The Demon

Hello there. This is the story of the demon inside of my once dream home. When I was 10 years old (I’m 23 now) I moved into the most beautiful house (with my sister, mother and father) I had ever seen. It had a pool, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, it was enormous to me. I loved it.

About a month later, I started seeing and hearing things. I saw a shadow in my bedroom doorway. It was around 2:00 am. I screamed and when my mother and father got there, it had mysteriously vanished. I told them what I saw, but they didn’t believe me. I told my sister, and she believed me. But no one else did, until this.

One night, my mother was doing laundry and I was helping her. We were putting the last of the laundry into the dryer when she felt this burning feeling in her shoulder. When we got to the bathroom, she had 3 dark scratches, in the pattern of claw marks. Even my father couldn’t defend that there had to be an explanation for this. The only thing we could think of was there was a ghost inside of our home.

We hired a priest to bless our home, but as soon as he entered, he almost passed out. He said he would be back in a few weeks or so, but we didn’t like it. We knew that if we waited, there would be more encounters. But we had to. What else could we do?

It was a lovely morning. My dad went on to work. It was a weekend, so we didn’t have to go to school. I went into the living room and watched TV. My mom got on the computer to check some things and my sister was still asleep. It was around 10:30 am and then me and my mom heard my sister scream bloody murder. We ran to her room and I saw the same figure that I saw when I was in my bedroom. It was wearing a black robe like the Grim Reaper. It reached out to my sister but my mom ran in front of her and started yelling, "In the name of god and the Holy Spirit, I command you to get away from my daughter and out of this house!"

The demon made a terrible screech and vanished into black smoke. We stood there in shock, and then my mother broke into tears. I couldn’t stand seeing that thing, so I took my bible and looked for a cross and in the house I yelled over and over again, "We are here to stay! In the Name of the Holy Ghost, get out of this house!"

I heard something human like whisper to me, "Get out before it hurts you! Take your family and go to safety!"

I ran into my room and hid in my covers until my father got home. We told him everything, and he said that once the priest gets here, he will take care of it. So we stayed there a few more days. And then this happened.

Me and my family were having dinner. I wasn’t eating that much because of the experience I had with my sister and mother a few days ago, but then, in the kitchen hallway I saw that same shadow figure that almost attacked my sister and I froze in fear. My mother asked what was wrong and then she looked. We all looked and when I was un-frozen, I screamed. It screeched and came towards us. My father grabbed me by the hand and took me to the car. My mom took my sister’s hand and did the same to her. My father started the car and we drove away, leaving all of our stuff there. We only went back to get our stuff and then we never went back. I have sometimes driven by the house and I would sometimes see a shadow that is nonhuman standing in the window.

Thank you for reading my story and staying long enough to read it all. I hope you liked it.
