When I was younger, my friends and I were messing around one Halloween night, and we decided to have a séance to see if we could contact any spirits. The first spirit we contacted was named Violet. She was a 9-year-old girl who longed for friends in the "human world". My friends and I spent time talking with her and learned a lot about her. At one point, to get our attention, Violet even tapped the Ouija Board after we had stopped using it (mind you, none of us was near it). We became close friends with her and still remain in contact with her today.
The next day, we were so excited about contacting Violet that my friends made their own Ouija Boards, and we discovered that we all have ghosts following us. Some of the spirits we contacted, like Manny, turned out to be not as friendly as led us to believe. They kept tricking us into believing that they were other ghosts, and saying rude things to us. We told them not to follow us, and finally when they agreed we found new, nicer ghosts.
One of the nicer spirits was Irene. She was 22 when she died. Some of the things she liked to do included rock climbing and volleyball. Although I've never been rock climbing, I am on a volleyball team and I found it helpful, and sometimes a little distracting, to have her with me. Once she even stopped a ball dead in its tracks to let me know she was there supporting me. Irene and I have become like sisters and I look forward to our friendship together.
