My name is Shelly, I'm a 16 year old girl and I've looked at this site for years and have had many paranormal experiences, but this is my first submission.
So earlier this year in maybe around May, June, four of my friends in our elective class drama decided to draw up a Ouija board. We were behind the stage part, it's an old compound room in my school and there was a windows letting light inside where we're sitting. I knew how they worked and knew they were nothing to mess with, although considering it was just paper I thought it wouldn't work and joined in as a bit of fun.
Now, my friends (all girls my age) decided that I had had the most experiences with spirits and stuff, so that I should be the one to ask questions, and I agreed.
Now my friends names were (not real names) Felicity, Mckenzie, Shiona and Holly. All my friends believed in the supernatural but Felicity was a bit skeptical who couldn't be convinced easily. But she was definitely convinced.
Now, me, Shiona and Holly all had two fingers on this little magnifying glass we used (because it was a paper board we had to improvise obviously) and then we started. Me and Holly had fake nails on and our fingers could barley fit on the board, and Shiona's fingers were shaking so much trying not to move it, so I know 101% that neither of us could have moved it.
So we began with Felicity and Mckenzie watching. I asked a question asking if any spirits were with us... It took us a few goes (but not many) before we came in contact with a spirit. I asked "How old were you when you passed?" 3.
"Where you a boy or a girl?" Girl.
Now I don't know about my friends, but I didn't picture a creepy little girl with long black hair or anything, I just pictured a little three year old girl.
"What year did you pass in?" And that's when we didn't get an exact response, it just went to random numbers and letters.
"What was your name?" Also random numbers and letter, which was fair enough, what three year old can spell?
So I'm not an idiot and I knew spirits can lie, so I asked "Are you a friendly ghost?" Yes.
"So you were human in your past life?" Yes.
"Are you related to any of us in any way?" No.
"Do you have any messages for us?" (Now I can't remember if it was just random letters again or a 'no')
"Can we say goodbye now?" Yes.
(We also asked other questions like if it had any family left, or any siblings but no questions really important enough to add.)
Now after a few minutes all of us were talking and we were all feeling good about this and thought it was sad about that little girl.
So we decided to try again and when we did it, the magnifying glass wasn't really moving much but it was trying... Me and Shiona (who were next to each other) got a bad feeling and I thought my back felt cold. So we said goodbye to the spirit.
Anyways, that night everything was fine and I went to bed around 10:30pm. I've always had problems with waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to get back to sleep. And that night (or morning) I woke up at exactly 3am. Now most the time in the middle of the night I hear things that freak me out a bit (I'm just a naturally scared person, especially considering previous things that have happened in my house). But that night I just went on my phone and heard nothing out of the ordinary and fell asleep about an hour later.
The next day in drama I told my friends how I'd woken up but we all just didn't think anything of it. My friends wanted to do the Ouija board again but I didn't want to because now I knew it worked I didn't want to test my luck. So me and Mckenzie were out on the stage rehearsing for a play thing we were doing, while the rest of the girls, Felicity, Shiona, Holly (and now another girl Paigon) were out the back stage trying to do it again.
Me and Mckenzie were out there for about 20 minutes when it was other people's turn to rehearse so me and Mckenzie went back stage to see the other girls.
"Shelly, come see if it works for you, nothing's been working for us" one of the girls were saying to me, so (because I'm of course an idiot) I sat down with them and did it.
Now this time it was me, Mckenzie, Felicity and Paigon (I think, it was a couple months ago). As soon as I did it, it worked. But I then said that I'll sit with them but don't want to participate. So it was just the other three girls doing it (and yes we said goodbye). Felicity was asking the questions now.
"How old were you when you passed?" 3.
"How'd you pass?" More random letters.
By now I'm just kind of looking around at my friends as we all sort of realise it's the same spirit as yesterday. "Ask if it's the same spirit from yesterday" I say to Felicity.
"Are you the same spirit from yesterday?" Yes.
By now I'm getting sort of a bad feeling, and I look over at Shiona and she's giving me the exact same look and we both look terrified. (Now Shiona is more of a tomboy and isn't into overreacting and stuff, so I knew that if she had the same feeling that I had, that I wasn't just making stuff up in my head.)
"Ask if it was at my house last night" I sat to Felicity.
"Were you at Shelly's house last night?" I was holding my breath and didn't realise until it started to go off of 'yes' (it was already on yes from a previous question) but then it did a circle and went back onto yes.
My friend Felicity automatically just said goodbye to it, and me (being the sook I am) cry my eyes out, so terrified that this thing had followed me home. And that it had came at 3am.
All my friends swore none of them had moved it and I believed them because I'm very close with them and know they'd tell me if they'd done it, especially after seeing how upset I was.
That night I had a friend Sophie stay at my house. But after that I would wake up 2-3 times a night and be awake for sometimes hours. And almost always woke up at exactly 3am.
Only after a couple weeks I had a friend up the road (we'll call her Kelsey) stay the night at my house. I woke up as I usually did but was so tired I just checked my phone and tried to go to sleep. But I felt something pinch my eyebrow. I was really out of it because I was so tired and didn't feel scared because I knew Kelsey was right next to me. So I just kind of moved my blanket a bit, thinking it was nothing. But then something pinched my eyebrow again. I opened my eyes and saw nothing (my hallway light is on and my door is always open a crack for me to see). Now it wasn't hard, it was just like pulling on the hairs. I just fell back to sleep and a few days later cleansed my house with white sage.
Thank you for reading my story. As you could imagine it was very frightening at the time as I thought it might not of been a friendly spirit if it kept come at 3am. But it seems like a friendly little girl if all she did was pinch my eyebrows? I haven't had anything go wrong since really. But I might upload some stories of other happenings.
