All right, it's been awhile since my last story. This one is a continuation of that one, so if you haven't read "Playing a Game" then read it before reading any further. Now, it has been awhile since my last story, but my stepsister encouraged me to finish this two-part chronicle and give everyone what they've been waiting for (and I'm sorry for making everyone wait so long).
Well since the incident with the Ouija board, several things happened. Firstly, the night after the events that happened in Part one, we decided to bring Chelsie's mom upstairs to practice it with us. First, we used the dowsing rods for a while, so that we could warm everything up. The strange thing was that they worked very well when I used them, but slow when Chelsie was asking, and when her mom asked questions, the reaction was completely bizarre. The rods would go in opposite directions! Every time we asked, or we asked things about the spirit that was around her, we could not get a clear response. We eventually got tired of it and began to set up the Ouija board. Being as Christian as I am, I went through prayer and blessed everything but the people in the room. Now, in hindsight, that was a bad idea. I should have been praying over Vickie (stepsister's mom) and Chelsie (stepsister) because of what happened during the session.
Our Ouija session continued relatively normally, however, there was something different about the atmosphere. It was somehow heavier than the nights before. We were trying to contact a spirit for Vickie. Now I suppose that the flaw in our logic was that we were not trying to contact a particular spirit. Just an angel that was around her. That was where we went wrong. We tried asking for a name. It spelled out "EMMA." When we asked if it had a surname, the pointer moved to "Yes." We asked for it, and the pointer seemed to struggle for a few seconds, before tentatively going to "X" and then "No" and then the pointer began to move to the edge of the board very quickly. Out of curiosity, I kept all of our hands on it. It went all the way off the board and started moving across the floor, at which point we did something stupid. Rather than try to move the pointer to goodbye (I didn't know I was allowed to do that at the time), we picked it up and placed it back in the middle. Then we said goodbye, and the pointer moved to goodbye.
Then we called up Gabriel (the kinder spirit from the nights before). We began to ask a few questions, but I noticed something odd about the way that the planchette was moving. The first couple of times we had talked to this particular spirit, the planchette had moved straight to each letter, and the little plastic needle had stopped dead center on each letter. The responses had been clearer the first two nights. On the particular night I'm writing about, the planchette would move around the board a little before coming to a halt that would usually be so close to the edge of a letter that I would have to bend over the board to make sure it was on a letter at all. The answers seemed rather garbled as well. The atmosphere in the room began to feel evil. We were uneasy, a little nauseous, and trembling a bit. Finally, Chelsie got scared, and refused to join us. We then promptly ended the session, telling the spirit goodbye. The planchette moved to goodbye.
I picked up the dowsing rods again. Vickie and I were wondering what had happened during the Ouija board session, so we decided to speak to the spirit that we had been communicating with all night. Again, we could not get a clear answer, but slowly, both rods began to be completely taken over. One of them would move very quickly, and the other would slowly point in the direction that the other one would. I could tell that they were being taken over by something evil, because Vickie asked, "Are you from Hell?" They pointed to Yes. "Get out. Get away from me! Leave me alone." The rods slowly pointed to No, so I dropped them. We were all freaked out at that point, and decided to break the Ouija board. We shattered the planchette and tore the board to pieces.
Afterwards was probably the weirdest part. For Vickie, nothing seemed to happen. Whichever demon was talking to us probably was already with her. For Chelsie, it took her four months just to go back to sleep in her room (which is where we held our sessions) again. She said that whenever she was in there, she could feel an evil presence, and it made her uneasy, so she couldn't sleep. She slept on her living room couch for a long time. For me, some very strange things began to happen. When I got home (in Texas), I began seeing this white, ghostly figure walking down the hall at night while I tried to sleep (my room has full view of two hallways, since it was meant to be more of a sitting room).
One night my mom confirmed this by calling to me: "Robby, will you shut my door? I keep seeing this lady walking around in the hall." That scared me a lot.
Then on Halloween night, around midnight, I had finished my late-night trick-or-treating with my friends, and my stepsister, Chelsie, called me and told me something. "I did a bit of research on those names we found. I couldn't find any names matching Yixly or Ohkikurix, but I did find something interesting. The name of a demon that I found listed on a lot of sites is Xaphan. It's spelled a lot like Xaffer and sounds like it, too. I think you may be haunted by a demon." After talking to her, I turned around, and right in plain view, I saw a gigantic (too big to be my mom or step-dad. They're both short) black-cloaked figure walk in my room, stand there for a second or two, and then walk out. I told it to go away and leave me alone.
In five different isolated incidents after that I saw him again, but then I haven't seen him since mid-December of 2008. Chelsie was finally able to sleep peacefully in her room. The white lady stopped walking the halls. Everything has gone back to normal. One thing that I noticed though is that the dowsing rods don't work as quickly as they used to for me, which is a bummer for me.
I hope you enjoyed this two part, long-awaited story, and that my "cheap shot" from part one is now justified (ha-ha).
If you have any information that you can share that would help me in any way, or you have some tips for me when I next use the Ouija board, then please feel free to comment!
