My story starts off like many other stories you have read, I'm sure. My husband is in the military and is currently deployed. On Friday nights, a few of my girlfriends come over to my house for girl's night. We usually cook dinner, watch a movie, have a drink or two, and often times we play a board game.
Friday night, about three weeks ago, the girls filtered in around the usual time (6 pm) or so. Everyone was there except for one of the ladies. We all got started cooking while we were waiting for the last woman to arrive. (We were making lasagna.) When all of the prep work was done, and the pasta was in the oven baking, the door bell rang. It was the last lady. She came inside and apologized for being late, but she said that she wanted to stop and pick something up on her way to my house. She held up a box still wrapped in plastic. It was an Ouija board. Apparently, she stopped at Toys-R-Us to get a new game and decided that this would be a lot of fun. The other girls squealed with delight. (I used to be a very active member of my church back home, but haven't really even attended regularly in a long time due to moving around so much. Anyway, I have a healthy wariness of contacting spirits.) I didn't want to be the wet blanket of the bunch, so I went along with it and pretended to be excited too.
After dinner and some chatting, we went into the living room and opened up the Ouija board, lit some candles and turned out the light. We each placed two fingers on the planchette. The plastic felt so cheap under my finger tips. I was telling myself that it wasn't going to work, after all, it was from Toys-R-Us! I was still nervous though. We decided to go around the circle and take turns each asking a question. I started. I asked if there was anyone with us. We waited a moment for a response, but nothing happened. My friend next to me asked the same question, again nothing happened. The next person asked if anyone wanted to communicate with us. The planchette slowly moved to YES. We all gasped and accused one another of moving it. The next person asked the name of the person who moved the planchette. It responded, SILAS. We began asking Silas dumb questions like; what my dog's name is, how old one girl was, answers everyone there already knew. We never really asked anything about "Silas" other than what its name was. After asking it a bunch of dumb questions, we decided end the session. I wasn't scared while everyone was there with me, but when they all left, I started to feel uneasy. I slept with the lights on that night.
A few days later, I still felt wary being in my house alone. I always felt like someone was there. I kept telling myself that I was being silly. I didn't really have any reason to feel that way until the beginning of last week. I started finding things in odd places. For example, instead of my keys being on the key rack by the front door, they were in the bathtub. I found a glass broken on the kitchen floor, my DVDs were all over the living room, and early this morning, my bedroom door slammed shut. It scared me so badly. It's a 4 day weekend and my friends are with their hubbies. I'm scared to be alone, and none of this stuff seems to be happening to any of them. I have been praying for protection and telling whatever seems to be here to go away, but it's not working. I'm not sure what to do.
