned the lights back on and decided to go another route. We took a tube of my sister's chapstick and placed it on the tile, almost exactly an inch away from the grout in each direction in the corner of the tile piece. We told it that it obviously likes to move things, then it should move the chapstick. We waited in the living room for a while, but it didn't move.
While in the living room talking, I was telling them about a creepy house not too far down the street. The front of the house was wrapped in a screen and two lion statues on pedestals. The creepy lion statues. One of my friends had the key to the house, which was for sale, because she was good friends with the realtor and would help with open houses. The realtor had told my friend that 6 people died in the house since it was built. So, being a creepy story and all and it being not too far down the road, they took interest in the story, so we hopped on the internet to try and find the house. Since I didn't have the address, we couldn't find a thing. Not even a death story, which is what we were more interested in anyways.
I decided to take a drive and get the address since it was only about 10 minutes away. Before we left we picked up the chapstick off of the floor and set it back on the counter. We had been about 30 minutes. As soon as we got back all 3 of us went straight to the bedroom, and of course I had to glance at the chapstick to make sure it hadn't moved on it's own, but it was still on the counter. We typed in the address in Google and started our search.
Tamrah asked if we wanted a drink. She got up, walked out of the room, and not even 2 seconds later from her walking around the corner into the hallway she screamed and ran back in the room yelling "OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD!" Scared the crap out of my sister and I! Of course we're starting to freak out now and we're like "What?! What?!". With her eyes wide open and her hand over her mouth and she just said, "Go look!"
Kelly and I walked out of the room, slowly looked around the corner into the kitchen and found the chapstick lying on the floor, on the same tile, in the same position we had put it in before. I'm talking the same distance we measured earlier that night. I thought it was Tamrah that had done it at first, but then I realized she had JUST walked out of the room. There's absolutely NO WAY she could have done that in the 2 seconds she was gone. It took me about 10 to 15 seconds to just position the round tube on the tile floor so it wouldn't roll and be an inch away from each side. This is when I knew my sister wasn't bull crapping me about this ghost.
