So yesterday I promised after my Ouija board story to share with you the Seance nightmare I lived through. You can go back and read the Ouija board one if you haven't caught up yet. Back to the story, this happened somewhere around my 17th year and it has stayed with me for a long time. A good example of why you don't want to play with things you don't understand.
A group of friends that were really interested in the paranormal decided it would be a good idea to see if we could do a seance and conjure up some spirit. We attempted this several times without any luck so as a joke I suggested we try to bring back Vlad Tepes. I know, me and my obsession with vampires! So we lit some candles, black because you know we were young and black was the color of spirits in our minds then. Sitting around the kitchen table we closed our eyes and the leader of our little group, she was reading a witch book so that gave her credentials, began her chant.
We were all pretty serious about this seance stuff so we kept quiet and our eyes closed as we concentrated on the name Vlad. After about 10 minutes, which in my opinion is a pretty long time for a bunch of teenage girls to sit quietly, the candles started to flicker. The temperature in the room seemed to drop and I personally started to get really nauseated. I asked them to stop because by this time I was feeling pretty sick. The leader of our group wasn't ready to give up because things were starting to happen. She told me just give it a few more minutes and not to break hands. We were all holding hands around the table.
My stomach had other ideas and I snatched my hands away and ran to the bathroom. I'm sure I don't need to get into the details there let's just leave it at I got very sick. We were at my house so everyone left for the night. Throughout the evening I had the most horrible nightmares about blood and war. I woke myself up screaming several times. After one of the worst nights of sleep I can remember I woke up feeling a little better and was convinced something I ate just disagreed with me the night before.
I got up and walked to the bathroom and the entire room was filled with flies. I'm not talking 10-15 flies I'm talking Amityville Horror movie amounts of flies. I'm sure there could be a logical explanation for that happening to a bathroom that was spotlessly clean without any flies in there the night before, but I just haven't found it yet. You would think that turned me off seances forever but I was young and there were several more that I was a part of years later. Those are a story for another day though.
