Too Scary To Tell

May 2003

When I was 12 years old, I am now 22; my friend, "Jane" and I were obsessed with the Ouija board. We would play it constantly, as it worked so well for us! Well, one night Jane slept over my house, we were up playing with the Ouija board most of the evening and decided to go to bed.

Now, before I go any further with this story, I will describe the layout of my room at the time. My bed was next to a wall with the wall on the right side of the bed, in between the wall and the bed, there was about a one foot space and there was an old ice cream bucket with an empty fish bowl with some marbles and an air pump in it sitting on the floor in that space between my bed and the wall. The bucket was toward the foot of the bed. Anyway, that's all you really need to know as far as the layout of my room goes.

Back to the story, so we had decided to go to bed and we were lying there talking a little and trying to sleep, when that old ice cream bucket started shaking. We could not see it as the lights were out, but it was quite loud. There was no way either of us could have been doing it as it was just physically impossible for either one of us to reach it and we were so scared that we were holding onto each other for dear life. There was no one else in the house except for my mom and step-dad who were sleeping in the next room. Anyway, when the bucket would shake, it would do so on and off with a few minutes in between and when it was shaking, it would get louder and louder; it was shaking quite violently. In fact, it was so loud that it woke up my mom and she came into my room to scold us and said that if we didn't stop making all that noise that my friend was going to have to leave.

Of course when she walked into my room, the shaking stopped and we tried to tell her what was happening but she did not believe us. So after she left, I said, "whatever it is that is doing that, please stop"! The bucket gave one more loud, violent rattle for about 5 seconds and then just stopped. I don't know if we conjured up something from the Ouija or if it was telekinesis, as we were at the prime age for it... all I know is it happened.

The next day, we asked the Ouija what it was that was causing the bucket to shake like that and it just spelled out that it was "too scary to tell."

Who knows what it was, but I feel lucky to have experienced it. I've had some other occurrences as well, perhaps I'll write about them at a later date.
