As long as I can remember, the supernatural has always been attracted to my family. Demons, ghosts, spirits... I've come to realize that they always seem to be causing mischief around the houses we live in, following us, and being the reason for many of our own places having been blessed by priests. As a moth takes to a bright light in the dark, the unexplained takes to my family, and I'm convinced it's my sister...
Let me tell you a little about my family. In some way or another, we all ended up in Spokane, Washington. I have an older sister (33), an older brother (27), and a younger brother (18). I seem to be smack in the middle at age 21. My mom and dad have been divorced since I was a little kid, so if I did see them together, it would weird me out.
A long time ago, when my sister was in her teens, she and her friends got together for what seemed to be mere child's play. They pulled out the Ouija board they had put together with cardboard. On the backside of the cardboard, in each of the corners, the four of them put their own drawing which depicted them in some way. Ouija boards that have been personally made and have extra work put into them usually tend to get the most activity. They are, in a sense, more powerful because they are a lot more meaningful to the person(s) who made them.
Everyone settled around in a circle, sitting on the bed in a dark room in the back of the old two-story home. They were quietly sitting patiently, fingers barely touching the planchette, asking questions they shouldn't be asking and getting some real crazy answers. Needless to say, my sister was engaged at the time and when my brother-in-law walked in on them, he was quite furious and made them throw the board out. My sister took the board and folded it into four sections and tossed it in the trash. The past was now the past, no big deal.
My sister was in the living room doing whatever she was doing at the time a few nights later. My brother-in-law came into the room and asked, "I thought you got rid of that Ouija board I told you to get rid of?" My sister, simply being a defensive person, threw up her wall and was being cocky saying it was gone. However, he was holding it in his hand and could clearly see the crease marks which should have been in it were not there. So, assuming that he wanted to play a joke, she figured he'd just made another one to mess with her. He was very adamant when telling her he wasn't joking around. She took the board from him just to look it over. When she turned the board over, all four corners held the little drawings they put on the board, something that only the four of them really knew about. Even if he did know about the drawings, recreating them was another thing.
A week went by and nothing out of the ordinary had happened since the night they decided to rip that board into pieces and toss it into the trash, until tonight... Getting up from her movie, everyone was in the living room chilling and hanging out. My sister walked to the kitchen to find something to drink and get some more food to munch on along with the movie. Sitting on the counter in perfect condition, seemingly staring at her in a weird way, was, of course, the board that I believe is the root of all evil. Scaring the living daylights out of her, she literally peed herself and went back into the other room screaming. To get rid of it, my brother-in-law took the board and gave it to our uncle. He didn't believe in anything of that nature, which is why we believe it never came back because we don't know what he did with it to this day. No one seems to really care what he did. For all we know, he tossed it on a shelf in his garage.
Ever since then, every house my sister has lived in has strange things happing. Many places she's stayed at have been blessed. Everything usually stops until she moves again and it seems they follow her or a new entity finds her company. As of now, the house she resides in is far from normal and I'll have to save that for another day.
To sum everything up, I thought this story would be a great way to get my foot in the door and let you all know why my family is the way it is and the cause for a lot of our hauntings. In the future, I'll write more stories about weird things and what became of them. And another thing, a Ouija board is no game. Eventhough you can buy it at a local toy store (which I still can't conmprehend) and take it home, it opens up a door that is nearly impossible to close, at least it has been for my family. Thanks for taking the time to read my story, I greatly appreciate it. Feel free to comment
