Scary Encounters #3: The Ouija Board

Now... it won't be October if there isn't an Ouija board involved!

Looking back, I think I'm glad that I missed out on the Ouija board night with a couple of friends. I remember spending it with my boyfriend and his friend back in late November a few years ago. 

My friends, Ryan, Kevin, and Sergio were all gathered at Ryan's house for another night of games and movies. Ryan brought along his aunt's Ouija board he found, whom bought it from a thrift store ages ago. As soon as I heard that his aunt bought it from a thrift store... that when I knew something was about to go down.

Ryan was the type of believe that the Supernaturals don't exist and was always ready to prove it to you. Kevin and Sergio both believe in the Supernatural, or at least, something out of this world.

After finishing the movie, Ryan brought out the Ouija board and got extremely hyped up and talked Kevin and Sergio into playing it. They were well aware that they couldn't take their hands off the pointer. 

It began with Ryan asking simple questions such as, 'Is anyone there?', 'Are you a boy or girl?', etc. 

According to all three guys, eventually someone answered. All three of them swore that they never pushed the pointer on their own. The spirit answering was a female figure. 

Ryan, wanting to prove that they don't exist, asked 'Why don't you show yourself?' and 'Make a move'. 

There was no answer.

Kevin, taunting the spirit said 'Is it because you're ugly?'

Still no answer. They decided to stop playing the game and go home. While they were at home, things started happening. Ryan told me he experienced chills and heard uncommon noises throughout his house that night. Normally, it's quiet. 

Sergio, whom didn't participate much but still had his fingers on the pointer said his 7/8 ft. tall Christmas tree suddenly fell down in the middle of the night.

And worst of all was Kevin's experience. He claimed the spirit followed him back to his house. While he was doing his own thing, he'll experience chills now and then. By the time he went to sleep, he was awoken up in the middle of the night. He told me he saw a shadowy figure of a woman bent down at the end of his bed and his room got extremely cold. He didn't have the nerves to say anything but his first instinct was to turn on his lamp. 

When he looked back to his bed, the figure was gone.

When I was a kid, I desperately wanted to try the Ouija board. I didn't know where to get them so I eventually gave up trying to get one. A few years ago, I found out that Toys R Us told them... I didn't buy one for myself but I bought one of my friend as a birthday gift... needless to say, it's still sitting in his closet, wrapped and untouched. 

I've read many things about the board, and no matter how tempting it might be, I don't think I will ever be brave enough to sit through one session with the board.

'Scary Encounters' is a mini segment that features true horror stories; it's a 4 week segment, starting on every Mondays of the October until the last Monday of the month, leading up to Halloween. Check out week 1, week 2, and week 4!
