This story isn't mine. It is the story of not only my mother in law but my father in law as well. This happened to the both of them years ago, before my fiance was born, so 25+ years ago in a small town in California called Blyth. It's very close to the boarder where Arizona and California meet.
Melissa and Dallas are divorced now but I've heard the story from both of them and the story is quite chilling. Melissa and Dallas were living in a house with Dallas's brother Mark.
Well Mark got together with some friends while Dallas and Melissa were out and they went down to the basement (which was his room) and "played" with a Ouija board. I cannot tell you what questions they may have asked or what may have happened. I'm sure they didn't take any precautions. Going off on a lark just trying to spook each other that sort of thing. But I can tell you the outcome of all of this.
One day Melissa went down into the basement to wash some laundry. (Mark was at work). Well she saw herself in the mirror but got scared because it was dark down there, so she kind of ran up the steps. When she got to the top her husband noticed she was a bit startled so he asked her what was wrong. She said she just got scared because she saw her reflection in the mirror in the basement. Dallas said there is no mirror in the basement. Sure enough there wasn't.
Dallas and Melissa both told me they had this dream in that house and it was the same exact "dream." They dreamt that a dark entity came to them at night while they were asleep and kept trying to take their souls. They could feel it inside of them and trying to take over and it was a terrible struggle to get free. Once free you awoke totally drained. Other friends that had slept over claimed to have the same dream.
Mark had a Pit Bull that would stay in the basement all day long and wait for him to get home from work. Well one day the dog just snapped. When Melissa went to go down there to do some laundry the dog ran out of there and killed Melissa and Dallas' s dog. Melissa said the dogs were best friends since they were puppies, but the dog slaughtered him. And she said afterward he was pacing in front of the home like a caged tiger.
Mark was scared of the dog after that and had him put down. Maybe the dog was just aggressive. I know Pit Bull's have a bad reputation, or maybe it was easier for the entity to enter the dog. Either way I believe they opened a door to something evil.
Ouija boards are like reaching into a closet door into a different dimension and what you pull out can be bad, good or in between. You just never know, but they definitely should never be used as toys.
