Hi, I'm Evie. I'm thirteen, but I've been reading stories on this site for a while now. I'd like to share a story that happened just last week. Note, that it's all true.
Last Saturday, my guy friends Kevin and Zack came over. Kevin brought his brother's Ouija board, so we decided to try it for laughs. Zack was skeptical, so he decided to sit out and take notes.
Kevin and I placed the board near my desk in my room. We lit a ring of candles, to 'keep away the bad spirits' as Kevin put it. Zack turned off all the lights and sat on my bed to observe.
Kev and I put our index fingers on the pointy-thingy, and Kev asked, 'Are there any ghosts, spirits, poltergeists, supernatural beings, etc. in this room right now?'
The pointer(excuse, cause I dunno what it's called) started to move. We thought it would point to 'YES', but instead, it started to spell out a word, 'ONEGHOST'. I honestly thought it was Kevin playing with me, so I smirked and asked, 'Well are you a dangerous ghost? Gonna eat our brains or something?'
The pointer spelt out, 'IMPOSSIBLE'.
Kevin started to freak out a little. 'No more stupid questions, Ev,' he said to me.
Then, Kevin asked the 'ghost', 'What's your name?'
The pointer spelled, 'MARLIN'
'Okay, Marlin, How'd you die,' I asked.
'SHOT' was the answer.
Kevin freaked and took his hand off the pointer, but I kept on.
We asked him loads of questions, and soon, got tired of it.
'We have to go,' I said, 'Bye.'
The pointer rapidly moved to 'NO'.
That was a problem, because, according to Kev, when a spirit refuses to leave, he/she'll remain with you. Well, we had no choice but to keep talking to Marlin.
'I'm going home now,' announced Zack after a while. We kept talking to Marlin for about half an hour.
We really had to leave soon so I said, 'Marlin, we really have to go, but I'll call you up sometime, okay?'
'OKAY' spelt the board. As the instructions said, we flipped the board over. As soon as we did that, all the candles went out at once.
A few days later, we contacted Marlin again, just as we promised. I haven't spoken to him since, but Kevin still talks to him. Zack thinks this is seriously wrong and 'evil' as he says it. I don't feel right about talking to a dead person, but Kevin thinks it's okay. What people said about the boards, though, that we shouldn't mess with them, I disagree, especially after meeting someone friendly as Marlin.
