It was my tenth birthday and I had nine girls staying the night. Around twelve, two of my friends went to sleep but the rest of us stayed up. Around three, we started taking pictures with my friend Abby's phone.
We took a picture of my friend Jess on the couch. We noticed some kind of white smudge on the picture so we wiped the lens off, but the white thing was still there. We continued to try to get it off. Out of nowhere, Anna screamed. She yelled for us to look at the screen, and when we looked the "smudge" was moving. It had gone from a circle to an undefinable shape and just kept writhing there.
As we stood there dumbfounded, what ever it was disappeared but the wall appeared to have cracks going down it. We went over to the wall not knowing what to do. Sophie noticed that there was tapping in the fuze box. The lights went out putting us into complete darkness. When the lights came on seconds later, the cracks were gone and there was no sign of anything happening except our extreme fear of the basement. This was my first paranormal experience, I have had two more since then. One of them will happen just a week later when I see a white man walk through the hallway outside my room then vanish.
I recently let my curiosity and suspicions get the best of me and purchased an app that it supposed to use magnetic fields and other real tools to contact and see ghosts. I was a little doubtful about if it really worked or not. This doubt made me surprised when the device led me to the basement. Then, even more surprising, gave me an intelligent response. I asked out loud what it wanted and when the phone played back the audio it said help me. I then asked it to show itself and it responded by asking me why. When I said I needed to see it to help it, it told me don't. I still am not completely sure about the abilities of the app and whether they are real or not, but the instructions say that it is based on a real science. If anyone would like to try it and tell me if they believe it is real or not it is called ghost detect.
