"Lindsey, what is this?" I asked my older sister. "It is a Ouija board," she told me, "it contacts spirits. Do you want to use it?" "Yes!"
I was very young at the time, only about seven or eight, so of course I wanted to. How cool would that be? Contacting the dead? I already knew about the ghost in our house, but I figured that this would be much much cooler.
We got the Ouija board out and set it down in the hall. Lindsey got one candle and lit it. She, her daughter, and I all turned out the lights, grabbed a couple of blankets, and started.
"Okay everyone put your fingers on this piece lightly. Do not move it yourselves, because it takes the fun out of it," she told us.
We started asking questions. "Is anyone here?" "Yes." "Are you nice?" "Yes." "How did you die?" "Accident" We asked it many other questions like "Are you a boy or a girl" "What is your name?" "How old are you?" It was so many years ago, that I sadly cannot remember any of the answers or the rest of the questions.
The candle started flickering. "Mommy, are the windows open?" my niece asked her mother. "No, honey that is the spirit."
Lindsey started just staring and then she said that we must stop, so we did. The candle blew out itself and Lindsey grabbed it and put the board away quickly.
My mother also told me that when Lindsey was younger she tried Bloody Mary. Why? I have no clue. Lindsey always liked doing that kind of stuff. I do not know why. I asked my mom if Lindsey ever saw Bloody Mary. She told me no. I asked Lindsey if she ever saw her. Lindsey told me no. I asked Lindsey if she would do Bloody Mary with me and she said no. I asked her why and she said because it was too creepy. I told her that I would do it by myself and she told me not to.
Why did she put the Ouija board away so quickly when we were finished? Did my sister see Mary when she did it and was too afraid to tell me because she did not want to scare me? Those questions I may never know.
