It Ruled the House


As a young boy my family and I traveled frequently from Australia to New Zealand due to our Father's work commitments. One of the homes we rented was in Remuera, Auckland. At least six months into the lease, there was increased tension with my parents... Fighting constantly. One night the three of us kids were home alone playing hide and seek when we heard our parents knocking at the front door. My sister went to open the door but she couldn't. Some force was preventing him to enter. Dad thought we were tricking him and began screaming at us, threatening punishment. Hysterically Mum put her hand on the handle and the door opened instantly. From then on a long series of weekly events happened. Flowers pots turned upside down, objects disappeared, light switches turned on and off and more scarily fresh cuts would mysteriously appear on dad's forehead.

We ended the lease before it destroyed the family. I'm sure "IT" had followed us over the years as too many other unexplained things have happened.

Dear James,

It seems you have a more powerful entity than a poltergeist, a demon perhaps. Demons are fond of creating discomfort, chaos, sadness, pain, suffering and many other negative things among people as to appease its dark superiors. I advise you to pray for the healing of past wounds.

Great story, I will certainly add this to my favourites.

Thank you for posting your experience and sharing it with the yourghoststories community. God bless you and take care.

Maybe the 'thing' was after your Dad or didn't like his behavior so it might have picked on him...?
